[Aaron Cadieux] "I am not really into either of those things (especially web), and I am worried that I might hate it."

This is why they call it "work" my son.

My advice is to go all-in. Bite into every task with gusto, ESPECIALLY the ones you have no expertise or interest in, because these might be your ONLY tasks at your NEXT job.

I'd have given you different advice in 1998 or 2002. Jobs opportunities were exploding then. They're IMploding now.

Take the full-time job. Take the money. Give it your all. You'll put it too many hours, and you'll spend a lot of time miserable -- but you'll have work and get paid. Learn from the tasks you hate, lay the foundation for a future job that you can't even imagine today, and remember that this is why they call it work.

And pray that Zelin doesn't find this thread. :-)
