So yeah, I've been doing the self-employment thing for 10 years
now, it's time for a change. For those of you who never tried it,
it can be quite enjoyable (you really can make money while you
sleep) also when you check your computer to see how much
you made while out golfing. Down side, horrendous hours, no social
life, and up/down cycles regarding cash flow.
So I decide a more steady income, and the security of that regular
check is the way to go now. (I am very aware I could be fired/laid
off at any time). So after many months of searching, I find out
that I am unhireable because I was self employed for so long, thus
unmaneageable, read: "he does things his way" That's true to an
extent, but I can adapt pretty easily.
So I finally get a decent job offer, 42K to start, that's cool, that's
what an entry level Econ major makes in my area, plus I get all these
benefits that I totally forgot about while being self employed.
Problem. The job requires me to work 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM. I signed
up for some paralegal classes that are Monday-Thurs 7-10 PM. I really
LOVE these classes and don't want to cancel. Plus, if I do, I have
no more room for addendums, my GPA was thrashed by LSDAS, and it was way low
to begin with.
What would you do? I haven't had a real job in 10 years, should I express
how important just this one Semester is, or should I never even bring it up,
and take the swing shift hours. Their policy is all new hires work swing,
and I think they might make exceptions, but at the same time, don't want to
lose the job before I even earn a paycheck. (wow, paycheck, don't even
remember what they look like
