Interview oh Interview

I went for an interview yesterday for database programmer position.The interview was at 10am, near to kerinchi lrt. and i managed to get there 5min b4 10am bcoz I get lost. huhuhu luckily i was ontime. The interview seesion started exacly on 10am where as i hv no time to 'retouch up' my make up. hehehe And there were 2 interviewers, 1malay woman (Prof Dr. **** -- around 40's) and 1 chinese guy (Lim ***** -- around late 20's).

At first there was nothing serious conversation...All the ques are about my skill...my ability...my future dream...bla..bla..bla.. ans i juz answer them seadanya. But, about 1/2 hour later, I was forced out of my confort zone. She asked me all about things that 'logically' I cannot answer. of corse not, coz im not an experience job seeker. Hello, im fresh graduated! Dun compare me with 3years experience worker. Huhuhu..

About 1hour I kept pretending OK..and keep pretending to smile when they started to compare uia with other university..And they condemed me about my fyp report which I followed exacty the format from Bro. Rizal.. Still remember what she said: "Mcm ni ke budak IT buat report? Main belasah je..."

Dalam masa 1 1/2 hour tu, aku rase mmg nk lari terus je..It was like an army interview! although i never join army..=) hehehe but the thing is, it gives me a really gud experience..(from positive side la..think positive...think positive...)..

After dis, I must be ready for any ques..For any 'condeming' ques....From there I can learn how to handle the situation, if it happens again..Neway, wish me lak for my next interview...Yg tersurat..Im trying to find the best post for me..Yg tersiratnye...im trying to find the best salary.hehehe..Tp keje kt Satyam pon ok la...But b4 23July, I'll try to find one that can exacly suit me...Fuhh...Penat kene 'belasah'...aku terus g tgk wayang Fantastic4..hehehe

p/s: I hate when ppl compare me wit anything!!! It was like a nightmare for me! Juz ignore me when u dont like me. Juz tell me if u dun like me.

Hi there, I hope you have found the job that you were looking for already. As for your FYP report, its ok if they want to compare it with other universities. You can simply come back saying that thats what most employers see wrong in a report. And that none of them really read the report. What you are giving them is gold, not paper weight. Defend it like always. Justify that the objective was not trying to come up with a write-up to be a paper weight. Documentation reports are covered in SQA and System analysis and Design classes. You job in FYP is results, and they should expect the same if they were to hire you. Setakat bagi report tebal jer buat aper, kalau kerja apa pun tak buat right. Explain that you are CS oriented, and coding is what you do most, not writing reports. And the results are in that tiny piece of paper. Be confident as always, belief in yourself and remember, its all about selling yourself, just like the demo day. Just that in the interview, the product is yourself. Good luck now....
