Hi! I need advice -
I have been interviewing for two jobs, both very good companies.
1) the first job is a completely different career move, not something I've ever thought about. the pay is very good. the work-life balance won't be too good and it will be stressful, but if i do good in this position - once i want to move around in the company, i will have a very high reference to make that happen. the role is extremely extremely fast paced, all interviewers told me that, so that is a bit intimidating.
2) another very good company, but this is a 6 month contract with possible (most likely) extension. the job is similar to what i do now, but i am looking to get out of. the pay is even better, the culture is very lax, the work-life balance will be very good, but it is a risk with only 6 month contract, at least to start.
What would you all do?
