I work at a school, where my position is funded by a grant. This grant is up in September, and I have been working to determine whether there will be a position for me when the money is out.
Also, there's an awesome opportunity to go to Gallaudet university in Washington, D.C. For two weeks, all expenses paid. I really want to go but there's a contract, and if you go on the trip, you must work for a year after at the school or pay the cost of the trip back to the school. I can't guarantee that and I can't afford to pay the money back.
Anyway, I've been pushing for an answer about a position here to determine whether I could safely participate in the trip. I got this email from my boss, telling me that her boss recommends that I not go on the trip because he can't guarantee me a position next year. It hurt.
