Can you keep working part-time at this company while finishing your degree? If you're serious about working in AI - as in building model rather than just UX testing - you will definitely need an undergraduate degree and ideally a master's and/or doctorate as well. You'd also be able to make much more than $75k that way. If you can pick-up relevant part-time work or internships along the way, that will give you valuable experience and make you more attractive as a candidate for full-time roles after graduation.

Degree is definitely worth more and puts you in a better long term position

Depends on how badly you want to jump ship. Personally, I'd stay put and keep building your skills. Then you can really go for a bump in pay.

I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.

Finally, she said she's not going to process the profile with an almighty attitude. Such an arrogant tone from Big 4 HR. I wonder this MNCs have idiots as HRs
