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.
