Interview with a side of quandry

Ok, so... I have an interview set up for Monday. Which you would think is a good thing. It's Downtown which will mean the commute should be pretty easy (yay for public transportation) and the best benefit is that I would have an office and there is a window in the office.

Now for the quandry. The job pays teeny tiny monies. More than minimum wage, but not enough for Ms. Cleo to live on. It is 10K a year less than my last job and the smallest salary I'd have since 1997. (Starting in 1998, I was making 3k a year more than this job pays, starting in 2000 $5k more and starting in 2003, I've always made at least 10K more than this job pays).

And yet, it's the first interview nibble I've had in 3+ weeks.

When you start a new job, you can't exactly say "I have an appointment I need to go to...." and I really want to find a job I can stick with so I can get 3-5 years of steady employment under my belt.

And yet, it's the first interview nibble I've had in 3+ weeks.

So... I am pondering whether I should take a job that guarantees that I am going to have to get a second job which may be premature because I haven't even been to the interview yet. For all I know, they'll hate me or they'll find someone else that they want to hire.

We'll see how things turn out.
