So, I’m in the middle of searching for a “real” job right now. Working at Applebee’s as their favorite hostess helps to keep me busy and brings in some money, but I moved here to work with at-risk teens. There aren’t many of those at Applebee’s, although my coworkers definitely have their issues (don’t we all?).
I have sent out only a dozen resumes, and have kind of burnt out the last two weeks. There is a place I want to work for, but I haven’t heard back from them yet (and yes, I followed-up). Then there is the place who offered me a job….I should probably pursue that a little more. However, the administrator made it very clear that working there would not be the place for me. Then there’s….the third place. A place where I could probably get a job if I chased after it. After visiting the program though, I’m not so sure that it is a program I can support.
Here is where YOU come in. Please leave me a comment and let me know what your opinion is. Should I accept a job because it’s a job, and some experience, or should I hold out for something that I can support and be happy doing, even if that doesn’t come along quickly?
