Yes. Right by Chinatown.

Ha! Nothing super surprising I would think. The old timer who have been there forever stuck together, the new young guns all hang together. A fair amount of people just want to get out and get home at a decent hour. If your new you def have the advantage. They want to impress you with the good projects, unless your a junior, then you’ll get the crap until you prove yourself. Upward mobility is hard unless you’re winning awards. But there’s a fair amount of opportunity to do that. You can’t just try to hide though, you’ll be totally forgotten. Being hungry and a little crazy is the way to thrive there. As I’m sure it is with most decent places!

Yup. The new wins really infused some positivity and energy there after a bit of a drought. Really nice talented folks there, but still a lot of politics, drama and cliques. If you don’t let that stuff get to you and just enjoy the city and find some great people to bond with you’ll have a great time and make some great work.

I third! Spill, SAD1! Just started talking to a recruiter there!

Good to know! Thanks for sharing. By junior, do you mean folks with that word in their title, or are mid-seniors without an adjective also doomed to get lost in the crowd?

My daughter just attended a new teacher workshop at a ROE. A Superintendent presented (not hers) and told this room full of new teachers, “Real teachers get to school at 7:00 am and go home at 8:00 pm.” Really?? As a veteran teacher of 26 years, I was appalled! Makes sense why new teachers are leaving the classroom in their first five years and why we have a teacher shortage in Illinois with those type of expectations.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
