Tomorrow will likely be a big day for me so I figure I need to blog before I lose my mind or eat a cake or something.
Sorry this will be a boring blog.
I realize this is not losing Utah or rocket science or anything. I just have difficulty letting people down.
I have a consulting gig through RGP, the company I "work" for. I got the thumbs up Friday afternoon. The issue is I have been jobless for 10 weeks. They have failed to find me work. Soooo, I looked elsewhere.
I had multiple interviews with TIAA CREF. I should hear something tomorrow. I of course do not know when tomorrow. The issue is IF I get the offer how do I handle it.
The RGP Account Manager will call me tomorrow and ask that I get a drug test so I can get started on the Ingersoll Rand assignment. I assume he will call BEFORE I know if i have a TIAA CREF offer.
IF I get the TIAA CREF offer...
- - It is closer than Inersoll Rand, which is 45 miles one way.
- - It will get me more banking experience
- - Part of the job will be working in the organization change management area which is what I am most interest in.
- - It is contract to hire
- - It is better pay
Sooooo, I should be strong enough to say...
I am so very sorry, this is the last thing you want to hear but I am not 100% certain about this assignment. I am waiting to hear back about a TIAA CREF position. It is hard to pass us as it is a longer term assignment, closer, better pay and contract to hire.
OR... do i avoid a conversation with the Account Manager until i hear from TIAA CREF. That would of course be easier but how to I do that?
I can lie and say I am unavailable for some reason. I hate to even bring up TIAA CREF unless I get the offer. I am sometimes overly optimistic and as my DH said Friday, "this my be the only offer I get."
Maybe I should just get the drug test info from him and stall. This is the only thing stopping my starting at Ingersoll Rand. That sounds like a pretty good idea. Then break the news if I do get the offer.
What do you think?
Sorry to bother you with this. As I said it should not be earth shatter.
