Earlier this month I graduated from college with a BA in Mass Communications with a specialization in Public Relations. I had previous interned at a non profit organization working in the PR
department. My supervisor offered me a job as her assistant. Great, right? The only problem at the time was getting this position approved through the new executive director. On my last day I told her I was interested and such.
Well I moved back home (home is an hr and half away from said position) I only want to be at home temporary. I guess you can say I kinda put my eggs in one basket because the kind of work I want is a crappy job due to waiting to hear back from the organization and plus I have bills on my own to pay.
My dad tells me not to sell myself short because I have a real degree and I should apply for a real job. Here is where I feel like I'm betraying my former supervisor.
No I did not give her a verbal agreement, I only said I was interested. I think though she is counting on me to return though. I'm fine with that, it's just how long will I be waiting. While I wait, no income is coming in and I can't rely on my parents to pay my bills and such. Plus I don't want to be a burden. I have started to apply for professional jobs, but as I mentioned, I feel like I'm betraying my former boss.
What would one do in this situation? On one hand, I have to eat and pay bills. I could do that w/ a so so job. But then my parents put pressure on me to apply for a real job w/ a real salary and benefits.
I feel like I'm in a midlife crisis lol.
