Help! Two offers: one for a mgr at big4, limited travel. City I’ve always wanted to live in close to family. Other is for my dream job in a city I don’t really know. I keep going back and forth.

Dream job, you can always travel back to family. You can’t travel away from a bad job. Would the dream job provide better WLB, less travel, better COL? Etc.

Dream job hands down. At least if you mean dream job the way I do. I’d have so many what ifs looking back if I passed on MY “dream job”

Is there like a huge pay disparity or something? Why not dream job? It's your dream job...

The job is a dream, the city it’s located in, not so much.

Spend time with family. Don’t underestimate that.

Take the dream job! You can always go back to your city and family

Can you name the two cities

I've lived in many cities. Liking the city and enjoying things there is a choice.

True but my dream job is more like a dream role. Learned today i can’t get a work from home day. Hour commute each way. Leaning towards the other one now.

Or move closer to the job?

For reasons too complex and personally identifying to go into on this app, that isn’t possible :).

ok, I'd lean toward job, but I don't think there is a right answer. Good luck.
