job interview

okayhhhhh. this entry nak habak mai sikit pasal Public Personnel Adminstartion punya presentation. it was our last, last, last job this sem. sebab? sebabnya, semua presentation and assignment settle sudahh. so, lepas ni tak payah nak gedik2 fikir pasal assignment lagi. now tinggal nak concentrate more on final exam je (macam concentrate lah. -.-'') . first and first kteorg buat tajuk Different of Interview. memang fun tajuk ni sebab dapat buat research sikit pasal interview. boleh tahu how to prepare a very good resume, the types of interview which interview yang macam mana yang kita akan go through, soalan yang macam mana yang dia akan tanya and macam mana nak buat diri kita tak akan mati dek soalan2 killer interview tu. -.-

a day before the presentation. memang satu malam yang sangat macam tak boleh tidur. nak prepare awal tapi, laptop tak sampai lagi sebab hantar format. bila dapat je, keyboard macam apa ntah. tekan benda lain, benda lain yang keluar! tekan huruf 'Y' nombor '4' yang keluar. apa doe? memang sumpah bengang. terus hantar cc. so, settlekan slide presentation tu pakai my roomy punya laptop. TAK SELESA. apa ntah. then, settle. sleep at 2am. awake at 4am. entah kenapa. terjaga. bergolek-golek atas katil pun still tak boleh tidur balik. sebab banyak fikir kot. kain kat dalam bilik air ada lagi 2baldi. costing test tak study lagi and ada presentation. sabtu nak balik kl pulak. haddoi! so, bangun2 terus basuh kain. pukul4 pagi basuh kain. hoho.

setibanya keesokan hari, baik, cocok pendrive. TAPI, TAPI, TAPI and tapi, dia kata, 'You must format this disk before use it' apa wehhh! virus kah? tak mungkin, tak mungkin. laptop semalam kena virus kot and maybe kena bukak file kat laptop tu je kot. okay, dengan pantas dan segera from kelas balik bilik and cocok kt laptop semalam. tapi, benda sama jugak. kena FORMAT! adoiiii. memang tak boleh diselamatkan. kat mana entah pendrive tu kena virus. macam seks rambang je! now dah pukul 1030, present pukul 230. memang laju2 lah aku siap kan balik benda2 tu. FRUST!

CERITA SEBALIK TABIR : masa tengah naik tangga menuju ke bilik presentation (masa tu ramai orang okay)
''you, kita ni dah pakai smart2 dah macam nak pergi kerja kan. entah macam mana lah nanti masa kita nak pergi interview betul2 kan?''
time ni, aku nampak carrina senyum je dengar bebelan dan anganan aku tu. dia nak jawab. tapi tak sempat nak jawab sebab,
aku jatuhhh kat tangga tu. sumpah malu. aku jatuh sambil menjerit, ''youuuuuuu, i maluuuuuuuuuu.''
sebab ramai yang tengok.
kesimpulannya, jangan nak berangan sangat lah :pp

okay ladies and gentlemen, as we presented. ada macam2 jenis interview and method nya antaranya ialah STRESS INTERVIEW where the employer sengaja je soal macam2 soalan yang pelik2 yang sengaja nak give stress kat applicant tu. kadang2 dorang saja je nak test tahap IQ and communication skills applicants tu. contohnya,

carrina : ''ouh, look at you. you are short! how can you work and attract client based on your appearance?''
vianna : ''yeah, i know i am short. but i have a good communication skills where i can attract the client and i have full of confidence to speak in front of the people who is bigger plus i can use high-heels.

