Evaluating a new opportunity isn’t easy. Even your dream job will have less exciting aspects. Things that are downright boring. I speak from experience.
I was what is known as a nontraditional student. That means I worked a full-time job and took my classes in the evening.
As a twenty-something, I did my best to find time for a social life too. The occasional date or evening out with friends. It took me almost 7 years to get my B.A.
After graduating with a degree in English and a minor in Media Studies, I landed a job as an assistant editor with a national 4-color magazine. Within the first 30-days I was writing the news column. Since it was a small publication, in a few months I was writing feature articles and helping the photographer with cover shoots. And I had the best boss ever.
It was awesome.
I loved every minute of it.
