Would you sacrifice your future earnings for a few extra dollars today?
Here's a story:
My client had recently moved from an SME to an MNC.
She successfully made a career change to an emerging industry.
In a more valuable role with future prospects.
And, she had recently passed her probation.
Here's the thing:
She is worried that she will not adapt to the MNC working environment.
And, she is thinking of moving back to her comfort zone - the SME.
While she is hoping to negotiate, she knows that SMEs are frugal.
Here's something to consider:
Which do you think will have a bigger budget? MNC or SME?
Which do you think will bring more opportunities? MNC or SME?
Which do you think will attract HR/Hiring Managers? MNC or SME?
Don't let your fear of the "MNC environment" stop you.
Instead, learn how to adapt to the company structure, culture and people.
The real "corporate world", as many would say.
Don't lose sight of the big picture.
Your career goal - climbing the career ladder or earning a higher salary.
Many of my course clients/students have successfully changed careers.
From Startup to MNC.
From SME to MNC.
From GLC to MNC.
From NGO to MNC.
You can do it too.
So Mei, what did you learn from this story?
