I did inquire about that. On their website, it was supposedly re-posted, but the lady told me it had been filled. I did express interest in that position, which would have been more of what I'm used to, and would have paid a lot more than this position.

No raises, except for cost of living, and the last one they had was a couple years ago and it was a 1% cost of living increase. The insurance didn't cover as much as my current insurance, and even though parking wasn't as much as what I thought earlier, I still couldn't get past the idea of having to pay to park on a monthly basis.

So, I think I made a wise decision. I just feel this isn't just a lateral move, but it's a backwards pass!

Skinsguy -- I know the commute sucks, but keep looking. You can find something that is an upgrade. Going somewhere knowing you have no possible progression is a tough pill to swallow, especially when you're taking a cut to go there.

You should not feel bad for potentially accepting the college job, only to leave a couple weeks later to accept the advertising job. Companies have absolutely no loyalty to their employees. You can work somewhere for years and be laid off at a moments notice. The people you work with might feel bad, but the company wont. By the same token, you dont owe any of these companies anything.

Unless, you give them "your word" that you'll stay there for a certain amount of time, you should have no qualms about accepting the college job and leaving for something better.
BHA is rarely right about anything but he's right on this.

Just saw this. Good decision. Sorry to hear it didn't turn out to be as good an opportunity as you thought, but glad to hear the decision got easier.
