Working abroad is definitely good for your resumé, however I would recommend going for the 8k usd job.
If it is like kicking dead whales down the beach you can always look for a different one, and you can easily save up good cash to sustain yourself for a bit while going for better opportunities, besides, there might be avenues through the 8k/m company and the networking you will do there for better options later on.
I just wanna note that this thread might not be good for /cult/, and more of a /feels/ thing?
Maybe a mod could move it? I won't bump for this reason.
