Those who regularly read my blog know that I recently began working a part-time retail position and a part-time volunteer position at the hospital.
Early this week, I received a call from a recruiter who wanted to discuss with me a lucrative banking position in New York City. Two days later, I received an offer for a full time position at the hospital where I have been working as a volunteer. The pay for the position at the hospital is approximately 1/3 of my former salary as a banker but will provide me with medical benefits. The day after I received the offer from the hospital, I received a call from an insurance company where I had interviewed two months ago for a position that I really wanted. The hiring manager wanted to know if I was still interested in the position. The position at the insurance company will provide compensation much greater than the hospital position.
Can you guess which position I accepted?
I am pleased to write that I have accepted the full-time position at the hospital and will continue to work on a part-time basis at the store. It wasn’t a hard decision for me to make. Life is not all about money.
