Caveats: FB comp is $210k, consulting is 180k, being 6 hours away from family is almost a dealbreaker, and FB is a much better resume signaling name. What would you do?

We are basically back to where we were at start of September. Sell off was supposedly due to high tech valuations. Tech earnings are end of month and most felt the bar was set pretty low last quarter due to covid. Do you think earnings will cause another sell off?
