your parents want the best for you and second best is not enough.<br />
you on the other hand want to get on with your life.<br />
what if you take the job and it changes your mind about your future.<br />
my advice would be to get as much experience as you can, remember a thing taught is not as good as a thing learned.<br />
oh and all this might be bullth1t because I'm a parent as well.
dont ask them for advice you are an adult now.
screw it, take that job! who cares what field it's in? (excluding illegal stuff) just take it, if you don't like it you can always quit
