Jobstreet MCTF'14

Saturday, March 08, 2014

this was the main reason why Gor and me travelled all the way back KL...
the annual Jobstreet MCTF 2014...
which held on the 7th, 8th and 9th March 2014 at the Midvalley Megamall Convention Center...
chose to go on the Saturday which probably the best day of all...
we both took the 6.30pm bus from Kuantan on Friday...
it has been so long since i last travelled in the night bus...
and reached KL around 10.00pm...

and on the Saturday...
*which is today..-__-*
had to wake up superb early...
because somebody did not register for the express pass to enter this career fair...
the fear that we might need to queue for the registration...
*HE to be exact because i registered myself one month ahead*
which made me had to go early for the fair as well..-_-
we took public transport out because it was too early to wake the cousins up just to drop us...
thank god i had Teng who is the Midvalley master to tell us which bus to board...
well she is like that one person who knows how to walk and where to walk in Midvalley...
and she even knows damn well which bus stops at which entrance of the mall..o.0
i never fail to ask for clarification from her whenever i have to go there alone...
so this morning we took the U66 bus which will stop at the North Court entrance...
instead of U76 where we supposed to look for because it stops at South Court entrance...
because we only managed to see this bus coming...
and worried that we might need to wait for quite awhile before the right bus comes...
*well North Court and South Court make not much different also because Midvalley is not that big after all*

headed straight up to the Convention Center at Level 3 to meet up with ChooiFoong...
i thought we were early and would not need to queue for too long for the registration...
because i consider 10.00am is early on the weekend for KL people...
but HELL NO!!!
the crowd was so pack that the entrance also filled with human beings..o.0
*superb out of my expectation!!!*
i headed straight to the counter to claim my express pass...
i was fast but still need to wait for the couple to register themselves at the registration booth first...
thank god they provided several registration booths...
so the waiting was not that long which at first i thought it might takes up to an hour due to the crowds..:p
*hyperbola* 

another thing that was sort of out of my expectation...
i saw people wearing their business attires with CVs in hands..o.0
*how well prepared are they!!!*
it was my first time attending this career fair so i had no idea at all that we need to bring along our CVs...
hey!! it is a CAREER FAIR!! 
how the hell we know there is such thing as CV Dropbox there!!!
same meaning with PC Fair you don't see people bring their laptops or computers to the fair right??
*make sense?*
there were also blocks of small interview rooms provided...
so i guess those people with high profile will get to be interviewed right on the spot...
which is why they groomed themselves it also means they are superb confident with their background...
*or could it be they are too exaggerate in their CVs?..:p*
well i am probably the least-prepared person there...
because i wore superb casual that i think the colour of my attire was not that appropriate too?
because i had my-deeply-mad-love mint green pants on..-_-
with no CV in hand and not even a softcopy of it...
*superb unprepared*
but who cares..like i said..just a career FAIR...

i registered for this career fair because i know this is something i should take a look at...
being a fresh graduate whom has no working experience at all in my field of study...
i personally think this event is a good exposure for me...
whether to apply myself directly to the companies there...
or just to ask around on the jobs available...
because there are mostly multinational companies...
it would be nice to get to be interviewed by these big companies...
well i do have a few companies that i have aimed for after a long survey at the fair...
but because i did not bring along my CV..-_-
i was not able to pass my CV to them which was definitely a drawback...
because i believe people would definitely look at the hardcopy CVs first...
before checking out those that are sent through e-mails...

 i was lucky enough to have a lunch partner today...
my all-time-airen..:)
so coincident that she is also scheduled for duty for their Public Bank booth at the fair...
so happy to get to have lunch with her...
else i will be the so called 'light bulb' of the day..-_-
i could sensed that airen can only have express lunch because they have shifts for their lunch...
i guess she has to get back to her booth on time so that her colleagues can have their lunch as well...
so we ended having our lunch at Waku Waku restaurant...
on the same floor and just right opposite the convention center...
Waku Waku is a Japanese cuisine restaurant...
so yay for me?..:D
of course it is Japanese cuisine in a homey ambience...
though it was an express lunch but we just never fail to catch up as much as we could with each other...

this is what i ordered
Sushi and Udon Mini Set
price at RM24.90
assorted sushi served with wheat noodles
it is a set so it also comes with a bowl of steamed egg and two side dishes...

the Waku Waku Restaurant that i visited is at
Lot T-015B, Level 3,
Mid Valley Megamall, Mid Valley City,
Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur.
Telephone: +603 2284 1172

i consider today as a fruitful day and a not so fruitful day...
fruitful as in getting tones and tones of goodies bags from the booths there...
notebooks, calenders, mini cardboard fans, key chains, and even thumb drives..o.0
and not to forget me being able to ask questions and also registered for some of the companies there...
and will need to submit my CV when i get back home...
not fruitful because i feel there are not many career options for fresh graduates...
when they asked me what experience i have and when i told them i am a fresh graduate...
they were like 'oohh..you may submit your CV to us first and we will see if there is any position suits you' face..-_-
not sure if i am sensing this right but this was how i feel that time...
