So... I need some career advice.
I've recently received an offer to work in California, however not in the tech space. I've wanted to move to the states (and the tech hub) in the past, but the desire waned a bit in the past 2 years seeing how messed up they are... but the desire is still there. Being able to work along side brilliant tech mind was the dream. So the position kind of detract from that, but the location is the right place.
The position is something that I don't really like, tech marketing but I happen to have a knack for. And since the lead was from some family friend, bailing out after 2 years would damage my reputation in my human network. Refusing this position now would mean that I will never get another chance in the future.
The reason why I am a bit confused is because my life is going along fine and I am in the middle of pushing this one thing out. Having to make a decision of changing direction at the moment is giving me some stomach ache. I mean, I have been where I am for 2 years, I've once again started to build a social life. This would mean picking up and leaving again.
I am a bit inexperienced in dealing with this, so was hoping to hear some of you mensche can give me some clarifying thoughts.
