@laluchita @WayDownSouth I think that sometimes people just end up there. Non Profits are still a business and need all the things a for profit business needs: admins, programmers, website designers, marketing, PR, accountants, lawyers, analysts, etc. So during a job search if you keep your options open you can end up up seriously considering non profits. Sometimes its the best job out of their options.
@WayDownSouth The point being that most people become teachers/professors for a reason. They love the subject matter and the ability to reach young minds. As much as that person may want to leave, they most likely feel a sense of duty to see the school year/semester through before leaving. It goes beyond just looking out for yourself. Also many people probably also find it hard to leave because again they love to teach and are forced out because of financial reasons. Again its not just a black and white situation.
@stuffisthings This comment can apply to so many things: people care a lot about X, except when X belongs/applies to poor people
Credit Card August:1441.86 September: 179.81 I can't wait to pay this sucker off at the end of the month! New iphone here I come :)
Great advice Logan! Sometimes we can get so focused on the things we don't like, we don't take the time to see good things. Just because you're coworkers are older doesn't mean you have nothing in common. Ask people out to lunch or chit chat about weekend plans in the break room. You'll be surprised about the inner workings of people lives. If anything you can see if anyone would want to be your mentor. You can definitely learn something (positive or negative) about how you want your career path to look .
I love hearing about people's living situation. Even though I haven't left the country, I moved from NY metro area to Atlanta and the quality of life is extremely different. So I understand not wanting to give up financial comfort to be closer to where you come from. @bgprincipessa I was thinking the same thing regarding the debt/salary calculators. I looked up a few online but nothing seemed that great.
I'm doing this for the first time: Student Loan July: 18,296.83 August: 14,296.83 @6.8 Car Loan July: 15786.93 August: 15,473.11 @3.99 Credit Card July: 1074.87 August: 1,374.87 @0.00 I went shopping this month. This card won't be paid off for a while cause I'll be charging my Christmas flight on it soon. But the goal is pay it off before the interest kicks in.
I really liked this interview. I know a bunch of what she says sucks but unfortunately its true. I don't think that what she's saying has to do with women needing to downplay accomplishments to find love, but more to do with finding time for love/relationships. If two people are super successful most likely they are both super busy with work and other personal ventures: charity work, marathon/triathlon training, member of an arts board, member of a certification board, etc. If both of you only 2-5 hours a day for your relationship, how does it flourish? How do you fit something new into you're already packed schedule? So it seems better to date someone who's professional life isn't as intense or has different demands that allows them to have more time available for a relationship. I work for a Fortune 500 company and I see it in the relationships the executive have at my companies. The high level male and female execs all have spouses/long term partners who are teachers, nurses, stay at home parents, librarians or have other jobs that have different demands on them. So rather than it being a gendered thing, maybe those super successful 40 year old women should take a hint from their male counterparts. Date younger and maybe re-evaluate what you want in a significant other. Money and position aren't the be all end all of a person's worth. A persons characters matters too.
did anyone have trouble viewing the slides?
