As you may have noticed, I tend to dish out advice whether it’s been sought or not …
Yes, Sonal, we’ve noticed.
Well here I am, in a city without friends to bounce chit chat off, mulling through the aftermath of two interviews today.
Interview 1: Good event coordinating job. Lots of autonomy, starts in a couple of weeks, basically using the skills I have, not building on them terribly much but a chance to create a manual on how to do them. Quite a bit of stuff I’ve done before. They’re checking my references … I think I’m at the top of the list … have to give an answer by Monday.
Interview 2: Tech job. Starts in a little over a month, for a shorter period, so therefore pays quite a bit less at the end of the day. But, opportunity to really boost skill set which may make me more valuable later as a tech (especially as a touring tech, and I do want to work other festivals). Looking at me for two roles … won’t hear about it until middle of next week.
I think I’ve just answered my own question, but I would need to find work in the interim to make up for the late start time (and I don’t know how easy that will be compared to my experience in London), whereas I wouldn’t have to worry about that with number 1.
What to do?
