This may sound a weird at first as one usually looks for a job that increases his income; however, what would be the effects of accepting a job offer with lower salary, but results in a high net income?
For the sake of an example, let's say I live in Germany and get 2 job offers one from a company in Germany offering 80k Euros and the other from a company in USA offering 150k USD. Let's say I already own a house in Germany, have a car and as such my expenses will be greatly reduced leading to a higher net income.
Would rejecting a higher salary hurt my career somehow in the future?
This is of course assuming that all other factors aren't critical. I'm not comparing living in Germany to USA. I'm not comparing the sizes of the companies. I'm just interested to hear if one could lose something by passing an opportunity to have a higher number in his contract at the cost of the net income.
