Heyyo! I’m back. But it’ll be just a short post. As the title says, Future Career.. I shall talk about the thoughts that I have about my future then.
I don’t know why, but recently I just sudden thought that I won’t be an engineer at the end of the day but instead I’ll be taking over my dad’s business. My dad started this company from scratch, all by his own years ago. It’s time for him to retire and someone needs to take over his business. However, all my siblings are girls and I’m the only boy. My sisters doesn’t wanna take over and usually it’s the man that will take over their father’s business, and that leads only me alone.
Before this I have no interest in working for his field, but after thinking and thinking, I feel it will be so stupid if my dad business end just like that because non of us wants to inherit his business, or hand it over to someone else and not by our own family, that’ll be silly. Also, working on your own is always much better than working for someone.
Therefore, after many considerations, I feel that at the end of the day, I would be the one to inherit my dad’s business and not becoming and engineer as what I’m pursue in my studies currently. I shall slowly start to learn what my dad is really doing from time to time. I told myself, during the 4 months break, I shall follow my dad to work and see the environment whenever I have time and chances, instead of wasting time, might as well I do something productive. =).
I know, you must be wondering if I have this thought, why don’t I just straight work rather than going through all the hassle in my studies as an Chemical Engineer right?
Okay, here’s the answer. Firstly I would want to have an experience being in university, life as an university student. Working is for life, everyone would go through the learning stage, starting from kindergarten, moving up to primary, then secondary, and tertiary level of education. After this period it would be working for the rest of your life. The education path that I took is the longest, pre-U I took STPM which is 2 years and now I’m older than most of my coursemates in uni because they only took 1 year in Pre-U. Next, I would want to have a degree as an achievement. At least have a degree. =). Thirdly, I wanna build up networking, socializing around. And last but not least, I don’t wana start working so early! =P.
Comes to think about it, I feel kinda sad when I think on my dad’s side before this that non of us doesn’t want to take over his business. He worked so hard for it, building this company up all on his own and we as his children doesn’t want to take over for him to retire peacefully. It’s just sad. =(.
So chances of me taking is…. 90%. =).
Alright, that’s all for now..
