It is right to think of your future career. I also have many friends who are preparing for 2015. They always tell me ‘we gotta get ready for 2105 year’. Yes. On that year, many business companies from around the world will enter Myanmar and will create many
opportunities for Myanmar to grow up. So what I see is that they are spending too much time in their education. They work for week day and study in weekend is fine. But some attend classes in morning or early evening time of week days making them to sacrifice their working hour a bit to spare for attending classes.
Then what I see is that their career level didn’t get promoted in the period. As they couldn’t use their energy for job fully, their performance went down. Some companies even don’t want such kind of employee in the company and replace with other free employee with no classes. A foreign business owner said that many Myanmar people don’t know that the company is the best for them learning. They always think getting certificates and papers from university and education centers is real education. Working experience is very important today. Like every know is that experience is the best teacher. I don’t mean you not to attend class. I just mean you not to spare your work hours with learning in centers. You can attend classes in weekend. Then my friends asked me ‘are you not making ready for future?’ I answered yes and tell them my way that I am learning from job and experience. I attend other classes in weekend too.
To prepare for the future, doing the best for present time is the best way. You sometimes don’t need to think too much about the future and get worry for it. Do the best now in your career!
