Seasonal woes

So I went Seasonal after my program ended. There are new requirements that you have to complete 150 hours from Oct 1 2011 to Sept. 30th 2012. I went down after Christmas and New Year's and worked 80 hours.

I had put in my availability for my Spring Break in March hoping to get close to 40 hours and then I would pick up some EHH to get some more. But I was only scheduled for 6 hours =(

So is it worth it to still travel the 1600+ miles and try to find other shifts? I'm not sure. The other issue is that I had planned to return over the summer but now I was offered an internship at General Motors in Detriot. It was too much of an amazing opportunity to pass up so I accepted it. Even if I did go down and manage to find at least 30 hours, I would still need another 40 to meet the requirements. I don't see that happening.

So I'm sad to say that my Disney experience may be coming to an end for now. I really wish that I did not have to choose, but to be honest if GM offers me a job after graduation I will take it. And I wouldn't be able to stay seasonal anyway.

As of right now, I am going to try to give that shift away, and see what happens between now and Sept. 30th. If I cannot meet the requirements I will leave the company in an appropriate manner so I can be eligible for another CP or PI after I graduate next May.
