Today will be the first day that I'll be starting my new job in a new company. After four years plus of working in my previous company, it comes to me that it's time for a change because I couldn't see any more challenge in my previous role. Salary and benefits is better in this new company but it's not the main reason why I jumped ship. First, the new job role has more challenging task for me that I can ultilize more of my skills and experience in MS SQL Server and Windows Server platform. Second, I don't have to work night shift anymore, which will be a good thing on my health.
The funny thing is the office of this new company is just behind my old office before the office shifted to Cyberjaya. Yes, now I don't have to travel 100KM to and fro work. I don't have my own PC or laptop at home, all this while I was using company's laptop to post my blog. So, if you don't see any updates in this blog for a few days onward, it means either I haven't get a laptop from my new company or I will be using a desktop in the new company instead. If, it is the latter, then I might not be able to update this blog of mine for a month before I could buy a PC of my own =P
The downside of starting a new job in a new company is that I have to start from scratch again in terms of annual leaves and a 6 months probation period. I won't be able to take any annual leave during probation period. So, I might not be able to go to as many events as I like now. Oh well, I think it's a change for the better. Change is always better than not changing at all ;)
