Month: September 2018

about job interview, good business practises on sales deal and personal data protection precaution I take recently.

I want to share about my job hunt from last week ago 5 weekdays I send a lot of resume in online job advertisement, in total I have received 11 interviews, 1 last Friday, 8 this week including tomorrow, 1 next Monday and 1 on Tuesday like from recruitment agency, next week got upcoming one also from recruitment agency but pending confirmation as they given me a date time got crash with another appointment.

In Summary out of 11 interviews appointment confirmed, I have 1 interview which is from job agency. Last 3 months ago, at least hit some recruitment agency, but some recruitment agency may ask you come to their office sign a application form stated like if you resign in 3 or 6 months need to pay agency a month of pay for service fee. This month I rested for a week in first week then prepare resume started to mass send online job advertisement, but this time a lot lesser to recruitment agency more on company direct job posting instead. This whole week and last weekend I stop send out my resume to prevent my call too flooded for job inquiry so I wait till next week start see how if I need to send mass resume online job advertisement again unless now I accepted a job offer.

So quite a big improvement as no need send my resume much to recruitment agency still can get a lot of job interview, provided there are some condition need to follow like resume must be very clear, detailed, not messy and duplicated information and also expected pay cannot jack up too much from last drawn also need to indicate in some others like clear passport photo for example.

That bring me to a point why I send you this e-mail. There is one job recruitment agency I caught her on hand due to my recently personal data protection precaution I take. This job recruitment agency called me my first mobile number, had send e-mail to confirmed appointment and stated near appointment date time she will contact me to prep through, so I replied her e-mail to confirmed appointment again. I do some search which I did not submit my resume through online job advertisement to this job recruitment agency at all only this month. So she called a day before, asking me if I free to prep before going for job interview, I told her 2pm onward can call me. So I waited at 830pm she called me using a different mobile number which is not in her e-mail signature stated to my second mobile number, asking me can talk, I told her make it quick, she ask my pro and con. So I told her this is not right and hang up the phone immediately. I send her e-mail immediately after I end her call asking I did not receive the JD, asked where do you see my resume to know this number, how come called using different number also. She replied my e-mail she found it from monster my resume which donkey years I never use monster online job advertisement web site to deposit my resume and make it public searchable. She also said the phone number talk time value run out did not top up so use another phone number to call me instead. I replied her e mail please delete all my resume and no need to find any more job from me due to personal data protection act.

I going to share what is good business practices on sales deal. This will exclude small simple business self employed like small food stall in hawker for example. Basically the sales should be working as a team, not as individual like one person more sales more commission and other less sales less commission earned. Maybe the organization can make sales team basic pay a bit less from other team or department or the same, but will enjoy commission equally just like round robin operation that kind. The sales team will have fair share of some difficult and easy client to get business deal in instead of people says those commission earn a lot than others due to having too many easy client causing it. Of course the organization will have to set a minimum sales target if not people come in to work after 3 months will have a mindset since first days onward that just get zero do nothing at work. Another example will be people sell laptop for S$100 as many as possible just to earn a bit of profit and or to hit sales target, but client use a few days become faulty does not work at all so other department or team will handle it cannot fix will cause the whole organization to suffer.

Hope my sharing is helpful to you and your team as well as to the nation. No action is required from you and your team. No law enforcement needed to set unless your team thinks is needed especially private organization have its way of running business as some organization will suffer or gain even they follow my suggestion or not. Your team can raise any small or big meeting to discuss if there is a need or issue going on now or later.

About giving and good faith practise.

There is many issue happening recently, this is what am I feel about and my sharing.

Well, even people in church asked me to start serving in ministry, but I thinking as to become minister for me instead even though I already left nothing now.

Resident can come and make all the complaint to me, I can always keep listening pretending for me to be their minister to serve the nation on stage later shown in local TV news, the only fellow who suffer is only me get nothing in the end that so simple.

Everyone born to be rich and generous is already in their mindset who do not want, only just want to stay poor all their life?

