I got a call yesterday that I scored an interview for a helicopter dispatcher for the local hospital. My interview is next week. I think I'm very well qualified, because I've been a dispatcher for 15 years. I'm not going to tell them I'm pregnant. I'm sorry! If they don't choose me, I want to make sure that it's because they have someone more qualified. They are not allowed to ask me, and I certainly won't tell them. I'm chubby enough to hide the tummy.

Here's some of the pros and cons I'm wrestling with.

  • The job is 10 minutes from my house in comparison to 45 minutes I currently drive.
  • I will be able to deliver my baby closer to home, so family can come visit.
  • I would like to make some friends closer to home.
  • I love what I do.
  • My mom-in-law works there.
  • I would love to finally be off the switchboard.
  • I'm hoping it pays more.
  • If one of the kids get sick, I can pick them up much faster.
  • I love my current doctor.
  • I would be starting a new insurance with a new deductible.
  • How is the new job going to handle my maternity leave?
  • The job is a 12 hour day.
  • Would the new job be understanding of my doctor's appointments?
  • I feel bad for leaving my job when I'm nominated for Employee of the Year.

As you can see, there are a lot of things I'm mulling over. I was even considering canceling the interview, but gosh, I would hate to miss out on what could be an excellent opporturnity. Let me know your thoughts.

I would definitely go to the interview and see how it goes and then go from there. Good luck.

I agree, I'd go to the interview & take it from there..... I guess like most things, there are pros & cons & you need to weigh up what they mean to *you* & your family... a pro that seems like a big deal to me, might not be as much of a big deal to you.. or a con that seems like a big deal to me, might not be so much for you...

good luck with the interview, either way!
