Landing a Job in SEAIR InFlight Magazine.

From time to time, I had to pinch myself to see if I'm really awake. I was sitting there in my own office space, an L-shaped table positioned in the corner --the computer placed in the middle, a desk tray on the right, and two magazine racks on the left. It was official. From this day forward, I will be coming in the very same office until I get tired of it. Hahaha!

I can't say I feel like I am the editorial assistant. Not yet, at least. I guess I'll realize that the moment the issue comes out. Really, I can't wait!

It's so surreal. Coming into a job with so much responsibilities already. A little overwhelmed, I have to admit, but I'm more much grateful! I don't know. I guess it's the feeling that I know that I did it on my own, without any connections, whatsoever. I saw the opening, I applied for it, and I got accepted. It was a faster process than I have expected. But the bottom line is...I went for it and I got it. How perfect can it get?

It's really the first time I felt like I've done it. I have always said that I wanted to work be a part of a magazine where I can go dine, shop, even travel. I guess I just got lucky.

I didn't tell a lot of people that I'm working in InFlight already. There were only a handful of them I told about, every one of them belonging in the INNER circle. Before I knew it, extended families knew about it, people from college found out about it, and neighbors even talked about it. My goodness! I tell you...this is one of those days I felt like I was a celebrity. At's out in the open. I no longer have to tell people.

My final word on the matter...

Margie has just landed in SEAIR InFlight Magazine.

  2. Hello, I can't help but smile on your experience on landing this awesome job. I've been searching for openings too in different inflight magazines in the PH but I couldn't find any. I hope to be a travel writer/photographer as my career. May I ask where you found the opening? Thank you!
