    At significantly reduced pay (about 30k/year less than I have been making), but its the works as far as benefits goes. It's working for a guy that I've worked for in the past and it'll hold me over, but I will be looking for a new job.

    I had a point in my career where I took a significant pay cut, but I ultimately learned a lot in that job and it positioned me to earn far more than I had been previously. Hopefully, you will find similar success after this hiccup!

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidWow, so may I ask what you do for work to learn how you accepted a 30K pay cut?


    Digital marketing...

    To be honest, I expected an increase by about that much... Unfortunately marketing isn't a big industry here in Utah.... (although web development does florish here quite a bit)...

    It should be some good experience in b2c, but I'm really looking to move to an agency, to get more experience with tools such as Eloqua, Pardot, and more advanced analytics.

    Don't let it get you down. A few years ago when I got laid off, my unemployment ran out, and I had to get a job ASAP. Any job. So I got hired at this one place doing low level computer support. It was a significant pay cut compared to my previous job. And it had crappy hours. But it did have medical benefits. Anyways, I was determined to find a better job. And after about 6 months, I did find a better one. Better pay, benefits, hours, and so on.

    Also, companies are less inclined to call people for interviews if they are unemployed. So now that you have a job, I think you've improved your chances of finding a better job out there. Good luck! icon_cool.gif
