So in the last week and a few days, I've had 3 job interviews. Tomorrow I go for a 2nd interview on 1 of them.

The first (and the one that I have the 2nd interview for) is 30 hours a week, closer to my house, more money, no benefits. They absolutely loved me and as long as I don't fuck up tomorrow, I think I'm good to go. If I get the job, I'll start this coming Monday.

The second is a little bit more money, health insurance, full time, but 15 miles away from my house. The interview went well, but I don't know. My co-workers interviewed with this place as well, and they both know more about the type of work than I do. They are only interviewing 7 more people this week (10 all together including myself), 2nd interviews next week and then making a decision.

The third is more money, benefits, 401k, vacation..etc. 10 miles away. The interview went ok. they asked me about a position other than the one that I applied for..which is good, I guess. They are interviewing more people and won't make a decision until the end of next week.

The last is a long shot, but the community college I attended is hiring. This would be the best job, but they haven't started with the interviews yet, so I don't even know if I'll get one. However, I do have a department chair making a phone call for me, so who knows?


So I don't know what I should do and I'm stressing myself out majorly. If I get this job that I'm going for a 2nd interview tomorrow and take it, what if I get one of these other jobs?

But then again, the other jobs I'd have to dress up (which I hate, so this is a major factor), and at the 1st job, I'd get to wear jeans every day.

I sooooooooooooo know I shouldn't be complaining about this with how the job market is, but I have my family to think about, so I want to make the best decision possible. I'm not sure how much longer the law office that I work at is going to be in business (and we think it isn't much longer).

tl;dr: 3, maybe 4 job a really good chance at the 1st, but if I take it, I'll be giving up the chance at better jobs with benefits. I don't know what to do!!

What should I do? What would you do?

And if you don't want to read that/don't care, how do you relieve stress?
