I currently work as a Youth Librarian (ages 1-18) at a small, urban branch library in my library district (located in Midwest, USA). I have the opportunity to apply for a new position - the first-ever Teen Librarian at the main, large, suburban branch in my library district. I know that if I apply, I will get his job. The benefits of taking it would include: the oppotunity to work with a larger staff (meaning my job would be less stressful), the opportunity to start a Teen library program from the ground up (which would be a lot of responsibility and a lot of fun at the same time), the opportunity to work with suburban teens (i.e., nerds like me). The only thing holding me back is the fact that my husband and I will most likely be moving to NYC sometime in the upcoming May or June. I wouldn't be able to start this new job, if I take it, until the first of December. I'm worried that taking this position would be more harmful than beneficial for the organization and perhaps me as well. I know it takes a while before I really feel comfortable with a new job and I'm not sure if 5-7 months is worth it. I'm also worried about what this switch might look like to potential new employers. Will it look like I was fleeing the urban environment (bad for NYC libraries) or like I simply wanted to specialize in Teen services(good if I want to gain more Teen Librarian appeal)? Also - I know (99% sure) I'm moving and a couple of coworkers know I might be moving, but the official decision won't be made until February or March. So...should I go for it or just stick with the library I'm currently in?
