So for the past two years, I have been working part time for a company whilst at college and now I’m about to enter my last year which could govern me signing a full time contract or leaving. As currently there is no contract ( more like an paid internship ) I am not bound to return come, summer next year.
This year whilst I was at college full time, the company I work for, call them ‘ Company A’ rented out the second floor of their two story building due to a reduction in workforce. When I returned this year July, there is a company who also do similar work to ‘Company A’. Technically, in education terms I am overqualified for company A, but the tenants of the second floor ( Company B) on paper I would be better suited and in the long term would be a more rewarding career.
Here the dilemma starts, as I was in the shared kitchen, I strike a conversation with the boss of company B and we begin conversing, I explained that I’m a student and just preforming an internship for experience. To cut the story short at the end he gives me his card and requests my CV. I was debating not doing it as at the moment I am employed by company A till October. But anyway in my free time I did. And now company B has offered me a position upon me qualifying. Company A has also offered me a position.
I know the people at Company A well and I feel like I am bound in more of a respectful way to the boss of A, but company B has also taken interest to me. I do not want this situation to cause animosity between the companies by my current boss having issues with the tenants (company B) ‘taking employees’.
Work for company A and possibly feel regret due to the over qualification yet, progress quicker.
Work for company B but possibly loose a good working relationship with company A.
Or leave both and search elsewhere.
What other options are available?
