Since my first job until I became a housewife, my occupation was a Sales co ordinator, to push computer, notebook and accessories sales. This job requirements is to hit the monthly goal sales which is not an easy job. Now I was wondering whether I should try to work a different job since I had quit working for ten years. Should I take up an Infant educare or Admin assistant job ? Or should I get the Sales co ordinator again ? What is your opinion ?

It is entirely up to you for which job you want to go. Your decision should be based on your choice and skills.

No sometimes it happens that you may not be able to get a desired job so in that case we should go for a job we get and then later on we may change it.

I have experience in sales but sick and tired and pressured over the Sales target. Furthermore salary is low, base on commission.

In my opinion you should search a job for sales coordinator first as you have an experience in it. If you are finding difficult to search a job with this profile then you may search for job with other profile.

oh, ten years, it's a long time. However, I think you could go outside and find a job. I would rather not be a housewife. It is also a tough job.

"if you have to work, take your heart with you so your work will create a good outcome." which means do not work if you no longer feel happy with the kind of work you are doing. By doing so, it will not only stress you out but will also result into an unsatisfactory outcome. Listen to what your heart tells you. Let your heart decide. If you are not happy then quit and leave your job. You have full control over it but always remember to have some job reservations before deciding to do so. All the best to you my friend =)

I know I'm no good with sales and kids so I'd probably go for the admin assistant job. But that's just me... You probably have other preferences... Or, if you like all three of them, then just go for all of them and see which one you'll be offered... Good luck!

I can say nothing, it's up to you to know what you prefer to do. I would not like to be a sales coordinator, I would prefer to be Admin assistant for sure.

I think doing sales is too much pressure since there is target to meet each month. Whereby, if you do admin assistant you only finish what you do, nothing like sales, as long it can get the job done. I have one at Viva Mall 92006469, its a engineering firm, you only get to answer calls and key in data.

@peachpurple Yes I can understand that Sales job is a very challenging job, time limit required to meet their sales target. After 10 years of work, I want to suggest that you go to other areas. You have suggested that Administration is the best option, I am sure you will get various duties, not sales target. All the best

@peachpurple Jobs which are not boring would mean those jobs which require you to solve problems and be faced with different scenarios. However, these jobs might be a problem since you will encounter difficult people.
