I have over 20 YOE and have worked in NJ all of my career. I was just approached about a great position in NY. The position is offering 10- 40K plus ample overtime.
I’m concerned about the transition; not used to commuting or being in the office everyday for that matter. I’m currently working a very flexible hybrid schedule. My thoughts: 10K more not worth considering; 20K more I will listen; 40K more I will jump. Thoughts? Has anyone ever made this type of transition in their 40s?

Not quite the same but I moved from a fully remote position making 65k to a hybrid schedule making 72k then bumped over 100k about 8 months after starting (two raises and a promotion within that 8 months). Best move I ever made! Going from fully remote to hybrid was a challenge for me but definitely worth it. Take into account transportation costs or car maintenance and make sure whatever increase is worth it. Also, make sure there is room for growth in the position as the increase is great but would be better if there is potential for more over time. Good luck!
