Please remember that when choosing a job, salary is not the only thing to consider. Salary is important but you also have to consider your skill and passion. Choose a job that you will enjoy regardless of the salary.
I believe on 'Follow your Passion' advise. I heard a variation of this quote from my doctor. She said 'Follow your passion and the money will follow'.
Ask yourself, if no one will pay you, will you still take that job? Will you still do your work even if there are no salary? If you can confidently answer YES then I congratulate you. You have found your passion.
If you are a fresh graduate or with less than one year experience, build your skill set first. There are many things that are not taught in school. Look for a company that will help you build your skillset effectively rather than a company that gives a hig salary only. If you have mastered your skill set, companies will find you and will give you irresistible offer!
