Oh, I am not quite sleeping.
It has been seven months since I joined the workforce, and I still scour the recruitment pages of the newspaper, and browse through the websites of job recruitment agencies.
Not for any particular reason, really. In fact, this is fast becoming… a hobby (!!) of sorts.
Or perhaps I just need constant (re)assurance that there still are plenty of job vacancies out there. All awaiting potential candidates that will either help spur the company to greater heights, or, er, take off again in six months’ time in search of better career prospects.
It does not look all that bad on the homefront, despite all that talk of unemployed graduates. There are quite a number of vacancies, and IT companies in particular are the most active in their recruitment programmes, seemingly churning out advertisements on a weekly basis.
Besides, it does not hurt to see how well the job market is doing, and how the pay differs from industry to industry.
(RM8,000 – 12,000 + COMPANY CAR)
Yes, in uppercase; I felt like I was being screamed at to take up the job. For some strange reason, a Perodua Kancil came to mind. Bloody hell.
Anyway, that is one of the perks that comes with the position of a general manager. Maybe it is just me, but I think people who are well qualified for that position should already be head-hunted these days; there is not any need for anyone to log on and key in a search for ‘manager’ at all.
You know you are good enough, when you do not need to go looking high and low for a job offer. Instead, they come looking for you.
Then there is this one other clause that I see in another job advertisement:
Fresh graduates need not apply.
Oh, and I have to ask: do anyone of you actually read or subscribe to my entries through the feeds (RSS and Atom)?
