Hard decisions

Had to make the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make(to date at least).
Went to a job interview, and I actually turned it down.
I’m very torn and confused about the whole thing.
First off, I got the call last night about a job with a financial company(which will remain nameless) and they were looking at my resume and wanted to interview me. No prob, so that’s what I did today.
Have you ever felt that a collosial mistake is about to be made if you say yes one more time during an interview? That’s how I felt, and I waited for the lady to say ‘Do you think that this is a business model that you could work with?’ That was the point, it wasn’t an interview, it was a sales pitch, but it took me 30 minutes to figure it out. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t one of those fly-by-night sorta companies. They made the #1 company in Forbes three years running(there’s a hint), but it wasn’t computer related. Not even close to IT. They wanted me to ‘sell’ their plan to families that needed financial assistance. And it sounds like a great plan and I’m going to tell a few friends about it so that they can get their head above water and the like, but it’s not the job for me. Luckily she understood this and it all went smoothly.
BUT IT WAS A GUARENTEED JOB!!!!!
That’s the part that’s hard to swallow.
The real problem is bascially this; with the type of personality that I have, I’d take this job and do it for 20 years, and never look for anything else, always wondering if I just should of held out a little longer on EI and gotten a job that I WANTED to do.
That’s why I said no. I’m still regretting it, but I think I did the right thing. And if I keep saying that I’m sure I’ll believe it soon.
What a day.
