A Little Trivia

Here's a little trivia for everyone, did you know that yours truly used to work as a financial manager in one of the pre-need companies here in our country. I was recruited by a college friend as an underwriter first as I was still working as an editorial assistant in one of the women's magazine here but when I resigned from work, the company offered me a regular job, I thought about it for a while and decided to have it a go as the place of work (branch) is not that far from our house, less stress on my part. It was a fun work while it lasted but as it was a cutthroat business, you have to have the stomach to push your team to their limits, to fire people at will and to scold them about the tiniest details. I've never been a people person so to deal with a lot of staff who handles the real hard part of the work was just too much for a person whose self-esteem is just knee-high like me. I resigned after several months though my manager begged me not to, I even lied about being sick so she'll let me go *grins*. Actually, what really got me to give it all up was the series of resignations the people I worked with did, it was like loosing the very foundation of me being there, loosing friends at work is never an easy thing and I crumpled.

I remember that one of the company's more lenient measure is the Life Insurance No Medical Exam thingy, it's a good deal for almost everyone as the hassle of going through a series of medical examinations is void and if you are really sick, the chance of getting an insurance is slim but with the no medical exam policy, all that one has to do is to survive a year and the life insurance is considered okay. It's risky but for some it is worth the risk.
