MACH Intern 2013

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

i was told by my neighbor who is also a senior of mine...
*he studied in UM but he took almost the same course like me*
we used to chat a lot outside the house with just a fence away...
and he used to tell me lots and lots of his experiences in interviews and works...
and i usually will pay extra attention on what he said...
because everything he told me does related to me...
*by the way his name is Melvin Koh Cheng Fei*

so one day we came across the topic of searching for a job for internship...
because i am looking for one now...
he recommended me to give it a try on the internship program from Microsoft...
*which is actually one of the company i aimed to get in for intern also*
then another one day he private messaged me again...
and from there i got to know that Microsoft is offering internship program...
exactly like the one he told me...

i did not immediately register for it...
because there are actually several factors to be considered...
and the main obstacle would be transportation of course...
so i went and asked around to see if anyone is interested to go for this...
and to my surprise none of them are interested..-_-
*probably because this is more to sales and marketing*
and only ChokHong and ZhangBin planned to go...
another deep deep consideration...
 because i know baby is not going to be happy if i were to go with two guys...
but thank god baby understand that i really want to give this a try...
so he allowed me to go...

i registered and got a reply from Microsoft...
saying that we will need to prepare a resume...
and attend another assessment session on the next day (26th Feb)...
if we are successfully chosen from the first assessment...
so here comes the other problem that is accommodation...
where to stay if i need to attend the other session?
*definitely a 'NO' to stay with them both right*
i contacted Juee and she taught me how i can get back to PoPo's house...
*i wished to go baby's place but it is just too far from KLCC*
and baby also agreed that i should go back PoPo's house...
*but actually staying over in KL is definitely not my choice*

so on the 25th February which was yesterday...
the three of us went all the way from uni to KLCC...
and ChokHong was the driver of the day...
we departed at around 8.30am and reached KL around 11am...
the reason why we came so early was because...
 we wanted to spend our book vouchers here in KL...
we actually did walked all the way from KLCC to Pavillion...
 just to peep on the Times Bookstore...
but we did not buy anything there because the books are just too little to choose from...
we went back to KLCC again after lunch...
and spent the afternoon in Kinokuniya Bookstore...
the two guys are just too obsess with programming...
 that they went and searched for programming books..-_-
i do not find any of those book interest me...
so i went and looked for novels instead...
too many novels that i totally got no idea which to choose...
and guess what i bought in the end??
seven novels of Vampire Diaries and only one love novel..:p
a total of RM271.20...
and got a RM20 instant rebate...
so only additional of RM1.20 to bring them home..:)
*great satisfaction*

by 5pm we were all at Microsoft office already...
i actually got a shocked that their office is not an office at all...
it looks more like a cafe with comfy sofas and chairs...
and believe it or not...
the staffs there do not actually own a working table..:o
they told us that they are allowed to just sit anywhere they feel is comfortable...
and start their work there...
and by the end of the day all they need to do is to pack everything back home...
it is like sitting in Starbucks..-_-

anyway..we were brought into an auditorium...
and we were given a brief introduction from the staffs there...
which only took about an hour plus...
our first assessment was based on the resumes we sent in..><
i had a bad feeling for it already because i just simply create my resume...
we drove all the way back to uni after dinner...
because we feel that it is no point to stay for a night there to wait for results...
it would be a waste of time if we cannot make it for the second assessment...
so we were all back in uni again around 11.30pm...
*thank god still in time to get back to hostel..else i guess i need to go home and sleep*

and finally received reply from Microsoft this morning...
so sad that i cannot make it for the second assessment...
only ChokHong was successfully chosen...
so he has to go back to KLCC again for the assessment...
*thank god again that we did not stay overnight in KL*

guess there is no more back-up internship company for me so far...
need to re-search for one...
