What will become of me?

I wish i were psychic, wish i could see into the future & see what would become of me. Right now i have a job that pays the bills (cant complain too much, cos some dont have jobs) .
I've been going on interviews here & there and its looks like i'll soon be offered a job @ a multi-national company. I dont know what to do! Do i give up my radio dj/presenter job & go in work in the corporate world? I know the multi-national will pay heck of a lot better BUT im not so sure i want to leave my present job.

I'd really like to work for MTV or E (THE ENTERTAINMENT STATION) .........I dont know what to do!!!!

My parents think the radio job is not a real job, they always say "Your mates are making millions! Buying shares and doing big things"

One of my friends thinks its " a waste of time".
BF thinks i should "Follow my heart & do what makes me happy"- I think his advice is the best!

However, how do i do what i like if what i like doesnt pay enough? Help!

Hey girl! First time on your blog.

I think you should pray about it. Then decide for yourself, which is more important to you: fulfilment from the job? Or the money? Then go for it. All the best!

Honey, i think you are putting others first before yourself here. Are thinking of a career change because u want to or because your folks want you to?.....'cuz to me, you sound like u want to 'cuz of what others think .
Granted everyone wants to make big bucks, but do you really want to wake up every morning and dread going to work because u hate your job? Now for some pple, they could care less about the job as long as there is money flowing in. If u are one of those people then i will say, go for the benjamins baby, otherwise follow your heart my dear, atleast you are gauranteed satisfaction even if the pay isn't so great.

hey.. thanks for stopping by. Tried to listen to you but I am unable to. Will try to figure it out. I say follow your heart. I was where you are a while ago when people said my choice to go into media was wack. I love that I stood my grounds and did what I was passionate about. Find a way to make your friends and family interested. Don't just be a dj shuffling one song or the other or reading the news script. Find creative ways to make people care about what you are doing and make yourself relevant to them. They'll be proud of you and will want to listen to you every time you come on.

Sweetie, its tough, you'd rather be yourself than someone people want you to be. You cant fit the image people think of you! Follow your heart, its your CAREER, so you know you have to make your decisions wisely. Do what you think is best for you, where you think the passion burns, that is where you'd get the comfort.
Goodluck with life

People come and go into your life, but your family is always going to be there. Now you may think this means that their opinions matter most, it's true but not about your job. I'm sure that your family has a bigger heart than you can imagine; they care about you more than you know. Instead of being greedy but selfless (in other words you're thinking about the money but you're using the family as an excuse), why don't you stay in the DJing business and make your parents proud by doing something in that area. I say this because money is not a need, it's a desire. You are probably fine living how you are now; just because you're not rolling in money, doesn't mean you're not happy. If you've made friends at your workplace and you enjoy being there, DON'T leave! You can be a blessing in their lives. I'm sure they'll appreciate you staying, when you even had the chance to leave. No one wants to be around people who only care about themselves, and people will see that in you.
To finish I'll say this, although you think that going to work in a corporation will make it seem like you're trying to please your family, the only person that will actually benefit from it is the little selfish voice in your head who's telling you to go for the money. Hope this helped, I've tried my best. I sincerely wish that you make the right decision.
