I need some advice on a job situation.
I just completed the second interview for a position and will know in about 2 weeks if I am still among the top candidates. If I am, I will either have a 3rd interview on the phone or will fly down to the hospital. Now, the hospital system is impressive and I know I would be working with a good team and would learn a lot.
The situation is this. I'm young, single, vivacious and would really, really, really prefer to work in a city or near one because, I get bored and would like to be in a place that has a lot going on. I take my social life seriously and I will go out of my mind if I don't have one. Kind of like I am now. The position I am interviewing for is in South Carolina, near Myrtle Beach. Now before you exclaim, Myrtle Beach! Go! Go!, realize that that place is only hopping in the summertime and aside from that the nearest cities are anywhere from 1.5-2 hours away. Bummer.
So IF I am offered the position (I realize I might be jumping the gun here and might not even make it to the next round but this is a big decision) what would you do? Take the first job offered to you and suck it up OR say thank you but no thank you and continue applying for jobs in more metropolitan areas to pursue a dream? I'm tempted by both options but realize I'm young an inexperienced thus, I ask you. What would you do?
