To job hunt or not to job hunt; that is the question.
This would be a second job, not to replace. I want to make sure that’s clear, oh bosses who have access to this blog. =P
Right now I’m down to 3 days a week at work. We were barely able to make ends meet at 4 days a week. I don’t know how this is going to work out.
On the one hand, if the pattern holds, hours will be picking up very soon. Easter is in a week, holding hands with spring break. Then comes prom, followed by graduation. Next comes summer vacations followed by the holiday season. Things won’t stay as slow as they’ve been.
I also have to keep in mind that in a few months I’m going to be going to school part-time and that is really going to add to my work load.
On the other hand, we need money now, not just later. Also, no matter how many hours I do or do not dedicate to school, it will not increase my income right now.
I don’t really want to job hunt. It’s not that I would mind a second job, I just don’t want to go to all the work just to turn around and have to quit a month later. Seems pointless and looks bad on my part. Specially since hours are potentially picking up within a week or two.
So I think I’ve talked myself out of job hunting.
There is always the option of replacing my job but I don’t really see the point to that. I like, mostly, where I’m at. I’m in management. Why walk away from that just to start at the bottom elsewhere? I’d still be stuck in retail. I’m not really qualified for anything else. I also have the worlds most understanding bosses, why would I give that up willingly?
I think I just need to enjoy the extra time with my family, count my pennies and chill out till hours pick up. Sound like a plan to you?
