50k In The Island Vs 60k In The Mainland by rasheylaw(m): 6:54pm On Jul 23, 2022
Good evening everyone.

Recently, My boss have to laid off all his staffs due to some issues in his business.

Last week, I got two jobs offers:

1. On the island (lekki); It is an outsourcing firm and I got the role of graphic designer but the pay is 50k, Monday - Friday (8:30am - 4:30pm).

2. On the mainland (Ikeja) : it is a store where they sell fashion items like jewelries and the likes. The role is social media manager but the way the boss explained the role, it is more of online sales person. The pay is 60k, Monday - Saturday (8am - 6pm).

The issues I am having:

1. Career Path: The island job looks promising because it is a large company , there might be a chance of self development or career growth but the mainland is just a store and I will probably be doing the same thing everytime.

2. Monthly expenses: I am currently staying on the island with my former boss which is a bit far from both places. And I calculated my monthly cost on transportation, it is 25-30k for both places.

Please advise me on which to choose. I have to resume for any of them by Monday

Thank you

Omo i still they managed till now I'm here in Island unless ur company provide accommodation, accommodation is a big problem in Island.
You flex here in Island if you got money simple.

Pros
Quiet vicinity
Always flexy
Easy to get job
Attractive salary depends on job
Not crowded

Cons
Too Expensive


Mainland is more affordable to live, so many things cheap including accommodation.

Prons
Affordable

Cons
Noisy vicinity
Poor salary
Over crowded

Talking from experienced. cheesy
