Have an in-person interview next week. This may sound silly but do I shake hands with my interviewers 😅

For reference, COVID cases in Chicago are pretty high, but everyone in the office is fully vaccinated. Don’t want to come across as awkward or insulting.

Also as a follow up, I plan on wearing my mask as I enter the building, but will take it off IF everyone in the office isnt wearing AND it is appropriately spaced out.

Have an interview tomorrow for a job slightly outside my experience (coming from valuation in an accounting firm. Job is Portfolio Management Analyst) but it pays 12% more with 20-30% bonuses.

The recruiter said the team was impressed with my background and said I was "senior but willing to accept a (lower) salary" that was in their range. The salary is at the lower end of my range but it makes me feel like I should hold out for more. OTOH I'm afraid of missing the hiring boat. Help!
