A Chinese international student worked as an assistant of a financial advisor at a small firm.
He then had to stop working because his work permit expired.
His PR was in process
6-month passed and no result.
Facing with uncertainty and tremendous pressure
Going back to China is not an option
What to do now?
Could I get a job after this big gap?
What if my PR didn't get approved?
Fear, Self-doubt, Negativity began to grow...
This was what he did to kill the fear
It took nearly 1.5 years for his PR to be approved
Now he could work
But he couldn't get any interview
After 2 months, we got the very 1st interview
It was a Service Clerk at a bank
He didn't make it
Now faith was the only thing we had
We kept grinding
Eventually, we got the 2nd interview with an investment fund for the Investment Analyst role.
After 3 rounds of interviews
He got the job offer
Later, he asked his boss why he was hired even though he had little experience
His boss said because we valued self-improvement and discipline
You showed your commitment by passing 3 levels of CFA and level 2 of FRM. Here we were all CFA or in progress
Get Ready before asking for an opportunity
Your day will come!
Don't give up
Keep working hard
