My career quandry:
My current boss is very difficult to work with, and I have 2.5 years experience working at this small firm, but I want to gain experience in the wider (coorporate) planning industry. I want a new job, and I want it to be with a big or top firm.
London is a short 1 hr plane ride away.I am interviewing for a job with a high profile London firm that would be a big career opportunity. If the job fits etc. I could take it but my husband wouldn't come with me as he's currently based in Northern Ireland. I would have to fly home on weekends.
That said the husband travels a good bit for his job (25% to 75%), but is starting a PHD in Northern Ireland.
I've already had one interview and the interviewer said that I could take the job and then transfer to a regional office closer at a later date.
Then again, London is my favourite city in the world, and I'm a young buck(ette), so why not spend a few years working in one of the most amazing Metropolises in the world...
So would you do it? Live a plane ride from your spouse for your job/career?
