Dream Job

I have always been The Secret believer, even far long before I found it. Thus, unsurprisingly, I have always got everything I dreamed of, from a simple wish for dinner to the love of my life. However, there was this little thing that I seemed to hardly get; a job.

I was an English teacher back in my home country, so when I moved to Spain in 2011, being a teacher was one of my biggest desires. Yet, I struggled a lot to find a teaching job because I am not a native English speaker and I didn’t have any further teaching qualifications. I did get several calls for interviews, but those English academies never called me back to say ‘Congratulation! You’ve got the job!’

I decided to get myself ready. I took TEFL courses to get myself qualified. I can’t change the fact that I am not a native speaker (though most of the academies want native teachers), so I just focused on being me. I said to myself often ‘I may not be a native speaker, but I speak very fluent English and I can teach. I am a great teacher!’

I bought The Magic and I applied its teachings. Whenever I remembered, I would say ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you for my dream job, which is everything I have always wanted to be and which offers me everything I have always wanted to receive in a work place.’ I truly believed with all my heart that I did already have my dream job.

I had my own ups and downs. Before I got my summer camp teaching job, I was a street sweeper. Yes, I swept the street. I worked as a street sweeper for 2 days. It was a job given by the government for immigrants. I couldn’t get a better job because I didn’t have my diploma validated to Spanish educational system. Thus, I merely got that job. I applied a job as a summer camp monitor in a nearby school, but they didn’t want me because I couldn’t speak Spanish well.

I was terribly sad. I wanted to teach so much and I thought that monitor job was the way out. I, of course, didn’t want to end up as a street sweeper. I am better than that! I deserved to get a great job. I cried and I was devastated. However, I found my way back and managed to be positive again. I thanked God for giving me that sweeping job because, at least, I got a job! That was something to be grateful for!

On the second day of my sweeping job, I got a call from the camp and told me that I was accepted to be one of the teachers. Of course, without a doubt, I accepted the job. This job was surely better than sweeping. I could teach again and I was happy.

After summer camp, I applied more teaching jobs. This time I was a lot more confident because I had already got a teaching experience in Spain. And yes, most of the academies, which I sent my application to, called me back and asked for an interview. I went for the interviews and they went really well. I couldn’t wait to know the result, which is today.

Without a doubt, I got the job. I am so happy for that. Yet, a strange thing happened when I read the email from the director. I was happy, but I wasn’t surprised. I knew all along that the job was mine, so it is. I start to work in September, so I still have lots of time to prepare my moving. I am so happy and I can’t stop saying thank you. Again, my dream has come true.
