I've been interviewing for some jobs and there are two left that I like but I'm not sure which one to choose. The first one is with someone I know but the job..
...isn't all that well paying. The other pays more but it's with people I don't know. Are there any things I should look at when making my decision? Also, the one that pays more seems to be less in a hurry than the other one to hire me, but the company is better at the well-paying one too, so I really don't know what to do. Any advice would be appreciated.

you need to study the pros and cons carefuly and set your priorities right. so the one that will hire you first gets more points. however if after getting employed in a month or two the better paying job called you need to reanalyze this. also you mentioned that it is important for you to know people in the place you work in , if you can not work in the better paying one because you need to establish relationships from scratch that is also something to think about. then comes the money, best of luck

That's quite a dilemma. Have they both made you an offer? It's always better to go somewhere where you have a stronger connection (you know the people), but the money is also important. I would use this to negotiate for more money at the first firm, where you know the person. If they match it, then you'll have the best of both worlds
