i want a new job but I made the mistake of applying to every single job that I thought sounded cool and now I'm in the dilemma of getting to final stage for 3 jobs and having 1 job offer but i'm only 70% keen on.
1 - small start up only 5 ppl main office is abroad so they have a bigger than usual budget. would do a variety of job more 'agency' style campaigns like poster on public transport, tshirts, pop up advertising stops, sounds very fun i really want it and ive done a interview and then a test brief and made it to final round of skype interview with head office in 2 days.. this is the one i want the most but i might not get it. this place seemed needed more conceptual strategic design skills. The culture is obviously only 5 ppl so a tiny knit family they seemed really ethical and good at their jobs but introverted and care about what they do.
2 - 50 ppl tech start up for ai technology web design services for small businesses. i would do a variety of work from marketing to product design wireframing etc. they found that i lacked UX experience so offered me a job £7,000 BELOW my asking salary but agreed to send me on a £3,000 course in . the skill i lack and a promise of 'salary negotiation' after a probationary period. this place seems quite skill and stats powered and everyone is very techy and its slightly testosterone-fuelled. i know i would learn a lot here butthey are still experimental with all the tools htey use and processes.
3- 30 ppl tech gaming video app advertising start up. main office in USA but the creative studio is in UK and would be doing story boarding conceptual ideas for video advertising for games for other companies like King etc. the culture here is amazing everynoe is young (my age) into similar things. it's a perkoholic kind of place with free lunches and cool offices and casual environment. office dogs and fun teambuilding activities. i told them i had a job offer and they said they want to speed up the proccess... but its still a bit slower than the other 2. this place seems VERY similar to what i currently do now but in a diff sector. but the environment is the type of environment i would prefer but hte job role is less what i want to do.
I would need to reply to 2.... in 2 days after my final stage skye call with job 1.. do I accept job 2 and just see how the others pan out? Is this bad practise? What would you do? I dont know which one is the best as theyre all completely different job roles and i like drips and drabs from each job :/
I was wondering How do you choose the right job for you?
