If only it was a joke.....

Today's lunch was an elightening affair. A good friend of mine shared with me an interesting story relating to his beloved's job interview for a science officer in an un-named Government agency.

Well, this lady have years of experience in her line and was not all bothered by a pre-interview test. So off she went to book up on the impending test. Seems all are normal.

Until she saw the questions. Instead of questions to test her technical competency or some of those mind-twisting IQ questions supposingly to see how smart or sane you are, she was presented with retarded questions like, "What was the motto of the PM's first 100 days", "Which country did the PM went to last?".

WTF? Seems like it's more of a loyalty test than anything else.

I really hope it is a joke. I really do. But then again the ruling regime no longer surprises me with its foot in mouth policy.

that's considered normal in government sector interview. Once I was asked in an interview for government post, what is the motto of TV1 and TV2 :)

Besides, there's your answer to the "why are the employees from a certain sector so incompetent?" question....

Hope you are satisfied that you finally got the answer y :P

@blackorga, Dude that's sad and it only shows what a dumb ruling regime and civil service we have. I don't have a TV (nothing worth watching on TV anyways) at home so does that mean I am under-qualified as far as the civil service is concerned? Or only those who religiously watch and memorise what's in the mainstream media are fit to serve the country? Fracking sad!

@Kash Man, it's an open secret that quality really doesn't matter in the civil service of the current regime. So as long they absorb the trash they generate from their dumb policies in Education they will pat themselves on the back for a job well done. Berkhidmat Untuk Rakyat, does not even remotely register in those cranial recesses of bureaucrats.
