What did you do with your science degree?

Nowadays I get to work on cutting-edge research projects, many of which I'm not even allowed to share details on haha

I graduated as a chemical engineer and I tried working in the industry for a while but I realized I didn't actually enjoy it that much. Now I'm a teacher and I love it even if the pay isn't as great

I did computer science in college and now I work for myself as an app developer

Let it sit idle as the most expensive piece of paper I'll ever own. I couldn't bring myself to join the industry after graduating and ended up taking a job as a software dev instead.

Friends, EY is initiating my PERM and asking me to fill out a questionnaire. I have only worked for EY “full-time” for 2+ years (1 year Staff, 1+ year Senior) after college and have two summer internships during college. What should I put for my previous work experience given I’ll need to obtain experience verification letters (EVLs)? Can my current company (EY) be my sole previous employer? Appreciate any advice/is anyone in a similar situation?

I got an offer for 65k from a tech startup for a Digital Marketing Specialist role and I countered HR with 72k as the firm baseline salary I wanted. They took that back to the team and shortly thereafter I received an email from one of the cofounders asking to meet to “reach an agreement”. I know this means they want to talk me down, but their benefits are pretty lean (health, vision, dental, ‘unlimited’ paid vacation, and a $1k prof dev stipend. How do I stand firm without scaring them off?
