I am really struggling and need you to show me the light.
I have an unattractive background: engineering education, 4yrs exp with 3 companies! Covering 3 different fields. When I was in engineering, I thought I could do better in non-technical role. Then I shifted to banking. Now I am in marketing.
Even though my background is not attractive because of frequent job changes, I recently got two offers. One is a marketing officer role in a big insurance firm, salary is almost 40% higher than my existing salary, my task there will be quite routine - preparing marketing materials, product summary etc. To be honest, I am not excited to those except the salary.
The second offer is a business consulting firm with offices in 30 countries, staff number about 200. The pay is only SLIGHTLY better than my existing job. However, I feel excited about the tasks which include market research and helping company on market entry here in Malaysia.
I remember M&M said never accept an offer because of money. That keeps me away from the insurance firm.
My heart calls me to accept the business consulting offer. But I am hesitating because of the low pay. I though most consulting firms offering salary higher than market level. And they have a tiny office here (only 10ppl).
What will you consider if you were me.
