What is more important the salary or the title?
The reality is that the work you're doing and the pay you're getting are much more important. A job title doesn't put food on the table or put money in your bank account. And if a company offers you a job title that sounds odd, you can easily put a more appropriate title on your resume and LinkedIn profile.
Should I accept a lower salary?
If you've always envisioned yourself in a certain role or working for a particular company, it's worth taking the job even if the salary is less than your current position. Sometimes job seekers may be willing to take a pay cut because they can't find a job that pays what they used to earn.
How much do job titles matter?
Your job title will almost always affect how much money you make. However, as an indication of the importance of job titles, many people would rather have a better title than a bigger salary. One study found that 70% of respondents would take a better job title for more money, up to $10,000 less!
