some may know my story, but anyway. I currenlty work as a administrative assistant in a sales office. I had wanted to get into a sales manager position for a few years but realized about 2 years ago that it wasn't going to happen. My company is 90% men, a lot of nepotism and the good ole boy club going around.
Anyway... I decided 2 years ago to pursue nursing, and currently working on my last 2 pre-req classes before I apply for NS in january 2011. My boss just got a promotion and he tells me i should apply for his position, he has been kind of grooming me for the position and knows i can do the job.
This position has a company car and almost double my current salary, however, i have a few concerns. First, I know the V.P. has got his favorite lined up for the position and I most likely will not get the job. Secondly, if it happens, that hell freezes over, and they offer me the job, there is no way I can pursue nursing school because of the job responsibilites. lastly, I really don't want the job at this point, my career direction has changed and I don't want anything to get in the way. I have worked too hard for the past 2 years on my pre-reqs.
My question is...should i apply anyway since I am almost 1 year away from NS. Honestly, my passion is not there anymore. My friends and family say i should. The only thing appealing about the job is the company car and income. However, as I mentioned, I could bet my last penny, that I won't get it anyway.. but I don't want to deal with the rejection either.
At this point, I just want to be left alone, to lurk in the shawdows until I move on to my Nursing career. Why couldn't this happen 2 years ago... what's the point in applying
