I went for an interview yesterday at the Multimedia University (MMU) in Cyberjaya. It was for the assistant manager post at the research & development division (R&D).
In order to make this story interesting, let me begin the story 2 days before the actual interview. Here we go… It all began when I was doing my “thing” at the office when suddenly a colleague of mine drop by the office and said that I should try applying for a job vacancy at MMU. Since I had nothing better to do (except for finishing my transcription…sorry boss…still on it) I just sent my resume via email. Bare in mind that I sent my resume for “suka-suka” (fun) I didn’t have any serious intention of going for the interview at that time.
The next day I received a call from a representative from MMU asking me if I was willing to attend the interview session for the assistant manager post tomorrow. Since I had nothing better to do (hehe) I said yes.
On the interview day itself I asked a friend of mine who is already working there to accompany me for morale support. But since he had other work to do he accompanied me for a brief period and gave me the “secret weapon” for the interview. You’ll never guess what it is......he gave me an orange coloured tie. Yes folks the competitive edge for an interview at MMU is the official TM orange tie. I’m not kidding…that tie really is a plus.
Although I arrived early, I still became the last person to walk in for the interview because the lists of candidates were according to alphabetical order. I waited 3 hours. YES 3 HOURS. From 3 pm to 6pm. All I could think of at that moment was (Zzzzzz).
Finally it was my turn to shine. I must admit that I was a little overwhelmed when I walked into the meeting room. There was not 1, not 2 but 5 interviewers. Yes 5… To make a long story short…the interview went well and the result…..I’ll be posting that soon….
