Today I have gotten into an argument with my fiancee and I want to hear everyone's opinion on this.
I received a call today from a company that I consider to be my dream company. They are a big health care provider in Ontario. They asked me if I wanted to interview for a job that is different than the one I applied for. I was interested but then they said it was temporary full-time (3 months) with a possibility of moving to full-time in November based on if the person I was filling in for was able to receive life long disability status.
I am marrying my fiancee in October and currently we rent a house and have 2 dogs, 2 cats and a rabbit. We pay all utilities and she is also going back to school in September to further her degree.
I currently work full-time for another company so I have stability right now and assurance that I will have a job tomorrow or 4 months from now.
I politely and professionally turned down the opportunity to interview for this position solely for my family. I don't believe we can risk the possibility of me not having a job come November.
My fiancee is FURIOUS! I mean over the moon pissed and doesn't see my reasons as valid stating that I could apply for internal postings and such during those three months and is afraid they will never call me again for a position.
Did I make the right choice? I always think about money and didn't want to risk our current security. If I was wrong please let me know how so I can learn for next time.
EDIT: I should mention that my current full-time job is as a software developer so it's not some menial job and the person on the phone said the chance of it becoming a permanent position was less than 40%
