Last two weeks were very bz for me. I was in Alor Setar and Penang. Kena jadi panel interview. Post - Pembantu Tadbir (Perkeranian/Operasi)....hehehhe...macam-macam orang aku jumpa...
but there was this one girl from penang who i cannot forget la.
i was flipping thru her documents. i noticed dat she has a diploma form a local politeknik. her CGPA - 3.74 !! power tuuu.... so i asked her:
me : cik xx, saya tengok di sini result awak bagus, 3.74... kenapa tidak sambung pelajaran (gila formal ah bahasa aku)
girl : saya sebnarnya....saya....hisk...
suddenly she cried. really crying i tell you. fortunately for me, this was not my first time interviewing people and it was the first time somebody cried while being interviewed.
so i kept my poker face. calming her down a little. even gave her tissue.
when she ok. she told us the story la. came from a poor family. she was offered a place in U but had to decline coz have no money. she said, her other siblings oso like dat. got good result but cannot further study coz have no money.
this is actually the first time i felt kesian to a candidate. b4 this, ko nak nangis ke, nak merayu ke, jerit ke, i dont care....i wont be influenced la. but this girl i really kesian la. lagipon dia punya performance during interview pon ok.
so i rekomen my chairman to give her the job la, and he agreed. hopefully we did the rite thing la. and hopefully she would be able to change her fate bcoz dia dah janji nak buat PJJ kalo dapat kerja ni. hopefully la....
