Recently, I played LinkedIn, anyone know about it? Anyone?
Well, it was introduced by my cousin, whos a freelancer offshore underwater tech guy. Earns a lot in his living. Anyway, so, as I hastily created my profile page and stuff like that. I checked out his profile page.
Here's something that caught my interest... IF you know LinkedIn, then you probably know that its a career building social network, and you probably know that there's that "endorse" option, when if someone agrees that you have the skills, say "mechanical", he will endorse that on your skills list. So its +1 to "mechanical" for one person. Then, in a whole list, you could get a list of +2 or +5 skills endorsed by people who knows you. And It's a damn looker if one of your skills gets more than +10.
Haha.. anyway, I hastily wrote in interest and my current job experience, and my study career. Then browsed the website more... Saw few of those PROs back in university, and I decided to stalk their pages. Whoa... you know.. it's an eye opener. A girl (actively professional one) i know back then had worked in many places as trainee or intern.. most only lasted 3-4 months. some as a cashier, some as a admin, some as pharmacy assistant. To me, it was a waste because she studied Mechanical Engineering. Then, she's now studying a different field in a different university. Although I would say its a pity that she jumped field too, but... well, I kinda realize... All that jobs she took, side job or low paid job, are only making her nearer in pursuing what she wanted (as stated in her personal summary, and interest) which is all about new technology and biomedical improvements, man... That's the bottom line. All this years, she's building her future career, based on her interest.
And what hit me hard was when I checked back in my profile page...
In my study career, I wrote Mechanical Degree,
In my job experience, I wrote operating and testing machinery stuff, worked in power plant bla bla bla.
Then in my interest...
I only wrote one word..
Which comes out from the bottom of my heart..
You could tell that I am now sulking under my bed sheet now right?
