Career Advancement. Hopefully.

Anyone fancy to work with Petronas? I am!

I've received a phone call from one of the Petronas personnel, Mr Marzuki yesterday. He asked for a meet-chit-chatting session to discuss about a job offer. I did apply last month online under general application. No expectation, as I believe they must be receiving a lot of application online. I just hope they can fill me in any position available based on resume that I've submitted.

And I never expect it will be this soon.

On the phone, Mr Marzuki told me briefly about the job offered. Something got to do with managing personnels and HR-practicing for Research & Technology Department (R&T). HR? Err, seriously? I'm in IT/Engineering line. What am I supposed to do in HR? But R&T sounds interesting. Haha. I did asked whether he called the right person or not. He did laughed-out-loud (which make me more uncomfortable) and told me not to worry anything as he will discuss further when we meet. So I've decided to meet him!

Clueless. Excited. All mixed up. That's how I feel right now. Please pray for me that everything will goes well. Even at this point of time while writing this post, I can feel the butterfly in my stomach (I can't recall swallow any. Huhu). :) So nervous (Err, should I be nervous about this?). The truth is, I'm not ready to change job and start-over. But, no harm trying, right?

I'll be at Aseana Cafe, KLCC for the chit-chat with Mr Marzuki today after work. Hope for the best. :)

amirul said...

Salam Cahaya,
Good Luck To You! Just Following U're Nawaitu... If u feel it's ok for U... then just go on... Tapi perlu buat keputusan yg bijak... ekoran ekoran ekonomi yg buruk diluar sana... Anyway... hope all the best to you...

CAHAYA said...

HEMY,

Itulah, but my fren from Petronas told that itu mmg biasa. Memang selalu chit-chatting di luar dan bkn waktu pejabat.

Post besar eh? Alhamdulillah. Amin. :P Thanks HEMY.

Salam amirul,

Betul. Kena fikir masak2. Kena tgk jugak gaji dan location. Kalau dia letak nun jauh di sana. Tak sanggup wooo. :) Thanks.

Faisal Admar said...

I want to change job too but I can't afford to do so yet. Still got things to get done and I just hope that I can change unit at the current moment.

Anyway, good luck to you :)

CAHAYA said...

monkey.d.luffy,

Best tu memang la best. Tapi kat Bayan Lepas la pulak kan? Huhu.

----------------------------------------------------

Faisal Admar,

Is there any differences if you change unit? Salary? Job desc?

Thanks F.A. I have to do deep thinking when it comes to career decision. :)

if the offer is good, why not?hehe...macam berpakat plak sebab last 2 weeks aku pon isi online application tu tapi masih lum ada berita dan memang dijangka.nanti bagi tau kat marzuki tu aku pun nak chit chat gak ngan dia.atau dia sengaja nak dating kot.hehe

p/s: tak perlu risau pasal apa bidang yang bakal diceburi di tempat kerja baru.aku dulu background mechanical, keje skg ni lebih kepada civil plak.asalkan bos baru faham dan sudi menunjuk ajar sudah kira bagus.hehe

CAHAYA said...

SukaBebel,

Cahaya dah pegi jumpa semalam. Okaylah. Kerja okay kot. Walaupun bukan dalam bidangku. Masuk Petronas Dagangan plak. Hantar juga application yer? Tunggu je la. InsyaAllah ada. :)

p/s: Tak risau, cuma rasa penat lelah ber'degree' dan ber'master' dibuang begitu sahaja kalau tiba2 sambung bidang lain. Tapi takpe, I always see this as opportunity to learn. And hopefully one day bleh jadi CEO plak. Haha.

DrSam said...

With only a short 'interview' with you last week, I think with your nice personality and good interpersonal skills and vast experience, you are the best person for the job.

Pray for you success and Good luck!

CAHAYA said...

Haha. Thanks. Wow. I'm flattered. :) Everything went well that day. Plus, the job is actually 'over' location. It's in Penang. Huhu.

Thanks!

aRaBeLLa said...

Kak, terima tak tawaran tu??..hmm petronas tu ..grab it je lah kak...1 of employer of choice in Malaysia.

CAHAYA said...

Tu lah, location macam x kena je. Nanti bincang2 dulu ngan family. :)

Catz said...

Hi cahaya..
so u accept the job offer?..good luck..
mungkin dah sampai masa bertukar angin...mana tau berjumpa seseorang di penang...hiks...
btw...fikirlah dgn tenang...

CAHAYA said...

Haha Catz. Thanks.

Bertukar angin yer. Tgklah dulu. Masih dalam berfikir2. Lama lagi nak beri jawapan. Tapi dah kena start fikir pros and cons lah skang ni.

p/s: tgh cuba tenangkan diri.

Suka Bebel said...

jadi CEO?amin...jangan lupa kawan kawan plak.hehe

CAHAYA said...

Haha. InsyaAllah takkan lupa. Kalau lupa, kasi je lempang sebijik. hehe.
