While no one wants to earn a lower salary, these instances when you have to take a pay cut.

When looking for a job, you have an ideal salary in mind. The job market may offer lower than your expectations.
Instead of staying jobless, you can take a job offering less, and work on growing from there.
As the saying goes, ' half a loaf is better than none.'

2. You're after job satisfaction
