Interview and offer

I had my interview today and was offered the job.  I told her that I would let them know tomorrow (Friday).  If I accept, it would start on Monday, not much turn around time for sure.

I guess that I will accept it, I am sort of backed into a corner.  I sort of feel like it is a giant step down though.

I don’t know why I haven’t gotten interviews to this point.  I really don’t.  I haven’t applied for jobs that I am not qualified for.

There are two schools of thought:

1 – I have heard that after a person works for the government for a certain period of time (5 years +) that other employers (private sector) will not look at them.  I don’t know if this is true or not, I am sure that in some cases it is.  Government employees, for whatever reason are often considered lazy.  I have worked with my share of lazy people BUT, the majority aren’t that way.  I guess it is a hard sterotype to break.

2 – I am over qualified for the jobs and perhaps they will think either I am going to get bored and leave or perhaps I will want too much money.

I really don’t know what’s going on, but, since my money will be out in a few months, I need to do something.  I am not sure if I will be able to stay were I am currently living.  I may have to downgrade to save some money.  I’d hate to leave, I do like it here, but…  I will speak with my landlord and see if they are willing to reduce the rent – I think that is a long shot really. Oh well, I will cross that bridge in the next month or so.

Anyway, I guess I will call tomorrow and accept the position.  They did ask for a 1 year commitment and as long as they don’t want me to sign a contract I’ll be ok.  If I happen to be offered a better job in the future (near future I hope), I will have to take it.
