I keep hearing that SE is one of the best engineering careers that no one tell you about… I only agree because I found out about it at the age of 35. When did you learn about this career path? We’re you aware of it prior to graduating from your undergrad or graduate school?

Forgot to pay my credit card on time, got a late fee, gave them a call, ask for a courtesy waiver, and got the fee and the interest removed for the entire billing cycle.

If you get a late fee, give your CC company a call, they are pretty good at waiving the fee if it is your first offense.

+ $65 dollars in 3 minutes. Not bad.

For those who moved during the pandemic, and potentially moved away from a big city with lots of job opportunities, where did you move from and to?

I moved during the pandemic from Boston to Central New York. Super thankful that WFH and remote work in general has allowed me move sooner than planned and keep my job/seek new jobs that are remote. Being able to make a big life change and not have to consider adjusting my career outlook and/or salary expectations has been really wonderful.

Considering an offer for a new job but a little nervous about the travel. I was told 15-25% travel…rest work from home. One person I talked to said they travel 50 percent currently based on current project but other times no travel. I think it just varies by project. They preach great WLB and I think I’ll enjoy the work a lot more plus get raise. I don’t have a family but will miss my dog when I’m gone. Anyone go from no travel to this amount? Any perspective/thoughts?
