Offer to join a private firm with money & benefits that make sense. In a field that mildly interests me. I’m currently working at a not-for-profit. Is this the right time to make a change?

Give us more background like age and education and future goals. I think joining private for money is worth it

I would still go private and try to bang out student loans. Unless you are doing something right now which gives you a real purpose and something you have passion for. I’m at PWC and thought I want to do the consulting thing forever but think my passion is more in government foreign service and international relations. It’ll pay less than big 4 but it’s where my heart is

I don’t have a CS background in undergrad, but most prereqs are knocked out.

I had direct contact with a coworker on Wednesday. He called me Wednesday night that he tested positive for Covid. We were both wearing masks, but I accidentally drank from the same water bottle as him, so very direct. I stayed home Thursday & Friday because of this and got the rapid test an hour ago, which came back negative. I am reading contradictory information and am trying to determine if I am in the clear, or if it is possible that getting tested 48 hours post contact was too soon.
