Al-Saadi family photo

It's just the same old raya every year. 
4thraya without arwah Tokwan. Al-Fatihah.
Talking about TokWan, afew years before he passed away, he only wants to wear his Shell red jacket with old shirt & kain pelikat for 1stday of raya. He doesn’t want to wear baju melayu even though we did buy one for him. Puas paksa weh! 

Freestyle! (everyone in the awkward pose)

Something different about this year is I'm driving! Accompanied by Catul of course since this year she went back to Sg Petani. It was 12hours long drive & I drove from KL to Taiping & Sungai Petani to Alor Setar. Between that, is Catul turn. 

With the cousins & beloved tok 💖

This time raya is almost completed. Why almost? Because missing MakTam as she’s on duty & Nizam as he hmmm well always missing in action. It's my 3rdyear giving duit raya to the kids  *crying in money* 😭

Puan Salimah 

An as usual, on the second day of raya, we are having makan-makan for family & friends. We (my cousins & I spared some time to follow PakTeh to his aunty house at Pendang, sawah padi weh! Biasalah, budak KL perak nampak sawah.

 Fefeling kejap pose ditiup angin kencang

Sibuk si debab ni!

4 days after that, its time to go home & I fetch Catul at Sungai Petani. 

We not ready yet!

That’s all about this year raya. Semoga Allah panjangkan umur kami sekeluarga untuk beraya bersama lagi tahun depan.

Okay that's me 😋

CSR Program at PAWS Animal Shelter on 31 March 2018

CSR Program at PAWS Animal Shelter on 31 March 2018

Frankly speaking, we haven’t done this before. Not since day 1 on 2011. Don’t know what happened to my MD but out of the blue, he wants to do CSR for the very first time ever after 7 years of existing (I mean, the company). Maybe he want to do good deeds (we get it) but the problem is he want to do this every month. I repeat, every month & the person in-charge is ME ! Menyesal aku volunteer to organize cause I thought this should be fun & something that I look forward too but not anymore. Not to mentioned that the budget for every CSR is RM500 *roll eyes* *hand on the shoulder* 

So we went to PAWS Malaysia at PJ. Why did I choose PAWS ? First, boss reject most of my proposal & only approved PAWS & Zoo Negara but too bad, Zoo Negara is full until Raya. & of course it because I love cats sooooooo much!

But first, group photo!

There was about 200 gods & 200 cats with 4 rabbits. As usual for the dogs, their tails are always like an electric shock when they see someone walk in.  As for the cats, relaxxxxx cause yeahh they don’t give a damn. That’s my animal spirit! So we clean the cat cages & feed them. While for the dog, Adrian walks them. 

Yeaahh, that's me petting & checking their teeth

Its me again with the dogs

So far, I really enjoyed this visit. Hope that I can drop by again to donate some foods & petting them.

Tips for fresh grads: Applying for a job

Tips for fresh grads: Applying for a job

Read post
Even though my experience is just merely 2 years as a recruiter, but I do learn a lot, A LOT in how to apply for a job in a correct/official/manners way.

So let me share with you what you need to do to apply for a job. Especially to fresh grads. I received a lot of ‘I don’t want to call him/her for the interview’ email. It doesn’t matter if your lecturer didn’t teach you how to apply for a job properly, the least thing you can do is GOOGLE. Its 2018 ! We are almost to the year where there is flying cars in the air. Please move your ass & start googling.

These tips are based on my experiences & observation.

For those that not graduate yet, I suggest you to build your connection by:

  1. Create a LinkedIn account. What is LinkedIn ? Basically its like FB, Twitter but this is for career, jobs & professional platform that related to only work. You can add as many connections as you want. Preferably HR person because other than JobStreet, we also post available vacancy here.
  2. Internship. Be good & do good with the staff & client from your internship company. Because we never know if the company like your performance & would like to offer you as their permanent staff. Grab every opportunity that you can sense.

As for those who already graduated, you can post in your LinkedIn about your availability & interest like this jobseeker.

This is a very good example.

You also can try to DM the HR & ask for any vacancies that suits your qualification.

If you did emailed the HR/company to apply for the available vacancy, here is what you can do to follow up:

1.     Email them to ask for a follow up/feedback
2.     You did the first step, but still no reply ? Then you gotta call the company & ask directly to the HR about the position.

Lets take a look on how your resume should look like.
Please take note that this is based on my experience & my client requirement which is from various industry (i.e. oil & gas, accountancy firm, bank, financial institution and etc)

  •     Your personal details
  •     Education (year, course, CGPA & university)
  •     Professional Certification (if any i.e. ACCA)
  •     Final year project (if any)
  •     Working experience (if any)
  •     Internship experience (duration, company name, job responsibilities)
  •      Computer skills & language proficiency
  •     Your availability to start work

Now we move to proper way to sent resume through email.

  1. Please please please don’t you ever dare to sent one email to multiple recipient. Jangan jadi pemalas sangat. Makan rajin, taip banyak sikit malas. I received this kind of email a lot. & sorry not sorry, straight away to trash.
  2. For subject, please put something like ‘Application for Mechanical Engineer’ and so on. This is the only this you should put in subject.
  3. The body. This is where you should make a paragraph about yourself starting with ‘Hi XXX, My name is XXX…..’ Do brief a little bit about yourself i.e. name, graduate from where & looking for what in your career.
  4. Attach your CV. Some company prefer words copy and some prefer PDF. Its up to you.

As for JobStreet, Its better if you have 2 version.

  1.     Your own resume
  2.      JobStreet resume

What I meant by JobStreet resume is from HR view. Not every vacancies we posted in JobStreet. Sometimes we just search with keywords. & if happen your profile match the keywords & requirement, the HR need to buy your CV which will cost the company and there is a possibility that they don’t buy it. So, I suggest you to put your contact details in job experience like this example.

Who knows by this, it will increase your chance to get call for an interview.

Sekian sedikit kata-kata dari saya.
Selamat maju jaya & all the best for you job hunting
