Good morning ladies, I am posed with a dilemma and since I KNOW y’all will be unbaised, I’m coming to you for opinions.
I have been job hunting for a little while now, have turned down a few offers at this point that were everything I didn’t want, but I’m ready to make a decision. I have two offers on the table, they are explained below.
Not in my field, but doing sales (which is where I want to be) super laid back attitude in the office. Mon-Fri 8-5, decent commission, room to grow. Paying significantly more then job two.
In my field- doing sales. Paying significantly less with okay commission rates. Holidays, weekends, and long hours are required. Some room to grow.
They both want me to start Monday morning, I’m staring at both offers just wondering what the heck I’m going to do (side note: i left my last job due to lack of work/life balance)
If you have any advice or words of wisdom, I’ll be happy to read them. Thanks bees!

The first one, despite not being in your field, sounds like a much better opportunity. Unless you are really wanting to stick with exactly what you’ve been trained in, I would take the better pay and laid back enviornment!

Job one. I personally would prefer a job with work/life balance than a job in my field, especially if you ultimately wanted a sales job.

I left my field for a better opportunity and miss some aspects of it, but the money is good and my new field has some pretty cool, just different, perks. I’d say take job one and rake in the money!!

Definitely job 1!! work/life balance is priceless, especially when the job that gives you more quality time at home pays more!

Yea, I’ll jump on the bandwagon. More work-life balance AND better pay? This isn’t even a close call.
