Just remember, aim for a career and not only a job
We can start as an officer but if we keep learning, keep improving and continue to do very well, we will start to climb the corporate ladder and one day may become one of the senior managers in the organisation. The yearly salaries are pretty good yeah. If I earn RM15,000 per month and I DO NOT SIMPLY SPEND MY MONEY, I actually do not need to work a second job. A decent Segment C car, a landed home slightly further away is a certainty too.
A typical senior finance manager? Salary info by jobstreet.com.my below. By the way, positions in online / internet related businesses may just be higher too.
However, if our attitude at work is to treat it like a job; to do just enough, refuse to take up higher responsibilities, to stop learning and yet hoping for ever higher salaries, then it will be just a job. When it is just a job, then anyone out there (including out of Malaysia) who could do the same job for lesser pay will get the job instead. This is the world we live in today.
By the way, there is no such thing as the best way. If working at two jobs or three jobs is considered a better choice, by all means go for it. One man’s meat is another’s poison. Everyone should be happy with their own choices in life. Happy understanding and doing something about it.
