5 career advice you should absolutely ignore

Career advice is cheap and many people actually think they are good at advising others about their occupation.
A career is an occupation of a profession that defines a significant part of your life and when seeking advice about this, you need to be careful because not all career advice is good.
Here are five bad pieces of advice you should absolutely ignore.

1. Take any salary you are offered
''You know there is no job anywhere and this one is probably the best you can get. Just take that small salary they offered you and as time goes on you can move on to a better job''.
This piece of advice seems good because the person giving it does not want you to be unemployed. Nevertheless, don't just accept any salary offer. The employers actually have a range and they expect you to negotiate your salary.

2. You might hate that job, but don't quit
This is probably the most negative career advice you can get. Don't let someone who does not know what you go through at work and how frustrating the job is advice you to stay in a job you despise.

3. Stay as long as you're comfortable with the job
No. If you really want to have a career you won't stay in a job because you are simply comfortable. Job satisfaction is also important. It is when you have this you grow and enjoy your career.

4. Just take a job for now even if you don't want it
Except you're very broke and you need money, accepting any job offer is absolutely a wrong career advice. A piece of advice like this will only leave you sad and unmotivated in the job.

5. Follow the money
One of the reasons you want a job and a career is to make money but the salary shouldn't be the only consideration when accepting or staying in a job. Money is not everything. If you are earning big but you are not happy with the job, you may need to consider another job. Don't follow the money at the expense of your happiness.
