I'd def take the job offer. A residency is great and everything but is in no way a guarantee of employment after you complete it. If the job offer is in the field you want, take it, it likely will not be there 6 months from now. I don't see how leaving a residency because you had a job offer from your desired field could hurt you... You should always be on the look out for a better gig, as the only person that's going to look out for you is yourself. Especially considering the over saturated job market now and in the future, you had best take the job and run.
