I’m 20, and I’m graduating with a BS in software engineering. I got offered a very awesome job at a top software company and I got offered a really cool job at a startup in a big city, too. I want to be able to do both. Is there a way I can take the corporate job, and still keep the other one, like a side hustle? Is that doable?
How do I approach it/propose it to the startup?
I picked the corporate job in the Midwest because
1) It pays better
2) My family lives there
3) It was where I interned
but I don’t want to give up the other job because
1) It is a great culture fit
2) The big city is exciting
3) I think it will be a great chance for having great mentors
How do you think I should go about it?
