This might be a question for those with HR experience but I would appreciate your thoughts as well.
This is my issue at the moment. I have applied for uni and if I am successful my plan is to resign from work and study full time. If I don't get into uni I will need to work. Work currently know nothing of my plans. My contract at work has just finished but will be renewed and I have the following options -
Option A is continuing on in the job role I have now (but not sure how long my new contract would be for). Another girl and I have been offered the one position but I have first choice. If I choose this option it will mean the other girl will be unemployed. If I get into Uni then neither of us will have the position as she would have left the business all together and I will be resigning.
Option B is to change departments and start a new contract (again not sure how long the contract is at this stage). If I take this position one of the girls already in this department will have to leave as her contract will be up and work will not need both of us. Again if I get into uni I will resign and then I feel bad about the girl that just left as she could have continued her position. Also this position starts early January. Uni offers are made mid Jan so if I am successful then I may be handing in my resignation 2 weeks after I start my new role!
Do I tell work about my application? I'm worried that I am going stuff absolutely everyone around (employer and work colleagues) if i get into Uni.
I know it complicated right!!??
