Just writing this post tells me that I’m getting way too old…
Anyhow, I graduate from the University of Waterloo around April/May, and had a vague idea that I should probably get a job sometime after that. Although I do rather like doing the internship thing, starting with a predefined end date, however I think that six months would be more useful than the four-month ones that my school uses.
“Unfortunately” I’ll be getting a really good job offer soon with much less time to accept or reject it than I would like. Which means that I may have to decide on all this quite soon, and thus I need to be looking at other options right now as well. Overall I would prefer to work in Toronto or Kitchener-Waterloo, but if anyone has any job opportunities or ideas they think I should consider (at any location), then please let me know by email. I’m interested in hearing all sorts of different ideas (from full-time to part-time, volunteer, etc.), and even if I don’t take you up on them, we can have a good chat 🙂
Why would you want to work in Dumpsville aka Kitchener-Waterloo? Toronto is okay if you love commuting. Then again, anything is better than Microsoft. That is, unless you enjoy making the rest of the world suffer.
Oops.. I meant to say “The United States” instead of Microsoft.
You’re young enough that if you take a full time job and you don’t like it there’s always time to move around and keep looking.
oh by the way i see your family moved, or your house is being occupied by a young asian family. i was confused.
I replied to you via facebook
Don’t let a company bully you around with a decision date. You can always stall that by telling them you aren’t sure yet… or it’s not enough money… or responsibility and ask them if they can work on the offer.
yep, you’re definitely right. the HR people are good at their jobs 😉
