Yeah, no way given the cost of living. I'd need >100% raise from my small market to move to NYC. 80% COLA and 20% actual raise.

I'd take less if the position / team were a "dream job," but I'm assuming that's not the case.

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued

Currently at 85k base. I got an offer for a Corporate Strategy in industry for 120k base (trying to negotiate to 130). I need to sign the written offer in 3 biz days. I’m also interviewing for a PM role at a startup and was told I’m in the short list. Startup couldn’t give me any specifics because they are still interviewing but said they aren’t worried they can’t meet the Corporate Strategy offer. Can I sign the offer while waiting on the PM and leave for the PM role afterwards?
