New Country, New Job!

I got to know about a job in Malaysia in the month of March while I was working at Virtusa. At that point I didn't know in which company I would be working in, but I wanted to work in a foreign country so applied. Days later I got a call from an agent in Sri Lanka that some people would be coming down from Malaysia for the interview and I would be called within 2 weeks time. To be honest I wasn't sure of what he said but kept my fingers crossed.

Right after two weeks I did get a call from the agent saying I have an interview on 4th of April at Galadari Hotel Colombo. I went there and there were three people from Malaysia from the company MIMOS including the CTO.

MIMOS is Malaysia's National Research and Development Institute for ICT. It comes directly under the purview of MOSTI, Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. It seemed a really good offer for me and I did quite well in the interview due to my preparedness. The CTO was impressed of my little Arduino Projects and during the interview I knew that I had at least 70% chance of getting in.

After two more weeks I got the news that I have been selected out of 14 interviewees as one of the potential employees. I was over the moon and started preparing to come to Malaysia. After more than one month of preparing I finally landed in Malaysia on 02nd of June 2013 at 7:15 a.m.

Now I am temporarily residing at Bukit Jalil which is closed to Technology Park Malaysia which is where MIMOS is located.

All thanks to god for giving me such a wonderful opportunity.
