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!
