Entry: I Got A Job!!! Thursday, October 21, 2004



This morning, when I woke up, serious shit tak larat nak bangun. I slept for only 2-3 hours. But when I think of how serious Encik Rahim told me about the job, I just get up from my dreams & terus mandi.

Around 9.10am, bertolak ke Glenmarie Industrial Park, Shah Alam naik skuter kesayanganku. Pagi-pagi malas la nak bawak kereta. Sure traffic jam. Kul 9.45pm, tercarik-carik aku mana la Jalan U1/35A, Persiaran Juruanalisis nih. Nasib baik jumpa. Interview aku kul 10am, but Encik Rahim ni ade hal kejap, kul 10.30am baru dia interview aku.

Rupanya Encik Rahim ni dah 60++...he's the owner of Karuda Logistics and also running an IT company with the name of Polytrans, that provides VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). Aku memula gerun gak la sbb kena interview dgn boss besar terus. Tapi dia baik gile & kasi kata-kata semangat and cerita camna dia bleh jadi successful cam skang. He said he's running the business with American style and in Islamic way. Dia dah awal-awal cakap he's not a very patient man. Habis la aku...haha...

Anyway, dia kata dia perlukan a Database Admin who handles databases of his company. Handling some billings & etc. Dia tanya aku tau SQL ke tak. Aku just jawab, I'm willing to learn it back and gain some experience. Dia kata mmg dia nak masukkan aku and suruh aku learn from zero provided with hard work. Dia nak aku built with his company. Wowww...aku pun hairan dia ckp camtu padahal aku ni tak penah keje lagi, knowledge pasal SQL pun tak berapa sgt. Dia cakap macam aku ni dapat 1st class degree plak. But I was really be frank with him that my knowledge is not that good for now. He said it's okay because he wants me to learn. Baik betul.

So, at the end of the interview, dia offer aku the Database Admin position. Aku pun grab je la since dia kata aku bleh belajar something from this and built a career with the company. Benefits pun memang menarik. Gaji pun ok for a fresh grad. He said if I'm good, within 3-4 months, he will raise my salary. Dia kata bila boleh mula kerja? Aku cakap tak kisah but next Monday would be better. Dia pun memang nak masukkan aku kerja next Monday, 25/10. Then, habis je session tu, he welcomed me to the company and salam. Fuh...the interview ended at 11.30am. Panjang lebar dia bercerita but very interesting and a very simple boss.

Alhamdulillah, rezeki di bulan Ramadhan. At last, dpt gak kerja yg berkaitan dgn degree aku. InsyaAllah, I will prove something to my boss and gain some skills & experience from it. I will do my best. Thanks to Wkdin 

As for the HSBC, blom dpt lagi result, by next week baru dpt tau. But I guess I like the database admin position more. Akhir kata, selamat bekerja utk aku sendiri. Hahahah...Isnin ni start!!!

congratulations :) upon obtaining the post...

one thing i'd like to stress on is the "running his business in the American style but Islamic way". what i'm trying to emphasize is the advancement we need, just like that taken by En.Halim, by still keeping onto our roots (or yours, rather :S ) --the Islamic way.

it's high time we learn to accept new changes and STRIVE HARD to success! and solely depend on chances. *winks*
lets work for it! *sighs-STPM is coming really soon...i feel so tired studying..both mentally and physically*
