For the first time we'd have some spare cash and would be able to take decent holidays. Will I lose out in other ways? Money's not everything If the only reason you take the job is for the money, you will regret it. The best advice I give my university students is: Money is important; consider the money.

But if it comes down to the money, don't do it". I have heard from students years later who tell me they ignored my advice, took a job they didn't want because it paid more than the one they did, and had to quit because they couldn't stand it.

If you want the job for other reasons, fine. But never do it just for the money. Kathleen Dixon Donnelly, Erdington. Worthwhile payoffs Go for it!

Name supplied, via email. Cost is more than financial Working away from home will incur significantly higher costs - both financial and emotional. Financially, you will be paying for accommodation, as well as travel to and from home. Phone home nightly and your telecoms bill will soar. Your car insurer may demand higher premiums if they know you are driving long distances twice a week to a work-based address.

Food and cooking costs will rise for both you and the family you leave behind, while quality of diet declines. People on their own, or single adults with children, tend to cook less and eat more ready meals.

This may have long-term health implications; at the very least weight quickly gained is much harder to lose. If you only rent for three nights a week you will incur time costs in travel and packing and unpacking; stressful in itself after a hard week's work. You will sometimes forget vital items like the shaver, then spend time and money replacing them. On those long, lonely evenings you may be tempted to spend money, for example drinking, whereas you would have spent that time with the family at home.

Emotionally, the costs may be far higher. How strong will your marriage be seeing your partner for just three days, four nights, a week? A voice on a phone for a few minutes is no substitute for sitting on the sofa together all evening.
