Solving your #FirstJobProblems with Sun Postpaid Best Value Plan 599

So you have just joined the ranks of the employed adults of society. You are starting to feel good about yourself, proud even. The world is your oyster and the opportunities for you are endless. Then you start to realize that your education has not prepared you enough for many of the challenges that you are about to face as you make this important transition in your life.

#FirstJobProblems

1. Starting at the bottom of the food chain. Unless you are an heir to a management post in a company that your family owns, you will most definitely get an entry-level job which often requires long hours, low pay, and a lot of monotonous work.
Some fresh graduates have turned up their noses at these jobs or quit right away because they feel that they can do better. One thing they fail to realize is the opportunity for learning. Sometimes, the most valuable lessons that will help you later in life, you will have learned when you were still just starting up. If anything, it will make you understand the business better and hone your skills before you start taking on bigger responsibilities. If you want to move up fast, always come to work prepared – read up about your tasks online, set a calendar alarm and a to-do list on your mobile so you will be sure to beat all your deadlines.

2. Balancing work demands with personal life. So you have to miss the next big Zedd event because sadly, you have a shift that night and you have just used up your last sick day or family emergency excuse. You don’t have to feel left out as you can always keep up with your friends via Snapchat or Viber. Virtual partying isn’t bad and it doesn’t give you hangovers.

If you have to spend long hours at work, keep in touch with your family or your jealous boyfriend via text message or even a quick Skype video call during your break.

Switching over to SUN

I have a confession to make. I am not a big fan of cheap items and services. I don’t settle for brands just because they are cheaper, I don’t go out of my way to check out discount items and sales, and I would much rather spend more on a good meal than spend less on food that is barely edible.

That said, I do believe in value for my money. Sometimes, more expensive things aren’t exactly better. And sometimes, brands can have all the right gimmicks, image, and publicity but their service remains intolerable. This is the reason why it is important to always spend smart and choose better especially on services that affect our daily lives.

Gadget shopping for the new year

To welcome the new year, we got a few upgrades to our current gadgets! It was really about time too! Since we usually skip one update, we make full use of the gadgets that we buy before we replace them. So this year, we retired our old iPhone 4s for a 5s and the older iPad 3 Retina for an iPad Air.

This is pretty much the happiest that a gadget junkie can get… until maybe when it’s time to replace my Macbook Pro but that would probably take a few more years.

Less than a month ago, I posted about how I was able to get an item that was no longer available in PH stores by shopping online using GCASH American Express Virtual Pay. Not only was I able to get a hard-to-find item, I also saved almost 50% of how it was supposed to cost locally by getting the best deal online. (Check out details here)
