Today, Jay and I received offers to staff teen tours with different companies for the summer. We both were offered staff positions with company X, and I was offered a tour director position with company Y. (This would be for a maximum of 4 weeks apart.) Company Y has cooler trips and more growth opportunity (in my opinion) and I could probably bring Jay on with Company Y as my staff, but for some reason the idea of reporting to me doesn’t thrill him and he is less interested in the types of programs offered by Y anyway. 🙂 Both companies ask for an answer to their offers before definitively telling you what trip you will be staffing and what part of the world you will be spending the summer in, so we don’t exactly have a full deck of cards.
I almost wish that we only received one offer each to make the decision easier. We may end up choosing to spend a portion of the summer working for different organizations in different parts of the world – a strange, but exciting prospect that we haven’t really experienced or tried since we dated long distance at the start of our relationship almost 5 years ago. Decisions, decisions – we’ll see!
