Uni or dream job?Watch
Now the spanner in the works....
An animal technician job has come up at my old school. This is literally a dream job, I loved it there and get the school environment + animals. It’s a win win. Pay however is £18,000-£24,000 so not great long term and is a 12 month contract with the strong possibility of becoming permanent.
What would you do? Continue with studies or apply for the job? I’d rather not go to uni in the future (as I would likely have to work alongside my studies whereas currently I can give my full attention to studies) and am also aware this job wouldn’t come again anytime soon 😩😩😩 it’s one or the other and I’m so stuck.
Uni and funding will be there until you're 60. Contracts can get extended, pay can go up and going into a teaching degree with work experience rather than straight from college etc is SO desirable.
That industry and general work experience against candidates that have none will be invaluable.\
If it were me, I would go for the animal technician job to build up my employment experience and some savings for a few years.
