Have you ever looked at Colorado’s pay scale. The best thing about Colorado is that pay ranges are public. So if anything go based on that and remember you’re experienced and don’t ever low ball yourself!

I never thought about asking for their range, I just assume they wouldn’t answer the question. I think I’m going to be wary of that for other interviews I do. Thank you!

I feel that I can’t untie my identity and self-worth from professional success. I feel stuck in my career and I’m not sure how to get unstuck. I’ve been working hard for the past years and I don’t feel that I’m where I should be. Where should I focus my energy? MBA to advance and expand my networks? Pivot to a new spot? Focus on finding a “less prestigious” job with more balance, and focus on a side-hustle and hobbies outside of work? Not necessarily looking for answers. Just want to hear others
