Debt With Job I Like, or Save Money In Job I Hate?

Dear Experts, I've been in my new job for 3 months. I like the work, but the pay is really low. A couple of times, I've had to use my credit card to pay bills and I'm worried I'm falling into debt. I just heard about another job that pays a lot more. My friend works there and can get me an interview. However, the work doesn't sound as exciting - in fact, in sounds pretty terrible. But, it would give me enough money to live. Should I try to get the job so I don't keep going into debt? My friend says it's pretty easy to get hired. Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#244 Mobilize active search for position you'd enjoy/pays more. Path of least resistance/easy job not a winner. (@keppie_careers) Q#244 Don't perpetuate debt. Interview for job 2 get facts 1st-hand; continue job-search/networking. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#244 Just wanted to agree with @jtodonnell 100%. (@heatherhuhman) Q#244 Keep job & find PT job to avoid debt. DON'T take job you don't like. You'll regret it & won't last. (@jtodonnell) Q#244 I would try a different approach and try cutting your expenses to stay in the job you like. Working a bad job is no fun. (@gradversity) Q#244 Avoid taking a job just 4 money since u are already working. Better 2 talk 2 curr employer abt oppt instead. (@kgrantcareers) Q#244 Talk w/ current boss abt situation.

(@juliaerickson) Q#244 Never work in a job you hate only for the money. Short-term is okay, but not worth it in long run.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.
