Hexagram 12: Standstill

Question: Should I accept the job offer at C. C. C. High School?

A few years ago, I had been offered a teaching position at a private school. This position was created specifically for me, allowing me to teach four different foreign languages, as interest was high in the school to learn new languages. The salary was decent, yet I had a nagging feeling something was not right, so I asked the question "Should I accept the job offer at CCC High School? The answer was # 12 with no changing lines.

Result: The offer was revoked before any contract was signed, as the school discovered it didn't have the money to support the position I was offered!
