Bercakap tentang kerja, I sekarang sangat selesa dengan apa yang I buat dekat 'the company'. At the moment, senior engineers hanya bagi kerja-kerja kecil kepada kami yang baru nak cari pengalaman. So, kalau dah namanya kerja-kerja kecil, mestilah dapat balik pukul 5.30 sharp (dengan syarat haruslah masuk 8.30 sharp!) :p.
Yang paling I suka is the work scope. The company is concentrating on the transportation industry, or rail industry to be exact. It's an international project based company listed on the main bursa even though they just started 7 years ago. The company made its way to the top competing against a few other established rail companies from Canada, China and Japan that have made their ways in the industry eons ago. We are in our first ever biggest project building a monorail for Mumbai, India at the same time bidding for other projects in Manaus, Tiradentes and San Paolo in Brazil and other potential developing cities. Lagi satu project besar adalah 'KL Monorail expension' whereby the current 2-car train will be replaced by 4-car train (4-gerabak keretapi). Selalunya rasa bangga bila tahu ada je project-project baru dalam dan luar Malaysia..You know, when you are part of it, you'll tend to get emotionally involved..:)
Walaupun baru 2 bulan kerja, tapi macam dah rasa 2 tahun. Seriously. Hubungan baik dengan senior engineers, Head of Departments and other work colleagues yang membuat kan I rasa suka dengan kerja sekarang. They are very helpful, tak kedekut ilmu and yang penting semangat yang diorang tunjukkan untuk majukan 'the company'. Tak ada mereka, tak adalah monorail buatan Malaysia di hantar ke negara-negara sedang membangun.
Lagi satu perkara yang buat I suka adalah tak ada sikit pun perasaan diketepikan jika bekerja dikalangan lelaki. Bayangkan out of 13 engineers in the 'project GAME' - this is what they call us - ada I ada another lady as representatives from the ladies team. Itupun at first I heard that I'm the only lady who've been offered the job. Not until one guy rejected the job offer and they offered it to someone else..I memang bangga sikit tang ni..
Actually, there are more upsides than downsides of this work. Macam tak ada flaws. Or maybe I ni selalu fikir benda-benda yang baik je.. But truth to be told, how can I not love the job after I received this for my first assessment: (surat cinta dari boss)
(First assessment feedback)
Thank you very much for your diligent work while you were with system assurance team; it was a pleasure to work with you. I think that the assessment grades given to the other candidates were more generous than I would have awarded; of all the candidates at the presentations, I thought that you and one other candidate stood out as significantly better than the rest. Perhaps I was too harsh in my gradings…
Thank you again for your good work,
Head - System Assurance"
Telan air luir dan tak putus-putus bersyukur :) Now, that's a good sign, no?
I semakin beremosi bila recently I received a call-back from company B (they are from Oil and Gas industry) wanting to meet me and have a short chit-chat session with them. I've attended the interview last April back when I was still in UK and the chit-chat session was held yesterday. It turned out well, but the result will only come out by next week. If I get the job, then Alhamdulillah (praise to Allah), and if it's the other way round, I don't think I have a problem with that. Yelah, kecintaan hati kat tempat kerja sekarang pun dah membuak-buak.. :)
But the thing is, am I willing to hop into another industry if I do get the job? How about the workplace then? Can I cope well if I'll be located somewhere far from KL? Say Kerteh? Will I regret the decision later?
But then, I once reminded by my chancellor during my graduation back in July 2010. She said something like this 'you must keep on learning in order to catch up with the world'. I'm assured by her words that there are possibilities and chances to go far in the engineering world. Maybe I terlalu emosi tanpa ambil kira pemikiran yang waras. I'm sure that company B could offer better future for me and my family. I believe that life is no fun without challenges. Company B might be my stepping stone..Should I go with the flow or should I stick with my current job?
