Worked in banking before D - the weekends you don’t work and the relationships you make/develop are worth far more. Invest your money appropriately and you’ll come out with the same net income but with half the hours spent.

Newb question, but curious as to how much banking typically makes? Wonder why people would go this route as if it’s the only field to make a lot. I would think the tech pay and WLB ratio would far exceed banking

To those kids who think "I prefer to earn morehh and burn out!1!" let's remember them that REAL burn out could mean mild, but also moderate to severe depression and/or panic and anxiety.
Which is (based on ppl who suffered it) way worse than most organic diseases out there.

Tech is the new banking

I’m looking for advice on finding a new job as a paralegal. I just recently got my paralegal certificate in May 2021 and have been working as a paralegal for a Sole Practitioner since August, but had to make the decision to leave because I’m not making enough money to support myself. I have experience in Plaintiff’s work doing mostly personal injury, but have handled other types of cases, too. I don’t have much experience in this field thus far and would appreciate any advice I can get.
