Re: Re: Dilemma – Please Help!!
As the saying goes, a prophet is never appreciated in his (her) own country.
I’d be inclined to think that it can do you no harm to go, and that in fact it might do you much good in the longer run. The only problem might be, as you say, the development climate here in 5 years. Still, five years worth of experience in two different planning systems should make you eminently suitable for a cushy local authority job on your return, when you can settle into a nice pensionable position and dine out on your stories of foreign adventures over extended coffee breaks for the rest of your working life.;)
Good luck with the decision.
