About a week ago, I received a job offer to become a project manager for Wells Fargo. While considering that position, I've today received an offer to become a business systems consultant for Wells. It's nice to be wanted... so which one?
I have some people with whom I can talk through this decision, and I'll be contacting them over the weekend, but in the meantime, the strengths of the positions seem to be a choice between depth and width.
Through the project manager position, I would learn a great deal about the company through a variety of projects.
The other position offers the opportunity to tunnel into an important and comprehensive subject and potentially manage people.
Both positions are equal in money (did they plan that?), so it's a wash there.
Either way, I'll land well. So which one offers the most growth and is better for my kids and me? That's what I'll wrestle with in the next few days.
In the meantime, things are quite busy and I'm really looking forward to the weekend.
