Education System or me

As mentioned in previous entry I am searching for candidates to fill up Accounts Executive position. Today I met up with 3 more candidates.
All of them with Bachelor Degree in Accountancy with at least 6 months to a year.
Their age between 24-25 years old and graduated from their Degree at least a year ago.

I tested all of them with simple double entry.
Ah! to my disappointment all of them received '0' mark.
You will give them the same as well .....

Among answers received from them :

* Expenses in Credit Balance
* Sales in Debit Balance
* Furniture & fittings is expenses
* Debtors in credit balance

.... and they are all graduate of Bachelor Degree in Accountancy.
Ambition to be an Accountant.

After having a hard time testing them on basic double entry, here are some of very annoying answer I received :

Me : Do you know the questions I just asked you is basic foundation for accounting job?
Candidate : Yes. But I never learn all those.

Me : How do you earn your Bachelor Degree in Accountancy?
Cancidate : Nope. never remember I did that.

Me : Ahhhhhh.... your syllabus must be the different type of Accounting studies.mmmmm
Candidate : ahhhhh... true true (with very blur and innocent look)

Me : Why you want to leave your current employment?
Candidate : Current position is Accounts Clerk and I am a Bachelor Degree, I need to be an Accounts Executive position.

Me : Tell me role of Accounts Executive?
Candidate : Don't need to do ground work and documentation. Just present and analyse to the top management.

Me : What is full sets of Accounts?
Candidate : Income Statement

Me : Thats all?
Candidate : Yeah!

Me : How are you going to analyse thing if you don't even know Expenses suppose to be in Debit Balance and Debtor suppose to be in Debit Balance.
Candidate : I just report...

I have many things to write but it was very frustrating moment today.
I almost loose my patience facing all these young ones!

Good luck to these people.
I wonder what they learnt in their Degree???
I am one without a Degree but just work hard from bottom to the top. All through experience and initiative.

I believe all these Graduates earned their Degree by just memorising the theories to pass exam and forget about it after graduated.
They can't even practic what they had learned?
Is there something wrong with our education system?

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

My Plantar Fasciitis getting bad after return down to KL from Genting short weekend getaway recently. I guess my backpack load too heavy and stress up my heel so much. For those who don't know what is Plantar Fasciitis, I will give you some brief about this. Who knows it may hit you too once you aging like me...hehehe. Anyway, its good to know. Plantar Fasciitis is common pain for middle-aged people. WTH! can't believe I aged this quickly. Young people don't so happy! If you on your feet a lot and do lots of sports, this can hit you too.This pain caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch.  I got mine last year after came back from Taiwan trip in April 2016. I got diagnosed with knee problem in June 2016. So literally tackle my pain one by one. I concentrate on my knee healing and ignore the pain on my feet. Recently the pain on bottom of my heel getting unbearable. Every step with lots of pain and really wish can swallow pain killers or I kill people

How to Buy the Right Bra ?

Warning! This post is all about 'boobies'. If you have an allergy to 'boobies', please do not read this post. Don't blame me for not warning you. Read at your own risk. 😝 I really love shopping. Who doesn't? My most favourite shopping items are clothing and beauty care. There is one thing will give me an eerie and heavy heart if you even give me free shopping money for this item. Bra! For such a small item of clothing, bras are the hardest task for me.  First of all, I have bad experience shop for my own bra a long time ago. My perception, the salesperson who man the bra section mostly aunties who just care about the commission. Unlucky me always met the sales person who will criticize my 'poor boobies'. I have experienced one salesperson scoop up my 'boobies' just to check on my size. WTH! Super rude! I was taken aback at that time. Immediately made a 'U-turn' and never return. I was so puzzled and confused at that time. Why sh
