Does the wages still matter when you’ve just found the much awaited job?
After months of research and scores of interviews, you’ve finally found the company that offers you the work space and the job you wanted so badly. One single detail hasn’t come up to your expectations: the wages.
The first thing you should have in mind is whether you can afford to accept the respective wages, whether your current expenses and the comfort level you’ve been used to can be satisfactorily settled with what you’re offered. Then balance your professional satisfaction with the level of your material gains. Take into consideration that a very well paid job which, however you’re not so mad about, won’t make you happier, but on the contrary.
On the other hand, in a job where you can use your experience and grow professionally, the wages shouldn’t be the key element. It’s very likely that after a relatively short period of time, your responsibilities grow and along with them, your salary too.
