I'm already 26 but i still don't have any job experiences. When i graduated in College, I quickly got hired in a job that's accessible to my house and very related to the course that i finished which is BS Psychology but the salary is below minimum wage. There's another job offer that's quite far from our house but the salary is higher and it's not related to my course. I need to pay for the bills in our house alone because my sister can't find a job. So which one should I choose? Good job experience or a good salary?
Good Job Experience or Good Salary?

I always picked experience over pay. It paid off in the long run. Experience is a form of continuing education. Quality of experience is usually better than quantity (within reason).
I don't know about psychology, but in general employers tend to look for specific experience. Fresh out of college that's not going to be true. But once you get a few years under your belt they'll look for relevant experience. Some job ads specifically say "relevant" job experience. But they all want it.
Keep your eyes and ears open. Try to discover what's in demand and how many people qualify.0
if you have a Bachelors in psychology and someone is offering you a job that pays below minimum wage it's time to move on and maybe call the labor union because it's illegal also stop looking for a job and find a career2
I go for experience because it will lead to money later. I recently just left my job for a job at a start up. it pays a lot less but room for growth is there were at my old company it really isn't. somebody has to die, get fired and even then I hope that they don't bring in somebody else to replace them.1
1. good salary.
2. Don't assume your sisters obligations and don't support her.
3. Those are not your ONLY two choices. Why do women do this? [shrug]
4. Be willing to relocate.
5. Network, network, network
What do you hope to be doing in the future?
When you talk about 'good experience' do you mean a work you find interesting, or one that builds to what you want to do in the future?0
What do you mean below minimum wage? Minimum wage is exactly that - the minimum legal amount. How can you get paid less than that?0
If one job doesn't pay enough to live off then you really don't have a choice, now do you? Then again, it's not fair you should take a job you don't like to pay the bills for someone who sits around waiting for a job they really like.0
Really hard to give you suggestion.
But I think job is stably that is important.
Shitty superior can take you to the hell.0
Offer yourself at a higher salary to the one that you think is related, and if they don't increase their offer then go for the higher salary one.0
if you want to do anything remotely relevant in psychology as a career, you need a phd.0
beta stick to your stream based job.. cz that will help u later on.. if u choose money now you are screwing it up... work over dr for 6+ months and find another company in the same stream0
Money, i guess we are slaved to get money these days...0

Salary. You're still going to get experience - while earning a living. It may not be what you're qualified in, but it's experience all the same1
You shouldn't be payed below minimum wage. Especially if you're not solely providing for yourself. Talk to Labor Unions and get that higher paying job.1
The thing with a BS Psychology is that it is highly relevant to most jobs. I remember being told at our graduation to not expect things to go according to plan. Some people end up in sales or even in communications with a Psych degree. I say take what you can, the better paying job might even give you a new way of looking at yourself.0
How long have you been working at your current job? Good, well paying jobs are hard to find if you only have a bachelor's in psychology and you have bills to pay. Sometimes you have to be flexible.0
If your main concern is paying bills gotta follow the almighty dollar. It sucks but that light bill won't pay itself0
I want good salary1
