Undecided Over Two Jobs Offers!!! Please Advice by victree007(m): 12:15pm On Jul 13, 2016
Hello everyone, My name is Victory and I don't know how to tell you this or what format to follow

On 31st May this year, a day after my birthday, I resigned from a mining company where I was working in Jos because working terms and conditions no longer gave me what I wanted in a job coupled with the fact that I was fed up with ONE MAN BUSINESS and promised myself not to work with any again.

Immediately I got home that day, I was excited to receive a mail inviting me for an interview with a multinational organization. To cut the long story short, I ended up doing interviews with three different companies within two weeks in Lagos and I resumed with one of them just last week.
Where I am now the pay is 100k per month for my position, accommodation, staff bus to and fro work daily with no other benefits for now, it is a one man business that is just starting up in Abeokuta and I am enjoying working with the company though the job is tasking and demanding but I am learning daily...

Just yesterday, one of the three companies called for me to resume this Friday in Lagos...Please find some benefits that come with the position below as I was told during the interview and from a source within the firm. Though the start up pay is half what I am getting in Abeokuta;
1. PENSION
2. INSURANCE
3. 13TH MONTH
4. TRAINING AND RETRAINING
5. CAREER GROWTH
6. JOB SECURITY
7. EXPOSURE
ABOVE ALL, IT IS A MULTINATIONAL ORGANIZATION

Now I have between now and tomorrow Thursday to either resign in Abeokuta or reject the offer in Lagos
Please I would like for moderators to help move this post to where it can be seen quickly for advise, thank you

A 'multinational' offering to pay 50K as start up in an expensive city like Lagos is probably not worth the stress, but what do I know? Not to talk of how expensive transportation & feeding are now. Perhaps if you state the name of the company, it would help people in giving you better suggestions.

If I were you though, I think I'll stick with the job at Abeokuta, while still searching for better opportunities assiduously. So I'll advise same for a few reasons:

First, Abeokuta is a cheaper city to live in compared to Lagos. You can save more living there. Even if things don't end up as auspicious as you'd expected, you could use savings accrued to invest in profitable ventures.

Also, being a precocious company, you stand a better chance to make notable contributions to organisational developmentā€”assuming your current employer is reasonable.

The ball is in your court anyway. Regardless your final resolve, I wish you all the best in your future endeavours!

@ OP, Pray to God concerning the two offers.

And please, Pick one and let them know that you have a nairalander that's also interested in the second offer.

Stay with the Abeokuta job, it looks like they have good staff welfare at heart.

Pension and Insurance are mandatory for all companies to pay, so your Abeokuta company will comply. 13th month is an end of year bonus your Abeokuta job can pay too.

50k for a job in Lagos is really bad. Stay in Abeokuta, living cost is lesser there.

Forget the Lagos job bro.

Congrats

Op, even if your house is opposite your office in Lagos,it will still be more stressful than working in Abeokuta. I live in neither cities but I can bet my right eye that Abeokuta is surer.

OP, some cogent advise has been given to you above and it will be of best interest you stick to the Abeokuta Job pending when a high paying job comes up in lagos with lot of benefits. Don't make a huge mistake bro. Aside the discouragement in salary which I half of what u are currently (50k) coupled with the juicy benefits as stated in the employment offer, you don't know how secured the job is. Some of these multinationals cannot b trusted hereby downsizing employees anyhow.

Prof Lalasticlala, can this thread grace FP for more advice. Thanks.

Do you believe in God?

Why don't you pray about it?

Psalm 37:5
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

He can never lead you astray.
