You really do learn something new every day. For example, I learned the true meaning of the word ‘risible’. Didn’t expect it to be spelled like that, but at least one more thing makes sense now: when my Year 11 English teacher said my oral book presentation was risible, it wasn’t a compliment. All these years later, and I finally realise.
That said, I should really concentrate on doing THIS job, seeing as it has a steep learning curve and all. That’s what they told me, anyway. So far it’s mostly just been sitting her and answering calls from people who’d like to buy a fancy home. I find a buyers advocate for Melbourne couples that suit their needs from our database, and they’re happy forevermore with having the help finding a dream home. That’s another thing I need to research. Honestly, I just stumbled into this job, and it’s the best gig I’ve ever had. I have this massive list of housing terms to learn, because apparently we also work with real estate agents and conveyancers and all sorts, but I haven’t had to deal with that side yet. I’m not ‘advanced enough’.
Really, it’s just knuckling down and doing a bit of a search. I know I wanted to get my big break in the frenetic world of the property ladder, and this is probably it, but still…it’s not really all that dynamic. Maybe this is just a stepping stone. I’ll establish lifelong and valuable business connections with a few of Melbourne’s best property advocates. They’ll give me a job looking at fancy condominiums, and then I’ll find my true calling. I suppose I WILL end up with a vast knowledge of housing terms…and that’s really nothing to sneeze at. Still…it’s a lot of sitting, waiting for the phone to ring.
Maybe it’s a test. A test of PATIENCE.
