Say whatttttt. But doesn’t the whole job hiring process center around experience??
So if not experience, what does predict new hire’s success in their new role? The professor recommends ‘focusing on the knowledge, skills, and traits directly rather than using experience or even education as a proxy.’
However, there are certain scenarios where experience matters, like task-based performance (like driving or operating machines).

Have you ever used learning as an excuse to NOT do something? Like, in a “oh I can’t possibly do that yet, I’m still learning about it” way.
Yeah. Hi. Can I join the club?
Creating video content is that thing that I’m forever ‘learning’. So far, in the last couple of years, I’ve:
Asked many people for advice
Bought some equipment
Bought a video-editing software
Bought and went through courses (including one in August designed to conquer the fear of being on camera, a course called ‘Confidence on Camera’)
Made a looooong list of possible video content angles
And yet – and yet! – at time of writing, I still can’t bring myself to actually do it. The only reason why I have a Ringgit Oh Ringgit Youtube channel set up (if you want to be an early subscriber…) is because I need a place to house a collaboration video done with HelloGold.
On one hand, ok fine baby steps. On another hand, this baby needs to grow the hell up.
Someone smack some sense into me please. Or suggest video content you want to watch, maybe that might help. I don’t know.
As I sat down with Rafiz Azuan Abdullah, the CEO of PIDM or Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia and asked my questions, it occurred to me that this man is truly at peace with doing a thankless job.
If you’re unfamiliar with what PIDM does, they are basically a government authority that provides protection for your deposits, as well as takaful and insurance benefits in the unlikely event a PIDM member institution fails.
For example, let’s say Bank X somehow goes bankrupt and you have RM10k saved there. As Bank X is a PIDM member bank, PIDM will make sure you get your RM10k back immediately.
I love my clients. They are freaking awesome. The best. They pay AND treat me well.
I feel like it’s time for me to be forward with my experience working with great clients, because if social media is to be believed, well-paying and respectful clients are supposedly hard to come by.
But let me just say – they’re not. I’ve had the odd bad apples, but in my four years (so far) working in self-employed capacity, the majority of my clients were nothing but absolutejoys to work with.
(Note: I have two types of clients. Those who hire me in my capacity as Suraya the communications consultant and corporate writer to write reports and stuff, and those who hire me in my capacity as Suraya the blogger from Ringgit Oh Ringgit to promote their products and services. Both are amazing).
This post is a jumble of self-reflection – how and why do I get these amazing clients? I still don’t know for sure, but here are my theories.
