I just turned 27 and just recently started at a job which provides satisfactory, but feel somewhat personally lost. So I finished my undergrad in May of last year and started a job a few months back as an Information Analyst at a table wine marketing firm. The pay is avg for a n00b, no benefits, no 401k, etc because I was hired by a headhunting firm. These few months at the job have felt like years and I personally don't feel the work I do is very useful or helpful. Seems like just tedious work which doesn't get noticed. But i've grown to like the people there and it is convenient from where I live. Not to mention the firm is located in a very nice area (San Francisco). I know what I want to be, but feel like that road ahead is very difficult and requires a lot of effort. I am working towards it, but the job I currently hold doesn't provide any relevant experience into the field I want to be in (finance). Just last week my folks networked me with a job offering at a small investment firm who is looking to hire a financial advisor/analyst. I am going in for an interview this coming Thursday to find out more. My problem is, I'm somewhat attached to my current job because my boss just started to give me more responsibilities exposing me to new things and I'm somewhat settled in. And the firm is somewhat large. But this new job is with a very small firm which I know for sure won't be as much fun on a social basis. Also, I'm quite certain the new job will be more stressful, but will probably pay more and place me in a permanent position. I'm having a bit of mixed feelings.
