So we are also planning to reduce our office space in 2024. Going from two floors to one. I’ll be losing my closed-door office, which I’m bummed about. And yes, I’m also kind of in that boat. I have good benefits, usually excellent work/life balance, a lot of PTO (omg the PTO here), flexibility, a boss I work well with. My job isn’t soul-crushing nor am I burned out from being overworked. I can afford my hobbies and travel (my truest love). I absolutely hate hustle culture and The Grind. We generally have very low turnover and I know exactly why. I’m open to something new, but any job search has been fairly passive, at least for now. Even the job I was a finalist for that I mentioned on here recently, I’m not sure what I’d have done if they’d offered it to me… there were definitely cons to consider.

I’d have killed for a mentor like you at any of my internships. My first internship in college was when I was 18-19 and I was a marketing intern… well, they were short-staffed in the customer service department so they had all of us interns answering the help line! I learned nothing about marketing that summer. That company went under in the recession a couple years later — they worked exclusively with the auto industry.
