Be Careful What You Wish For

Sometimes we should be careful on what we wish for. Yeah, I am now trapping in this situation. Last year, I consulted my counselor and said to him about my interest on out-of-town or overseas project. My assignment always in the Jakarta since joined this company and client near the head-quarter. On the other hand, friends from my batch have opportunity to involve in out-of-town project or be assigned to the client which is far from the head-quarter. Different traffic jam, different allowance.
I am now a SAP-BASIS consultant. If you ask me about my position, whether I like it so I won’t hesitate answering your question “NO”. I never want to be a technical consultant and I know my capability and what I can do. I prefer involve in the project where I can understand the client’s business process and how to make the best decision to improve their production, their performance and reduce the production cost. That the reason why I love so much my last project. It was a strategic-related project. My client wanted to find the potential distributor for their product in Indonesia, distributor who know how to import a short-age product and have experience in its distribution. It was not an easy task but I love it so much although I did not get allowance.
That project also inspired me to pursue my master degree in Industrial Management and I plan to take it next year through Erasmus-Mundus’ program. But I have to prepare all the required documents such as TOEFL and GMAT certificate. And it is the big problem for me now because I just received confirmation from my HR representative that I will be assigned in Kuala Lumpur for 7 months (July 2009 – January 2010).
Arrrgh, this is suck. How can I prepare my TOEFL and GMAT certification if I be there? Maybe you will say, I can prepare myself there but GMAT is something new for me and I plan to take the course before I ready for the certification and I have to take the both certification this year because the application deadline for the reception of application is on January 2010.
What should I do? Should I reject the assignment? Or should I wait 1 more year to apply the master degree. Please show me the way out.

Whatever we gathered information from the blogs, we should implement that in practically then only we can understand that exact thing clearly, but it’s no need to do it, because you have explained the concepts very well.
