What have I been doing? Recently, I have been looking for a full time job by searching on internet and newspaper as well. I applied for few jobs in last two days and surprisingly I got several calls from different companies yesterday.
It was my first time of going to a proper interview. The appointment was made at 1.30 pm but I arrived there half an hour earlier as I don't like to be late. After calling the admin for several times, I managed to find the company which is located in Bangsar.
When I stepped in to the office, I saw three people were sitting there. First come first serve, so I was the last candidate. Oh! It's so suffering to wait at the outside as I saw the candidates went in one by one. It made me feel nervous and scared. *laughed*
I went in the room at 3.30pm and came out at 4.15pm which mean the interview session took about 45 minutes. *wow* I didn't look at the watch when the interview session was going on because I had a good chat with the branch manager. When I first saw him, I was thinking how old is he actually because he looks young and friendly.
From the conversation, he told me that the company is a Singapore based company which has many branches in Malaysia and Singapore. It's an Event & Management Company which the employees will have the opportunity to travel oversea. There's something which made me feel delighted and pleased:
Manager: Do you read the Star newspaper frequently?
Me : No. My dad always buy Chinese newspaper.
Manager: Oh? You're Chinese educated? (with a little bit of shock)
Manager: If you are assigned to travel to Singapore, you'll get paid by Sing dollars. Have you been there?
Me : Never been there but I wish to travel oversea.
Manager: Oh, really? It seems like that you travel a lot, exposed to many things, and talkative.
Me : Would there be any opportunity for advancement?
Manager: You know what?
I'm really like you asking me this kind of question because only little people would ask bout it.
I can see that you are very ambitious and you got vision.
Manager: So, can you come for a briefing and final interview on Monday?
Me : Sorry, I got an appointment with my lecturer. Can we make it on Tuesday?
Manager: Okay. So, see you on Tuesday. Nice to talk to you.
Actually, I really got an appointment but not with my lecture. I'm going for another interview in Bukit Jalil this coming Monday. So, I'll compared the salary and overall benefits, then only I pick the one I want. For backup plan, I do have another interview in Damansara Utama this coming Thursday. *wink*
