I interviewed for a position last week, but haven't heard anything since. (No news is generally bad news when it comes to job hunting.) I texted one of the people who was in the interview to find out if she knows anything about a decision being made.
There's another job posted with Regina Public Library right now that looks like it's been written for me. It's very similar to the literacy position I had in Yellowknife with Aurora College - and I know I could do it, and do it well. I'd enjoy it. The catch is the salary is only about 60% of what I would make as a teacher on the grid - and is considerably less than I made as a teacher at Western (when I made 80% of the grid). I'd make about $1,000 a month (gross) less. However, on the other hand, I'd enjoy the job, and I'd like to think I'd have a good chance of getting the position. On the other hand, if I was working full-time - it would limit me from any other job options where I could make a fair bit more. Is a job with a substantial pay cut still a good thing? I have to apply before Monday. So I have to make up my mind before then.
Then, there's another position (part-time) available through another community college (not SIAST) here in Regina. It's also quite similar to another job I had in Yellowknife. Again, I know I'd enjoy the work, and could do it. However, it's only a part-time position. Do I apply?
Decisions, decisions. I think the answer is to seek input and advice from others, and to pray about it a lot. So... I'm looking for comments and advice here.
