ACCA Carrer Fair - Petronas

i never expecting anything today.
my target is simple, just find out all the vacancy and throw in my resume to all the companies.

so i go photostates 10 copies of my resume and put into 10 envelops.

so i start my journey to ACCA career fair at Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel.

i was alone. feeling lonely. it's ok. i can do whatever i want to do.

reached there, i register myself, got 1 big red ACCA bag. so i walks into the hall.

first, it's was Shell shared services. lucky that time the person in charge is just finished with other person, i got the chances to find out more about the vacancy in the company. it's seem not easy to get an account executive post in that company. im only qualify as account associate, a level below account executives.

i was thinking, shd i be happy with my current post? Account Executives. all this while, i thought im can be Assistant Accountant. but it's seem not applicable in the multi-national companies.

so i filled in the form and submit my resume together with the form.

Next, i need to find another company, and do the same thing i do with the Shell. Then come Petronas. the person is just went off, and i immediately sit down and waiting the person in charge. so i asked her, and she start to explain to me. just a simple explaination.

so i submit my resume to her, and she examinate my resume. i was not aware there are some pre-liminary interview is on-going. just saw her, tooks the green small paper, writes down my names and ask me to go to 4th floor, and there will be people guide me for the interview.

wow... im feel so excited. can have interview on the spot. Lucky im wearing formal with tie. without delay i rushing to the 4th floor. on my way out, i saw two of my ex-colleague who is currently with GT and BO.

when i was reached there, there are many people siting there waiting turn for interview. so i submit my resume and waits. that time was 12.50pm. after not long that, there are Petronas Career talks. We all asked to go in to listen, as it might helping us more understanding about Petronas. i thinks im lucky have attended this Career talks, it is what i wanted to do, to be all this while.

Petronas can helps me realised my dreams.
Petronas is a very good training ground for me.
Petronas is a testing ground for me whether im able to achieve my dream or not.

The training and developments scheme presented by the Finance Skill manager is execellance.

this added more interest for me to go into Petronas.

my pre-liminary interview only can be continue after lunch 2.30pm. when the career talks was finished its 1.45pm. wanted to go lunch, but the nearest food stall available is at wisma genting or wisma cosway. im too lazy to walks out and again, im alone. no appetie to have lunch alone.

so im walking around, drinks more water.

i back to the waiting area around 2.15pm. waiting until 2.45pm, and it's my turn.
since it's pre-liminary interview, no hard question is being posted. just those normal questions.

the interviewer placed an importance of "mobility". lucky im very mobile. she even asked me, are you mind being re-allocated to oversea or dosmetic? im totally have no problems with it.

i got the feeling, im not going to stay in KL for a long time soon.

im going to leave KL.
im going to leave my confort zone.
im going to leave my loved myvi behind.
if domestic, im still have chances to bring it alone with me.
if oversea, im have to leave it to my mother in Kedah or sell off.

im going to miss KL Low Yat forumer friends.
im going to miss Low Yat forum gathering.
im going to miss MyviClub member.
im going to miss MyviClub TT.

i have the confidence, im going to get call for structured interview.
im going to pass the structured interview.
im going to join Petronas.
im going to grow with Petronas.