What kind of richness we all should have?

In the New testament, Jesus taught us to be love god, love people, love yourself, to preach the gospel where old testament does not have any four of these.

If people want to be rich lack any of the four, even not preaching the correct gospel to be good not great, this is what happen to the churches and the world a lot of problem.

If we give more bless more, people, churches priest pastor and leader also will give more bless more provided is according to the God word. This is so much better than spend a bit of money buy any lottery even.

For example, people sent up a business, get some contractor do task, once task done business owner get the credit but contractor get none, when bad things happen, contractor will be the first to get loss, what is these? Business owner no work done, or no good work or do not know what is good work? Of course contractor had some advantage, maybe learn more things but business owner know nothing only knows how to make money?

Our faith is the only one so far in the world had nice music where we can worship god mostly old music like classical or a bit secular pop music can some relate to, good story to know god also, which faith or no faith or against any faith people practice will have any of these?

I not against tithe, or giving 10% anything like time at least every Sunday 2 hours to be in church, money totally. For me I do not believe in especially in New Testament about tithing that why I do not have a home church locally till now. Well if people want to tithe, they should understand what is the meaning the truth like what I said in any of the four as above paragraphs of this e-mail reply. Of course people should be encouraged to give generously so that the ministry can do more good works.

Please protect your personal Data now, it is very precious to you in order to prevent any data leak.

As of the update of Personal Data Protection Act in 31 Aug 18 from

I want to give you some guidance on how to protect your personal data due to new regulation of disclosing our identity number and images information in Singapore.

Firstly, you will need to spend money get a second mobile number to maintain it, this second mobile number can be insert into same mobile phone and it should work to receive and doing outgoing phone calls and text SMS if not can buy second phone for this usage. You never disclose your primary contact number to very close one even for work purpose at all. If emergency, also cannot disclose your primary number, should be someone who is very close to you too. Leave your primary number disclose to very closed one your loves one like friends for example. Now phone that can have two SIM card for two numbers are very cheap, cost three hundreds plus Singapore Dollars maybe with a local set full one year manufacture warranty right now. We do not need to use memory card to put in phone as I hardly use it, as got cloud service in phone online, additionally also have google or apple cloud service online to backup some stuffs in our phone.

The second number should be using it for work, apply job, like some organization for religion and if you use their product and service usage later on. If you somehow change the second number for at least like every month once, organization should send you e-mail like personal e-mail address to contact you instead if they cannot contact your number. Organization should just send one time reminder to your e-mail if they did not receive a reply from you like a few days later that all.

Identity number should be with last 4 characters only like 123A for example, remember to update all of your documents before you send out now like resume.

An Example for usage like writing resume.
A: Do not disclose your full name, only your surname at most with your English name similar to other kinds of religion name.
B: Birth date should be edited to year of birth, also do not disclose your birth date instead.
C: Address should not be disclose in full also, just put Ang Mo Kio for example.
For the D will be the phone number and E Identity number also.

The reason for doing A to E as above is due to there are too many issue with job agency doing head hunting so trying to safe guard. If head hunting call you to release a lot of these detail then they can later let you know the job information before they can submit for you, kindly reject them so that they can find a better people suited for their job recommendation. I will have to send resume now that I rested one week after my last day which is last month end, will avoid these kind of head hunter specialists as much as I can to slowly find job.

Something interesting that happen in my life for the first time since I was born.

Well, a deposit account since bank started operating in the beginning as the first product is for you to put money with them so that you can take out. But you see the screen shot really amaze me if got such thing can happen really, not even talking about any kind of fund transfer, payment, credit facilities. Maybe I should not try to store anything on earth or even heaven as God is everything?

Cash is King. Bank is very Secure. I have no comment to say about cashless and/or fintech to promote now. Going to sleep soon as it passes midnight.

Now back to business, maybe service restored within two hours maybe.

Double confirmed not only me got this issue. It was reported by others earlier than me since Sat 01 Sep 2018 evening in this screen shot which I taken.
