Personally speaking, I will suggest my friend take the job, because working far away from his hometown means visiting different places, which will be beneficial to him for the following reasons.
First, living far away from his hometown can help open up his mind because he will have a chance to get in touch with different people and cultures, and therefore, to embrace many differences such as different values, beliefs, ideas, and lifestyles. This experience can not only make him become tolerant to difference, but also allow him to discover and live a life he feels comfortable with.
Also, visiting different places can enrich his experience, because he will see and contact with something new and different from his own society, making him share what he has gone through with others. Such experience will allow him to become outgoing and sociable and enable him to make more friends.
