Noticed this even on multiple team calls, you keep speaking in Hindi as though you were educated in Hindi and don’t know English & if we speak in our mother tongue with a colleague you start making fun of us. ZS surely looks intro inclusion well.

My dream has always been to be in humanitarian crisis management.

When I trained, it turned out that any of the entry level opportunities basically required me to do at least two years of unpaid internships. I couldn't afford that back then, so I went into consulting instead.

I've now got an offer to do it. It's just: it, literally, pays 100k less pa than what I am making at the moment. I could live off that. I'd be alright, even. But it wouldn't be what I'm used to.

Should I?
