Hi, dwihastomo. Glad to know that you've been given such a good opportunity. However, I still don't think quitting college is a not a good idea. You know, that would be a big problem for your future for that you know have a diploma of university. And I want to remind your hard working when preparing for college entry exam. That'd mean nothing if you quit. You could find better job opportunities after graduation, OK?

An unbiased suggestion, seeing ur age your 1st aim should be going to college.. Bcoz,, answer is.....(Situation applies to all) If time to something cretative starts at the age of 20 for all humans,and it ends approximatly at age of 70. If u live ideally like that ,then u have 50 years = 100% of creative life i.e. to do smthg like earning name,fame. Seeing that u have spent only 4% of ur creative life,,,thus , you are lucky that still 96% of life to do creative is there. Then why worrying for job,when its ur time to do good in studies. Dont suffer at cost of your health. U still have 96% creative life time,,plenty,plenty..........opportunities will fall at your steps ,if u are a good student. May God Bless u.

Hello dwihastomo I had been in the same situation when I was in college, but I worked in office as a full timer worker but i already told my office that I'm still in college, so they really understand that i need to go to college to study, and after finished my class i go back to the office. so i can get both of them in the same time. Maybe you should tell your company and explain the reason. I think if they really need you they will understand the situation. Almost all my friend did that, and their company are really understanding about that. Good luck

Just a little FYI, you can do both! I'm 22 years old too and I work full time during the day and I take night classes at night. This past semester I took four classes, one of them being online and in the fall I will be taking four classes PLUS an online class. It can be done, you just have to manage your time very carefully. You should see if your college offers online classes, or see what classes are avaiable when you aren't at work. I think you should definitely continue with your college education if you feel that it is helping you. For some people college isn't the answer, but if its something you think will help you in the future and you don't think that this current full time job you got offered could be your life long career and make you happy, why settle??? Good luck with your decision!
