Hello!

So, I'm a student and also part-time job IT teacher somewhere in a school. But my salary isn't enough to cover my fees.:kaophew:
I'm about to ask for a promotion to my boss and I was wondering, if I quit from this job, what job would be the best for me?

I can do IT tasks such as configuring a router, hardware repairing, etc.
Also, I'm specialized in Image Manipulating! :kaopride:

Thanks! :cutesmile:

This may not be the best to ask, since not too pany people are from Indonesia and therefore don't know the situation.

Have you considered working for yourself? You could repair computers, or help configure them, for a living. I know one person who does this. Computers are getting fairly common all over the world, but people don't really know how to properly maintain them, so your skills could be pretty handy. Saying that, I'm not sure how common personal computers are for the common folk in Indonesia, though.

Commoners in Indonesia uses PC as their common needs. Based on my survey, 95% Offices in Indonesia uses Personal Computers. But unfortunately, most commoners doesn't know how to properly maintain their Personal Computer. This is a chance for people like me, but the other bad news is, the population of IT specialists are getting larger nowadays.

It might be getting larger, but that doesn't mean they will all suddenly start setting up home computer repair businesses. :p It's up to you, though. It just seemed like something you have the skills for.

Maybe it's different in Indonesia, but I tried the self-employed gig fo a few years and I don't necessarily recommend it. It is extremely time-consuming, takes a lot of effort and is seldom rewarding in the beginning (first few years). It can work if you pull through these years of establishing yourself or if you have a very unique product/service that's highly in demand, but IT is not very unique and I don't see this being a satisfying part-time job for a student. I wouldn't do it, anyway, I'm betting it would eat away at all your free time and barely be worth it. Just think about all the publicity needed to get your name going around, the time needed to get to customers, etc. and then consider whatever you would be charging to make it worthwhile and whether or not that price is competitive in a highly competitive environment...

I think you're right. Most unprepared self-employers ends up on a bad ending of their life here in Indonesia. Except for those who are really patient and high-determined to success.

Well, I'll choose to become self-employer as my side job. I was promoted to IT Technician on my office few days ago. Not part-time job, it's full job. The boss gave me this promotion because he knows that I'm still a student and I have to focus more on my school. I only come to the office when I got a call from my boss. :kaojoy:

And you know what's more interesting in my job? I got my full salary even though I'm always not in place and only come when there is something wrong with the office's networking. :kaopride:

Making games for a living sounds like a great job!

In all seriousness, study business. If you are passionate about anything you can make a living from it. All it takes is knowledge of how to start and manage a business.

The second draft of my script is almost done, and I don't think I'm going to write a third draft. I'll make changes to dialogue here and there, but I'm happy with the series of events the way they are.


Guess what's next...
How you feel about font and dialogue box changing for every main character while the minor cast and regular npc get their own styles? Too much?
Just found an obviously custom effect (i.e. edited by me) in my resources>sounds folder called "rip jaw off". Dear Lord what is wrong with me as a person that at some point I needed a sound *specifically* for THAT??
(...rhetorical question.)
so like with the whole 'familiarity breeds contempt thingy', how are you supposed to tell if your title screen/battle music gets really tedious after a few dozen plays or if you're just personally hella sick of it?
