July 09 - letters as life experience

Here are the extraction of 4 mailing which I received recently which I indicate it as life experience. The first two was from my current workplace. It was frustrating indeed, but then the last two mails make my day.

Mail - One
Despite your exemplary contribution to the university, we regrets to inform you that we are unable to process further your promotional application..... (know how, not know who..that is me) sucks - dont ask people to apply if you dont have the intention to promote your staff

Mail - Two
We regret to inform that your articles are not qualified for the incentive scheme (again know how, not not who, my paper is indeed accepted by one on refereed conference) another stupid policy; dont come up with such policy if you have double standards

Mail - Three
We would like you to join us as ........ for time being. Once you complete the PhD, the university will offer a better scheme up to Associate Professor. Since we are a research university, it will offer a conducive environment for people like you( an invitation from a public university of Malaysia)

Mail - Four (the best moment indeed....)
We would like to extend our invitation to you as Visiting Professor, from Jan 2011.( what!! a US-based state university invited me as a professor) (since then the conversation has been continue....)

Sometime with office politics, its only killing you and subsequently the organization. People will move forward and contributes more if only organization appreciate the workers. That is the core in human capital.

Life is a climb, at the end, the view is priceless - Miley Cyrus from Hannah Montana the Movie ;)

Hai Shahril, apa khabar sekarang ni?

Associate Professor atau Prof. Madya adalah pensyarah kanan yang telah berkhidmat dengan pengajaran dan pembelajaran lebih 10 tahun serta mempunyai ijazah yang bersesuaian

Professor pula adalah mereka yang memenuhi ciri2 di atas dengan penyelidikan yang cemerlang

Visiting Professor pula adalah Pensyarah yang mengajar / di pinjamkan kepada Universiti lain untuk sesuatu tempoh tertentu, kebiasaanya sebagai tanda pengiktirafan dalam sesuatu bidang tertentu

Hidup memang menarik jika kita tahu arah tuju dan objektifnya
