So I quit my job in June for personal reasons and I haven’t been able to get a job since. With the job seeking process, I came to realize that I wasn’t particularly fond of my career choice (which is what i earned a degree in with college). Working in a cubicle, behind a computer all day wasn’t for me. I really enjoy working with animals, being outdoors, and I would love to move out west so I started to apply for jobs at quest ranches. However, I never heard from any that I applied. After 8 months of unemployment I received a job offer for an office position. It dosent pay well but I am grateful for it because it is a job and I can finally move to a better house. I also decided to go back to school this summer to get my associates degree in something that peaked my interest but it is a career that would mean working in an office again. I still dreamed of working with horses but I realized that it wasn’t going to happen so I need a plan b. However, yesterday I received a call from a ranch offering me a position from April until December. This ranch also happens to be my top choice in places I want to work.
I need some advice. Should I take the dream job at the ranch even though it is only temp and I would have to start at square one with no job or extra schooling when I returned home in December? Or should I work in the low paying office job and go to school because I already wasted a lot of time looking for a job but I would be giving up on an exciting opportunity of a lifetime?
