Starcomms Just Offered Me A Better-Paying Job. Should I?

To Be Or Not To Be? Hi yall,

I live and work in Lagos. I currently work with one of the biggest Ad agencies.

One of my Ex-clients (Starcomms) just offered me a job that would pay me over 1 Million more than my current job. I don't know bout the company's welfare & other staff related policies, so making a decision is kind of tight, especially when my current employer is not so bad.

Does anyone know about this company? Advice me please.

Starcomms is not a place anyone with option would work. unless you were in a terrible job or without a job at all. By the way, what position were you offered there that will make starcomms pay you anything more than one million per annum. Starcomms is the only telecom company where graduates are being payed N35,000. I know two peoples currently working with them. One of them a guy was into private business before he got the job. As am speaking to you , he has resigned and gone back to manage his business which is going down at his absence. Their pay is terrible and his business pays better. Look before you leap.

I still wonder how somepeople see life. Why do u want to move, for cash or career advancement, if it's Money, Boy you have the whole world at your feet, move on , if it's career wise, you may have to consider your present job and the challeges in the new job, These you should have known/ask on the process of interview. But mind you 6 yrs exeperience in the same job and the same company is regarded as one yr experience by pschologist/hr. It's always good to move ahead, even if starcooms doesn't suite you at the end, try spending at least 6 months and look for another job, it will be in your CV that have a telecoom Experience, Open your Eyes boy, Those who are scared of making mistake/ taking Risk doesn't grow in Life. I had that same problem 6 months ago, i took up the decision of moving , Though i didn't get all expected , but i am working hard to exploit all the opportunities in my the company to my advantage , then i will move ahead. Life is what you make out of it.

Only you are in the position to make the best judgment call. Seek God in prayer, ask employees about the company before joining this company. Goodluck.

As for me, I believe you should take this job. It's a level higher than where you are presently, and definitely when you move again, you'll keep rising. Everybody is looking for continous promotion in every aspect of life so I would advise you to try this new place. When you get there and do not like it, you continue working while looking for a better place out there. By that time, you'll have more experience to boost your c.v and better negotiating terms. You are not going to stay there forever, are you? Pls don't miss the opportunity, and keep praying about every decision you make. Wish you all the very best.

Why not try evaluate the too job, that is your present job and the new offer. Remember you have a carrier to protect and to build, never you consolidate on the close relationship you have with your present boss, though that could be a point (cordial relationship) with your boss. you can still cultivate same with your new boss to be. contact starcom human resources unit i think they will give you necessary explanation. I stay in Port Harcourt, with what i have heard about they aren't as good as other communication service provides such as mtn, vmobile and Glo. This you can observe from the kind van they use for advertisement here in Port Harcourt, the van is right off.

For me-

take the offer to enable you save enough for your own esterblishment.

Think of being your own master you must not work for another till you retire.

That is my own focus and dream.

Schedule an appointment with the HR and ask all the things you need to know.

before u take the job or any job for that matter, it is ur right to ask question especially when it comes to welfare, benefits, and pay. so my advise to u it this schedule an appointment to speak with HR officer at starcomm and ask all these questions cos if u dont nobody would ask for u neither would starcomm tell u wat u should know.

Kt,

Do you believe in God? did you pray about changing your current job before starcom offer? if yes consider your prayer answered if No rely on your own intuition. A yoruba man will say "Alatise lo matise ara e" you have seen and experience all with your former employer so you are the best man to know the best time to call it quit or you want to stay because you consider them "not too bad". YOUR FUTURE IS THE ULTIMATE.

Good Luck.
