The other jobs are thru a recruiter, and its all very "controlled."
I just have to remember that long term I need a happy place with good people & challenges for me. I think this consulting opportunity really is more of a "career" than a "job" and I definitely see myself being there for the long haul. These other opportunities are just kinda "eh" - but good money to start. I have that feeling that this is a pivotal moment in my life story...I better not f- it up!!
