thesis, smart and pointwest technologies

/ / in / / Edit

THESIS IT! We've finally submitted our thesis (last april 17), our last and final requirement for college! this time i could really say hello to graduation! anyway, we had this book-bound at UP as a RUSH project and look at what they freakin did. The original title was, "Development of Computer Aided Instruction on Spelling", and look at how they pressed the letters. kayo na bahala tumingin, nakakatawa lang! hahaha at least naman they did a better job than those at FCM, ugly letter pressing, covering and binding haha weh.

april 19 was truly a blessing, i got 3 interview calls that i had to reschedule the other one. the first one is from smart communications, inc. (priority employer, Lord! have them call me back please!!!), the second is from Pointwest Technologies and the other, Askuserv Philippines. the latter is located at Greenhills and the rest at Makati so i prioritized the Makati located ones first. 

i stayed up late trying to locate the two on Google maps and also trying to plot my walking adventure based on the map. Smart is walking distance from the MRT station as Pointwest is to Smart so i figured i'd just walk forever hahaha grabe lang, i'm not used to makati and i know it's not a jaywalker friendly district so all my walks and turns have to be exact hahaha

so there:

@ Smart


the interview was fine. i just hope they call me back. please please, Lord? thank you! i could really feel the competition, feeling ko all the shortlisted applicants they invited for interview have strong resumes! one guy on my table is a top performer in his class and the other one whom he was talking with has had years of experience on software engineering. hay ewan. >X'(

@ Pointwest Technologies


i arrived there at around 11:30 and opted to take the exam already even though it would cost me lunch time. their exam was freaking hard, in fact they call it "The Hardvard Test" haha luckily, i passed! and so i kind of moved on to level 2 and was given ANOTHER TEST which was way harder. ewan ko ba, gutom na gutom na ko nun! i thought it was over after the 2nd test but while waiting for the interviewer, they made us write an ESSAY! haha then ayon interview and blah. after that they scheduled me for a final interview with their software engineer 4 chuva, supposedly head of the team where they're putting me in. some kind of microsoft business analysis and quality assurance chuvaness team nakalimutan ko amp but it sounds a lot easier than the software development chuva team hahaha joke. they asked me to come back the next day for that final interview BUT ARGHHHH that's the start of the 3-day leadership summit i was supposed to attend at ateneo so sabi ko i can't make it, next week pa ako available, ayon so they'll just call me na lang daw and probably get me in another team (the softdev team) kasi the microsoft chuva team will be starting on friday already. argh talaga argh. sayang job opportunity. lechugaaaaassss. i finished there at 6:30pm imagine hahaha

ang pinaka-ayoko pa naman na sinasabi ng interviewer ay, WE'LL CALL YOU. because chances are, THEY WON'T! >:'(

i'll try to blog about the Youth Leaders' Summit for Good Governance SOOOOOOON when i have time lol kasi super dami kong sasabihin tinatamad lang ako hehehe

basta ang pinaka-nakakainis lang dun sa summit ay, I MISSED THE CALL FROM EMERSON because my phone was on silent!!!!! sobrang devastating kasi peg na peg ko na yun eh, i mean, so far sa mga na-applyan ko, shempre priority smart, tas pangalawa yun, emerson! nako nako nako Lord. hay...

how did i know it was from emerson ba? i called back shempre! good thing it wasn't a dummy phone number, unfortunately it's their customer service who answered and they're not capable of tracking who called me so they advised me to just wait for their call again. ayan nanaman, maghihintay nanaman ako ng tawag. hay. hay. hay. e dati pa naman when i missed a call from east west, they didn't call back! anyway, yun naman ay rejected call hindi missed call so whatever haha
