Nuffnang Orientation

Nuffnang has been hiring quite a number of people lately... not because we're rich but because we've been growing too fast there's too much for us to do.

Since we launched, our team has more than doubled in size... and that's not even including the dudes at Singapore!

Now at Nuffnang... we hire interns too!!!

And the intern we have with us now is.....

MEET LANCE


Now here's what happens when someone joins us.

Step 1: Made to sit right next to a more senior Nuffnang team member.

Step 2: Non-Disclosure Agreement

This is where the new Nuffnanger signs a document that says that he will not divulge any of the secrets he learns at Nuffnang or we'll cut off his ballz and hang it outside our window sue.
Step 3: Forced Feed Cheezels

At Nuffnang... YOU MUST LOVE CHEEZELS.

Just like KFC now says "We must have rice".. at Nuffnang, WE MUST HAVE CHEEZELS.

When I first asked Lance to eat a packet of Cheezels to officiate the joining of Nuffnang, he said "But I prefer Twisties".

I slapped him and screamed
"BLASPHEMY!!!"

He gave in and ate away.

Step 4: NUFFNANG LUNCH!!!

We have a welcome lunch at Food Loft Gurney Plaza Penang, one of our advertisers at Nuffnang.

We joke, we talk cock talk about world affairs, eat and drink all under company expense.



This is part where Lance started taking awful pictures of me with rather weird facial expressions.


Of course, feeding a small but growing company is not cheap, so the bill turned out to be over RM227.60 for lunch.

Nuffnang Singapore's company lunches are a lot more expensive... as you can imagine.. in SING DOLLAR.

STEP 5: MPH BOOKSHOP

Visiting another one of our advertisers, everyone goes to MPH to pick up books on programming, marketing or anything that could help them learn the job better. All on company's expense again.
And there you go everyone.

Those are the 5 steps you have to go through while starting work with Nuffnang.

Oh and I almost forgot to mention... the 6th... to start a blog.

ALL NUFFNANG TEAM MEMBERS must have blogs. It doesn't matter if they get a lot of traffic or not, they must still blog.

Lance coincidentally already was a blogger before he joined.

He now blogs about his internship experience at Nuffnang (*ahem* during working hours).

Lance.. go get me coffee when you read this. Two sugars, no milk. And grab me a packet of cheezels while you're at it.
