Speaking

Firstly I think the new job offers me a higher position in the company. That would be a good opportunity to increase my ability to run a business in a company. Second, I think the salary is also pretty good, which is very important for me because I have to raise my family and my kids. Last but not least I think the jobs gives an opportunity to start a new career. CFO is a very important role in a company. There are more companies listed in the stock market in China than before so all of them need a great CFO to help them run their business. So if I take this job I think I can be more valuable / popular (marketable) in the future. Even if I quit this new job in the future, I can easily find another job.
