Should You Pursue a Job For Love or Money?

happy signAh, it’s the million-dollar question. Should you pursue a job for love or for the money?

Here’s the thing: we don’t have the answer to that question since it’s all relative and it’s definitely all personal. It’s up to you to come up with the conclusion for yourself.

According to a piece on today’s New York Post, HR executive Gregory Giangrande writes:

“If you love the green — and work is just a means to an end — well, there’s your answer. But I’ve met very few people who aren’t doing what they love — but are earning a lot of money — who are truly happy in their careers.”

Keep in mind doing what you love and reaping monetary rewards aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive. “It’s all relative,” he says, “but typically, doing what you love — and doing it well — offers most people the opportunity to achieve financial rewards.”
