Suesser Tod Posted February 8, 2007 Share Posted February 8, 2007 Well, job hunt may end up taking me to a different state. Basically I had an interview for a job, where many people from my old job has moved to, and today I'll have the second interview. I know it is highly probable that I'll get the job, as I have more or less the same profile of the other people that has been hired there, as we used to work together. At this point, obviously, I'm not sure if I'll get the job, but I have already started to give it some thought. The main thing is, it is on a different state. Driving it is 5 hours away, airplane is like an hour or so. What worries me? Well, it is a different state, where I know no one, away from my family, and also, away from my significant other. She is in the university, and she is still two semesters away from graduating. And, more important, I don't know if she would be willing to move to a different state with me, as we don't live together and we've been together only for 10 months. I'm in love with her, and it terrifies me to lose her. But I also know that at the end of the day, I've only got myself, so I shouldn't stop looking out for myself. So, in the worse scenario, I end up losing her, and also I would be away from my family. In the best scenario, We would have to keep a LDR until next year (if she agrees to move to the other state) and I would be away from my family. I guess there are shades of gray, but I don't want to think about them all right now. This job would be really close to what I used to do in my old job, which I really liked a lot, and would also give me chances to move to a different country if I play my cards rigth, so if I get it, it would be a big oportunity. What would you do? Do you think it would be adviseable to keep going with this oportunity? Or would you stop and look for something else? I can't help but think I'm a dork for thinking about this while I don't even know if I got the job Quote Link to comment
