Becoming a CEO of any company is not an easy task. It requires capability and confidence and if I have been chosen then it must be because of my skills. So there is obviously a good reason to celebrate.
Choosing to become such an important part of any organisation should be properly decided. Critically analysing and understanding various aspects and how they affect your presence in that organisation is really important.
I got an offer from two companies and both companies require me to function as the CEO. The pay-scale and various incentives offered are also similar. But there are different points that need to be considered.
HSBC performs investment banking and other funds related functions. It’s headquarter is based in a highly classed urban area with rich and well educated people residing all around. This bank requires me to work 10 hours a day i.e. from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The staff and its functioning in the advancement of this bank are my responsibility. I have authority to delegate powers and supervise the day-to-day work in the bank. As a CEO I have to regularly participate and manage the annual general meetings and look into proper filling and payment of tax after. I have to maintain the goodwill through ascertaining the financial position of the bank every year in a fair manner.
Washington Times is a publishing company. It writes and publishes one national and 10 local newspaper. It also publishes various magazines, comic books and novels. The main branch is located in a hilly area in the lap of the nature, with all basic amenities provided. As a CEO of this company I will have to manage not only the current newspapers, magazines and books but also decide if the incoming offers for various educational books and other novels should be published or not. This company requires me to work 9 hours a day ranging from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. I will have the staff comprising of managers, editors, content writers, various artists and many more people. Deciding the quality and quantity of publication is an important task too. (“What Does It Feel Like”)
After carefully analysing the above bank and publishing company I have reached to a conclusion that I will like to work with Washington Times because I wish to become a part of a publishing house rather than a bank.
I am aware of the fact that both companies offer the same salary and post but there are numerous tasks attached to each one of them.
HSBC’s headquarter is established in a high class urban area and Washington Times headquarter is established in a hilly area. I am writer by profession and nothing is better than nature. Nature is the best place to relax and feel free to write. (“Things You Should Look For”)
HSBC requires me to work 10 hours a day whereas Washington Times requires only 9 hours of my work.
In bank I have the control over the staff and the important decisions whereas in publishing company I have limited control as the staff comprises of creative people. They all have creative skills to perform the functions.
In HSBC the work load of each day is not as much as in Washington Times.
HSBC will settle me down as a well-known CEO whereas Washington Times will bring my status to a hard-working CEO.
There are many points in favour of Washington Times and HSBC is not bad itself, but I am choosing Washington Times over HSBC. The fact being that it is my dream job.
People believe that they should educate themselves to get a good job and earn well to live a happy and luxurious life. In this rat-race of becoming a well-known and rich they forget they even had a dream. Performing a job 10 hours a day for the rest of your life in a company where you never wanted or expected to be is like a nightmare. Money is important to survive and fulfil the basic needs and so is society (“Salary Negotiation: Make More Money”). But for anyone it will be a dream come true to get a job of such stature. (“7 Undeniable Truths”)
My dream job was to become a writer or editor of a company and establish my own publishing house. I always dreamed to establish a company where fresh creative talent is welcomed. I have struggled a lot to become a writer and I know how difficult it is.
This company will fulfil all my requirements. The location is heaven on earth. To live in a green city where you feel you are a part of this nature is a much better than a place so noisy like a circus, filled with dust and smoke. (Pagan “'Five Things You Should Negotiate”)
I will be partial and it is not wrong. Every person has one life and everyone has one aim. Never leave any opportunity to get one step closer to become a satisfied individual. This job will satisfy me.
If you don’t have a dream or you stopped yourself from dreaming then it is not very late. I believe dreams never end. Just like how important is breathing to us, even our dreams our important. Dreams define who we really are. So dream higher and work hard to turn them into reality.
