It's been 3 months since I graduated from UiTM. I was kinda sorting myself, my heart, my mind, thought about what I'm gonna do next, to further my studies or to get a job. Decision has been made, get a job is priority.
My second interview with UEM Land. For fresh graduates, they offered to be their trainers under Young Executive Scheme (YES). Unfortunately, the training contract is actually for 1 year with allowance RM1200 per month and based at Cyberjaya. Yes, too far. So the result, failed.
Filla, Aimi, Wanie and me went to UEM, and ate at Steak House, Serdang ;)
My latest interview was with Kumpulan Ikram Sdn Bhd based at Kajang, about 1 hour from my home. I applied for an assistant lecturer position at their college KLIUC, but they offered me a position of civil engineer. But this time, I screwed up myself. They asked me about Structure Analysis, the subject i learned 2 years ago with Dr. Azmi, and I seriously hated that class. The question was 'what is the difference between Stiffness method and Flexibility method', and my answer was, 'I can't remember'. Nice. Most of the questions they asked ended up with my simple answer 'I can't remember'. So again, I failed.
But although I failed, I never regret I went for the interviews. I gain experiences through it and I learn so many things about myself. One, I didn't make any preparation before the interviews. Padan muka. Two, I realize that I talked almost 100% only the truth during interviews. I told them I want to further my master studies for the next intake in September. So, which company wants to take this only-want-to-be-a-temporary-engineer as their staff, huh?
fyi. my very first outing wearing scarf tehee ;)
So, I'm learning to tell white lies for this time being. My 3rd brother acts as the interviewer, my 2nd brother as my advisor on which company is good which not, my sister-in-law in Holland checked the quality of my resume, the others are the supporters.. and bankers ;)
