And so I am working now

Sejak tamat belajar ijazah sarjana muda (read: degree) aku belum pernah bekerja. Maksud aku bekerja yang menggunakan segala kelulusan dan kemahiran yang diperoleh sewaktu belajar ijazah sarjana muda tadi. Tak mendapat peluang dan rezeki untuk itu. Setelah menganggur beberapa bulan, aku buat keputusan nak sambung belajar di luar negara pula. Motivasi utama ialah untuk merantau ke negara orang dengan duit poket yang banyak dan sedikit eskapism diri.

Tamat belajar, pulang ke kampung halaman. Kembali mencari kerja. Haru. Perasaan masih sama. Penat. Nak putus asa. The reason is because I struggle way harder as compared to when I graduated for my bachelor's degree. Kawan-kawan lain nampak macam senang je dapat kerja. Tapi biasalah. Nampak je macam senang. 

Everybody has their struggles to beat. Their own pain. Accept that.

Setelah berbulan-bulan tak ada satu pun syarikat yang telefon untuk panggil aku untuk temuduga bekerja. Sampailah ke satu minggu ni, dapat beberapa panggilan telefon. Ada bank, ada syarikat pemasaran, dan ada sebuah syarikat lain. 

So I went for the interview session on 8th June 2015. It was Ayah's birthday. I don't prepare much. I don't revise my technical knowledge. I just read stuffs on how to survive an interview well, things on attitude and all. Wear my best formal attire. And arrived 30 minutes earlier. 

It was a smooth one I must say. Not that I have a lot of experiences with a lot of interview sessions. Aku cuma pernah ditemuduga untuk PTD M41 dan gagal. Pernah sekali orang panggil, look at my qualifications and said "Oh, we are actually looking for an IT person" padahal CV tu kan dah kasi melalui mel elektronik. Why on earth dia tak tengok dulu sebelum panggil aku datang masa tu? The latest one is for an editing job and the boss wanted me to be present at the office while I prefer working from home. And I don't like his attitude nor the lady who interviewed me for PTD M41. Bad experience I must say. I was a bit traumatize even to search for jobs as I never been called to one actually.

And again I would like to stress on. Everybody has their struggles. No doubt on that.

Back to the interview with my bosses that day. I like them. I genuinely said I don't like technical stuffs. Not that I am not good with it, but I prefer doing other things especially management. And I even asked, " Do you like me already?". Fikir-fikir balik betapa tak malu-nya aku masa tu :)

If this is the best for me, I am okay with this God. Thank you. At least now I have something to focus on. Something to work on.

And so yeah, I am working now. Selamat menjalani kehidupan guys.
