I have been offered the role of anti abuse engineer at Google as a fresher. Should I take up this job if I want to pursue a career in software development or apply next year for the SDE role?

Doing one over the other involves some form of Cost-Benefit analysis which I leave you to consider.

But if you can somehow do both than that’s brilliant.

Work part time/full time at Google whilst still continuing your studies - if you start with this option in mind than I’m sure you can engineer a way to make it all happen. If you pass up your education and opt to go for the job - than just make DAMN sure you are excellent so you can progress rapidly through the ranks :slight_smile:

Otherwise if you are confident enough and get good grades reapply next year.

See what I mean about no ‘right option’.

Try do both. All at once :slight_smile:
