Some of you may have heard me lament on here about making decisions for future career prospects and that I returned to college last year. My original goal was law school but have since changed to becoming an accountant/CPA. Anyway about a month ago I received a call about a federal job that I applied to...I don't want to go into details but it's transportation related. I passed the initial test and the physical and just had my first interview. I think it went well though I was pretty nervous. It's the typical federal job with great pay and benefits but could become very monotonous. You basically start out at 45k, 55k by 2nd year, and 75k-100k when maxed out...its a union job so it's guaranteed. So now if I get the job I will have a decision to make. I'm one year away from a BA in accounting and 2 years away from taking the CPA exam. The federal job is extremely stable, but the hours are sporadic and it involves a lot of travel at all times. I'm basically choosing between the comfort and stability of a less fulfilling job(federal), and the uncertainty of the job market as well as two more years of school and all the loans that come along with it. Pretty much just venting but if anyone has had a similar decision to make and wants to add some insight that'd be cool.
