I have been out of work for 6 months and had been living on some of my savings and my wife's family helping us, I took some 40 interviews with tech test but failed, 41st I got the job. I had been losing jobs, again and again, nothing lasting more than a few months to 1.5 years. It has been due to the fact I was not working on in-demand tech and was left behind but I had been trying to get up to speed with new tech and falling behind due to family issues and me looking after our kids day in and day out.
One week ago I got an offer for a job which I accepted and start next week, also at the same time I got a decision about the scholarship I was told of not being offered a scholarship but today I received news that I am being offered a scholarship.
Now I want the job but I want to do the 3 months course as well being offered on scholarship.
How can I convince/tell my employer (professionally) that I have been offered a scholarship which will greatly benefit my future as well as keep the job, and how can we make it work?
