Job stability is definitely more important.
Thanks for yr reply.
the contract is 1 year and given the scope of project, it might be extended.
The downside of the perm role is just that the pay is 30% lower compared to contract, which also means I am taking a significant paycut from my previous job. Even if I switch job next time, it will be hard to get back the old pay since the difference is big.
The contract pay is closer to my old pay.
I am close to 40. So itís a consideration between pay vs stability.
