When choosing a job, the salary is the most important consideration. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Many people believe that salary is one of the most indispensable factors when seeking a job. However, I completely disagree that salary is the most important part of choosing a job. Job satisfaction and career growth are equally key aspects of the job to be considered. My point of view will be proven in following paragraphs with more details.
When looking for a job most people have a tendency to prefer job satisfaction to the salary. Job satisfaction includes work-life balance, vacation, quality work. Studies show that job satisfaction improves human happiness and well-being. Take, for instance, an individual is in a low-paid job will be happier than the person making a lucrative income but constantly going through extreme stress and pressure at a workplace. Thus, job satisfaction should be considered as a crucial point. When making a choice between jobs.
In addition, when it comes to selecting a job, job seekers also believe that career growth is an equally important factor. Some points can be realized such as promotions, new skills, job experience are some of the parts of career growth. People tend to give importance to these qualities. A good example is a high income job can be only claimed if a person is holding a certain level of position in an organization, thus, it becomes essential for people to be considerate about this career growth aspect also.
As shown above, I totally disregard the salary aspect of a job. In my view, job satisfaction and career growth should be seen as two of the main aspects while making a job selection.
