5 years ago, 5 years then


5 years ago, I came to this. I had to make a decision on which path should I continue on my study so as my career. This was what I thought last time. Future career is propotional to the course that I study.

Recently I attended a career fair in my campus. A person from The Star company gave me a test on which career suits me. Guess what I got? I got 2 kind of description: Organisers and Persuaders. These 2 is far far away from the description that I as an Engineering student should have, which is Thinker. However, deep in my heart I know that's how my heart sounds.

The guy asked me in disbelief: "You studying Engineering?"
Me: "Yea."
Him: "What make you choose that course?"

****I was totally blank in few seconds****

I used to get that question in my freshman year. But I am now a final year student and only I realize that how hard is it to answer this question.

I got a deep breath and replied: "Just because I got 'A's for my Physics, Maths and Add Maths in my SPM."

After 5 years, only I have the guts to admit it. Seriously I don't choose it because I really know it. It's just because that's the only one I know. I felt that my choice is restricted. In my time, Sciences students went for Medicine, Dentistry, Engineering while Art students went for Accounting. That's it. Just look at the course offered by the institution. It's a variety~!!!

5 years then and the clock is ticking. There's no time to play the blame game. I am now in the same junction. But now I am different. I make the move. Decide in the things I am interested in and just proceed. Do it or my time will pass. That leads to a conversation between me and my mum.

"Mum, after I graduate, I might not be an engineer. But I promise if I am, I will be the best. If I am not, please dont blame me for spending so much money but end up in zero."

I am glad that my mum node her head after hearing my quote "I have spend more than RM50000 to know that this doen't suit me. I don't wan to spend the rest of my time on it again."

Today I get in touch with a good buddy of mine. She mentions to me regarding her dillema. I have said my words. Hope she will pick a choice of hers and still get the bless from her loved one. I sincerely wish her all the best.

Waiting for the junction...

u mean the test? It's actually a manual test that we need to place the cards that have questions on it into boxes with YES & NO. In the end, it will show u what u get.

kudos to u!

it's the asian culture and mentality.. i did the same though mine was accounting and finance..

went on to do audit and hated every minute of it.. completed my cpa to boot!

ppl always say wahhh... accountant.. got cpa.. got audit experience.. can get job.. can earn lots of $$

but i was miserable.. and i hated it. i want to pursue sth else. HR.. or photography but is it too late?

i think not but others do and always will be there to pressure u..

so.. hang in there.. it's good ur mum's ok with it.. =) hope u can find out soon what u wanna do and that u'll be happy with it!
