assalamualaikum w.b.t

"tuntutlah ilmu itu hingga ke liang lahad "

That phrase is very meaningful in my life. walau kita sudah berumur 80 tahun sekali pun, tuntutlah ilmu kerana dengan ilmulah dapat membezakan kita dengan orang lain. bagi seorang Islam, ilmu dan iman seiring dan sejalan yang dapat membezakan kita dengan orang lain dan bukanlah taraf 'kekayaan' itu yang membezakan sesama kita. I believe with this phrase " nothing is impossible to a willing heart". selagi apa yang kita mahu and we make an effort towards it including doa, insyaAllah apa yang kita mahu akan tercapai ^_^

Interview : Interior design di UiTM

Salam Alaykum

Hello peeps out there. Hope you fine and really enjoy your life with His blesses. It’s been a while since I last updated my blog. Dah berhabuk dah blog ni. Fuhhh…

Because of so many people ask me to share my interview experienced, so I’ve decided to share it in this blog. And I hope it will help for those who will go to the interview especially for interior design course because before I went to the interview I made research from many blogs and it helped me a lot.

25th May 2013

Woke up early in the morning, wore the best cloth (extra mark for those who are good appearance). At 9.30 a.m. my mother and I started our journey to UiTM Machang. It took about 20 minutes to arrive there.

When we arrived there, so many parents were waiting for their children patiently. Ada makcik-makcik sampai tertidur atas kerusi tu. Hehe.. After registered my name and course, I was patiently waited for my turned and made final preparation. Recheck all those documents that were required.

Then, one of the guys who sat at the registration counter called my name and a few candidates and asked us to go to a class for drawing test.

In that class, there were a few blocks in a table such as cuboid, pyramid, sphere and cylinder. We were required to draw all those blocks. There were many tables that were arranged like table in meeting room. Meaning that the blocks were located at the centre of the class and we were free to sit at any tables. So I preferred to sit at a table that I can saw the blocks clearly. Actually I didn’t have any skills in drawing. But I tried my best for that test.

After finished the test that took about 1 hour, then we were required to go to another class for the interview. While we were waiting for our turned, I asked the one who sat beside me. Her drawing was so good.

Me : Awak dulu belajar course apa?
She : Saya diploma interior design jugak dulu. Before masuk diploma pun interview macam ni jugak.
Me : So nak masuk degree pun kena interview lagi ke?
She: yes. Awak dulu belajar course apa?
Me : Owh…saya course engineering. Tapi memang minat interior design. Itu yang apply untuk degree tu.

Then someone called my name. It’s my turned. Bismillahi rahmani Rahim.. Rabbi yassir wala tu’assir. First step in that room made me so nervous. But Alhamdulillah He ease me. When I sat in front of the interviewer, all the nervousness was gone. Then interview session started.

He asked me to introduce myself in English. As usual I started with my name, age, family and my life target. At first when I introduced my name, he acted like usual. Just listening what I was talking about. Then only when I said that I studied in engineering for my diploma, he started stared at me. Then he said:

“Saya risaukan awak sebenarnya.”

I was shocked at that moment.

“Ramai student yang nak masuk engineering tapi tak dapat, awak dah dapat and dah grad tapi awak nak lepas macam tu je? ” He said

Keep smiling.

“Saya ada 2 sebab kenapa saya pilih kos ni. Saya sangat berminat dengan kos ni semenjak saya sekolah menengah. Second saya ada penyakit migraine. Saya suka belajar dalam course Civil engineering tetapi dia lebih banyak kepada activity outdoor. Saya tak boleh terlalu expose pada sunlight. Nanti saya akan sakit kepala.”

Then he replied me back.

“Bila saya tengok result awak, you are good in calculation. Awak boleh score dalam subject tu. Kalau awak diterima masuk ke bidang interior design, saya risau kalau awak tak boleh score.bidang ni takde calculation. Banyak belajar melukis je.”

He provoke me again.

“course ni boring taw kalau awak tak minat. Awak takpe ke?

My answered was simple. “yes I’m okay with it.”

“Course ni busy taw.banyak kerja and assignment. Nanti awak tak sempat nak tidur rehat..awak sanggup?”

Me : bagi saya itu tidak menjadi masalah sebab semasa saya di diploma pun, kerja dan assignment sangat banyak. And I’m okay with it.

Mr Interview : so awak betul-betul nak la ni?

Me : yes I am. J

Mr Interview : I like your confident level. tapi saya harap awak fikir masak-masak sebelum awak tukar kos ini. Kalau ikutkan memang awak lulus tapi saya risau kerana background study awak semasa diploma dulu adalah engineering.

Me : insyaallah ni pilihan terbaik saya.

Mr Interview : So saya rasa setakat ini sahaja lah sesi interview kita. All the best.

Fuhhh..soalan perangkap ! and Alhamdulillah He ease my way for this interview session. I think it’s satisfied me a lot even my drawing was not so good.

So sekarang just menunggu result untuk sambung ke degree nanti. Tawakkaltu ‘alallah. Allah tahu apa yang terbaik untuk diri saya.

Soalan-soalan yang saya study before interview:

  •        Sebab pilih course tersebut.
  •        Kenapa pilih UiTM?
  •              Siapa interior designer yang saya kenal?
  •        Potensi interior design di Malaysia

 Sekian...
