Here's an odd dilemma to have: I have 2 potential jobs, and I need some opinions about pro and con, and which way to go. First, some background:
I am 50, 22 years experience with critical care, case management (insurance), and home care/mental health. Recently divorced, need a full time job to work on retirement savings, but also have hobbies that pay well, and 2 kids still at home. I have an RN, and a masters in health administration, been working part time in the home care/mental health, looking for full time CM. I have been running a sole proprietorship as a custom drapery fabricator and upholsterer for 7 years, and am very good at it, can't completely give it up as it is a stress outlet and design satisfaction.
The 2 jobs I am considering:
Both are in the same health system, job one is for an insurance managed care insurance doing Medicare Care Management for senior, all telephone work, M-F 8 to 4:30, no weekends or holidays, can work at home after 6-9 months. Education, challenging, friend works there and likes it, good benefits, could be boring.
job #2: Hospital CM, float between 2 hospitals in a large CM dept, not sitting, busier, M-F 8 to 4:30 with some weekend and holiday rotation. Very busy, not sitting on my rear at a telephone all day, but could mean 10 hour days and weekends/holidays.
I hope to save enough to retire in about 14 years, so I can go back to sewing full time, so whatever I pick, I am stuck with. I still have to be a single mom, like to sew, have to have a life, but hate being bored. HELP!
