It really depends on his current financial situation.

If he takes the job, yes, he'll have a paycheck, but that will cut into his time of researching newspapers, print, media, and internet for a job closer to what he had previously.

On the other hand, unless there's substantial savings in the bank and the market, he'll probably end up starving. In this case, taking the job would be the better choice.

Is the new job similar to the previous job? Is there opportunity for growth, rapid or not, and how long will it take for the person ro return to previous financial levels?

These are all questions posed to me when I was a headhunter/recruiter, just passing along some info for ya.

You know I just got my degree in finance last December and been going on interviews at least a couple times a month for the last 8 months and nothing has given. Heck, I went on 3 in 2 days last week. Went to a job fair Monday. But only in the week have I grown frustrated. I mean am a nice guy easy going but I know my sh**. But today I got an email from the career center saying that a bank has declined me for an interview (one that I actually wanted)and it actually ticked me off for the first time :mad: . I've ticked off that someone who only has seen my resume can do that. I understand that they can only interview so many people and I rather know the before anyones time is wasted. But I look back at the 2 out of the 3 interviews I had last and I want to know how I did. Let me know within a week not the 2 the interviewer say cause her hiring manager is on vaction. I'm tired of feeling like these people are controlling my fate but in way they do cause this being a waiter thing has grown old. :flame: Makes me want to join the armed forces for a job.

Sorry all, I just needed to vent.

DO you send a follow up letter or a phone call?

yeah perns is right.. if you didnt send a letter saying thank you for their time and consideration type bs they will probably hire the person who did. i know it sounds stupid but shit like that looks really good. my supervisor said she chose me over the other people because i sent a thank you letter. better to send one in the mail the day you had the interview then email too.

Actually, I do send a thank you letter after an interview. Even try to put a little personal touch in. Granted a thank you letter may not go out the same day but with in 36 hours.
