I have an offer as a new grad in the specialty I want at a top 3 hospital, but the location is subpar. I've always wanted to live in a big city (NYC) and it's crushing me that I'm not moving to one.

Should I stick it out for one or two years - would just one year look bad? Or should I just look for a new grad job in NYC? I've heard it's extremely competitive to get a new grad job there.

Big city jobs as a new grad are hard to come by-especially NYC, LA, other large cities-because everyone wants to work there.  Take the job, get the experience, you can move in the future!

Your likelihood of getting a job in NYC is slim to none as a new grad. Take the job you have been offered then regroup when you are experienced enough to be appealing to a wider net of employers.
