Do you feel like you just "get by" with your current salary? Or, are you comfortable enough?

I’m leaning towards just getting by - I definitely need to negotiate a raise soon.

So paycheck to paycheck? No savings?

I have some savings, but definitely not as much as I'd like. Right now, I'm focusing on paying down debt so I can have better cash flow. I'm relatively comfortable, but I'd love to be bringing in more. What about you, OP?

I'm confused. I earn well but the family's needs continue to grow.

Yeah, I feel pretty well set up for my age and background

What is your CTC and your age?

I still want a little more but things are comfortable enough.

How much are you at?

I'm just floating by on my current salary. I do some side work that helps me with my fun purchases. Not saving as much as I should be though

What kind of side work do you do?

Debating between 2 starting job offers. Both are great companies and roles I’m interested growing in. But I’m confused financially which is better. Option 1: $62K salary, 15 days off, summer Fridays Option 2: $31.25 hourly, 18 days off, longer hours with time in a half OT, bonus at end of year I’ve never worked a corporate hourly job so I have no idea what to choose.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
