I live in Calgary and have a good job working for the health region. I've been here about 16 months and it is a real good job with competetive pay and great benefits. This is the 4th job I've had in 6 years. Yesterday I was headhunted my a major energy company headquartered here. Although there hasn't been a job offer yet, the discussions have started. If they were to make me an offer I know it would be for considerable more than I make now and hopefully the benefits would be equal or possibly better. Because they are oil and gas related, it is the kind of company that does large bonus cheques yearly...nice perk in my books.
My dilema is if I get an offer I don't know if I should take it or stick around here. I like it here plus I don't know how bad it looks to have had that many jobs in such a short period of time. On the other hand, I have a 3 year old and another baby on the way in September and my wife stays at home...so the extra money is surely needed. Part of me thinks it is a red hot market here right now, so many people are jumping around and finding an employer that is able to offer them more.
Any thoughts or advice?
