Hey guys, I just graduated with an offer from Goldman in theira 1st Year Analyst.
However for the 4 years while I was in college, I ran a (fairly) successful IT consulting company, that made $first year, $35k second year, and $40k third year.
Now here's the thing: I have gotten to the point where I have so many designs and code stockpiled up that a $5k project literally takes 1 week to do (but the client doesn't know that). I never had to work late nights and there were times where I finished projects while taking a dump with my laptop in the bathroom - and those were all $3k-7k projects. I'm not trying to sound braggish but I've just done so many that it's second nature to me now and it's not stressful at all or take up too much of my time.
I've always had an entreprenurial nature and my end goal is to have my own company. But an offer from Goldman is no joke at all and I really should be humble and know that I have the opportunity of a lifetime to work at a place where so many people want to be at.
So what would you do? Take up Goldman or reject the offer for a web design business that could or could not pull in $40k or more (or less)? It could be YEARS before I bring the company's profits up to Goldman's salary and business isn't always consistent. Some months I have 0 clients.
what would you do?
