Would you recommend I take a project mgmt role at Meta under a 9 month contract for 60/hr or stay at a role that has potential with nearly no possibility of getting laid off? My fear is that the economy gets worse and I’m stuck after the 9 months.

Current comp is 40/hr. I could probably get a promotion around Dec 2022-April 2023 bringing my comp to around $100k salary (potentially more). I’m 24, 4 YOE, and this contract would be with Collabera with Meta as the client.

Met a CIO of a VC firm for black beauty brands (like my own brand) who was interested in recruiting me as a venture associate - I would directly be working with her and a contracted finance team for due diligence comp analysis etc. after calling her she said they’d want to do a 90 day project before fully hiring me for the role. The thing is its also during the cycle of other jobs like MBB that I was also hoping to apply for. Should I take the 90 day paid project is that common practice in VC?

Accepted an offer, and after I put in my notice my current employer offered to have me fully remote.

The new job is client service industry and more demanding than my current job. The daily commute to the office is 20mins+ one way or 35mins+ with traffic. I also have a 1yo son who is currently on waitlist for daycare (hopefully to enroll him in July/Aug).

What would you do?
If you accept the offer to be fully remote at current job, how would you inform the new job about your decision?
Thanks!
