Second Job

By | September 9, 2005

I now have a second job on top of my current full-time position. My friend referred me to his company, a start-up financial firm and I had an interview with his bosses two weeks ago. I basically told them about my interest in finance and how I’ve been reading financial/business magazines and they seem to really like my interview, plus I have a technology background and experience.

I just started working today after I got off my full-time job. I’m doing market research and gathering information about companies. I can’t talk too much about it, because a lot of the information is confidential. The work seems to be interesting and the things I do are financial related, which is the field I wanted to get into.

I have so many things going on right now. I have a full-time job during the day, a part-time job at night/weekends, and a real estate investment property in the works. Plus, I have to take out time to help out my dad with his business, and he’s in the middle of a big project. I still have to keep an eye on my stocks, catch up on my magazines, and among a dozen other things in my personal life.

My part-time job can potentially become full-time. If that succeeds, then I wouldn’t have to juggle between two companies. However, that is still up in the air. There are a lot of possibilities. We’ll see how it goes.

It looks like I will be working long hours and sacrificing night and weekends. I hope this all this work and investment will do me well over time.

    Sounds like good news and bad news. I know what it’s like trying to fit extra hours into each day for optional things like sleep, friends and girlfriend. That job you described should be just interesting enough to keep you going. Keep blogging…
