Hmmm... what's new...
Oh ya... I finally got a job :D
About 2 months ago I saw the add on Kompas about a company that looked for a Indonesian teacher. I thought it was a teacher for expatriate or what, so I applied. Surprisingly two days after I sent the applications I was called bye the company and asked me to do the interview. I was surprised because I didn't expect them to call me that soon... if you understand what I am talking.
So I went there, and when the HRD manager interviewed me she said that she wanted to offer another job. She asked me whether I've heard about autistic children. I said I've heard but I don't know too much. She offered me the job to be the private teacher of an autistic children. I said I have to think about it, and I also stated the fact that I have no experience in teaching autistic child. She said it's OK I can take the psychologic test first. So I did the test. Actually I wasn't very interested about the job, because I understand that autistic child needs extra attention and I can't promise her I can give. I'm not saying that I wont give my attention, but let's think about the worst. Not to mention the very long working hour. She expected me to work form 9am-9pm... phewww
So I said maybe I have to meet the child and the parents first. She said she would call me and arrange a meeting. When I finally came home I was sure that I don't want to take the job. But few weeks later, Josh went to Surabaya and Bali and unfortunatelly he took my charger. So for about 4 days my cell wasn't active. When I finally can turn my cell on I found about 5 txt messages from the HRD manager I met and 3 voice msgs from the parents of the child who is the HRD manager's boss' wife. But of course I didn't know who was the person that left a voice msg on my cell so I called the number. Then, oohh I'm getting onfused with all the position. So let's use initial. The HRD manager's is H and the mothe rof the child who called me is R. When I called Mrs. R she told me a bit about her children. So she has 3 children and the 1ts one is OK. The 2nd is a girl who suffers from ADHD, and her 3rd son is autistic. She gave me the brief story about them and she asked me to do an interview the day after. I agreed. Trutfully at that time I still want to refuse the job, but I think it will be better and polite if I refuse it after I hear the story. And there was I, the day after the call, I came to their house. Mr. K, her husband is the person who want to talk to me. So the two of them interviewed me. At first Mr. K read my CV and he asked whether he can use English or not. I s aid yes so he started to talked in English. At first he only asked about my background, and before I can tell them about my refution, he already asked me, whether I REALLY want this job or not. That was my opportunities!! So I told them about my point of concern, and how I was afraid I couldn;t do that because I understand perfectly that it will be so hard for the children if I quit after let's say 3 months. And I told them also that of course I can still work to them eventhough the children doesn't like me or stuff, because at this time I really need a job. But they will just waste their money for nothing!! I said that eventhough I really need a job, I don't want to take any job without think about the onsequencies. Well maybe I would take any job, but not this one (if I still have doubt) because I like children and I'm very concern about their happiness.
I didn't know whether it was a good answer or not but I knew that I was very sure about that. But surprisingly they liked my answer. So they offered me this. I can be the shadow teacher for their 2nd daughter -shadow teacher is the teacher that observe the child at school and then make a lesson plan for the home schooling- and after that I can work on his club. He has a club that he wants to re-launched, and he likes my qualifications. So he offered me to be the project member. Geezzz.... I never expect that!! That was so great..... And he understood about the working hour problem, so my schedule is Mon-Fri I was the shadow teacher from 8.30-3.00, and after that I go to the club untill 6. (Fortunatelly the location is not very far and his driver will take me there.) On Sat and Sun I worked from 12-11pm and my free day is Wednesday. I know it's still a very long working hour, but he offered me a very good compentation :D
