Oh Result...

Okay. So I'm freaking out because the exam results are coming out any time soon. Rumors were spreading fast since Monday. Results are expected to be out by 9th. or maybe 10th. But. News just came out today. Its on friggin' 11th baby! Which is like, tomorrow. Noon. Aww please please pray for me!

Btw. I've often been asked. "Da keje belom?". Alaa malas nye nak ulang2 explain..

No. I haven't started working. Tho I graduated a month ago. Nor did I get any other offers. I didn't go and apply to any other companies. I'm goyang kaki-ing at home. Well, not really goyang kaki also la, bibik-ing at times.

This is due to the reason I'M BONDED. with 'darling' PETRONAS. Many companies aren't in favor when they hear you're stil bonded with especially-PETRONAS. They had these bad experience where when they have spent the time & money for recruitment & training, the new lad simply walks away - duty calls. Yea, to some of those who don't know these policy of PETRONAS scholar holders, you're bonded throughout your studying years, plus, till you get your final exam results, being interviewed, and then only, finally released (if you didn't make it). Many outsiders think "ow hey u're a PET scholar~ confirm la can kerja with PET later. easy life la you!". Hell wrong. The percentage of scholar that are actually taken into PETRONAS after obtaining the degree is actually very small. I can easily say, probably, less than 10%? Especially with the economy crisis nowadays & PET being very patriotic & protective for its employees, they're not retrenching its workers. So instead, recruitment slows down. Oh I'd be happy as a kucing-dapat-ikan if I got into PETRONAS (>.<)

I went for the PETRONAS's Structured Interview in Feb 09. I called the Group Talent Sourcing person, Ms Nadia. She said they can only tell the results after the final exam results are out. oh duh. Anyways. Some of my friends had been called by PETRONAS. Sincere ( & envious!) congratulations to you all :D Malini will be starting of with work in July, while Charles in August. Others who has been called up, good luck for confirmation! & some more others who haven't been interviewed yet, chill eyh, your time will come :)

Oh and by the way. Another hot gossip being discussed around. About PETRONAS scholars/employees not allowed to marry one another. Mentioned in, some claimed, a new policy issued by PETRONAS. Check out the pic below! (click on to enlarge)Reread the 1st paragraph. LOL. Now. Many were questioning. Whats the logic behind this? Mengapa halang percintaan orang! LOL. Now the clause 'Jodoh di tangan Tuhan' has been sarcastically rephrased to 'Jodoh di tangan Majikan'.

Anyways. My personal view on this. Is that, PETRONAS, being a multinational company, is stil yet the nation's company. A true Malaysians proud-of. And being very keen on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and philantrophy, probably its their way of keeping the nation's income at a safe level. I don't really know how to explain whats on my mind. But. If they're spreading wealth, they'd like it to be well spread. All have equal (and more) opportunity. Say. A husband & wife both working in PETRONAS. They can easily be classified as rich. Now. With this policy, one family is limited to only-one, is an employee of PETRONAS. More families can have a PETRONAS employee in the family. Wealth well spread. Makes sense? Anyways. Its just a piece of my mind :)

And I am totally unsupportive of the plan to revert English teaching for Maths & Science in schools back to BM! >:(

petronas nk bg rase sume org kot keje petronas...xdela blk2 family die...but another reason is to prevent internal fraud...the banking institution also like dat but not as tight as petronas la...they just dun allow husband n wife to work in same branch...

Tu la, every semester they take 2000 scholars, takkan setiap 6 bulan they dapat recruit 2000 orang?

I think you are correct about the new policy. Agreed. Then I also told by John its a way of mengurangkan employees in the nicest way. At least PETRONAS can still support the family.

Eniwei, kongratz rezat kamu bah!
