    I'm 21, never really had a long term job before. I intend on starting university in September of this year. I have been broke for a while now, barely having money to pay bills. After months of searching, I finally managed to find a job as a delivery driver for a food distribution company. I had an interview yesterday which went well. However, they said they were looking for someone long term to help them grow with the company etc etc. I just need a job till September. The guy did joke and say obviously he can't keep me there forever but at the same time didn't want to invest into someone who was gonna leave after 2/3 months (I kept my mouth shut). Is this something that most employers do? I honestly just want to save up money then leave once university starts, I don't want to be stuck there. Can I realistically take the job and leave in September without problems?

    Yes - there's no issue. Just ensure you work any notice period and resign with enough time to cover that notice period.
