    What a silly question... lol at you students who think you will leave uni and get a 60k basic salary

    60k would be unreasonable, but I think expecting something along the lines of 10+k would not be? 20 hours a week at minimum wage is just over 6k...

    Anyway OP, if you need money then take it, you can still look for other jobs.

    Still more than JSA with the added bonus of getting work experience and not having to put current status as unemployed on job applications.

    I've come out of university and looking for a job. I've been offered this job but should i take it? the pay is poor and hours are not great....

    Although, I have very little experience ( just many qualifications) and could do with the money as of now, do with the experience and believe it will maybe benefit me in the future (im not planning on doing this job forever or long at all)

    Should I accept it and hopefully it'll lead to opening up doors in the future + experience or reject it because poor pay + hours? It'll also give me a chance to improve my confidence and meet new people i suppose.

    What do I do??????????????

    thanks.

    'Telesales & Bookings' + Commission is the job btw!
    Hi there,

    Since you have very little experience this job will help you to gain some experience at the same time since you will be a part of an organization and work supposedly as a part of a team this will allow other companies to access your organization skills and determine if you are a team player when you apply for any jobs in the future. You have the answer to your question since now experience matters pay must not be your priority but then its my personal opinion it really depends on how you look at the situation.
