And while that’s all understandable, instead ask yourself: what if this whole “job” thing were actually an internship? What if the obligation was for three months and nothing more?
Would you hope for an offer at the end of the summer? Would you strive to make the job that you have right now a permanent position if it really wasn’t? Or would you, in your job that you hold now, instead sit down with the boss to say, “thanks, but no thanks. This isn’t for me” and pack up your stuff? If so, would you have done it already? Or would you maybe be in the middle, at neither end of the spectrum. You’re still feeling out the job you have now – maybe it’s okay. Not great, not horrible, just good.
And if that’s the case, take another few months to figure out where you stand.
