When I first took a look at the forum topics, I though if I was even going to post something here, it was going to be years down the line. Of course, life knows when to surprise us. In Bulgaria, adolescents who have turned 16 have the option to work legally. And I think it's time I get some work experience. A friend of mine worked at the museum of aviation near the airport the last year. They have a deficit of personnel and need young, energetic, responsible, knowledgeable people. And this is where I enter the story. Today I was at my first job interview. I went to the museum (which is an outside exhibition), talked with one of the main guys there, he gave me a short tour, we asked each other questions. I have to accept or decline the job until the end of the week. The job involves both being a guide in the museum, as well giving a bit of information about the city's landmarks. The salary is ~500 Leva (the minimal wage per month), a bit more than 315 USD. It's done in shifts - 9 to 13 and 13 to 21. It's not necessary that I work there the whole summer, I can also do it for a single month for example. I currently don't have any other options, but it's not too late to look for something else. (but I still have to decide for this one by the end of the week) It's not necessary that I work at all this summer, there isn't a money problem, is more the experience that interests me. Pros: - the money is good enough for me; - the job will involve a lot of communication with people, which is a great challenge for a stay-at-home guy like me; - I have a good friend there, who will help me get into everything fast. Cons: - I have to commute 30 minutes from my home to the museum; - I sweat when it's 10 C, working outside during the hottest days, especially during the 2nd shift seems like experiencing Hell™ light edition for me; - the main language of communication will be Russian, and to make sure I won't be making fun of myself, I will need to focus really hard on the language in the next two months - something that will require a lot of time, potentially enrolling on a "intensive" course, which will be stressful; - my small social life will likely cease to exist while working there, as I also want to keep on working out hard, study for a C2 certificate in English later this year and some other stuff. Give me your thoughts.
