So I didn't wind up taking the job. When I went to talk to the recruiter this morning to confirm my employment eligibility, I mentioned that I had still spent yesterday evening filling out application after application for various jobs that I found online. And really… that means I'm not comfortable accepting the position. She was okay with it. She understood. I don't want to start a job that I intend to quit as soon as I can find something else. It's not fair to the employer, and it's not fair to the recruiter, and it's not fair to me.
I'm okay with it. I'm sure if I don't find something else in the next week or so I'll regret that decision and wish I'd taken it just to get job history on record, but for now… I'm still unemployed.
And so I don't have to scramble for childcare.
Which makes me happy.
