Dont wanna be stuck in a rut!
i've just got a call that my job interview of last week friday was successful.the thing is the job is only R200.00 more of what im earning is perm,with no benefits,im currently temping. i dont know if i should take the job bcos it's perm or if i should just stay and keep on lookin for somethin better. im so confused right now it's not even funny.
One thing that makes me unsure is: the new job is target-oriented,what will happen if i dont reach my target every month.will i get fired and be jobless? what do i do?

Thanx in advance for ur advice.

It seems a bit unwise to have interviewed for the job before deciding whether you actually want it. Draw up a balance sheet of the advantages and disadvantages of each option --- permanent versus temping ( which is more secure ?) ; benefits -- are there any on either side ? And as to the targets -- are they reasonable ? Reachable ? How do they react if you don't reach them ? And could you keep the option of returning to temping if the new job didn't work out ?
