NSS: I finally got a job offer here in Austin.
S: It pays less than what I'd like to start with. 50K being the median for CS grads and this job paying 45K. Also, offers no 401k matching. Finally, it's a web developer (PHP) position as opposed to the software engineering I would have prefered. It's a small company and the job is not very challenging so I'm afraid of career suicide.
Now, I'm torn because my only other lead right now is a 2nd interview up in Norwalk, Connecticut which I will be flying up for tomorrow morning. The Conn. company is much sweeter and more professional, I think, but my friends ALL live in Austin. The Austin company wants me to get back to them by Monday as well, so I'd have to get an offer from the Connecticut company pretty damn soon in order to turn down the position here. Ah, this is frustrating!
