You have time to experiment now. If you don’t like, it you can do b-school to pivot back into private sector. I did it. So feel free to DM if you have other questions

It’s more important to pursue work that makes you fulfilled and happy.

As long as you can pay your bills and keep a roof over your head with the non-profit pay, I say make the leap! You’re getting in the area you’re passionate about then hopefully you can obtain better comp and titles as you progress.

Got an offer from Accenture but they have mentioned only fixed pay and not the salary breakup which is very strange because I have not had any such experience with any other company. On asking the HR, she said there are no deductions from this fixed pay apart from PF and the salary breakup would be given to you on the day of joining. Is this strange or common?
