This job sounds great

My special friends roommate was talking about me to somebody at his speech club who asked for my resume, and then passed along the job info below for a position that just opened today. It sounds like a challenging, enjoyable, smart job that makes way more money than my current employment.  I could probably still file and collate papers occasionally, too.

Alas, alack, I committed to staying at my less-desirable current job until the fall at minimum. It has been suggested that I interview “just to see”, although what would I do if offered the position? Turn it down? Maybe I could apply for practice. One day I will need to interview for something a little harder and practice might be valuable.

    That does sound kind of fun… lots of number crunching though – statistical analysis. How and who did you committ to fall with your current job? You know, promises are made to be broken… and they certainly can’t fault you for being offered a better job.

    yeah my thoughts exactly, commit how and why, how does that matter at all to anybody really, it wasn’t like a vow to your current place? and how in 5-10-20 yrs would the second job be for you? as opposed to the current one, or a third job

    sure, interview anyhow, it might be delightful (or not) and then you’ll know
    your mom 🙂
