Received an offer from Company A, but it’s in an industry I don’t want to build my career in (mftg) and the role doesn’t exactly align with typical tax responsibilities I’m looking for to transfer over later - however the salary and benefits are really good. Waiting on Company B to give a decision (salary won’t be as high but it’s the exact industry (tech) and technical experience I want). Would you settle for a good job or wait it out for something that aligns more with career goals?
