Thread: Future or Fun?

  1. #1

    Question Future or Fun?

    Got a dilemna..

    Applying for an IT Uni Graduate role at a BIG nz company, starting in 09

    Completed the phone interview stage & basically passed
    The testing stage (verbal/numeric) is later this month
    Followed by the interview stage (next month) where I would meet other previous graduates & interview for the job itself

    A relative is having a wedding overseas which'll be the final big family/relative gathering.
    The tickets are booked (my mum & I) and if I don't go, my young brother will take my spot.

    This conflicts with the recruitment process schedule for this job,
    furthermore if I stayed, the job is not even guaranteed.

    What do I do?

    Future or Fun?

    Entirely up to you. How important is the job?

    Well mate it's a good job and it's starting in 2009 so I'm not sure what I'd do because I reckon most grad jobs for 09 will have been placed / recrutied by the time i'm back

    If it's important to you, it's a no-brainer really...

    Yes, rather a silly question.

    They sound abit anal to me with the interview process, if they like you, they can wait....Life is NOT about careers....

    Go to the wedding IMHO
