Interview

I was in KL last Thursday to attend an interview with yet another big name in our plantation industry; The Tradewinds. My boss was not eager to let me go for the interview but he quickly changed his mind after I handed him my resignation letter. “You can go for the interview Hidney, but I’m not buying this letter. I’m keeping it and hopefully you will change your mind.”

Hmmm… A.N.Y.W.A.Y.S.

I’ve been attending several job interviews during the past 6 years of my career life. But as far as I can remember, my first would be the most interesting one. I was 21 and wearing a blue grey number for the post of Management Trainee with my previous company; Golden Hope Plantation. I was told to look up for ‘soalan temuduga bocor’ in the internet so that I can perform well in the interview. And so I did. God bless Google!

After a few minutes in the interview, one of the panels asked me, “You came alone from your hometown?”

“No sir. I came with my dad.” said I.

“I see. Could you please call him in? I wish to have a word or two with him.”

My dad was caught off guard you see. And to my surprise, he came in with a name tag on his shirt. I know my dad well… he was nervous and I like to see him when he's nervous hehehe.

I waited anxiously in a different room, killing my time by filing a piece of paper with my details.

“They are very nice you know,” said my dad when he finally emerged from the interview room a few minutes later. “You better do your best. I've played with their balls a bit in there. I think you’ll get the job.”

A few days later, a thick envelope came and I was officially a Golden Hopeans. Thrilled. My dad rocks!!!

I’MNOSUPERMAN: I know I did well last Thursday even without my dad’s help. I hope I’ll secure the job. Adik dah penat la dengan keje sekarang ni kakak!
