Happy Fathers' Day!

By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.

Hi all! So you guys tried my test below yet? Those who haven't, just click on the link, in my previous blog entry. You might learn something. Well I've watched Pirates recently with Jasmine, after meeting up with long ago friend, Wei Zhien, who came down from Malaysia. I found Part 3 better than Part 2. But Part 1 will always be the best. I really enjoyed hanging out with Jasmine. Was fun and had loads to talk about. So when is the next time Jas? Hehe....
Anyways, for those who still don't know, I have just started a new job last week as a recruitment officer for a recruitment agency. So I basically help companies find workers. I have to conduct interviews, read resumes, refer people to companies, etc. It's something similar to working under Human Resource I guess. Initially, I thought it would be something exciting. Going out here and there to meet people and etc, but, it looks like I would be spending a lot of time in the office doing paperwork. Not my cup of tea, but then again, it has only been one week. I might be doing more exciting things in the next couple of weeks... Hopefully. My initial plan was to work for a minimum of two years, to gain the experience, and then hopefully, move on to something better. Don't know if I would be able to stick to this job for that long though. Like I said, it has only been one week, and I would have to play it by ear and see how thing go for the next few weeks.
It is also hard, as only me, and one indian are the only non chinese in the company. So communication is difficult. There are some china workers also. So, for them, colleaques are talking in Chinese often. Since I don't have a clue about recruitment, it makes communication that bit harder as well. I'm also the youngest in the company right now. So I feel that there's a generation gap thing going on, haha... Anyway, the paycheck is a motivation. Plus there's a commission if I can find someone suitable to sign under the company I'm helping. I'm under probation, so I don't get any benefits for 6 months, and I need to hit a certain sales target within that period, to get out of probation. Well, all I can say to myself is, 'Welcome to the workforce!'. Hopefully, I'll get used to it. Some have said that the first 3 months can be the hardest. So I'm taking that into consideration as well.
Well, I'd better head to bed and get ready for a brand new day of work. The weekends are now that much sweeter. Those working, surely understand where I'm coming from right? So good night folks! Sleep tight and wish me all the best!
