ScIoN Goes To Japan! [日本 へ 行きます」
Congratulations! You were selected as one of those chosen few whom we will send to Japan for the final interview and examination on Feb. 23 - 27 (subject to change).Please have the following documents (all original) ready for submission by Friday, February 9, 2007:
I made it! Woohoo! I was all alone in my dorm room as all my other dorm mates were in the Girls' Lobby for the dormitory Bingo game. I felt like shouting but I thought I'd just be stupid doing it all alone. I immediatelyIMed the good news to Elma, Charity and Alou who were all online on that moment. I felt like winning the jackpot prize in the Bingo. Heck, this is better than winning the dorm bingo. It's a free trip to Japan!
So now, I have to fix my papers prior to our scheduled flight. I had trouble with regard to DOST at the DFA office. I am still included in the blacklist even though I DID NOT AVAIL of the DOST Scholarship. I have to go back again at DFA, and show them an original document that would certify that I am not a DOST scholar. Hassle! I thought I had this already fixed when I applied for my NBI Clearance almost 6 months ago!
I am 1 of 13 students who passed the 2nd interview at Toshiba-Japan. 1 of 6 from UP Diliman. 1 of 3 from the Department of EEE. I should not put this opportunity to waste. I aim to nail that job offer.
Last year, about 7 UP students were able to reach the Japan interviews; however, nobody got accepted in the end. I don't know why. I've heard that there were only 2 who got a job offer. I think they were from Ateneo and DLSU. Eventually, one declined the offer in exchange for an internship at US. So far, there is only ONE Filipino working at Toshiba Japan. I hope I'm next.
For now, I just have to study hard and finish all my academic requirements before I fly off to Japan. This would be my first time riding a plane, hahaha, and yes my first time would be international already! I just hope somebody would lend me a digicam. ;)
I would like to thank the Lord for this wonderful opportunity. I am also happy that on Feb 28, my mother would already be here in the Philippines. I think this would be the happiest moment in my life. PRICELESS. I owe Him for this. :D
