This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to.

Any insight on what everyone else does?

Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst.

So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?

Maybe a dumb question, but I just bought my first new car and have a car payment. If I'm responsible about it, does it make sense to pay a lump sum (say 4 months worth) with my credit card that has an introductory APR promo less than 1% and then put my monthly car payments towards paying off the card? Anything I'm missing here? Is the only concern making sure I'm not doubling payments between the loan and card simultaneously?
