So I have 3 jobs this summer, currently. 2 up on mountain and one in town. I have a night lifty job, where i sit and watch people get off and on a gondola. I get to learn German at this job, it is awesome. I also know that it is only for summer, and not planning on doing it later on.
The other 2 jobs are IT jobs, working with Computers. Something i want to do forever. They are totally different jobs as well. One i’m a hardware tech guy, fixing pcs, basic kinda work. Stuff that any computer person could do. The job just for a job kinda work.
The other is Corporate work, servers, users rights all that sorta hardcore stuff that businesses do. Plus it is on a ski hill.
I enjoy both jobs, and at this stage happy with both. The thing is that im thinking more career orientated at the moment. Sure i get the same money at both places, so that isn’t an issue. I just don’t think that working as a local tech will get me to where i want to be in 3-4 years. I don’t want to be stuck at the bottom of the wage pile for ever. Min wage is ok, i can live. But feel like i’m unable to dream for things to do. I want to be earning so i can work hard and feel like im getting somewhere. Saving for a house, car, new Apple Macbook Pro (drool!!) (BTW that is in almost reverse order!!)
So yeah the thing is that i have told the guy in town that i will work for him during winter. The only thing being is i said that without really knowing what i wanted. It was on my trial week that i said yes. Then i thought about the work that i would be doing and am not sure now. It’s a small town and thus there is a shortage of people with the skills that i have. He basically would have no one else to work for him. So i feel like im stuck between a rock and a larger rock right now.
I’m not the kind of guy that can shaft someone, just up and leave. So i think i know what i want just afraid to do it. Decisions need to be made and thus i don’t like making the hard ones. But that is life though.
