    Hello guys! As I stated before I accepted a promotion at the job that I previously worked while getting my undergraduate degree in Business Management. They offered me a $40,000 salary plus a quarterly bonus and an annual end of the year bonus. I make around $43,000 - $45,000 a year but I hate my job, and I hate the idiots that I am forced to manage. I have been aggressively applying for new jobs in more professional industries.

    Well status update I received two job offers on the same day and I have a final interview with another company on Thursday. They are all in completely different industries and all have different starting pays. I am going to list them all and would love to hear your advice on these industries. Thanks so much!

    Job Offer #1: Sales Associate - RSI Communities

    This company is a home building company similar to DR Horton. They sent me an email on Thursday offering me a full time hourly position at $18.27 (Roughly $37,500 a year) + $200 commision for every single house that gets sold in the community that I would help their sales counselors sell. It is somewhat of a sales job but I play a supporting role to the real estate agents. It is obviously in the housing industry which is great because I have always wanted to invest in rental properties and this would be a great outlet in learning how to do that profitably. The downside is I would work in a sales office with only one other person which is a bummer for me because I love working with a team of people. Also it seems to me that it is a women dominated environment and historically I have done better in male dominated work environments. Plus side is at $37,500 a year guaranteed it is the highest guaranteed income that I have received so far.

    Job Offer #2: Logistics Account Executive Trainee - Total Quality Logistics

    This is a 5 month inside sales development program with a logistics brokerage firm. I received a job offer from them on Friday literally the day after I received a job offer from RSI communities. They are offering $35,000 base salary OR commision whichever is higher however their is no commision oppurtunities during the 5 month training program. During the final interview with them I job shadowed with one account executive who had just completed the 5 month training program for one hour and he said he believed that he would be making more than his $35,000 base salary this year. After that job shadow I then was sent to job shadow with an account executive who was 6 months into his job after completing the 5 month sales development program. He was already in line to make $70,000 this year. After those two job shadows I had an hour long job interview with two sales managers. They offered me a spot in the training program the next day. Pros is that it is a very young work culture with a lot of oppurtunities to socialize. It is a chance to gain B2B sales experience and their is an unlimites earning potential here. Cons I am trading job stability for the POTENTIAL to earn a lot of money. The expectation is that I actually make more than my $35,000 base salary within my first year but its a sales job. If I don't meet my first annual quate I will be fired. Also I have absolutely no interest in logistics or freight at all but the company culture is awesome, and the oppurtunity to get business to business sales experience is amazing and something I can take with me!

    Potential Job Offer #3: Financial Advisor Trainee - Edward Jones

    Edward jones has a 9 step interview process to get into their renowned 9 month college graduate career development program for new financial advisors. I have done 8 steps so far and I am scheduled to do the last step on thursday in which I expect to get either an offer into their program or a denial letter within 48 hours of completing the last online exercise they have for me. They are a personal investment firm and I would be managing other people investments after completing their program. Their offer would be $35,000 during the 9 month program and then a 4 year supplemental salary system ($51,000 1st year - $28,000 last year) + commision with the expectation thay after I have been with them for 4 years I will have enough assets under management to no longer need a supplemental salary from them. Pros - this company has the highest earning potential out of all of them and is a fortune 500 company that has won awards for their training programs and has been listed as one of the best places to work multiple years in a row. Also they give their new financial advisors a lot of autonomy. I would get my own practice, set my own hours, and get my own Branch Office Administrator who would be working for me. Cons - their 9 month training program is at their corporate headquarters which is bum fuck nowhere. Also it is a door knocking sales job but the people who are succesful at Edward Jones are all making six figures. (I had to interview with two financial advisors in my area during my interview process so far)

    So there you have it, sorry that was so long. I have two great official job offers and I believe one on the way and I have to make a final decision very soon. They are all in different industries and would all take me to different places but the one thing I know is that I am way too good to be managing a shitty fucking restuarant! I can't wait to put my 2 weeks notice in I just have to decide which company I want to work for the most. Please let me know your advice and thanks again!

    A proper answer for you would require a thorough knowledge of those fields, and a lot more info about yourself. Your interests, abilities, history, long-term education & career goals, etc. It's also a risk to try to propose such choices for other people.
