But my parents are on my case that I have to find a job. I finally got a call from a company I applied to online. I went to the interview and everything about the job seems wrong. It's a sales job and I just don't see myself enjoying it. Some how, in spite of my lack of enthusiasm in the interview, I got offered the job. It pays a salary and my parents are being very vocal that I must take this job. Yet, just the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach. What should I do?