(astaghfirullah, dialog macam ni dia bagi aku? kasi gaduh lah you. -.-'')  


1. Know the purpose of your resume
Some people write a resume as if the purpose of the document was to land a job. As a result they end up with a really long and boring piece that makes them look like desperate job hunters. The objective of your resume is to land an interview, and the interview will land you the job (hopefully!).
2. Back up your qualities and strengths
Instead of creating a long (and boring) list with all your qualities (e.g., disciplined, creative, problem solver) try to connect them with real life and work experiences. In other words, you need to back these qualities and strengths up, else it will appear that you are just trying to inflate things.
3. Make sure to use the right keywords
4. Use effective titles
Bad title: Accounting
Good title: Management of A/R and A/P and Recordkeeping
5. Proofread it twice
6. Use bullet points
7. Where are you going?
Including professional goals can help you by giving employers an idea of where you are going, and how you want to arrive there. You don’t need to have a special section devoted to your professional objectives, but overall the resume must communicate it. The question of whether or not to highlight your career objectives on the resume is a polemic one among HR managers, so go with your feeling. If you decide to list them, make sure they are not generic.
8. Put the most important information first
9. Attention to the typography
First of all make sure that your fonts are big enough. The smaller you should go is 11 points, but 12 is probably safer. Do not use capital letters all over the place, remember that your goal is to communicate a message as fast and as clearly as possible. Arial and Times are good choices.
10. Do not include “no kidding” information
11. Explain the benefits of your skills
12. Avoid negativity
13. Achievements instead of responsibilities
14. No pictures
15. Use numbers
This tip is a complement to the 13th one. If you are going to describe your past professional achievements, it would be a good idea to make them as solid as possible. Numbers are your friends here. Don’t merely mention that you increased the annual revenues of your division, say that you increased them by $100,000, by 78%, and so on.
16. One resume for each employer
17. Identify the problems of the employer
A good starting point to tailor your resume for a specific employer is to identify what possible problems he might have at hand. Try to understand the market of the company you are applying for a job, and identify what kind of difficulties they might be going through. After that illustrate on your resume how you and your skills would help to solve those problems.
18. Avoid age discrimination
It is illegal to discriminate people because of their age, but some employers do these considerations nonetheless. Why risk the trouble? Unless specifically requested, do not include your age on your resume.
19. You don’t need to list all your work experiences
20. Go with what you got
If you never had any real working experience, just include your summer jobs or volunteer work. If you don’t have a degree yet, mention the title and the estimated date for completion. As long as those points are relevant to the job in question, it does not matter if they are official or not.
21. Sell your fish
Remember that you are trying to sell yourself. As long as you don’t go over the edge, all the marketing efforts that you can put in your resume (in its content, design, delivery method and so on) will give you an advantage over the other candidates.
22. Don’t include irrelevant information
Irrelevant information such as political affiliation, religion and sexual preference will not help you.
23. Use Mr. and Ms. if appropriate
24. No lies, please
Even small lies should be avoided.
25. Keep the salary in mind
The image you will create with your resume must match the salary and responsibility level that you are aiming for.
26. Analyze job ads
You will find plenty of useful information on job ads. Analyze no only the ad that you will be applying for, but also those from companies on the same segment or offering related positions. You should be able to identify what profile they are looking for and how the information should be presented.
27. Get someone else to review your resume
28. One or two pages
29. Use action verbs
Examples include managed, coached, enforced and planned. Here you can find a complete list of action verbs divided by skill category.
30. Use a good printer
31. No hobbies
Unless you are 100% sure that some of your hobbies will support you candidacy, avoid mentioning them. I know you are proud of your swimming team, but share it with your friends and not with potential employers.
32. Update your resume regularly
33. Mention who you worked with
34. No scattered information
35. Make the design flow with white space
36. Lists all your positions
37. No jargon or slang
38. Careful with sample resume templates
There are many websites that offer free resume templates. While they can help you to get an idea of what you are looking for, do not just copy and paste one of the most used ones. You certainly don’t want to look just like any other candidate, do you?
39. Create an email proof formatting
40. Remove your older work experiences
If you have been working for 20 years or more, there is no need to have 2 pages of your resume listing all your work experiences.
41. No fancy design details
42. No pronouns
You resume should not contain the pronouns “I” or “me.” 
43. Don’t forget the basics
The first thing on your resume should be your name. It should be bold and with a larger font than the rest of the text. Make sure that your contact details are clearly listed. Secondly, both the name and contact details should be included on all the pages of the resume (if you have more than one).
44. Consider getting professional help

