We are all told to find our 'niche' in jobs and we will enjoy it to a point where it is no longer a hard task. That sounds great. But a niche is by its very nature rare, so often we have to take whatever is offered as an exchange of the pay-packet. Some people will prefer a job they like, regardless of the size of the wages; others opt for one that gives them the money to "live" fully after hours. What is your priority?

It sounds to me as if you took a big leap, and landed on your feet. Good on you Lisa Vollrath. That must have been a brave decision. Thanks for responding.
Hi Abdus Salaam, So, if I understand you correctly, you're saying that you travel midstream! You will accept something less than the 'perfect' job, but that is not bad, so long as you have enough pay, even if it is not top pay. Right or Wrong? Tks.
I am saying that I value (1) job satisfaction and (2) pleasant environment, more so than (3) a good salary [so as long as though I have enough pay, even if it is not top pay].
Interesting, and thanks for sharing your views. You too will weigh up the pros and cons for each opportunity. Not for you the highjump decision. There is no best way. The beauty of Q&A is the variety of responses. Do our backgrounds affect that?
It could be. Of course if I was working in a min wage job but still loved it, I would go for the make more money job
