I have a job situation I will have to decide on in a few months, well by December anyway. There are pros and cons on both sides and I just can’t decide what is right for me right now. If you could maybe put in your two cents I would really appreciate it! Here are the details…
My Husband and I want to start TTC in October-November.
Right now I work at a preschool as a preschool teacher of 3-4 year olds. I enjoy everyone I work with, it’s all women, about 12 wonderful ladies. I’ve been there for 2 years now so I’ve become close with quite a few of them. It’s not a horrible job but I know I won’t ever be able to move up there or make much more money. It’s also less than a mile away from my house which is very convenient to only drive a minute or two and be there, especially in the winter! If I stay there I can also have my baby there too and be able to see him/her throughout the day. I know I would have alot of support from everyone there during my pregnancy as well.
Ok, the dilemma…
My mother-in-law offered me her job. She works as a receptionist as well as an accountant/tax person, I dont’ know the exact title of her position. I have no experiece in this but her and her boss are willing to have her start training me in December right before tax season and work with her through tax season to get the hang of it. She is leaving after tax season bevause they just built a new house and are moving. After tax season I guess it gets pretty slow but the boss said I could still work full time. Part time is also available if I want to stay home more in the off season. I feel like I have a great opportunity right in front of me. It’s not an entry level position put I have the chance to learn it all from my mother-in-law, where in any other situation I wouldn’t be eligible for this position. I would be making a couple buck more and there are no bebefits but the boss will pay for continuing education. Also, if I stay there for a while I could always go and work for a different compay because I will have gotten experience. The bad thing is that it’s about a 20-30 minute on the freeway and the hours are 8-5, total rush hour. Also, I don’t want to be pregnant while driving in the winter! It’s a big risk because I may not even like it. I would be working with one other lady quite a bit older than me, I guess she isn’t much for chatting or answering quetions, and there is the boss who isn’t there very much. I’m not a very social person outside of work so I feel if I work there, there goes my support and soclal life.
What do I do Bees?!
I don’t want to lose this wonderful opportunity but I just don’t know if it’s the right time if we are trying to have a baby. My biggest fear is if I stay at the preschool I will never find a better job after 🙁 I’m just afraid to make a choice.
Please let me know what you think, anything helps!
Thank you ladies 🙂
