Turning down a job

Seems so foolhardy, when I don’t yet have a job. I am going to call and cancel this interview, because

  • This job doesn’t expand my skill set
  • This job has depth but not breadth it seems. I would be a big fish in a small pond working with two counties, rather than a little fish in a big pond working with multiple communities and teammates
  • Interviews are in the middle of finals week
  • The start date would likely preclude summer travel (with Mom)
  • The location is ~1 hour+ from a major airport
  • Also, I thought I would escape the South
  • The pay is good but not great
  • I am not excited about this job; better to hold out for an opportunity that sounds stimulating

Alright, that gives me the fortitude to call to cancel this interview.
