Work: Job Offers

October 22nd, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Wow. Even though I’m currently in full time employment (and actually just had a pay rise), I’ve had a number of job offers in the last 5 days. £20,000, £24,000 and the last one is £26,000 (oh, and there was also the “1 week contract for £1,000” telephone call). People want me and it’s nice to feel wanted 😉

However, I like it in my current position: it’s near to home (around 30 minutes walk – others are in London and Kent: if one was in Leicester or in a certain town in the South West I might have to think about it), the staff are nice (even my new biatch – don’t ask, but I’m sure a couple of lurkers here know what I mean by that 😉 ), and it’s doing what I enjoy. Of course, the job offers are relate to what I enjoy doing AND are much more money (nearly double what I’m currently on) but.. but…

I’m sticking where I am for the time being (although my boss does know in around 6 years I’ll be looking for another job OR if I make several millions a month from self-employment), but I can’t deny the offers are very tempted. I just want to know why in 6 months unemployment I didn’t receive a single offer from these companies *grr*.

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
