I start a full time job one week from today. That much is certain, however there are two possibilities.
A: First choice of employers, who didn't call me back right away, so I thought were not interested.
B: Second choce, who hired me they day I showed up.
Well, "A" surprised me yesterday. They are interested after all. Much pickier employer, they actually called around for refrences to see what kind of person I am.
Choice "A" actually sets me off in a new career field with plenty of upward mobility options, and isn't so bad even at entry level.
Default choice "B" isn't really a career job, just income. In reality it probably has even better chances to advance. its really a Miltonian question.
Choice "B" does not conflict with my single 8 hour a day shift in a vet clinic, so I would be maintaining that and working three jobs, one full and two part.
Choice "A" does conflict, but the higher pay rate makes up the loss. I would probably still be able to help out for about 4 hours during the businest part of the day. Consequently either way I will make roughly the same money.
Interesting week coming up
