Talk to some commercial SM and PPDs should be easy enough of they are staffing. Talk to supportive Federal peeps to see if they can help the transition, I had a friend orchestrate a move in about a month, she stayed in Fed though.

What kinds of questions can I ask to help me figure out if the programming (for senior developer) at a new job will 1. be interesting 2. advance me professionally? At this point this is the main deciding factor between multiple competing offers and I don't know how to get a good, honest sense (everyone and their pet fish claims to be "cutting edge" etc etc).

I’m starting a new job today after taking 2 months off in between. Did I miss anything while I was gone? I feel like I’ve forgot everything 🤣

Also, for anyone on the fence about taking time of between jobs, if you can afford it absolutely do it. I feel like we get use to the grind day in and day out. But after unplugging for awhile and coming back the negativity really jumped out to me. You all could use a break!
