Hi all,

I graduate this fall with my MBA and had took the first job I was offered to get out of engineering since my old comp didn't care for the degree. After a couple hundred rejections I found a small tech firm that was willing to give me a job but the team they assigned me to is different from the one during the interview.

I'm stuck because I don't want to waste a year doing a job that I don't want to grow in but I'm the breadwinner of my family (first gen immigrant).

Idk what to do

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype?

But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
