What do you do when you have a job, but you have been offered a job somewhere else that you concider your "Dream Job"

I have a friend who has a job that is not ft and there has been other small issues that seem to arise every day. She was just offered a position at what she considers to be her "dream job." She had actually applied there several time's even before she graduated. The down fall is that they are not offering her equal to more then she is already making. However it is closer and she can carpool with her husband. It is FT + benefits. She would be busier so she would be exhausted by the end of her day. What do you all think she should do?

  • If it's her dream job she should take it. FT & benefits are very rare these days. Not to mention savings in gas.

  • Either way she looks at it she will be making more $$ if she is only working PT right now and she can work FT and have benfits I would tell her to give her notice and take the "DREAM JOB". GL to her..

  • I would take it. There's more to life than an hourly wage.

  • Take it. Don't base career decisions strictly on money.....ever. She's wanted it for awhile, and now it's open to her. To slam the door shut over a small amount would be very stupid.

  • There is no such word as "concider".
