Perks of Being an Applab-er

Getting the job you’ve always dreamt of having isn’t really easy. I would know because I’ve been in over three to four different jobs in a span of three years. Why the jobs shift every now and then? Well, my principle is: Why Work if you aren’t having fun at it?

I’ve tried working at a call center to being a shadow writer. I’ve heard the words “Good Job” and “The Hell is this shit?” from bosses. I’ve cried in bathroom stalls because of negative feedback and enjoyed hefty incentives on jobs done well. Yet, I’ve never lasted more than a year or so in a company. Why? If I don’t see growth in myself within the company or if I notice I’m not really happy with the work, I leave.

Thankfully, now I have managed to find not only one job I’m really happy in but two. So what’s the first job?

That would be being a news writer for an Australian based company. The best part about this job is all I have to write about are articles on the latest Hollywood news. So if you guys want to know all the latest about Hollywood celebrities, movies and books, then you know who to ask (apart from Google that is).

What’s my other job? Well, being a blogger for two awesome app development companies in the Philippines – AppLabs Digital Studios Inc and Kid Apps Inc.

Who exactly are we? Established in 2011, AppLabs Digital Studios Inc. is a technology-based media company headquartered in Eastwood City, Philippines. The company aims to be THE premier applications development company on the planet. Chairman of the Board Azhar Khan and Managing Director Oliver Ian Atienza are the founders of the company.

The company is behind the first ever Filipino made application, Maddie & Matt’s A to Z’s of Good Manners and Values. It’s a brilliant application available for free at the Apple App Store that teaches kids of today all there is to know about manners and values.

So, what’s so good about being an AppLab-er? Apart from the work not being stressful, the workplace is a totally awesome place to work in. It doesn’t even feel like work when I come into the office. Hilariously, even AppLabs shares the same sentiments and principles as mine: Work should be a fun and an enjoyable job.

If you’re ever in the Philippines and worrying about not having a job, fret not, because the answer lies within AppLabs Digital Studios & Kid Apps Inc. See you around here then. Crossing my fingers!

    This is a very revealing post! Just an aside, search engines frown upon phrases and sentences that are or appear plagiarized. You may want to revise some of the sentences in your post if you want to rank on Google, Bing, or Yahoo. BUT this is OK, since we are only required to just write for now. And we will soon have time to explore the wonderful world of SEO.

    hello:):) I think you should’ve made a brief background of the company, I mean keep it more concise:) I couldn’t agree more with the idea of working and having fun at the same time. Anyhow, allow me to jump on the bandwagon *crossedfingers* :))))

    Again, the personal touch is nice and I think that if you included pictures of the office/s then your post will have greater impact. 🙂 See you around!
