Looking to start my career out of college as Sales Engineer or Continuous Improvement Engineer. Kind of in a cross roads about which career path I should choose. I currently have a soft offer from a large auto OEM company paying $80-90k as a CI Engineer. Any insight would be appreciated!

Hi - How do you find out who is a top criminal defense healthcare attorney in your state?

All my friends say I could meet great women out if I was a little more confident or upfront, but I have no experience doing that and no example to work off of. I'm only 31, but I haven't been on a lot of dates and I worry I won't find someone if I don't figure out how to at least flirt and chat well. Men who are naturally introverted/shy, is there anything that's really helped you gain confidence with women?
