I think if you can financially afford it you should follow your dreams and do something you enjoy. I would take the job if I were you.

Think of the long term picture. Where will your current job have you in 5 years’ time? Where would the new job leave you in 5 years’ time?

I’m guessing, by the sound of your post, that if you stay then in 5 years’ time you’ll still be bored and in the same place…

Easy, take it. You will make more money in the long run at a job you love because you will be personally motivated to excel.

Could you try to negotiate rolling over your 401K from the other job to allow you to start theirs sooner? You don’t lose money you put in a 401K so you would still have the one from the other job if you can’t roll it and you can always contribute to one separately and just wont have a match if one is offered.

While you’ll be missing out on your current employer’s contributions to your 401k, you can still save for retirement! I think if this is what you want to do and you will be happier, then you should take it!

EmieBee4:  Take it! I’m jealous! My dad has always been a really successful engineer/business owner, and someone I always looked up to big time when it came to my future. And, his advice to me my entire life has always been that you’ve only truly “made it” when you find a way to make a living, while doing what you love to do.

Definitely take the new job! If you’re financially stable, there’s no reason not to go after what makes you happy.

Take it! Life is too short to be in a career that is leading nowhere and that you don’t like.
