Work

Finally hired

When I studied economics and business law in my undergrads, there were two regulatory institutions that were repeatedly mentioned by my lecturers. I never thought of applying before because I didn’t think I’d make it through to either, considering the requirements. Some time after that I’d learned that if you want something, you can get it if you actually try. I applied to both last year during a career fair and received offers from both institutions after several rounds of assessments, approximately one per month.

I received a call last night and was asked to report to one of the organizations for duty today. Phew. Was so worried I’d be jobless after not being able to work for Malaysia Airports earlier this year. A very last minute notice, yes, but you gotta do what you gotta do. It’s sad to not be able to have fun with the FV girls, now. Prior to this, I even told them we’d have lunch together next week. But I guess it’s time for me to step into the real world.

Oh annual reports, we’ll be good friends from now on.
