Tomorrow I have an interview with a Large Financial Firm for a full-time document production position. It's normal Monday-Friday daytime hours. I've already done a phone interview, and I'm reasonably certain I'll get an offer. The question is, do I want the job?
I don't think leaving Really Crappy Firm after only 3 weeks on the job will reflect badly on me, but doing that twice in a row would not be good. Even if I don't put these jobs on my resume, the Toronto corporate legal world is pretty small, the HR managers all know each other, and I can't make a habit of taking jobs and leaving. LFF would presumably be outside that loop, so if a weekend spot came up somewhere else, I would just leave.
What happens if I don't take the job:
Of course those are not guaranteed salaries. Freelance work is always variable and less secure.
So. Money and security, now, with the end of freedom, relaxation and writing time? Or very tight finances, with more time and freedom?
One moment the choice seems clear: if I'm offered the job, I must take it. The next moment it seems equally clear in the other direction.
