Naw. I'd do that anyway though if I were back in your shoes. You're still fresh enough that other companies would like to snap you up and can as if you were coming straight from college still. If you like the firm, then stay but do know if anything happens you got options.

I would listen to your counselor and start applying elsewhere.

Seriously? ^

Next year, focus less on the number of initiatives and pick 2 that you can knock out of the park.

Interesting. Let’s see if the uptick In cases continues to drive an uptick in hospitalizations and then in fatalities. Depends on how many of the cases are incidental or in very young people not prone to severe cases. But either way, look at the hospital capacity utilization figures! This is the untold story. Were we bending the curve to avoid unnecessary deaths due to overcrowded hospitals, or were we bending the curve to buy time for treatments and vaccine, or just to slow fatalities?
