When I told my dad that I was being lay off and asked him for his help, he responded by asking his friends on a job lookout for me. My dad is a medical profession.
Arrangement was made and I called up to arrange for an interview. The interview was held at a prestigious hospital in Penang.
I will be stationed to receive patients' admissions, cash payments and cheques. My job run on shifts and allowances will be given. Triple pay I will receive if my shift falls on a major public holiday.
And it's only 3 minutes drive from my apartment. I was offered the job verbally.
However, my basic salary they are offering will be 35% lower of what I'm getting now. The HR have not make final confirmation on the actual amount yet.
I'm also entitled to 2 pairs of uniforms and subsidised meal, which means I can saved a lot here.
What do you think,
1) Should I take up this job?
2) Or keep on waiting for another?
3) What happens if this will be the only opportunity I have?
Ps.I'm in my mid-30s now, the job market does not really welcome me anymore.
