viccarmom Posted April 12, 2013 Report Share Posted April 12, 2013 Let me just start out saying the good thing is by DD has a choice to make. The bad thing my DD has a choice to make! I would like to get some opinions from you. My oldest DD has been offered two options this summer with possible employment after attending the mandatory 5 week intensives. Option 1: Through a company audition she was invited to their SI for more observation. She felt really good about this audition and could tell they were interested but they did not talk to her afterwards (not really sure if they talked with anyone afterwards though). This company is young but has been impressive with their progress. They pay per performance, monthly honorariums, shoes and possible teaching opportunities within the attached school. DD sent an email asking if she could attend one week and still be considered because she would be attending another SI that required attending the full 5 weeks and it would conflict. They just responded yesterday offering a partial scholarship to attend the full 5 week intensive. Option 2: Through a second company class audition she was invited for summer to be considered for a second company position but probably the training division because of her age (just turned 19). DD felt good about the class and felt she was comparable to others in the room (already in this 2nd company). The AD did not teach the class and I would assume he would be making the offer at the end of summer. This company is more established and larger but probably harder to get into but would be DD first choice given she would be offered a second company position. I’m leaning toward option 1 but I don’t know much about the company and I really hate she has to put all her eggs in one basket and could be left with nothing at the end of summer. Ultimately it is her decision. She will be consulting with a couple of her current teachers to get their opinion also. Help!! Quote Link to comment
