Question: Should I accept a temporary job offer with the IRS in Utah?
I have no place to stay in Utah, so I would have to arrange for housing. All I need is a room, really. A cheap motel with weekly rates would work, if I can find such a place in Ogden, Utah. The job is working in the mail room for $12.00 an hour.
The job will last a maximum of thirty days, after which I will be unemployed again. I will be able to draw unemployment after the job ends, I think.
I have no other job offers at this time. I am not broke, but my savings are diminishing. The IRS job of course could be somewhat hazardous. Think about it. Opening mail at the IRS.
Disgruntled, crazy taxpayers. Who knows what they might send.
I am currently staying with relatives in Texas and have no real housing expense here, so I would not be paying rent in two places. It’s a 1500 mile drive to Ogden, Utah and I need to be there by 4:00 pm on Monday.
What it comes down to is this: Should I drive 1500 miles for about 1500 dollars, plus maybe 3 grand in unemployment?
Answer: It is up to you. Ogden is a good city lots of things to do here. We do have cheep hotels in which you could stay. Good luck on either decision that you make.
