I am an engineer of my company for three years and I do good in my job.And I am approved by the leadership. But nowadays my leader ask me if i like to be a sell manager.I think I am qualified to be a technician,but a technician can't earn more money and less opportunity to promote.A sell manager have more opportunity to promote and earn more money than a technician.And the selling can temper a man's ability and can have more social connections. But a technician also have more advantages.I can have more time with my wife.After some years when we have a baby,I can have more time to play with him or her.The family is important to me as well as my job.My friends,if you have these things,how do you choose from that?Be a sellman or a technician?

Dear oeguanghui, why do you want to be a salesperson ? I'm sure that in terms of people looking at your reputation, a technician is a much much better prospect. Especially when you become a specialist of something while as a salesperson, you need to sell items in which I dont' consider it fun. I won't ever trade my position of a technician to start as a salesperson even though it might earn you a bit more money.

The purpose of you having a job is for you to be able to raise your family well. To have better future for them. If you think that you can provide this things from simply being a technician (or an engineer)in your company, then stay on your current position. But if not then, you have to decide if being a salesperson would lift-up your standard of living and provide a better future for your family. you also have to balance working hours and family. For me, I would go for the promotion, everything can be arranged and adjust to give you enough time for your family.
