Great advice, thank you. I've done this a few times and sometimes people actually want to meet you in person and show you their office and stuff and it's great. Sadly it hasn't led me to a job yet but I hold on to those contact FOREVER.
@Lily Rowan @bgprincipessa Haha like I said, my math isn't that great, it could've been 2%. Either way, it came out to $400/year before taxes and I had been told at my interview that the average increase after a year of employment was more than this (exact numbers).
I work for a crappy company and after my first performance review they offered me a 4% raise and I was flustered and didn't do the math and when I did the math, it came out to about a $400/year raise so I flip the shit out. And then this year I got another stellar review, asked for a raise, and was denied again for no discernable reason other than 'oh well we can't do raises at this point in time, I know it's hard for you to live on your yearly salary lol'. Needless to say I am actively searching for a new job.
@ThatJenn @OllyOlly Thanks very much!
I must be some kind of an idiot because this was easy enough in gmail on a computer but I've totally fucked myself on my iphone and now I can't access my app at all. WTF computerz :(
Yea Chicago! I haven't heard of Ada Street so now I'm intrigued.
Or you could take 30 minutes on your day off to register the cards online, track your balances there, get a real wallet and a purse and then just use them instead of your credit/debit cards. Also I wouldn't care what some 16 year old grocery store cashier thinks of what card you're using.
@ImASadGiraffe I never want to leave Chicago, either!
This is why I still live with roommates in Chicago. Hopefully in a year I will have a new job that makes it possible to live alone, but I can't imagine paying a grand for rent.
