What is more important: the position or salary?
People are asking: what is more important - a good, interesting work and high wages. This question is no single answer. Of course, the ideal situation, if the position of a person not only allows him to do what he likes, but also brings a good income, providing a decent standard of living. But, alas, it is not always.
Suppose, and work is good, it is this of which you have dreamed; and it is located conveniently close to the house; and the labor collective - better than you can imagine. And the salary is unfortunately low. And the one-man it is difficult to live, but if you have a family? So we have to think: Do not change this position to the other, more profitable. Or, on the contrary, the salary is very good, the envy of many. Family is provided with everything necessary, you can go to foreign resorts, shop at expensive stores, etc. But we have to engage in business unloved, literally forcing myself getting a lot of negative emotions. Or team quarrelsome, prone to intrigue, and the head - too cantankerous, capricious, whose seven Fridays in the week. Here it is sometimes no money do not want to, because their nerves, not strangers. Therefore, in this matter, as in many others, we must try to keep a happy medium. If you have just started to look for work, make every effort to choose the best option. He has more or less hold you in the main indicators: the duties, the amount of salary, location, moral and psychological climate in the team. Pre-tune to what is absolutely ideal option still will not, because something has to be sacrificed. If you are satisfied with the current work of all but the size of the salary, think about whether there is the possibility to achieve its increase. You can speak frankly on this subject with the head. For example, a teacher can ask to give him additional hours or part time library manager - ask for promotions, etc. If you are in good standing as a skilled and disciplined officer, authorities will almost certainly try to meet you. If you have firmly decided to change jobs to a better in material terms, do not rush! After all, there is no guarantee that the hastily chosen a new location would be better. First, look around, find out what the profession in the area where you live, are most popular and what their average market "value." Think about what exactly you want to do, what position to occupy, at what salary are applying for. And only then begin the search for a new job.
