I just graduated and I feel like I’m stuck. I have no idea what to do next (Ideally find a job) but I want to explore and learn skills only I have to pay my loans. I feel like getting a job now will force me to settle. Not sure what I’m looking for by posting on here but I felt like sharing how I feel.

What would you do other than get a job?

In a perfect world I would intern somewhere I’m passionate about working and learn the skills I’d need in that profession. Hopefully later get a job then get my masters degree.

After graduating? Get a job. The learning doesn’t stop once you’re full-time. That’s often when the training really starts.

I’d get a job. Something upwardly mobile that interests you.

Just got an offer for a Sr. AWS DevOps role at 145K, I will be working remotely 100% with maybe 5% travel, if any. No bonus with this company. I have over 8 years of DevOps and AWS, all AWS certs . Should I be asking for more $? Thoughts on the offer and how much more $ I should be asking for ? Current location is kinda irrelevant since I will be working remotely.
