I have started my new job for about slightly more than six months now. It has been a very fruitful experience in the sense that I am given a lot of time to learn technical knowledge to build up my competence at work. However, the downside is that I don’t always seem to enjoy what I do. There are times, more often than not, that I wonder if I had made the right career choice in joining this firm. They have taken on so many people at my level that there does not seem to be enough work to be shared among us. We have to be so competitive in maintaining a profile in the office to continue getting work from the partners and senior.When I was deciding whether to join this firm. I had another offer from a less prolific firm but probably a more cosy and friendly place to take my career further. I declined it because I thought the training would not be as good. Which is probably a very valid reason. In the past few weeks, I have been questioning myself whether I should resign and go back to that firm to take that offer. The partner told me that I could go back anytime if that position is still vacant. But of course I never have the courage to call and it is probably a little rich of me to ask, or so I think.I received a call from my ex-agent out of the blue today just for a chat and find out how I am doing. He also indicated that the firm is still looking and had not found any suitable candidates. Is it a hint from God? Or am I reading too much into this? When I took on a job previously in a highly stressful environment, I struggled with adapting to the culture too. But I hang in there and had actually benefit from the experience. I am not sure if I just need a bit more time to settle in. Is six months long enough to decide? I don’t know. But I definitely have not the courage to pull the alarm now.
