Money

I received an email from LinkedIn a few weeks ago entitled, “Where you’ll earn most money”. The title of the email was a little annoying as I certainly don’t consider myself someone who changes jobs for the sake of getting more money…if I did, I doubt I’d have been in my current job so long!

Is money really what working is about?

Yes, money is what pays the bills and allows us to buy goods which help improve our lifestyle. However money, to me, isn’t the main reason I would take on a particular job or role. For me, the job has got to be something I feel I can do to the best of my ability, and it’s got be something where I can see how it’ll help others. Flexibility and benefits that go with a job are also high on my priority list.

I actually didn’t open that email from LinkedIn as I wasn’t intestered in where I’d earn more money. What are your drivers for a job?
