A new criterion

Looks like the metamorphosis of slaves is really beginning to take its toll on some slave masters. Apparently, the rise of “The New Breed” is causing problems in companies which thrive on squeezing the very last bit of life out of modern slaves. Well, with the rise of The New Breed, they don’t really fall within the definition of modern slaves anyway, no?

And so some companies are actually taking some measures to ensure that they recruit at least “The Transitional Generation”, and try to avoid The New Breed as much as possible. How are they doing that?

Apparently, they have included an unwritten rule in the recruitment policy. They believe that this particular information in the CV will somehow help them segregate the The New Breed out.

And this particular criteria is…
































Cheras… Can consider…
SS2, PJ… This is a tough one…
Mont Kiara… Only select if we have no choice…
Seremban… definitely can consider…
Malacca… definitely can consider…
Penang… HIGHLY potential!
Ipoh… HIGHLY potential!
Taiping… MUST recruit!
Subang/Sunway… hmmm, another tough one…
Damansara Heights / Tropicana…. BAN!!!

Get the drift?

P/S: Zewt did not intend to offend anyone, just in case.

Well, soon they will run out of stock of modern slaves, and then what are they gonna do? Seriously, we modern slaves must change our ways. I promise to leave work latest by 6:30 pm today. If I don't then, err... there's no more hope for me!

Seems like the criteria is, the more ah beng the place, the better potential to find slave? hahaha.

Kellaw said...

Penang also must consider which part first.

-=SiN=- said...

why no klang???

CiNDi said...

This applies to all companies across the nation or just within K.L?

If it's K.L, I could understand the fear. Although ironically, the company I'm going to intern in took only people from Selangor.

Oh well, we are scaaary and I live in hmmm another tough one.

Fear me!

KGC said...

I like! I am from Penang!

EliteVillain said...

lol Cheras....My friends live there lol now they are in potential slave list =X

Crankster said...

Good to know the average Malaysian is wising up to the fact that it's just plain stupid to work for peanuts.

Asians are regarded by Caucasians as natural selection for slaves. No one else is stupid enough to do it.

kyh said...

I'm not from Penang, but Penang is the nearest to me on the list! :P

Gillian said...

Oh my gosh! That is so true!! I recently attended an interview and when the MD saw that I was from TTDI, he said "You live in TTDI, why do you have to work?"

WTF man. Seriously....

We should sue these companies kau kau for DISCRIMINATION.

Heya zewt, just wanna leave an out of topic comment:

I saw you last night at The Curve!! You were talking to Dan at The Laundry, right? Hehehehe. I was the one in front of him. Wanted to say but nevermind lah. You seemed busy. :)

And oh, long time no see in here! :P

Ethel said...

WY Kam 甘永元 said...

what about kampung baru? brickfields? Bangsar? pantai dalam? sentul? gombak?

dear zewt..u missed out many places!

Huei said...

ok i better keep my mum's address then! ;P

otherwise..i'm a tough one! well kinda

Angie Tan said...

cham.. in order to increase my chances of being recruited, I need to change my address?? :-P

although i'm an old fart somewhere in mid-management but then, with such "policies" i might be bundled in with the new breed and hence, be segregated out!

bensiu said...

Hahaha - Hey Zewt! How's it goin'?
I guess it's similar to Msian working in Spore? Many employers in Spore prefers Msian workers because we are considered desperate when we go there...

At least we r being appreciated la(Im from Seremban), in Thailand, job seekers from other northern provinces just end up being taxi drivers in Bangkok, even though they are qualified..

Please tell the employers, my family may afford living in Damansara Heights doesnt mean me as the child will suck and suck like a leech till its dry...Hmmph!

gina said...

LOL!! I am from Taiping worr.. so does that mean.. I am willing to work hard for peanuts? LOL!

zewt said...

Terra Shield - so was it successful? we should not just do it for a day... make a lifestyle :)

emelda - :P

leyaw - looking at the trend... i wouldnt rule it out.

Klaw - not ah beng... just that small town ppl are more willing to slave it out. come to big city and have to pay rent and all... no choice mah.

Kellaw - where is that ah?

taxy - your part... ban also? hahahahaha....

-=Sin=- - klang... would fall under "can consider" i think :)

zewt said...

CiNDi - my source of info refers to companies in the klang valley...

KGC - hahaha... very good slave... i mean worker.

Crankster - true indeed... we have never been free. they just introduce new measures to enslave us.

kyh - so you'll definitely be a good slave in the fuure :P

Gillian - hahahahaha... yup... that's what i am telling you. this is a new unwritten criteria....

erm - let me have a look...

Faisal Admar - good to pick up workers too...

zewt said...

EliteVillain - what about u? hehe...

Ethel - hey... why didnt u say hello? i think i remember how u look like...

WY Kam - bangsar is slowly joining the ban list... hahaha... well, i cant comment on all right? but i am sure u get the idea...

huei - hehehehe... origin mana?

Angie Tan - well, u dont plan to jump ship now... do u? this unwritten criteria is applied mostly to new graduates.

bensie - hey ben... doing great, u? hahahahaha... well, it's just a general understanding and unfortunately, damansara heights is really one area where ppl "BAN!" hahaha...

gina - just ask yourself... are u working for peanuts? :P
