    Which promotion should I take?

    I have a dilemma.  There is a chance I could get a promotion very soon, that earns $500 more per month.  It's in a totally different department, and would be a totally new job for me.  However, in a few months my boss retires.  I have a chance at her job, with a $1500 a month raise.  I may not get it, since I am the least experienced for it, but have enough experience to do it.  Problem is, I hate the decisions made in the department I am in, and they may not change even with me in charge.  Or worse, if I don't get the job, I'll be stuck and could hate it more.  Which would you choose and why?

    I would go for the $500 a month job in the different department. It will give you a chance to show what you can do. It will give you a new area of work and it will still give you a chance to apply for your current boss's job when she retires, with more skills on your CV!

      The only catch is that if I take this new job, I won't be able to apply for my boss's job when she retires.  So I basically have to choose one or the other.
