So. I'm pretty new to this group (but have always been a working mom). I'm having issues with whether or not to attempt to get a new job.
I currently work for an internationally know non-profit org that's mission is to help individuals with developmental disabilities, mental health issues and crimina; histories prepare for find and retain employment. I work with the dd population and I love my job. It's too easy though, I have a realyl great crew of individuals and they really don't need much from me and the paperwork is a sinch. I've been in this job for close to 3 years and I am happy here. But, this is my first job out of college (I'm 24) and I am starting to feel sort of stuck. There's not much room for advancement here, and I am kind of the low man on the totem pole still because everyone else in the department has been employed for 5+ years so if they put in for a promotion, their experience would put them before me anyhow. And no supervisors are retiring any time soon as most are in their 40's.
But, I got an email about a job that I would LOVE to have. It's with the regional food bank and the job is to put together profiles for major "gifts" to the agency. Basically, to talk someone into giving their major gift and keeping them donating would be the job, to put it VERY simply. Everyone that I know, knows that I would much rather be on the corporate side than the direct care side. I've seen both good and bad agencies and I feel like that is something I want to do, on the good side of corporate of course. Seems like I've already made up my mind right?
So why am I so torn on even sending a resume in to get an interview?
