Recently I have been presented with two options, one that will guarantee me a salary and benefits doing something that is tolerable, but not my passion in the slightest. Another opportunity is offering me an unpaid internship, a chance to join a team and company that is a start-up and currently thriving...it's in an industry I love and it's something I can really envision myself doing in the future. With the possibility of a full time position after the internship in the fall I am wondering what to do. Take the money now and have a stable job or gamble and take a chance with a company that offers no guarantees only a shining beacon of opportunity?
I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this! Have you ever been presented with a similar situation? Do you trust your head or heart? I always have trouble picking my passions and interests over "right" and "logical" decisions.
