Labuan, Zukry is coming!



As mentioned in my previous entry, Zukry went to KLCC today to pick up his offer letter and then, to a clinic (somewhere in Lebuh Ampang) for his medical check-up. My first SMS to him today: “Apa position? Dekat mana?” He was still on his way up to I-don’t-know-which floor.

Anyway, to our surprise he’s going to Labuan... I mean, we are damn sure he’s going to get that PRSB gig Researcher (Chemist)! You know the feeling when you’re so sure it’s right and it turns to-the-left, to-the-left! Wawawawa... He’s very grateful to get out of where he’s working now. Of course, the pros are there (we did our pro’s and con’s right after we got the news. Thanks MakTam, I recovered from the shock quite fast. Faster than him, that is) Well Zukry, Haniff is there to help you adapt with the small city :)

Why we were very frustrated when we knew it’s Labuan? 1. It is because HR from HQ refused to clarify what they’re offering to him on the phone when the letter is already in place! 2. HR from PRSB promised to call him back and didn’t (of course, whenever he called; there’s no update lalala...) He was furious and call her back; she said “Oh we know that. We can’t simply curi staff dari OPU lain. You still have the opportunity to join us maybe in 3years?” How could she...

My morning was all about “He’s moving to Labuan”... So now, all plans are to be directed into Labuan-Miri.



* BTW, i got to know that the basic is Rm30 higher than what I got in Dec ‘06. Eheheh... :P

teeny,

i actually expected this. the reason why zukry was interviewed / called up to petronas was because of the resume that i submitted to pml hr. it was pml who called for the interview hence my head of dept being one of the interviewer. and my hr friend even told me that we were the one who called for the interview. thus, its very unlikely that zukry is going to other opu unless pml rejected him.

i know this because interviewing someone from outisde (other company, not fresh grad) is different from interviewing a fresh grad.

OK, that does not make me feel any better but thank you very much for the info.

I heard you last time when you called and we were hoping that we could change that fact.

He deserves what best for himself. If it's in Labuan, (thanks to you) - I can't say much but Alhamdulillah... :)

Oh, BTW - nobody said anything about the interview is for PML. They should you know. HR is going nowhere better with this tak-nak-gitau thing.

well tq 2 hanif (pasni bnyk lg kne mintak tlg). anyway, that calvin n hobbes so nice. credit 2u.ya, @1st it was quite a shock, if i knew it from the beginning it'l not be like this i guess. but the fact PRSB do the booking thing really flattered me. it looks so real. heh. ok la, whatever it is, jangan pandang blakang. rezeki ada di mana² n its really up to us to grab or not the opportunity
