    JPA interview..on..2006..I apply for Engineering – Japan, it’s my first time interview,,n you know..nervous lah!!first we have to answer some objective questions..i dont remember what type of questions anymore.but i think it’s most likely about our interest in our choice..(if u choose engineering, is it u really like it or not..watever…)..
    then the most important part…discussion…we need to discuss bout how to promote malaysia..well, i got ideas to say..the problem is i dont really speak in English with anybody before..just writing man,n among 20 student there..i think i’m the poorer one.feel inferior sket..lastly..just say one idea n masa dh nk dkat abeh masa,the intervieweeee asked me if i have anything to say(it’s becoz i dont talk a lot!!)…i juz conclude watever others saying..huhu

    I went to Sime Darby Scholarship interview last time. Just want to be frank, I didnt make it to the 3rd assessment though. How sad. But, what do you expect from Sime Darby right? unless you are very well prepared or very good in critical thinking skills no matter what situation you are in. As for me, it was a very good first interview experience. At least, I made a very nice friends. 😉

    OK. Back to the assessment (Sorry for the self-babbling intro. heh 😉 )
    They first assessed you on your online filled form. You filled up your achievement, SPM results, bla bla bla. All basic things. They also got 3-5 questions which you have to answer them with not more than 3000 words if I’m not mistaken. All the questions are easy. I’m sure it was all part of psychological test though 😉

    Then, I got through to 2nd assessment which was the interview. They will informed you through your email. As for me, it was being held at Tractors Academy, Puchong. First session in the morning. We were being grouped to 3 (5-6 people per group). Group by group were called into another room and there we started our interview. Instead of we alone sit face to face with the 2-3 interviewers in a small room, we did it as a group and only ONE interviewer in a big conference room. But, still, she/he asked and we answered. Person by person.

    And then, the questions. *sigh sigh sigh* I thought I was expecting something like, well, you know, more general issues like landslides, children lack of care, environment care bla bla bla. BUT, all she asked was like “What do you know about Sime Darby?”, “What is you suggestion on how are we gonna improved our companies profit bla bla”, “what do you think is our biggest challenge bla bla”, “bla bla bla Agroculture, Health Care, Food products bla bla bla”. *sigh* There is no right or wrong answer during the interview. All they want to see is your character, skills in communication and how you deliver your opinion, the confidence etc. So, just be your self.

    Well, I passed. And there goes the computer assessment. Vocabulary and numerical test. We were given less than half an hour to complete each. I guess here where I failed the assessment. I can’t catch up the time limit though. I spent more than 3 minutes for the first 10 questions each while we should spent less than a minute for one question. Duhh!

    Well, I guess this ALL experience sharing-maring are not going to help you much if you are going to the scholarship interview soon. Because they don’t have any exact format. They might change everything without you even prepare for it. It will be all spontaneous. (I know you guys are busy googling here and there to have a peek what other people said about the previous interview. Well, that’s what I did before too 😉 ) Since, all you supposed to do is keep use to talk, communicate and discuss with people around you about current issues. Read articles, online or newspaper. Yeah, I know that’s what people will always tell you but believe me. They are so true. 😉

    jai…every company has their own interview format. The normal interview is always the same. But some companies introduce IQ test, english test, competency test.

    Be yourself, get to know on the current issue…
