Is a a job in sales worth it?
I have just graduated in Media and Drama (Laugh now if you want) from Uni. I had an interview for a Media Sales job (selling advert space on websites) last week and they've asked me in again. The money is good, 19k, with up to 30k if all targets are reached My real passion is radio broadcasting, but I feel I need to make some good money first. Is this a good career move for money purposes?
