I suspect most graphics design firms are looking for experience as well as a portfolio. Staying put may enable you to get that 2 years of experience in the field you love and it may also enable you to put together a great portfolio of your work product.

Another point to ponder, that position at the hospital may be a dead end position. Most hospitals contract out for their marketing as well as their graphiscs design. But, they certainly do generally have 401 k and other benefits that a small graphics design firm may never be in a position to offer.

Yes, you are correct... decisions, decisions, decisions. Best wishes to you.
Very good points........I'll think hard about it. Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
