Looking for Accounts Assistant - Day 1

Yeah! my recruitment drive start again.
One of Accounts girl went missing after first month salary.
Too tough I guess!!!
Young generation nowadays even when they need money to survive they still opt not to work.
They just could not take up the challenge and go for it when people are willing to train them.

Anyway, end of last week start calling the candidate but I gave up after the second call.
mmmmm... yeah! I am still a human with feeling and know how to give up.
My second call goes ....

Candidate : I am not looking for job and I never apply...

I go arrrggghhhh!!!!!
Is it mean I am the one who applied?????
Thats it!

I end up change strategy.
Shortlisted the potential candidates then use email and sms function from jobstreet.
no more calling.
You either accept or decline my invitation.
I invited 20 candidates for 3 days recruitment drive interview which started today and will end my interviewing on Friday before 2.30pm.
So far received 8 acceptance from potential candidates.

Today I interviewed only 3 person.
Most of them are graduate with Bachelor Degree in Accountancy from local Uni.
Their age around 23 - 24 years old and fresh grad.

Case 1
Me : What is your ambition?
Candidate : Become an accountant.
Me : What is you preparation to become accountant?
Candidate : I will take LCCI Higher in Accounting.
Me : You already earned a Diploma in Accountancy. don't you think LCCI higher is a duplication to your current Diploma and a waste of time?
Candidate : No! LCCI Higher... is higher than a diploma!
Me : Go back do some homework to ensure you are at the right path or you just waste of your time and money.

Candidate : Speaking

Case 7
Me : If Creditors accounts appear as Debit Balance, what does it mean?
Candidate : Bad debts

I seriously want to die interviewing this people at Day one.
What happen????
Attitude problem or education system???
They can't even converse in English properly as Graduate in Bachelor Degree.

Tomorrow I hope to get better one but I am loosing my hope and don't put high expectation anymore.
I told my Assistant, I am lowering dowm my expectation or I will die inside that interview room.

Tonight is Arsenal vs Harimau Malaya.
I am not a football fan but for our Malaysia boys!

Hitam kuning hitam kuning
Go Tiger Go Tiger!!!

Hope they could score some goals. Don't need to win but one goal for Malaysia will be good!
