Advice Urgently Needed: Should I Consider This Job If Given The Offer? by Nobody: 2:39pm On Apr 22, 2018
My fellow nairalanders, I'm in a dilemma at the moment. I presently work in a small company (one man business) with a ridiculously low pay, I can't even afford to save, no defined job description; I run all sorts of errands and yet, I still remain committed. And my boss, he never appreciates whatever you do, uses you as if you're not human, a chronic micromanager. So I wake up every morning feeling depressed and demotivated. But una know na, if I don't work, hunger will wire me and Bubu will call me lazy. grin
So recently, I went for an interview and I think I did well cos I was asked to come back tomorrow. During the course of the interview, the salary was mentioned and it's more than what I earn presently but the office is on the Island while I live on the mainland. So the t.fare will be much, even as high as what I earn at the moment. Which means I'll have little or nothing left with me after all the monthly expenses.
Now, I was asked to come tomorrow... should I go and hear what they wanna say? If the offer remains the same, should I reject or accept? I'm confused.
And I'm so so tired of my present job. No zeal, no motivation, nothing whatsoever.


Please push this to FP, I have less than 24hours to decide.

There’s nothing more terrible than a job that breaks you down emotionally. There’s so much advantage working on the island as against the mainland except of course for distance. But you didn’t tell us if this new job is also one-man business cos truth be told the average one man business in Nigeria is modern day slavery. I would advise that you pick up your new job and continue with them, alternatives may come up along the line that could enable you save. All the best man!

You better go and take that new job, with time you'll adjust either by moving closer to the island or getting a good deal of co-sharing an apartment on the island.

If both have equal future prospects i.e. job security and opportunities for progression, then you can consider the new one.

But how do you know the new boss won't be worse than the old one ?

My advice is to stop counting your chickens before they hatch and GET THE 2ND JOB FIRST.

There's a sweet feeling when you have 2 appointment letters in hand

I would like you to Weigh the present n pending before accepting that job offer.. Be sincere to yourself as you ponder over it.
* Does the job description suits your career goal?
* Is the compensation/ Salary good for a start?
* Are there Opportunities for career growth ?
* Working environment.
Since you still have something doing, don't just jump into any offer that you ll regret later.
All the best!

What do you guys call job sef?
Just something that will put food on your table or something you will grow on?
What future does been an errand boy hold for you?
How does it improve your CV?
Look at Job prospects and not how much you are making for now.
I hope it is not errand boy you are being offered in the new place.

Tough one here, I'll say you should still go for the interview tomorrow, weigh your options very well.

I dread working on the island I swear, those people who work on d island and live deep in the mainland (ikotun, igando, abule egba, egbeda axis are not human) the day i went for an interview on d island from mainland, woke up 4am, left home 5am, got back 10:30pm. I was asked to resume d job d next week,my broda, i run ooo.

So if u can cope with d distance and transport stress then it's okay
