Pay is only one aspect of how you’re rewarded at work. You might be surprised to discover that the learning opportunities, great relationships and sense of purpose and satisfaction are some of the most rewarding aspects of your job.
That is not to say pay is not important. And feeling like you’re not being paid fairly can be quite demotivating. Before you sign a contract, you need to make sure the pay you have been offered meets the national minimum wage.
