This week, I found myself in the difficult position of choosing between two jobs. A very enviable position, I guess, especially in light of these dire economic times. The problem with it was that I had to go through two different headhunters to get the two positions - and if you’ve ever had to deal with these guys, you know that they’re called that name for a very good reason. They simply won’t take no for an answer, and I wouldn’t get the offer letters if I verbally said no to either of them. I decided that the only logical thing to do was to tell them both that I’d take the positions they were offering.

Therein lied the dilemma - obviously I wouldn’t be able to work for both companies, but I wanted the two offer letters in my hand so I could compare them side-by-side. The goal I’m trying to accomplish is to make sure that I would make the best decision for myself. And dammit, if I have to trample and piss anybody off along the way, I really don’t care as long as what I choose I make is ultimately right for me (and my family).
