A New Start


Daily Dose: A New Start

Several weeks ago, I wrote about taking an exam that has the potential of opening new doors. After 3 years of searching for a new job and numerous unreplied application, I figured that it is time to take matters into my own hand and chart a new path. 

After the exam, I had thought I was borderline on passing it. The exam was notorious for having a high failure rate. According to the trainers, the passing rate is at 30%, and this includes repeated candidates. To pass at The first try is almost a miracle.

I got the result yesterday... I passed.

That means I have my foot at the door now. The next step is to find a few doors to knock. Thankfully, this new role would still allow me to write. While the frequency may be lesser, I promised the content will be useful to you as a  parent.
