It is 15 minutes from my house - this would be a huge improvement over my 1.5 hour commute (EACH WAY) to my current job. It would also be a mile from DH's job, so we could have lunch together occasionally, which I would love!!! I would be super-busy and would be learning new stuff all the time, this would be nice after spending over a year in a mind-numbing job like I'm in now. There are opportunities to telecommute at least part-time in the future. And, my potential boss has two small children so she would probably be a little more understanding than most of "child issues". The money could be VERY good (or not so good, see below).
The position I'm in now is VERY stable and secure (but boring as Hell) with great benefits that we have the entire family on right now. Although the benefits at the new job look pretty good, I wouldn't be eligible for them for over two months (can you do COBRA if you leave a job?) The position is a salary + commission job, there are a lot more risks with this than my current salaried job. (However, there is the potential to make a lot more money than I am making now.) The job is in the mortgage banking industry, which is still strong now, but won't always be that way given that the real estate market tends to lag and we are in a rough economy now.
Anyway, I am going to go in for the interview, it's tomorrow night after work! Please keep your fingers and toes crossed that it's really a good opportunity and that I do well.
