How to deal with uncertainty in job hunt?

I'm currently jobless and have been hunting for web development/programming jobs for the past three weeks. I just received my first offer two days ago, but do not feel that the company is right for me. On the other hand I'm pretty anxious about passing up the opportunity. What do you think I should do?

What do graphic artists/publishers charge?

How much should I charge for my services? My local car dealership asked me to produce a newsletter for his 4000 customers. I've been working in another industry for 30 years and am exploring doing my life's passion-graphic arts, for work. I do not know what to charge for this. He has seen my work and loves it. Any suggestions? An hourly charge? Per diem? Per copy?

What might I like/dislike about working in healthcare quality improvement?

The research/datawonk job that I (mostly) love has fallen victim to the times and other hazards. Though I'm by no means wedded to this area, the Mr. and I have given it some thought and decided that this is not a good time (for personal or economic reasons, given family nearby and the difficult local housing market) to pick up stakes. Most of my instincts suggest that I really could make a go out of flying solo, at least for a while. This notion has been bolstered by an outpouring of positive comments and support from several community clients. However, I feel like I owe it to myself to at least consider what other options for "stable" employment might be out there that suit me. I have an upcoming interview for a job for a health care organization in the QI department. I'd like to hear from anyone in the hive mind who's gone this route. Given what I've shared above, what might I find fun, tedious, stressful, etc. about this line of work? What would the day-to-day work be like? What kinds of things should I ask about or look out for in my upcoming interview? (More specifics below the fold) [more inside]

Help me wow them with a good first impression!

I will be e-mailing my resume to a company that is hiring for an operations management position. My experience and knowledge seems to line up perfectly with what they are looking for. They included a phone number in the employment ad. I want to call shortly after I send my resume and introduce myself as I am sure they are receiving hundreds of resumes. Other than, "Hi. My name is so-and-so and I was calling to see if the position is still open," what are some ways to leave an impression and engage the HR manager in a brief conversation?
