Should I keep my current job or accept a recent offer from another company?

In mid-August, I accepted a sales position at a popular boot company opening up a store at a new local mall, which doesn't open until October 11. With that in cosideration, I accepted my current job as a front desk clerk at a hotel to have some money coming in. My current job pays 75 cents less than the position I accepted for the outlet mall, which is an obvious disadavantage. However, the advantage there is that since the hotel environment is so 'lax, I get to sneak in some study time for school since I'm a full time student. The advantage and disadvantage of the mall job are the exact opposite--more money, but more responsibility, and more than likely, no time to study. In conclusion, I was very excited about the mall job when I was offered the position, but I'm overridden with guilt for having to leave the hotel (in the event that it does happen) in such a short time working there and because my manager is very, very satisfied with my performance.

Write down pros and cons for both jobs, then decide on what would be the best choice for you. We all have different needs and wants, as well as future plans. So write them down and think it over to make a best decision for you.

Can you pay your bills with your current job? Seems it is better to stay where you are if you are able to get by

This one is easy. Stay with the hotel.

I assume you are not going to school to be a front desk clerk or a shoe salesman (although there is nothing wrong with either job), so you should stay at the hotel where you have some time to concentrate on what it is you are going to be doing in the future.
