Last Saturday I was offered by my friend to work as an IT technician; on his proposed new computer servicing company. The wage was only half of what I get from my current job, and its a very new company; business lot have not been confirmed yet.
He let me to think about it and wanted to know my decision today. I thought a lot about it; my current company have this financial problem that our wage are not fully paid; even our EPF has not been paid in months. Have to get another job that is secure enough for me, good enough to take care of my family; before all hell break loose.
But yesterday, I consulted with my uncle about this, my uncle is an IT specialist and have more experience than I am. He said that the job is not worth it, too much pain for so much work and its a very new company with no solid reputation; besides it will put a bad record in my resume and I really don’t want that to happen.
So I decided not to take the job based on several reasons:
- Its still a very new company with no solid rep, I could go down jobless in just months if there are no good reception or response.
- Wage was only half of what I get from my current job, too low for my condition now.
- I’m still not confident yet to be a full fledged technician, since I’m more to programming than technician.
- Why do you take the job if you don’t like it right? I turned down the offer, and find a better one. Sorry my friend… Its going to be a hard day; but I will make up to it, sooner or later.
and BAM! there’s a fork in the road.
