Would you quit your job for a pay rise of $300 .......

I know of people who do as every pay rise counts where stuff has become increasingly more expensive. Switching jobs regularly sort of ensure a slight increase in pay. But does it justify the inconvenience of moving on so regularly especially when "a rolling stone gathers no moss".

Depends. What is the job scope of the new job? Expectation of you? What is the working culture like thou this can be verify only after starting work? If the job scope and expectation sucks, I won't consider switching unless the pay increase is substantial.

thanks sjlskl, thanks for your response. Yup, a number of considerations and much anxiety too. Definitely only for a relatively big jump if there is no major push factor in the current job.

When changing jobs, I think it involves both the pull and the push factors. Pull factors would include pay increment, a nice superior and nice working environment in the new place, career advancement, even maybe convenience in transport. Push factors, maybe a nasty boss, evil colleagues , low pay etc The $300 increase is just one pull factor here. When making major decisions like this, I think it would be wise to consider all factors first.
