Help me out. I lucked out after graduating with a degree in bio by getting a job with the tech transfer office at the university. They are converting me from what was supposed to be a 1-2 year internship into a full time position. The pay is ok (~40k), especially for where I live, and they would like me to start working towards an MBA (which would be free due to being an employee of the university). This all sounds fantastic and I should be grateful, especially in this economy, but there are problems. I'm not a natural business type due to my personality, and I'm really sick of living in this town. I've been thinking recently about going back to school for a year and becoming a med tech. It seems like a pretty stress-free career, they make decent money, and you can pretty much get a job anywhere you want, which is a huge plus for me. It's far from glamorous, however, and I almost feel like I'd be selling myself short if I opted for such a thing. So what do you think? Should I stick with the current job, get the MBA, switch over to industry and work my way up the potentially lucrative strategic planning/marketing/business develoment ladder? Or take the easier, lower stress avenue and have the freedom to live wherever, more time with the future kids, etc. Work to live or live to work?
