Two interviews - I need advice please?!?
Ok so I have two job interviews after having not had one for 3 mnths since finishing uni :( Sooo hard to find a job these days for a young person! :( Anywho, so I have two interviews one tommorow and one the next day. The first one is for a full time job that pays pretty well but only on target earnings. You have to get people to sign up to something. This job has nothing to do with my career. The second one is for a functions/events company which is close to what i want to do in my career (I want to be a wedding/event planner, mostly weddings :P) I dunno what the pay is, but it's casual. However it also said they have opportunities for full time. Soo please help me what job should I take?? The first one on target earnings so doesn't that mean I'll have to sign up a certain amount of people before I get paid anything? What if no one wants to sign up? And the second one is casual well casual means you have to be flexible right? So I'm supposed to be available in short time? So then what else am I supposed to do the rest of my week if they want me at a moments notice for casual work? Help pleeease!!? Thank you everyone :-)

I would definitely take the job that is related to your career. Considering the first job sounds like a sales position and your compensation is based on closing deals, it will probably be high pressure and low compensation, especially at the beginning. In sales, there is always a learning curve, time to close the... More
