Lost For Words

It has been 9 days now since I started working as a receptionist. All I thought having the job would make it easier for me as I have 8 months experience being in the crowd as a call center agent back at home. I was wrong! I get to meet and talk to people, basically the Americans and Canadians personally and I have to deal with them face to face. My first day was totally busy than I have expected. It was also my first day at work as well as my training. I have to be alert all the time. Take calls, make reservations, register a customer and even do the financial statement. Luckily, I have few backgrounds in the subject of Accounting or else I am totally nothing in this kind of job. I am lost for words at times that I have to rephrase my sentence, words, and even correct my grammars in my mind so the people will have a better understanding when I am talking to them personally or simply just taking a phone call.

Here I am now, battling and struggling in the real corporate world. Learning the basics and starting from scratch again! I know in myself that I am not a dumb. It takes a while for me to learn. I know I am a fast learner. My mind can't absorb easily all the task that has been put to me in one day but I will do better until I can get the hang of it. I simply smile at my own mistakes. Nobody is perfect. For sure, a lot of people struggle too in their first day, first week, first month of the job but in time I will be fine. I will take it easy, one at a time, step by step because learning is a process. At the end of the day, I know everything will be paid off because I will earn my own salary came from my own sweat and hard work.
