I am concerned about me at this very moment! I don't have a job and I have a job offer. I have been actively seeking employment since about March. I am not the person who likes to sit around--I know that work is overrated but sedentary does not work for me. Anyway the point is: should I take the job offer? I just feel like I am really settling for anything if I take the job. First of all the job is in the middle of nowhere. (I am not hating on the middle of nowhere b/c clearly I grew up in the middle of nowhere but I know my middle of nowhere.) Second of all the boss isn't fond of black people. (I know black people commit crimes but do they have to be locked up for the maximum every time.) Third of all my mom would have to help me pay my bills. (What is the point of being in the real world if I can't attempt to pay my bills?) Fourth of all, I already worked there and hated it. (I wasn't even working full time so what would full time be like?) Part of the reason why I hated it was because I didn't learn anything. The person I would work for did all his own research and I just sat there. That would be wonderful (to get paid to do absolutely nothing) but if I actually want to go somewhere in my legal career I have to have some experience when I go to my next job.

What do you think? I am seriously asking for your advice so please give it to me.

I obviously haven't read in awhile. But no, I don't think you should take it. That would be settling and you would be more unhappy than you are now. Sit tight and right this out a little longer. I will pray for you

Well, I think you should try to compromise a little, at least with your first job. Your first job will provide valuable experience that you can't get anywhere else.

My first "real" job out of undergrad was in technical support - versus my field of study. I did well at my job because I was able to see the value in learning about office dynamics and other skills I'd need to make it at any other job.

Good luck and you know you are always in my prayers!
