Salam and good morning.
I went to the faculty's office this morning after I've finished my project management's class to submit the graduation form and few others necessary things which need to be attached together with the form.
I met some of my friends there,filling some other forms which I didn't fill earlier on.Oh,they were actually acquiring academic partial transcript which I don't think I need it at this moment.
They told me that they're going to start applying for job,or in other words 'job hunting'.Wow! sounds impressive.
Some of them are planning to continue for Master Degree either locally or aboard.If I'm not mistaken,3 of my classmates had already apply for Master in UK and still waiting for confirmation.
Just now one of my classmates told me that xxx is planning to go for Master in Australia.The rest,some of them just continue it locally.
As far as I concerned,the QS students graduated from this university are all employed.Due to the 'fluency in English' (As what employer expected from graduates of IIUM)some of the graduates were sent aboard to manage construction projects there.Some of my seniors are in Dubai,China,Abu Dhabi,UK,Singapore etc.But I couldn't take that for granted.
Looking at my friends,I'm a bit envy as they have their own plans.Even some have already being engaged to inherit family contracting firm.
But nevertheless I'm ok with what I'm now.Yeah I did plan to further my studies but I won't continue it in the field of construction anymore.Maybe something related to Islamic Revealed Knowledge/Islamic studies.If Allahyarham Syeikh Dr.Fathi Yakan the author of the famous book 'Apa Ertinya Saya Menganut Islam?'can divert his academic life from an Engineering student to Islamic Studies,why can't me?
Or I should just going back to my 'kampung' after my graduation and do the 'kerja-kerja kampung'.I don't care what people gonna say as long as I enjoy it very much.
Anyhow,it is only the matter of planning.As long as we do our works for the sake of Allah,Insha Allah,there are rewards for it.
