This was My Job

Being a coder was not my dream at all. To be an alumnus of an informatics engineering university was also not my dream. I was dreaming to be like my father, a civil engineer.

4 months passed and finally I got job offering from Malaysian office, it’s called ehors. A company which provides IT solutions for hospitality industry. They had some clients in Malaysia, Dutch, and Indonesia. That was cool, I think. I was required to be able to code in PHP and MySQL. It’s so easy and finally I got the job. For a month, I had training phase in Penang and it was really nice. Continue reading “This was My Job”
