Job interview while preparing to leave

I'm an American citizen. I've lived overseas for 14 years, mostly in Japan. I recently worked on a US military base (SOFA sponsorship), but that job ended. After a lot of bad experiences, I don't have much reason to stay in Japan. I've spent 6 months applying for work in the US, but no answer. I have no friends in the US. If I go to the US, I'll just go to a hotel until my savings run out, and after that, I don't know what.

If you're SOFA, you have a grace period after your SOFA expires where you can legally stay in Japan. That grace period is about to end.

But, just the other day, I was called for an interview on a military base in Japan. The interview is scheduled after the expiration date.

I don't know what to do. Do I find a way to renew my visa and stick around for the interview, or just give up and risk returning to the US?