So, all in all. ni je lah kot yang perlu diceritakan. nothing else. it was okay. i mean the presentation. so, semoga sedikit sebanyak post entry ni dapat menjadi guidance bila interview nanti. :)

UiTM Intersession Semester

a month flies. cepat sangat masa berlalu. aku ambil intersesi. apa itu intersesi? intersesi adalah short sem yang dilakukan semasa cuti sem di mana pelajar-pelajar yang lain tengah syok bercuti. cuti sem kali ni adalah 2 bulan. so kami-kami yang memilih untuk mengambil intersesi ni terpaksa lah korbankan cuti. Intersesi bagi pihak aku adalah bring forward the coming subject of next sem to this semester. maknanya, next sem, it should be 6 subjects tapi 1 subject had been taken to this interssesion and next sem akan ada 5 subjek je. yeay! macam biasa, bisnes diutamakan. it cost amount of cash to settle the fees untuk subjek and kolej. total up, RM300.00. tak berbaloi kan? yuran untuk satu sem je pun costs RM400+ in UiTM, tapi untuk intersesi yang sebulan dan satu subjek sahaja, 300.aiyakk! takpela. nak belajar. 
life is good in Lendu. kampus sumpah kosong! aku ambil kesempatan untuk jogging sendiri setiap hari. dapat tengok sendiri sunset dari atas bukit, dalam kampus. jalan sorang-sor…

Ujibakat Pengacaraan dan Wartawan Penyiaran

Jam 10.30 malam. Aku terima mesej bbm daripada seorang teman yang mengatakan ada audition pencarian bakat baru untuk pengacara dan wartawan penyiaran RTM. Tak kisah lah stesyen TV mana pun. Aku memang minat bidang ni sejak kecil! Malangnya sudah terlalu lewat. Audition adalah esok jam 2 petang. Tapi, bila difikir-fikirkan balik, ini sebenarnya peluang. Dapat, tak dapat belakang cerita. Yang penting cuba!
Pujuk punya pujuk. Alhamdulillah ayah akhirnya setuju juga nak bawa aku untuk audition esok. Ayah pun tahu ini memang minat aku. Ayah kata, tak payah fikir kalau dapat or tak dapat, yang penting cari pengalaman untuk bertatih pergi lagi jauh. 
Semalaman lah aku tak tidur. Menyediakan segala macam resume, sijil dan persediaan untuk audition.
Ke hulu ke hilir aku mencari bantuan. Al maklumlah takde basic knowledge in Masscomm studies. Mujurlah ada kawan-kawan yg banyak bantu and beri support. Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuu very much! and not forgotten, special thanks to Hanif…

cerita mula-mula aku berjilbab

aku tak tahu kenapa, aku excited sangat nk buat topik harini. bukan menunjuk. tapi, satu perasaan yang.... entah. susah nak describe. sebab mungkin, aku berharap sangat, lepas aku buat post ni, aku dapat tengok wajah2 ayu yang nampak beza nya antara orang yang baru nak pakai tudung, lain. ada serinya. serious (: tak sabar nk tengok. first of all, just nak share my experience without any other songsang intention. okay, regarding on the above title, true3, alhamdulillah, dah genap 366 hari, satu tahun, satu hari aku tutup kepala, pakai tudung, pakai baju lebih songsang dan tinggalkan fesyen lama. baru setahun aku melengkapkan salah satu perkara yang sangat disarankan islam. pakai tudung. ada apa dengan pakai tudung? dulu, aku pandang slack kat orang2 yang pakai tudung ni, comot je, macam makcik, kuno, and buat apa nak pakai muda2, cool lah. dah tua baru lah pakai. apelaa. itu aku yang dulu. setahun yang dulu. sampaikan masa kat sekolah bila ustazah bicarakan tentang aurat, aku bergaduh…
