A Change Of Pace And Place

April 10, 2008

In a few hour’s time, I will be at my Army reservist in-camp training. It’s indeed a period of time where things now become different. Aside from training and speaking, now it’s the military gearing up for the next couple of weeks.

I’ve learnt to understand a few things about changes in life situations:

1. Change is constant.

2. It’s better to embrace change positively than negatively.

3. The more unexpected the changes are, the more you have to compose yourself.

That’s it for now as I prepare to don my greens for the new change. See you in a couple of days’ time (…when I book out.)

Always Excel Beyond Excellence!

How You Can Prepare And Excel In Your Interview?

April 10, 2008

Yesterday I completed the 2nd day of the “Sayang Kerja, Sayang Keluarga” (SK2) (Love Your Work, Love Your Family). I loved the way the participants showed their enthusiasm as they shared various learning points. They were motivated and took note of what would make a difference for their lives.

Here are some of the ways you can prepare effectively and excellently for your interview:

1. Build a substantial job bank first.

2. Research and study the company you are interviewing in and the job you are applying for.

3. Be confident before you step into the interviewing room.

4. Expect uncommon questions and queries that seemed irrelevant.

5. Smile.

6. Arrive earlier to get a feel of the place and be accustomed to its setting.

7. Develop a firm and warm handshake.
