What do we do when our boss offers us a job?
For many, it’s a difficult choice.
They are forced to either take a new job or quit their job.
But with the rise of gig-hunting services like gig-searching.com and gig-marketing.org, many are choosing to give up their jobs and start their own.
One man in Australia is looking for a job in the IT field.
Andrew Pankow is looking to work in the telecommunications industry, but his search is about to get much more interesting.
Andrew Pankowski is a 35-year-old IT professional who is looking at starting his own company.
“I just want to be able to do my own thing.
I don’t want to work for someone else anymore,” he told BuzzFeed News.
Andrew’s search for work began when he saw the number of people searching for IT jobs online go up.
“It was kind of a shock.
It’s like, ‘Oh, my god!
How many companies have a vacancy?
And how many people are actually looking?'” he said.
“And then it was like, wow, I guess I could actually do this.
I’ve got a dream.
It just started happening.”
Andrew said he has been looking for work since he was 15 and has been employed at the same company since.
“That was like the beginning.
I’m like, well, I need a job right now.
But then I’ve been working for them for like two years and I’ve really grown as a person and I’m just so happy to be a part of this company.
I love it.
It was a dream come true,” he said, adding that he’s had a blast working with a team of like-minded people.
Andrew is a member of the Australian Network for the Advancement of Technology (ANAT), a group of people who have been working together to help each other find work.
“We are trying to educate the general public about how to find jobs, what to look for and how to do it, and I think that’s really important,” he explained.
“I think a lot of people don’t realise how difficult it is for people who want to get into the tech industry.
There’s a lot more work to do.”
Andrew and his team are currently working on their first gig-review, but they are also looking for additional roles to fill in the future.
“One of the things that I really want to focus on in my career is getting paid,” Andrew said.
Andrew said he’s always had a passion for IT, and he thinks he’ll be happy in his current role.
“If I can get a job that’s just as rewarding, I think I’ll be a pretty happy guy.”
