To Apply or Not to Apply?
So, I have the opportunity to apply up. It would be moving into the office side of things. Balancing numbers, accounts, that sort of thing. Traditionally, I'm not an office type... at all. (I was 18 when I wrote that, though). Last night I promised myself I'd write a list of pros and cons in the morning. The morning is here (and gone), so in the interest of being a little more personal on my blog (and really hoping for a little feedback) I'll post it here.
Full time hours.
Variation in work (would mix with my current position).
Not very experienced.
Commitment (I like the fact that I can justifiably give notice anytime).
Would probably end up hating office work.
Those are far less exhaustive lists then I thought they'd be. Bear in mind that just because I choose to apply does not mean I'll get the job. Another reason to just give it a shot? The two last cons are the biggest ones, for me.
My sister says I too often do things because I think I should. Rather then because I'm interested. Or because I have a drive to book up my time. I'm an odd sort of workaholic. It has been refreshing to work fewer and better hours then I used to. And for non-stressful management. Although, the hours would still be good.
I'm just rambling now. Your thoughts, please?
