One thing I keep having to remind myself is that career mobility is higher than ever. Have gotten several offers at this point from companies that I "kind of like", and have been holding out for the dream companies. But I should probably just take a solid offer elsewhere. It would give me a foundation to build up skills and experience, and continuously applying for jobs while having a solid job is probably a lot less stressful than needing the perfect job before I graduate my MS degree in 2 mo.

Very true!! I think we all pressure ourselves to take everything that comes our way but with the way the market is now...NOPE. life is too short! Gotta take the stuff you want and move on when it's not working out!

I mean if you can find something in the kind of like pile that you can learn to love, I agree. Finding somewhere you wouldn't hate to learn a few things for a few years can't hurt. Don't take something that won't make you happy though, you have the power!

Thanks for the input. Yeah, mainly my "kind of like" pile are large, non-tech legacy companies that offered me roles doing the type of thing I want. I can definitely learn a lot and have good benefits and WLB. It'll just be slower paced and less scrappy than I want to be. But I will get directly relevant, valuable experience I can leverage for a cooler role.

Which companies are you getting offers from? I agree with your decision to accept one instead of holding out for "dream companies."

Exxon!
