I received two job offers 馃槏

Doesn鈥檛 it feel good when you get to choose ?
One job offer is as a SEO consultant and the other one is as a Media Buyer.
I bet you have no idea what those terms mean. It鈥檚 just digital marketing.

Both jobs have cons and pros, one pays better than the other, one is dog friendly, one has less commute, Etc.

Have you ever faced a similar situation ? What did you end up choosing ?

Both jobs seem completely reasonable. Media Buying seems a little more interesting but I have a bias over how SEO has ruined search engines lol

The question will come down to what's important to you.

Pay? Stability? Benefits? Work culture? Are they remote or in-office? Etc.

@CountScrofula I will go for Media Buyer. My gut tells me to pick them. 鈽猴笍

@Strawbsy Hell yeah, it's nice to be appreciated. Good luck with the new job!!

@CountScrofula Thank you 馃ス
Yes! I ended up choosing the one with the best hours + opportunity for development and I don't regret it. Good luck and congrats!
What's your long term goal? SEO and media buying may converge, at some point, at the top, but in the short to mid term, they take divergent paths.

Less commute is good, but companies move, especially "Agencies", and people move as well. So, keep that in mind.

@Northwest My long term goal is to save enough to build my own SEO/Paid Media agency. I need both skills !

I got a choice of two promotions and it was around Christmas so it was pretty sweet!

@JimboSaturn Aw, that鈥檚 the best

Congratulations. I`d be more leaning toward the dog friendly one, but that is just me.

Less commute the best option
