Thanks, Sar! Always appreciate your feedback/thoughts. To be clear, my post was about seeking out jobs with fast learning cycles, not just steep learning curves (as your response suggests). Definitely agree that early in your career, you shouldn’t be optimizing for salary. You should be optimizing for maximizing your learning. It will pay off in the long term.
