I'm posting this here since there are more IT professionals that could give the feedback that I'm looking for. I've got two companies that are interested in hiring me. 1 is out of state, the other is about 10 miles away. The out of state position would be as a systems admin for a small/medium company (responsible for servers, data storage, and escalated issues), the closer one has ~40 employees and I would be the IT department (i.e. responsible for everything). The one out of state requires monthly travel to locations in a 300 mile radius, the one that's closer requires occassional trips to Canaduh. Assuming pay and benefits are the same, which would likely yield the better experience and would look better to other companies down the line?
