Should I Take a Better Title or Better Pay?

Should I Take a Better Title or Better Pay?

Share

Dear CC: My job search has yielded two offers-one with a great title that, on the face of it, puts me in a different league, and another with "associate" attached that pays 20 percent more. Responsibilities are similar. Which do I take?

CC's people have an old saying: Nem di gelt. Take the money. The responsibilities are the key here, because on your next résumé and interview, you'll be stressing the duties you're performing, not the title. Most bosses know titles are "fluid"-aka BS-and what you do and what you're paid will demonstrate your higher level.
