In a dilemma...please help!

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by Miss behavin!, Apr 11, 2012.

  1. Hello
    I have just recently accepted a teaching post abroad...it all happened very quickly and I would still be happy to go for it.....BUT I have just seen another job, through the same agency which is alot more interesting and challenging and in a country I originally asked the agency to place me in. They told me at the time there weren't many opportunities coming up there now so I didn't want to wait in case nothing came up at all. I have spoke to the agency and they said they can't put me forward for it...I was honest and told them I was interested in it, What do I do?!
    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Ahh. The age old dilemma.
    Is a bird in the hand worth two in the bush? Don't forget - you might be burning bridges behind you if you un-accept the first in the hope of getting the second.
    I would suggest that you shrug ruefully and take the first position.

    It was just a sudden thought- happened over the last couple of hours and now I'm getting over it. I'm happy with what I have and going to stick to it. Thanks for your advice :)

    'sfunny - but I've just accepted a job in India.
    I also applied for one in Brunei which would have been the chosen location.
    But the India job offered first.
    So we'll never know........
