I am currently working as an editorial staff of an entertainment magbloid (magazine-tabloid). It is my task to proofread submitted articles, write photostories and tag the photos submitted to us by our photographers. It is a tough job because you need to re-read some of the articles and check if there are misspelled words, inconsistencies among others. As someone who works in the entertainment industry, I have to keep myself updated with the latest showbiz gossips that will capture the interest of the fans and detractors alike.

Making people happy through showbiz chikkas can be a very tough job, you know? :P

    There’s no such thing as a tough job as long as you face every obstacle with a positive attitude and passion for what you do!

    Echos lang! Pwede na bang pang Miss U ang sagot? Hehehehe.

    Sasali ako dito. Hehehe.

    The toughness of a job or even every single thing just depends on how people look at it. Haha. I don’t think I have any tough job, all I do everytime is lie on my bed and do nothing.

    Tough Job: Blogger

    Being a full time BLOGGER is such a tough job. It’s a one man show. I’m the one who writes, editor, marketer, picture taker for the events, link builder, blog designer rolled into one. Whew!

    And I must update my blogs regularly or else the numbers of visitors will decline which means my earnings will decline also. Plus, the fact that I’m an independent now, no mama to run into when I got no money 😉

    Toughest Job Philippines
    Name: May Ann Saturno
    Occupation: Transcriptionist-Editor

    Tulad ng mga call center, ang transcription ay part din ng BPO industry. Tunog sosyal lang pero hindi hamak na mas mahirap, mas komplikado at mas mababa ang kinikita ng mga transcriptionist kaysa sa mga call center agents at iba pang BPO agents.

    Ang transcription ay maaaring hatiin sa medical, legal, entertainment at general transcription. Sa company na pinagtratrabahuan ko, all around ka dapat dahil iba’t ibang files ang maaaring maibigay sa amin hindi katulad ng sa iba na kung medical, medical lang.

    Para maipaliwang muna ng mabuti ang aking trabaho, ganito yan. May voice file na dinictate ng mga dictators at pagkatapos ay itratranscribe namin ito. Parang encoder ang kaibahan lamang ay mayroon kaming pinakikinggang nagsasalita sa headphones. Kailangang accurate at maayos ang pagkakagawa dahil ang mga outputs ay maaaring mga medical records, court scripts, mga subtitles sa pelikula at iba pang documents.

    Sa lahat ng aking mga naging trabaho, ito na yata ang pinakamahirap. Kailangan mong gamitin ang mga kamay sa page-encode, tainga sa pagdinig ng mga recorded dictations, paa sa pag-apak ng foot pedal (yes, may foot pedal pa para ma-rewind, ma-play/pause at forward ang dictation, parang mananahi, noh?) at siyempre ang pinakaimportante sa lahat ay ang mga mata at ang pag-iisip. Kailangan ng common sense. Walong oras sa isang araw, limang beses sa isang linggo ganito ang ginagawa ko.

    Walong oras nakaupo, nakakapagod, hindi lang ang katawan kung hindi pati rin ang utak dahil dapat magaling rin sa English, mabilis mag-type, malakas ang pandinig, marunong sa computer, may alam sa legal at medical terminology, dapat ring ma-identify ang mga discrepancies sa mga reports. Parang nasa kamay ng mga transcriptionist ang buhay ng mga pasyente dahil dapat tama ang gamot, ang dose nito, ang sakit at ang lunas ng doctor. Ganoon din sa mga legal files at sa mga subtitles. Hindi ba’t nakakainis kapag mali ang mga subtitles sa mga pelikula. Diyan naman pumapasok ang aking pagiging editor, dapat i-double check ang mga files, papakinggan muli ang mga ito, aayusin ang grammar, verb tenses, spelling, punctuation atbp.

    Ang pagiging transcriptionist ay hindi man tulad ng ibang gawain na kailangan ng pisikal na lakas pero talagang nakakapagod dahil kinakailangan nito ang talas ng pag-iisip kaya ko nasabing ito ang aking toughest job.
