Job Interview Experience

Today coursemates and I went for a job interview evaluation. It was not a real job interview, lecturer from the other set was our interviewer. We have been tortured for about 8 weeks by our beloved Madam Chia. The purpose she was doing that because she wanted us to realize about nowadays competitive market. Many graduates still failed to look for a job even though they have graduated a long time ago. I think she should be teaching like this way to the future students because we were so afraid of her. In fact, we didn't have an enough courage to ask her to postpone English class which was in Raya Haji's week to the following week. Yet still I wasn't attended her class even the class was on haha. Ohh yeahh she was so angry on the next class. hahaha

I'm grateful because the interviewer was quite kind (for me). Start from the moment I entered the interview's room, she gave a smile at me and asked me to have a seat. The first question was "Tell me about yourself". I have prepared this kind of question before and she was impressed with my answer. 

The next question was "Why did you choose International Business as your major?" So, I told her about my passion about corporate world, I love to be working with business people, love meeting a new people, bla bla bla just to show her how much I am in love with business. 

Next, "How do you think about current working systems in Malaysia? Is it competitive with the international market?" Actually there was a long question but I forgot it. That kind of question was quite hard for me. Luckily, yesterday when I was about to sign in my email, on the left side on the website page there was a Dr. Mahathir's complaint about Malaysia. It was about corruption. So, I answered the interviewer that Malaysia's working system should have no corruption.. and I explained about corruption that still have in Malaysia's working systems..  but my voice was a lil bit shaky. *sigh

The tricky question was "If you say so, what should we do to eliminate corruption" Oh goshhhh, I was in silence for a quite long time. Then I remembered Dr Mahathir said corruption only can be eliminated if citizens put the nation's interest first before their own interest. It is actually come from our inner self. Ohh yeahhhh!! The interviewer seemed she was satisfied with my answer. 

The last question was "Why should we hire you? How you can contribute to this company" My answers were I have met all requirements that you need for this position, I have a good management skills, leadership skills, I also have completed my intership at you company so I already knew about the company's culture, the working systems of your company and I don't think there might be a problem for me to adapt with the working environment of the company in the future if you hire me. 

P/S Forget to mention, I'm applying for Administration Executive position at UEM Sunrise Berhad. UEM Sunrise  Berhad is a subsidiary of UEM Berhad. It is a construction and engineering company. 

I just hope that I could gain a good marks for this job interview evaluation. One burden has released. Yeah! Alhamdulillah. 

with le beloved friends!
