The job I love

I had been out of the workforce now for almost two and a half years. I stopped working in 2009 even before I got pregnant. I worked as a customer service officer for Digitel and the job stressed me. Knowing that it can be a reason for delayed pregnancy I decided to stop working. Back then, my husband and I had been planning of having a baby (which was successful by the way) when he comes home on April of 2010, so I  resigned, decided to de-stress myself and relax. 
During that time, I had been eyeing a job as an online English tutor to Japanese students and luckily I got accepted. I enjoyed the job so much, most specially the flexible work schedule. My shift is at night time  (7PM-12MN) so the mood is so relaxed and laid back. My workplace is at the comfort of my own room. How cool is that? Actually if I wanted to get a day job, it will still fit in my schedule but I just suffice myself in this job and just relied on some online selling stints for extra cash that time.

My job is to teach students who are actually Japanese professionals to speak English. The Japanese are very patriotic that is why in Japan, the Japanese language is the primary language used by everybody. Being professionals as they are, they needed to learn and be fluent with the English language because they needed it in their jobs. Aside from that, they all need their English speaking skills during their travels. I have learned so much from my students as much as they had from me (I hope!). Actually I did not consider it as a job but rather much more of a past time. I only need to talk to my students-ask them how their day was, engage them  in a conversation, correct their pronunciation and/or grammar and that's it!

The best thing about this job aside from the work itself is the company who sees to it that employees/tutors are satisfied. The company once in a while launches some cool perks for the employees and they they conduct regular employee surveys to check on the tutor's thought, feelings and behavior so that they will be able to know what to do about it most specially if there are certain issues to address. I miss this job so much and if ever my mom duties will permit me in the future I will still go back and become an online English tutor again. 

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for an employee survey company and was compensated. However, the views and opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.

I hardly leave responses, but I looked at a few of the responses on
"The job I love". I do have a few questions for you if it's okay. Could it be only me or do a few of the remarks look like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I'd like to
follow you. Could you post a list of the complete urls of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
