If you have two choices,

1: you take a job that pays quite OK, OK means: it allows you to go to holiday twice a year, rent TVB-series, have fast internet, go out once a week etc

2: you take a job that you REALLY REALLY likes to do, but it pays very bad. In fact, you barely have enough money to pay your rent. DOn't even think about internet or renting video's. Holiday's out of the question.

Which job would you take?

I think I'll still take the first job. It's all about money... not for now, but sure will be for later.

i'll definitely take the first one......i mean the average person spend more time away from work than at it.....if you choose the second one, you might be enjoying you work.....but nothing else cause you have no money to pursue anything you like

I will take the first job....I need money to support myself...when I earn enough money...then I'll look for another job that combines both of them....a job that I love to do and pays really well....

i would probably take the field that pays more first. then, after i've made enough money to support me for a few more years, i'll switch over to the one that i actually enjoy doing.

I'd rather get a job I like. My current job sucks like sh*t and everytime I leave work I feel so damn stressed then before I go to work.

Second choice. As long as I enjoy my job and able to pay the rent and stuff, I'm okay. :D

Uhm is there really any job out there that someone likes.. that doesn't have a high pay? I think this question is sort of dumb and I'm just expressing my opinion. Anyways.. I guess I'd take the job that is OKAY.

Probably the first one, because the second one sounds like I have barely enough... And I would probably want a more easygoing life; Fun, and money to do stuff and just a normal pay job.
But the second one, I would probably like the occupation better, but then I would be struggling to pay off the rent and stuff, right?
So probably the first one :)

I think you've given options so as to direct everyone to choose the first one.

I think I would choose the second one, because researcher says that you are more likely to get promoted faster when you are doing a job that you like.

Hard to say, The options are given too simple, becoz I won't take the job,even with good money,if I'll be under pressure of my boss and I can't be who I am/ or be creative, but I totally agree I'll look for a job that can pay my rent :lol?:

well, it depends
if the job with less money that i like also equips me with skills that will allow me to earn MORE money in the future, i'd take that one.. if not, i'll slog on with the one that pays more ^_^

I would take the first option. It doesn't really matter if the job bores me out .. I'll grow to like it eventually lol. I think it's the money that matters ..

Of course I would take the first job given those conditons. You have to ask yourself no matter how much you like your job can you really be happy having to worry about ends meat every month. I think a much more interesting question to ask would be would you choose a job you love but income is pretty average you can get by alright but definately no mercedes, big house, or top of the line home theater system vs. a job you hate but you can afford practically anything you want. I would choose the job I love because i'm doing every day for 40-50 years.

My take is that earn as much as you can while you're young (ie Option 1) and then when you've earned enough, go for Option 2.

Definitely the first one.... need $$ first
life is so realistic.... no $$ no dreams... so earn $$ first....
after you save enough, you may able to pursue your dreams in later years!

i pik #3...a job that pays good and that i like


i agree. we all like to have both but you need money to survive. I would do whatever i need to do to make money and live a decent life...then when you've made enuf, then do whatever you want to do.

I'll take the first choice, but in reality, hardly do you have two choices. Even if there is a choice, I think money is more important as of now. After all, as a student, I am studying for the job I want in the future.

it depends what stage of life you are in... if you are just starting out in the workforce, then obviously you would take a job that pays OK, get the money, and then slowly look for a job the you like and pays well. If you have been in the workforce for a few years, like myself, you would probably want a job that you like .... you need to be determined and enjoy your work. it is a drag going to work when you completely despise the job. it gets kinda boring.
