P1- I think that you might not know what psychosocial advocacy skills in a multi-lateral environment mean. Sad!

like

Realization one: learned during the time when I sold construction equipment to south america to fund my desire to do unpaid psychosocial policy advocacy work at the UN in very expensive NYC at age 25: win the work you want to do. Maybe it is just the wine, but hopefully I'l l do the same at D!

D1 gets it. Maybe stupid, but I actually just sent the PPD an email. He emailed me first about this BD opp that was essentially my dream job and I was like, hey, why not win the work you want to do and love? Also, this original email was kind of goofy

Please send more emails to co workers in this state.

Yeah, P3- the Partner had his secretary send me a calendar invite for this morning to discuss bc he was impressed by my email. Stop being mean to strangers.

Will do once strangers stop being dumbasses 😘

I know that I don't need to update, but it is positive news. I asked the Partner if others responded to his email. He said that they did, but that he did not even consider them and without me even asking, he set me up with an analyst to do the time consuming part bc he knew that I had a limited bandwidth to work on it. The work is my dream job so it is super exciting!

P3- how am I being a dumbass?

Like, no need to answer. We're all just fooling around and you prob don't mean serious harm

Does anyone work as a Client Manager for WTW (Willis Towers Wilson) in California? Particularly Los Angeles, Irvine, Orange County? If so, what is your offered salary? Would love to know other Client Manager's salary as well within other companies in these areas so I can get a better idea of the market! Thank you in advance :)

Would you buy a $650k house on a $185k gross a year income? We could scrap together about a $100k down payment. A lot more than I want to spend now (although wife and I though we might buy a house like that in 4-5 years assuming we both continued to advance in our careers), but our perfect home just listed. It’s very unique and checks basically every one of our boxes.
