Watch What You Say

I can say all I have achieved in my life is begin with what I said. For example, I always say I want to be a consultant in past. I said that very lightly as if being a consultant is easy. And now, I am a consultant for six years! I have never been able to enter manufacturing, oil and gas company, or fast moving consumers goods company. I think I started to believe that what you say is what you pray for.

I always feel I will not get a chance to work at oil and gas company. Honestly, right now, I am looking for opportunity “to settle”. Last time, I thought I will work for the rest of my life in my previous company since I am already a permanent employee. But, something happened. (more…)

I Participated in Lokakarya Sertifikasi Insinyur Profesional LSIP

Yesterday I participated in “Lokakarya Sertifikasi Insinyur Profesional LSIP” or Professional Engineers Certification Workshop held by “Persatuan Insinyur Indonesia” (Indonesian Engineers Association) in Jakarta. It was very awesome experience and I will tell you why.

At the beginning my motivation behind participating in this workshop was simply to get certified as professional engineer. Maybe if I get certificate, it will add value to myself. After I participated the workshop, being professional engineer is more than that. Being professional means to always work safely, to continuously improve oneself, and to contribute to the society. I am sure there are more than that, but those three points are what I remembered.

What did I get in Lokakarya Sertifikasi Insinyur Profesional LSIP?

In this lokakarya I got explanation about:

  • Indonesian Law no 11/2014 about engineering
  • Organization structure of Persatuan Insinyur Indonesia (Indonesian Engineers Association)
  • Engineer ethics code
  • Professional engineer application form – how to fill the application

So, in order to not make it worse, I will not buy some stuffs in the future anymore. Instead of buying these things, I want to save more money or invest more to buy a house or vacation. (more…)

Job Description of Project Engineer – My Real Experience (Part 2)

Please check first part of this post to explore my experience as project engineer 😉

I remembered the night when me and my colleagues went to Senoro 5 to show mechanical completion dossiers to our project manager. We brought three dossiers to show him the example. We thought he will be a little happy to check the dossiers and conclude that we are close to ready for gas in. Unfortunately, he didn’t.

At that time, I realized something more important that dossiers. He wanted to see by his own eyes that we’re ready. And dossiers didn’t convince him.

Fortunately, in the end we managed to get all aspects ready for gas in. (more…)
