ENTERING A WORKPLACE IS LIKE ENTERING A JUNGLE.

There’s one girl in my workplace, I don’t know how other people think of her but I think she is a ‘meroyan’ girl. Seriously, I don’t know what her problem is but whenever it comes to me, she becomes a ‘meroyan’ girl.

Today, she showed the ‘meroyan-ness’ in front of one of my colleagues. It’s around 7.20 pm when people are busy to berbuka puasa. Obviously, there are not many customers in my workplace. So, I said to her “akak keluar sekejap ye”. I mean, get out from the cashiering area (I’m a cashier). I get out from the cashiering area because I want to help a customer to find a comic for her son (her son is very excited to find that comic, seriously). By the way, the title of that comic is Ultra Qalif. Come on, it’s near the time to berbuka puasa so that I want to make it faster for that customer to find the comic. But what she says?

“Haa keluarlah, keluar. Semua orang nak keluar. Ingat aku sorang je ke nak duduk kat sini?”

Of course she said that together with an annoying face expression… ish ish ishh

I just gave her a weird look. Deep in my heart, “today, this girl is too much”. But I comfort myself by saying, “never mind, just ignore her because she doesn’t know that you get out from the cashiering area to help a customer”.

Alright, done that part.

About one of my colleagues, he heard what that girl is saying to me. And then he asks, “Laa kenapa? Bukannya ramai customer pun”. I think he also doesn't understand why that girl says that.

True. What the person who has interviewed me nearly two months ago said is totally true. "Entering a working place is like entering a jungle", he said. There are wild and tame animals in it. So does a working place. There are variety characteristics of colleagues in our workplace. Some are nice to us, some pretending to be nice to us and some…..? (You can put whatever answer you want in the blank space). Umm, shall I considering that girl as a wild animal? LOL.

I believe this happens for a reason. Perhaps Allah sent this girl to test my patience. Who knows?


That's all for now, see ya in the next entry. Cheers!

SALARY VS WORKING EXPERIENCES.

AsSalam readers!

A few days ago, someone asked me about the basic salary for my current job. I told her and then she asked, “why the basic salary is so low?’’ She even recommended another job with high basic salary. I smiled while shook my head. I said, “No, I’d rather finish what I’ve started”.

Salary is important but working experience is priceless.

The point here is, I know salary is very important. But working experience is priceless. If you’re a fresh graduate who looking for a job, I highly recommend you to gain working experience first. Avoid from being too choosy in finding job. Grab whatever job opportunity that you get.

Basically, an employer opt for an employee with greater working experiences. So that, if you’re a person with many working experiences, chances for you to be hired for any relevant vacancy is high. If you’re a college or university student, working during semester break is a good starter in preparing your working experiences portfolio (resume).

You know what, there is a section for working experiences in a resume. Employer will definitely want to know about your working experiences so that it will be easier for them to match the job candidates to a job vacancy in their organization.

Start small will get low salary but will equip you with essential traits a leader should have.

If you’re a fresh graduate, you probably have a thought of being employed in a well-known organization, for a high level position and of course with high salary. How about this thought, “Prepare yourself for a high level position by starting from below and gradually climb up the ladder towards the high level position” Do you agreed with this thought?

I think, in whatever we do it is wise if we start from below instead of jump to the top. Same goes to the working matter. Yes, do select a well-known organization and start working from below. As you gradually climb up the ladder towards the high level position, you will get many working experiences and of course together with the salary increment. 2 in 1 package,  woww!

Besides, if started from below, you’ll get firsthand experience of the low level position. Later, if you are hired for a high level position, you know how to handle those working in low level position in a better way because you’ve been in their position. Started from below is undoubtedly will equip you with essential traits a leader should have. Been there makes you a good leader in the making!


I think that's all for now. See ya in the next entry, cheers!
