Hey guys and gals- I am facing a rather sticky predicament. I have recently decided to change jobs (the lab I was working in has essentially decided to cut me back to 10-15 hours per week and therefore the power company has essentially decided to cut back on the availability of my electricity ). Therefore, I am in the market for a new job... I've applied to several at my local academic medical center, and I've gotten one bite so far... problem is, in the nice, long-winded email my potential future employer sent me, she explains her lab's research and then specifically states: " would like to arrange a time to talk with you via telephone about your interests in our position and your long term plans." Yikes! Problem is, my long term plans are to attend medical school next fall (I've gotten a couple offers so far... so I'm definitely going SOMEWHERE next fall)... I feel like noone in their right mind would hire me for this short amount of time, but I have to water and feed myself at the same time? What should I do? What would you do?
