Which Of These Jobs Should I Take? by caridi(f): 5:27am On Jan 15, 2019
I just got two jobs, they both pay same salary (50k). One as a teacher and the other one as a procurement officer for a company's cafeteria ( I will go to the market and buy them food ingredients like tomato, pepper, yam, meat etc). I'm really confused as to which of these jobs to take. Pls guys I need your advice on which to go for

Find out the perks about the procurement officer's job.
And again, what is your career goal in life?
Teaching or Office jobs?
That will help you too.

Normally, I just take the job that pays higher.... that's y this one is really confusing. I have experience in teaching but its not something I really like. The procurement on the other hand, I wonder what it will b like....

That is why you should make some little findings about it.
If you are not so keen about making teaching as a career and comfortable enough to go through all the hustle lifestyle at Mile 12 market, then go for the latter.
All the best.

Teaching. You would have more time for yourself after school. But procurement, if anything lost or no complete, na trouble. In cafeteria, you would be at work till in the evening. School, 2 sharp. You don dey go house

We actually won't decide for you as you will be the one to call the final shot.

Normally, pay is your tie breaker. You need need to look at something that will tilt the decision in favour of another.

Why don't you draw up a table and list the pros cons of choosing either route?

Your table could could be based on:

1. Work life balance

Work–life balance is the term used to describe the balance that an individual needs between time allocated for work and other aspects of life. Areas of life other than work-life can be, but not limited to personal interests, family and social or leisure activities. Some jobs don't give you the right balance cos you might be getting well paid but then your personal and family lives are suffering.

2. Working conditions

Appreciation for your work (happiness on the job)
Good relationships with colleagues
Good relationships with superiors
Company's financial stability
Learning and career development
Job security
Attractive fixed salary (in the long run)
Interesting job content
Company values

3. Extra benefits like medical, pension etc

With these you will reach an unbiased and logical decision else you will be confused with differing opinions.

Good luck mate.

Go for procurement because if you are good at bargaining, extra cash will always follow you everyday.

Don't listen to this, it is stealing and not only would it get you sacked, it would dent your professional reputation.

As regards your question, since you already stated you do not fancy teaching, I'll advise you take the procurement job. Why? It offers a better prospect of career advancement. Almost every organisation has a procurement department/unit and the experience you garnered during your time on this job will propel you into a bigger one.
I'll advise you give your best during this job and learn as much as possible. Few years from now, you could be the procurement manager or supply chain manager of a big firm.

I cannot influence your final decision but you cannot go wrong with the procurement job. There are more opportunities for career growth in the field of procurement and supply chain management.

All the best in your endeavours.

Wrong!

What you have suggested is that she cut corners to enrich herself.


You are one of the reasons foreigners do not trust Nigerians with anything related to money.

@caridi,


ignore those who are suggesting that you can cut corners to make money if you choose the procurement job.


Being dishonest will cripple your career and reputation fast.


Go for the procurement job because it is very marketable and has opportunities for career growth.
