I have a question regarding career and business. I have two options: I either try to make a career at a multinational as a Software Engineer and grow from there to a Softwarearchitec / IT Consultant. I will be able to develop my knowledge (get lot’s of IT trainings, courses, certificates) and lot’s of different skills and I will have challenging projects. I will work about 50-60 hours a week.
The second option is to work for a Small and medium enterprises (or government) as a Software- or Network Engineer. Since budget is tight I have less opportunity to develop my knowledge (lower paced) and skills and will have projects that are sometimes challenging but mostly it will just be okay. I will work about 40-45 hours a week.
Next to that I’m starting up my own business in real estate. I’ll be studying for broker in the evenings and I’ll work as a broker for a brokerage a few hours in the weekends. After I did that for a while I’ll be able to get a loan (from my job as a Software-/Network Engineer) and I’m going to fix up houses in the evenings and weekends and rent them.
What are your thoughts about making a career at a multinational vs working at a SME and have an own business in real estate?
