I’m on the journey of becoming officially employed. I blogged recently in China about finding the right job, and I have been finding the right one for myself. Well, the answer to that is that I have found the job I am really interested in and I think I will enjoy working in the said company.
I had been in a dilemma ever since I was offered two opportunities when I was back. Both opportunities offered were very enticing and I am genuinely interested in both. I went through 4-5 rounds of interview for company A, and I took a really hard exam to score an interview session for company B. I had to choose, A or B.
Company A offers me the position I like, but the pay for that was mediocre or should I say slightly less than mediocre. Results from company B hasn’t come out yet, and I think the chances of me getting it would be 60%. Cuz I think i kinda screwed the interview up by being too cocky. In fact, I wasn’t in the right mood to deal with the interview because company A has offered me a job. All in all, i thought I could have done better lah. Anyway, I liked both companies. One is US-based, and one is local.
Actually the choice is not very tough, but I brought it upon myself by thinking too much lah. Really. So stupid. So much so that I tied myself to the ground making it very tough for myself to make decision.
It’s very easy to throw out advice to friends and people around you, but when it really happens on your, damn it, you have no idea what to do. Seriously, I caught myself off guard plenty times and I try to really force myself to do what I need to do. When I was faced with monetary problems, I was tempted to go to the one with higher remuneration. Then I ask myself if the monetary could make me happy during my stay in that job. I realize I cannot imagine myself to go to work happy but I could imagine me being really satisfied and accomplished when I thought of the one with lower pay.
I might be thinking too much, company B might not even offer me a job and probably I will just left with one choice–company A. Heh. but opportunities are for those who are well-prepared. So its still good to be mentally prepared for all kind of situations. Hohoho.
Aiya, I think I will just sign the contract for company A lah. Have a job is better than no job, and I shall review this topic of Passion over money after I work lah okay.
