    Job offer, what do you think?

    So, I went to a dinner show (kind of like Medieval Times) last night and saw recognized one of the riders from my last job! I went up and chatted with him and mentioned that I had started taking riding lessons. He said I should audition for the show since half of the riders didn't know how to ride anyways and that my taking lessons would be a big plus.

    Now, this would be the greatest job ever!! Getting paid to ride horses all day! What more could I ask for right? Unfortunately the only thing stopping me is the darned economy. The dinner show is almost completely relying on tourists and tourism is down drastically. Even Disney World has suffered from it. I'm worried that if I decide to do it, I wont have a job in a few month. Granted, when we saw the show the arena was completely full. The job I'm at now, I hate but its a secure job that I can't loose unless they close down our store.

    The plus side, is that I would FINALLY be doing something that I loved and the pay would be better than what I'm getting now.

    What do you think?

    Is there an offer on the table you have to decide on? Or are you considering applying?

    Considering applying I guess? Since I already know one of the riders that I worked with for a year, I kind of a way in I guess?

    Lol of course I might not even get the position but there's no reason to apply if I'm not set on taking it should they offer.

    Ah -- go ahead and apply. You don't have anything to lose by applying, but if later on down the road you see someone doing what you COULD have been doing, you may regret it. An application is only an application; it's not a commitment.

    Unless you really like your present job apply. Not sure how old you are but you have a lifetime to work at a boring job or one you don't like if you choose. I've always gone with what I like, lifes to short not to.

    Even if I knew for sure there was a chance I may not have a job in a few months time, I would totally go for it. How much fun could that be! Take it one day at a time and apply. You really have nothing to lose and I doubt you could lose your job that easily anyways. Having said that tho, are you use you would have a chance to be hired to ride the horses? Because last I saw the show, the riders were all "knights". I would think you would be either in the background serving or cleaning up after the horses?

    I would say go for it. But like CacheDawnTaxes said, the females are all dancers or servers. The knights are...knights. You may get to take care of the horses behind the scenes though and that could be fun.
