New Committee Members!

Hey all,

I just realized that no one updated the new members of our "shuffled" committee, so I decided to do it. Check if your names are correct, and tell me if I had forgotten something.

I also would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our new president and vice president!

Congrats Faris and Nadhira!

May you both lead our club with much stride, and find us not so annoying to deal with. Ahahahah! It's going to be another fabulous year! (Or maybe I'm saying this becuz I miss the Davis M'sians - hahaha)

p/s Have a great summer guys!

the jobs are out there

Well....my dad e-mailed me some stats about the current Malaysian job market...these stats don't look too good, but we all gotta keep our chins up and keep job hunting. I just began today...

Copied directly from the e-mail (granted, I don't know how valid this e-mail was):
1) about 30,111 Malaysians have lost their jobs since last October.
2) According to the Higher Education Ministry’s Graduate Tracer Study, 55.1% of graduates were employed six months after they graduated last year while about 80% secured jobs within the same period in 2007.
3) The good news is that although the outlook for the local employment market remains subdued, companies are still hiring, especially to fill key positions.
4) According to The Star’s job portal Star-Jobs senior executive Joyce Lee, other sectors are also hiring.

Hahah...I went to look at The Star's website, and most job postings are for advertising stuff...

Good luck to us, Class of 09. We might be down, but we're not out of the game yet! I just started, after all.
