Before 2017 ended, I was contemplating a decision to try my luck in applying for a position in our office in Nice, France. I even remembered telling this to my Dad over a bottle of wine and some nuts. After my Christmas holiday in Manila, I went back to Bangkok, invigorated. My manager called me to his office and, surprisingly, asked about the position (as it was still open), and if I’m interested. He factored in my strengths and weaknesses, aside from the fact that I’m single and it would be a great opportunity for me to grow and experience more. I told him that I was thinking about it. There were two positions open, one in Miami, FL USA and the other was in Nice, FR. While the cultural adjustment in Miami would have been easier, I have always wanted to go to Europe so I said, sure, why not? I tried for the position.
After two conference calls within three weeks, I got the position and soon, I’m bound for France. It’s going to be a new chapter for me. I remembered my sister said that if this decision made me feel excited and scared, then I should go for it.
I will definitely go for it.
From tom yum to a croissant. The comparison might not be the same but hey, the transition is happening. I’m moving out of Thailand and off to France. And it’s going to be soon! 🙂
