How often should you be interviewing for other roles even if you like your job? I somewhat enjoy my job right now but I don’t plan on staying for more than 3-5 years.

Never hurts to interview and see what’s out there. You never know what avenues of opportunity will pop up.

Don’t interview until you know you want to leave.

I interview once or twice a year to learn what are other people doing/looking for.

It tells me if my skillset is in-demand or if I need to learn something new. It also tells me what I need to be training my team to do and learn.

Essentially, it is my way of keeping tabs on the market. I also read a lot of job descriptions to see what's out there.

Once in a while I hear an offer that is valuing me at +40% above my current salary, that's also when I know I'm underpaid and it is time to leave whether I like it or not.

Great question. In my view, one should always be ready. That may not mean actively interviewing. But being able to, being ready, is recommended.

Take conversations because you never know if the door that opens up to you might be that one you want to walk through next. Opportunities come and go, sometimes it's about being at the right time and place even if the current situation is great. You're not hurting anyone for simply exploring. Knowledge is power, you can make the choice to make the move or not after.

Does anyone has the newest insight of how long the virus can last on different surfaces? I used this which is one of the only few that tells you about different surfaces. But this implies that for example your grocery bags and food packaging is not “100% safe or coronavirus free until after 3 days, and touching those surfaces could cross contaminate other things in your house, ultimately making people more likely to get the virus into their bodies. What’s your take on this?
