Type O Negative – “In Praise Of Bacchus”
I just got an offer to do another internship. It’s paid ($10-12 an hour, about 3-5 more than what I’m making now at work); I’d be doing HTML, Flash, and probably some PHP; and there is a distinct possibility that they’d be willing to hire the intern on as full-time once they graduate.
I’d like to do it, I really would. But I’ve already got five classes, a part-time job, and my current internship. And homework. And a bit of a life. How in the world would I fit that in?
I emailed the dept. director back and asked how many hours a week they’re looking for, and where the actual job site is. If they’re looking for any more than 10, or if it’s not in the immediate downtown Portland area, I might say no. I dunno. It’s a fantastic opportunity, it really is. I would HATE to turn it down. But… I just don’t know if I can do it. And we all know how much I suck at Flash.
What would you do if you were in my position?
I turned it down. I hate myself for it, but I really don’t think I could have done it. It would have been wayyy too much. The dept. director said he thinks I made a good decision.
File Under: General
I think first I’d find out if there were enough hours offered at this job to replace, not supplement, your current job. This one sounds like a plum.
Or do you have a full-time job now? If that’s the case, I’d hope like hell for the 10 hours or less at the internship.
Yeah you dont want to spread yourself to thin, stress sucks. It ages you.
