I’ve applied for grad jobs and have two offers. One is confirmed offer in private IT consultiing/auditing; the other is a *wink wink we’re offering but can’t say til we sign the paperwork* offer in the public sector, doing IT auditing.
I had a meeting with the manager of the private company and it lasted 2 hours! Before the meeting I was definitely leaning towards public (reasonably secure here in Aus) but now I’m not sure. He said they are interested in me because of my techy background (Masters in Computing) – they have enough business oriented people nd are looking to expand their IT section
I’m undecided on which offer to take. Here’s a quick and dirty comparison:
PRIVATE – PUBLIC
$X + 9% super – $X+7 + 15% super
Tailored to me – one of 10 grads
Everyone seems really happy – public service, seem ok but not ecstatic
Pay starts off worse but shoots up after a few years – pay starts better, but grows a lot slower
More experience, different clients – gov’t clients, reasonably limited experience.
Small office (roughly 20 in my city) but global company – large office (200ish) but just gov’t.
If there are any other factors you’d like to know, ask 🙂 if I can tell you I will. I’m just not sure what’s best for me right now
