The Young Executives...

I have been pretty quiet from my FB and this house lately...I have been very busy. The workload and one of my colleagues have been sent out (I think) to another division. So, there are vacancies in the Legal Dept now. And since our Department is very prosperous in making babies and new additions to their respective families...well gawat gawat...kilang tu tak gawat, inshaallah...we have called in a few new candidates to fill up the posts and to cover those who will be on maternity leave, moi included, ha ha. Hence, the interview yesterday and the whole afternoon, today...and moi was one of the panel interviewer...

After today's session, I had a splitting headache and major disappointment...what has happened to our graduates..the Young lady yesterday I believe is capable to doing the job (after moi grilled habis habis on her knowledge and asked her to interpret certain clauses in a contract)BUT, she's very prejudiced..the reason she is interested to join another organisation is because she said that her current boss is very racist and is not very pleased if she performs her solat...halo we live in Malaysia...there is no racism here...and she also made a remark that she is not an ordinary malay...on both point she kantoi, big time, what more the hr personnel is an indian lady!

Today, we had four candidates, all four I can generalise to a point that the reason for them coming to the interview is to gain "better knowledge, better exposure"..all four when I asked whether they came prepared and did any research (at all about the organisation...their excuses was no time (tapi one guy, his hobby is main PS2??!!), this lady no time sebok kerja @ office (and her present job is wt this semi-government agency that I have done a contract with, that took one month to revert to my comments in my earlier assignment with them...halo!!), this lady who's a practising lawyer said she doesn't have internet access(??!! in this era, my 5 year old son pun knows how to google for his cartoon pages on the net!)and this other lady said she didn't have time.... I gave them a lecture that in our days, we had to call people in the industry or pay the organisation a visit and try and get hold of an annual report or write ups, just to get infomation and equip ourself for the interview....I have been to an interview with the Securities Comission and they made me write an essay on Insider Dealing!!

So, I left the office today feeling disappointed and sad of what is to become to the new generation...and I must add that they cant even speak proper English with a decent grammar..all I can say is that they had come for the interview in the hope that they will get better remuneration but....adoi, the knowledge, the attitude, the skill, even the dressing...they are all definitely not up to my mark, at least (in terms of dressing, I thought I tak bergaya when I go to office, but black is my universal colour, so cannot go wronglah-kan). So, am not looking forward for the next interview session, at least for now, I have to get over this episode first...
