What you study in school is less relevant than your actual competence... feel like people keep forgetting this

One of my favorite econ professors (at a school with no undergrad business program) liked telling students something along the lines of: You should only be here if you are truly interested in economics. If you just want to get a job in finance, consulting, take intro econ, take a stats class, etc. and then go major in something that actually excites you.

Your grades will be better if you arent studying something that bores you and you will be a more interesting job candidate both on paper and in person. Undergrad major doesn't matter nearly as much as getting good internships/work experience and learning some basic important skills (e.g. nobody in "business" needs to know anything from a 4th year calculus based macroeconomics course... They need to understand basic starts, basic micro, and how to use Excel).

President of my firm was an undergrad history major. Unless you are going to be something like a mechanical engineer that requires a pre-professional program... Just acquire the skills employers desire and then study what sounds fun.

Amazon definitely doesn't pay that for senior ops manager- she mentions in the video her dad was in finance, she's invested since she was 3, and the income cited in the video includes her investment returns

Based on that tax expenditure her base is probably closer to $110k, or about £85k. Which is still good, don’t get me wrong, but when you’re shelling out that much monthly for a flat you’re not flush with spare cash to invest. Either good options from AMZ are inflating that or parental help.

As a New York City native (6 generations @ that) who currently lives in London, I completely disagree.

My rent is cheaper in London, groceries are literally a 3rd of the prices or less, the Tube is slightly more than the subway, but the buses are cheaper and just as efficient + you get to people watch.

It’s easier to live lavish in London!

And don’t get me started on how cheap it is to fly around Europe (pre-Covid).

Just typing this up makes me horrified @ moving back to NYC/America aka a 3rd world country in a Gucci belt.

I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
