I currently have a full-time job, and I'm a month away from getting the medical benefits. However, I might have a part-time job offer coming up that's more related to what I studied in university. Should I stay with my current job until a full-time job in my field of study comes up, and then that way I can get the medical benefits of my current job? One advantage to the part-time job is that if I go back to university, the part-time job wouldn't get in the way. Other than that, I risk starting a new job that won't give me medical benefits, and they might even find after they hire me that I'm not the right fit for that job (lots of customer service, and I'm an introvert).

Stick with what you got until you can get something better IF the PT job promises to become a FT job in the near future, grab that!! You'll just have to leave a more modest life for a little while `til things pick up.0
My answer depends whether or not you live on your own and pay your own bills. If you live on your own, staying with the full time job is going to offer more stability. Housing is expensive. Plus you’re very close to receiving benefits, which are pretty important to have in case of an emergency. You may not be offered any benefits if you work part time. If you can swing both jobs, then by all means go for it, but hold onto your current job in case you decide you don’t like it or are no longer interested in that field. At least you’ll have something to fall back on.0
Do both. The full-time job for the money and stability, the part time one for experience in your field. It might make it easier for you to get a full-time job related to your studies. If you can’t or don’t want to do both I’d stick with the full-time job.0
What Girls & Guys Said
So think about your survival first, like covering the rent etc. If they're covered with the part time then get that. If not then stick to the full time job for a while longer.0
If it is financially possible you should take the part time one and continue with it when you go back to school.0
Stay with your full time job at least until you know for sure you have the part time job. Then it depends on if you need the benefits and a full check.0
All depends on if that part time job is temporary. If job is temporary I wouldn't.0
Stick with the current full-time job.0
I would say pursue your dreams. A job is a job. If you do what you love, then you'll NEVER work again!0
If you like the full time job, stay with it. The medical benefits are well worth your staying.0
It's all about the balacance of money and future prospects imao0
Full time job.0

Good question - If it were me, I would ask myself, do I like my current full time job with the benefits? Do I see myself doing it for years to come? Will I be sick of it in a year or two? Your job/career is something you should enjoy, you don't want to be miserable every night when you get home.
If the part-time job gives you the stepping stone to what you took in University and that is/was your dream-job, then sometimes you need to take a risk. There is no reward in life without a bit of risk.
I guess the other question you need to ask, is whether you still want to work towards what you took in university? Does it still interest you?
