One uncertain leap

I’m in dilemma, so as the title of this entry. Just a while ago the CLID display of my office phone showing a random number. I picked up the phone, and the person greet me so friendly like she’s been knowing me for so long. After she introduced herself, oh yes. I remember. She used to be HR Manager in my office long time ago – 5 years back when I’m still in my old department.

I’m not quite certain of why she’s calling me after so long. It turned out that the company that she’s at now is looking for some expert in technical field, dealing with SQL servers, dealing with web application programming etc, and asking whether I have any friend to recommend.

The part when she said “I know how you work, and I really want to find someone like you, passionate with technical stuffs” make me think she’s got a hidden agenda. And finally, the truth revealed where asked whether I’m interested or not.

In this era, it’s all about money, and that’s basically what I said – if the pay is good, then I might consider. It turned out that the offer is quite good. It the matter still lingering in my head at the moment – should I make that leap, moving away from this company. Frankly speaking, things are a bit messy here at my current workplace at the moment, which I never good at writing about unpleasant things that happened in my life. I’m glad to have this perfect oppurtunity of venturing into a new world, but at the same time, I’m so afraid of leaving the comfort that I have built here for almost 7 years. But which excite you more? I’m just not sure.

    if they need you, absolutely they will give you the best offer. Maybe they will give you new opportunity. Am easy to get bored in for a long time in one place, 7 years..che im. I think, maybe this is the moment for yo to change..

    Just an opinion.

    Reading your post, I know you want to go there.

    Change is good, you know.

    But make sure the money is far better than your current job la. Tapi elok la tgk dulu advantage and disadvantage tukar kerja tu.

    i have heard of the quote. Really, but i guess u’ll just have to do what you think is best for urself. Leaving the comfort zone sometimes is good, sometimes is bad.

    but if its me.. of course i blah !! its all about the money.. yeah !! .. not really..

    erm..dari pendapat i kan…its all about self satisfaction.if pertukaran kerja ini akan membuat you rasa puas hati you just go on…soal about comfort…pada mula nya memang tak la kot jarang di tempat kerja baru ni terus comfort but its gain your is expirement..tak salah kita mencuba…dan hidup juga satu perjudian..itu lah risikonya…so kenalah pandai timbang menimbang..:) make sure you have a right choice and no regret with your decision.
