Interviews

Today's mood :>
I'm looking for job, so I applied 3 jobs in JobStreet. 2 replied. And both interviewed on last Thursday. 1 is walk-in interview, another 1 is phone interview.

Interview #1
I reached there half an hour earlier than appointed time. So I filled up the application form and then waited for about 15 mins for the interviewer to come in office and interview me. While I was waiting, I looked around and found out that the company is kinda old school for me as a web design agency. There's no LCD screen to be seen, but 3 netbooks and 2 CRT (1 supposed to be the server and the other 1 was receptionist one). There's an aquarium with fishes inside and a punch card machine which I think is good, OT will be counted :D

The interviewer read through my resume and asked me why did I resign from the companies ONE BY ONE. And silly me told him the truth. I quit from Company A because my senior was leaving, there's nobody to guide me or even teach me new stuff plus the company has sucks management, always OT till late night. He 'replied' me with boss' voice "Office is a place for you to work, NOT A SCHOOL". And I thought "no wonder your company website still stay in 90's look and never update, cuz you scared of learning new stuff". I quit from Company B because I wanted to help out my bf's company which also a web design company. He again 'replied' me "now you did the biggest mistake in our line. what a company scared most is you get client from company and make them yours". This I can understand, but I never did that, God knows. I'm a trustworthy person k, but he's too afraid to trust his employee then I can't help lah.

So conclusion, he told me his company's 'rules' that 1)I have to work for 12 months once I'm employed and not allowed to resign to ensure I work more than 1 year 2)After you resign, you can't own business of same interest with the company for at least 12 months. If you can accept this, please wait for our feedback.

Interview #2
This interviewer called from Singapore, he sounds like 'guai lou' @_@ First I sked I can't understand but so far so good.. I can mostly understand his english. He asked me about the company I worked in previously ONE BY ONE, it's not about how I resign, but how I felt working in those companies. I even told him I can't pass the probation in the first company, that was because I was too fresh and lack of working experience.

After I told him everything about me, then he told me everything about the agency, from top to bottom, from head to toe. OMG ><" He said there's alot talented creative person in the company who can lead me to higher level and they interested in explore new media and apply on the clients' projects accordingly. That is exactly what I'm looking for.

BUT, there's a test awaits me. A flash banner and a flash microsite, to test my conceptualizing and design skills. If they like them, then I'll be 'invited' to do presentation to them to test my communication skills. @_@ I seriously feel stress though I like that. This kinda test will really show whether the interviewee is dragon or worm. I wish I could handle it le..hmm.

Well that's all ba. Wish me luck! ><"
