This summer I'm working at a paid internship. As I've performed very well, my employer wants to hire me full time (this pipeline is the reason the company hires interns), but knows I'm going back to graduate school (non-thesis program, just classes) in the fall and spring, so I will only be able to work part time. However, my boss really wants to offer me full-time employment (and much higher pay), and suggested I spread out my next year of graduate school over the next two years. This would certainly make me more money, and give my employer the benefit of knowing I'm not going anywhere for two years.
However, unknown to my boss, in a year I'm moving across the country to live with my partner, who is also graduating at that time. Therefore, I need to finish school in one year (as planned), which only lets me work part time.
Refusing the full-time position will essentially tell my boss I don't intend to stay with the company. However, I really do want to continue working (albeit part time) for the next year. Will I be jeopardizing my job if I admit to my boss that I already know I'm leaving in a year?
