You couldn’t have picked a worse time, IMO

Well outside of the crisis time. Not trying to bust a move right now.

Honestly run. If you don’t want to do AML or insurance claims for Natural disaster relief .... RUN 100% in the opposite direction.

@EY2- something more niche than Forensics. Not going to answer because it will trace back to me.
