Last week, I was contacted by the Assistant Director of International Graduate Admission of the Uni. A very nice gentleman. He told me that the department is currently in need of an extra hand since they are shorthanded and the work load is growing. Semua ni pasal nak kejar for the coming Fall and Winter intake. Straight to the point, he straight away asked me whether I can do a voluntary work in their office.
After a short meeting dgn dia, he lays out his expectations and I put forward my limitations. Both of us agrees to a point, and I agreed to lend the extra hand that he needed. Furthermore, I felt terhutang budi jugak kat dia and the Director of the department. Banyak diorang bantu masa tengah sibuk2 nak apply masuk UNH ni dulu. And I know they are very efficient people.
Maka pada hari Selasa baru ni, mula la my voluntary work at the International Graduate Admission of the Uni. Basically semua keja2 administrative and clerical je. Susun and simpan files. Settle surat keluar masuk dan lain2 tugas yg diarahkan dari semasa ke semasa. I was paired up with a Croatian guy, kira dia jadi mentor la since dia memang working student kat situ.
Kebetulan masa tengah nak settlekan surat2 offer, ternampak satu nama yg familiar. Alhamdulillah kawan sorang tu pun diterima masuk to this Uni jugak. Akan ku tunggu kehadiran kau dgn family next year. Tahniah!
Overall its a great experience working even though kira buat keja amal je, since tak dibayar gaji. At least boleh la isi masa lapang since utk Summer ni I'll be focusing purely on my research project and Jenjalan US part2 yg seterusnya...
