I was recently offered a position in the finance department of a construction industry that pays in excess of 20% on top of my current salary. It tempted me without saying. I imagine having to earn an extra 20% a year and even through stocks or property that wouldn’t be easy. So having done the cost vs benefit analysis, I am still unsure. When do people reject a higher paying job? Unless you are of course leaving a current job that you love dearly.
The answer to this can never be sure and is probably a 50-50 chance. On one hand, my current role gives me time to pursue on other things like studying and bonding with family but on the other hand, the other role gives me a better opportunity for career advancement. Needless to say, the other role wouldn’t allow me time to bond with my family and study, at least for the first year or so.
There are many discussions over a dream job vs lucrative paying job out there and it is more obvious to state the least. But when you are faced with a “nah paying job vs a nah nah higher paying job”, the decision is not so easy. Interested to see how folks who are more experienced would take this into consideration.
