MAN CHOOSING BETWEEN 70K JOB THAT IS HIS DREAM OR 90K JOB WHICH PAYS MORE

[Admin hope you post this soon!] I started my job hunt after grad late this year to rest up and somehow I managed to land on two relatively attractive offer: (I wish I was humble bragging but I really am not. Do read through and let me know what you think!)

1. 90k PA, job scope that’s relatively boring and ded (imho) with a decent worklife balance (introduced by my friend) [relevant to my degree CS related. No its not in any of the big companies youre thinking about. Its not a 996 cs work job]

2. 70k PA, job scope similar to my childhood dream (a job where I get to travel frequently). Not relevant to my degree at all, not CS related. But a job I always romanticised about. Work life balance is not the best (Interviewer was upfront due to nature of job- calls and meetings across timezones)

In terms of prospect, both job have relatively good prospect [in-demand skills] but frankly, the first job probably more cause its a HIGH demand skill [cause CS bro. Yall chose the right course if you want some money]

Alot of my friends say just go for the first one. The 20k difference is a no brainer. 20k can bring me to multiple trips to difference places a year. And fact is. If I don’t like it there. Its probably easier to make the switch. And frankly. I don’t HATE the job. I’m more of neutral with it.

The 2nd job though is so much more relevant to my interest (think of it as a dream childhood job that ends up paying less than you thought it would). Always wanted to do travelling for a job. However, Its absolutely irrelevant to my field. And I may perhaps be romanticising the work as well since i was never in the industry (yet another reason why I have been cautioned to chose the first one instead. I may end up hating jt after a year and give up the lucrative first option). Traveling for work is very different from leisure. And once I enter this field, I will not touch CS at all (so if I stay too long here, it’s really goodbye to my cs degree LOL cause cant rmb jacksht)

Practically speaking, the first option just makes more sense… but the second option….is hard to come by. I’m supposed to respond by Monday for the 2nd option [the first option gave me 2 weeks to think about it whew. Great company honestly]. If only my dream job pays as much…….

But it doesn’t. So now I really don’t know what to choose. Prof Ben what would you advise? Fellow students, what would you do?
