For those who don't know, i went for an interview last week (shii~~ Don't tell my manager!). It is a software house provider company which is located at PJ, opposite PJ Hilton. I arranged it to be on Wednesday ( 2 days after the working agendy called me for a phone interview), as i need time to prepare myself before confront the interviewer.
I need to pack my certificates, i need to photostate them, i need to update my resume, i need to prepare myself with Q&A for interviews, i need to pick the appropriate attire for the interview, i need to practice answering questions in front of mirro, i need to get to know the road to the company (so i won't be late or get lost), i need to do alooooooooooooot of things.....
*Fast Forward* 2 days later........
The representative from the working agency called me to update me about the interview conducted last 2 days.
Philip : "Hi, Elaine. So how was the interview?"
Elaine : "Hmmmm, good but not the best. They (the company) was not satisfy with my technical background, my long notice period and my high expectation"
Philip : "Oh, that's what they told me also. But however, they are willing to offer you this job provided.........."
Elaine : "Provided with what?"
Philip : "Hmmmm, they are offering you RM400 below your expectation upon hiring, but to increase to your expectated amount after probation period (around 6 months), and they can't wait that long to get you hired"
Elaine : "Hmmmmm, i need to consider that, as it was lower than my current salary".
The conversation ended, with the request from me to ask him to negotiate the salary and i will figure a way on my notice period. But i know, there is no other way, other than me to compensate Spansion for 1 month, which i think it's not reasonable.
I'm considering, and still considering. Considering whether to choose:
Option 1: To accept their offer, to resign from Spansion, and to compensate Spansion for leaving earlier.
Option 2: To reject the offer, continue working at Spansion till it goes bancrupt.
Option 3: To reject the offer, to resign from Spansion, and start looking for another job after resignation (this will shorten my notice period to my new company)
Option 4: To reject the offer, continue working at Spansion, continue looking for jobs, and resign once other company confirm to hire me (and willing to wait me for 2 months)
I know i'm capable to outstand during interview, but with my current technical background (half-tong-water), it's quite to convince the employer to pay higher.
I know i can easily find a work if i resign now, provided not being picky about enviroment, salary, location, allowances, etc etc.
But............too many but...and it's hard for me to decide...What do you think?? Maybe you are the angel, who can light up the light bulb on top of my head!
