So a friend of our pulled some strings at his job and got my hub a job (finally after a year of being unemployed!). It's a fast food job, but we're thankful it's a JOB! We told them we would stay for as long as DH is in school...two plus years, because well, we need a job and nothing else has panned out for us! He's only worked there a few training days....
Well today my hub got a call back on one of his applications he put in months ago.....it's a position at a hospital, one he's qualified for, in the field that he's currently going to school in. It's more pay, benifits, health insurance....all the bells and whistles.
Our dilema is do we quit the fast food job his friend got him because there's a better job offer, or do we stay because his friend got him this job, and they are anticipating him sticking around for a while?
My husband has had literally no job offers from applications in the last year, and we're on public aid all the rest, which I don't mind until we find a job......but this new job would basically take us off all of that, we see it as an awesome opportunity for our family.
What would you do? Stay loyal at a job a friend got, or go with your career path?
