Simple ways to make some Quick Money in the Software Industry

I am not really happy to talk about this bitter truth about the software engineering profession.

One of my friends works in a software company for the past 2+ years. All these years his appraisals were just oK - infact very low for a employee like him. So finally he decided not to work anymore for the pea-nuts and started his job hunt. Offers started coming his way and finally he settled for one that paid nearly one and half times his current pay.

On a fine day, he informed this to his manager. Only then the manager realised how valuable my friend is. Now he is ready to pay nearly 50k/annum more than the new offer.

How sad???

Its sad because... two years of service, dedication, passion and blah.. blah.. blah.. (whatever I can say about my friend) didn't get him the recognition from his current employer. He had to get a certificate (so called offer letter) from some other third party to get what he deserved for his current work.

How come now, they are ready to pay this huge amount? Might be, this is what is called as Management steps to minimize attrition of a valuable resource.

Whatever it may be.. now my friend knew the very simple (..yet the best) way to make some quick money from his current employer

1. Just complete the minimal task, expected from him.
2. Improve the technical knowledge i,e. prepare for the job inverviews.
3. Get back with a better offer during the appraisal period.

If you knew of the word "appraisal" it would make your post more credible.

Hey – good blog, simply looking around some blogs, seems a reasonably nice platform You Are using. I’m at the moment utilizing Drupal for a few of my sites but seeking to change one of them over to a platform very a lot the identical to yours as a trial run. Something particularly you'd advocate about it?
