2 YOE and haven’t done or seen anything work related that has really inspired or excited me outside of getting a paycheck. 10 YOE feels like an eternity from now but I’m sure it’ll sneak up on me and that’s scary. Am I crazy to just chase 💰💰 for a few years? When did you feel like you knew what you wanted to do for work / in your career? What if it’s just relatively mediocre pay in consulting like…forever?

Chase money and invest everything you possibly can. And lower your expectations for fulfillment from work. I think that sometimes you’ll feel great about your work and sometimes it’ll be meh.

Relatively mediocre pay is not synonymous with consulting. What you want to do is also not always synonymous with what you're doing right now. Just live your life. I have 10 YOE and I just got into consulting. Pays pretty nice. Still surfing for alternative lifes though.

Today my American friend complained how hard for her to get a job .she is financially stressed and hasn’t work for years since she quit and get married.To be honest , I don’t feel sorry for her. As immigrant, I have to work 10 times harder than her and made a lot of sacrifices.I don’t take vacations and keep getting rejected again and again for no visa sponsorship, while she was partying .This year I get a job at a major corporate and plan to apply Harvard business school! Never give up!
