Someone at Cancer Care Reads My Blog
I'm Smarter Than I Think
So, just today I got a phone call.
"This is Jenny from Cancer Care. Are you still interested in the full time term position that you interviewed for here? Because we're offering it to you."
"Uhhh... do you read my blog? I mean, can I sleep on it?"
I have to give them a decision by tomorrow.
With official "Knocked Up" status, things get more complicated. Yes it's true, I'm 6wks pregnant.
My current job has great staff. I have sick time accrued there as well as holidays. I have a permanent position. I don't like the commute nearly all the time. The job is heavy on my back. But I like it.
This job is temporary. What if I get sick too often and don't perform well? I'll be on probation for 3 months. What if I can't pull my load and they let me go? Sick time taken would be unpaid. But that would be okay because I'd be working more hours. Full time. All days. No more day/night switching. Easier on my back. I'd see the Husband more. But I would have no job to return to unless a permanent came up for me.
And if I wasn't able to perform well and keep this new job, another job at Portage would be waiting to be filled. I could pick up casual here, there, anywhere. I just wouldn't have sick time or holidays.
