I was out of college and rejected few jobs offers that I got due to salary… after 18 months of struggle, landed in a fantastic job with a mid size company; after that I bought a brand new car, condo, investment property, paid for my marriage all with cash within 8 to 9 years. Eventually joined a Big 4. Lessons learned: when you start your career, don’t focus only on salary, work towards getting real life experience. You can always change your employer. Remember “This too shall pass”, until I read this post I was not remembering initial days of my struggle. (Note: mine was not that big struggle, because of the financial help I was getting from my parents. I know of several others who really struggled to get a break in their career) All the best.

uplifting

Congrats. But help from your parents should be mentioned the first paragraph
