Well actually I am talking about some job..about 6 hours ago,Callbox company just called me for my final interview for the job and I honestly don't want to attend because I don't have the interest or let just say I am not yet ready for it and I am still busy teaching with some kids but my problem is,my mom wants me to attend to it because yeah the salary is quiet good and I know she got some point about that but my problem is,do I need to work for the job that I really don't like? I don't know what to do actually i know this is only some simple problem but for me,it's a big deal and the interview is tomorrow..What do you think guys? I need a little bit advice..:-0 thanks..And have a nice day..:-0

Nothing ventured, nothing gained insulin! You have absolutely nothing to lose by going to the interview and it may turn out to be better than you expected. Worse case scenario is that the job is all you thought it would be so you decline it. Your Mum ends up happy that you went and you have had the experience of another interview up your belt which will help you be better prepared for when a more interesting one comes up!

Don't think i'm advising you,just take it as a suggestion from ur friend. Y don't you just go and attend the interview first. No harm right? Infact it will be an experience for you. I'd suggest you to go and attend. Just see if you like the work atmosphere. And what really makes you say that you don't like th job?? U'll know things only when you start working right. So,just attend,what come may Sometimes things we like will become so alienated and things that we don't becomes so close to heart!! All the best if u r going to attend!! The ball is in ur court Love & cheers

I say attend...it gives you more exposure and experience in interviewing. You may end up liking it...should they offer you the position and you truly don't want it; you can politely decline. No harm done.

Ok so I am going to answer this as a mom who always wants the best for her kids but also as a daughter who did NOT listen to all my mom's advice, however wise it may have been. First off, it sounds as if you actually are paying much more attention to your mom's advice than I ever did. Mom's can be pretty smart & I will admit that in most things, my mom was right. Still, I don't regret following my heart....I did what felt right to me at the time & I learned a lot. Had I listened to my mom, I may have always wondered if I did the right thing. Also, there is more to working than simply pulling in a paycheck....altho that is a consideration. You spend much of your life in the workforce and so if you are unhappy doing what you do, I think it would affect your life outside of work. If I were without work, I would take on ANY job and even a job i may hate just to support myself & children. If I had employment that I enjoyed I would not take on a job that I knew I'd be miserable in for any amount of money. I would advise you to stand up for yourself...don't go to the interview.

[i]Hi insulin, If you applied for that job, I guess it is ideal to attend but if you were just hunt by them and you really do not like to work there, it will not be good to force yourself since that is very stressful and less motivation from you! i hope you will be able to decide![/i]

If you don't like the job.Its better you don't attend the interview.If you go for a job.It should be a job where you are enjoying and earning at the same time.

i think why not have a try? of course, good salary is one quite important point! your mother thought is reasonable. you maybe change first idea when join this company. because you will get well know about company culture, process, policy and so on. you will be the very one for your team and get well along with each other. you can leave if really do not like this position or this company. value each chance beside you!

It is luckly for you to have chance to choice a job.But we have no chance to choice what to do or what not to do.In this inflation,my factory is planing to reduce six hundred workers in order to save expenses.I had been talked it will be 10 percent reduction in my wages.At last,if i was you,i dont need to think the question of incoming,i would choice the jod what i am interest in it.But ,if you like as me ,i gave your the advance is choicing the high salary.

since this is the final interview, i would suggest u to go ahead and complete the process. ultimately, u can choose to reject the offer if u are still not comfortable with it. there are many factors to consider in work and pay is only one of them. your interest is very important as this is what will keep your motivation going. your mom would not be the one attending work on your behalf daily and if u dislike your work, you would find it taxing and unenjoyable to go for work daily. just go the the interview, maybe u may find something interesting in their company which may just change your mind. you may also consider it as gaining experience from interviews...nowadays, many lack the exposure and experience of interviews and fall at this hurdle. so go and treat it as a learning. there can only be benefits and no harm apart from spending some of your time and travelling

it is tough call. But always you need to follow your own path. if you are not happy doiung it, why do it? but also consider your mother's points. if money is not at all importnat., then you can forego

it is really entirely up to you... if you really need a job, then i suggest that you come for the interview... especially nowadays is really hard to find a job... good luck in making the decision... taking care and have a nice day...

Hi, my friend, I sympathize with you very much at this state. I feel interest and salary can not campare to each other, but based on my personal point of view, I condiser interest involved your wrok is much more making a significant sense, since you can always entertain yourself during your working hours, it is certain if the work that you are interested in is worth a high salary, you will be fortunate. My friend, this is only my personal advice for your reference. Good luch to you!

hi insulin to do a job wellyou need to at least like it. Why wokr where you are uncomfortable and really do not like the job. I say forgo the interview. You dont need to work for a job that'you really dislike.
