I think the bigger question is Did their profession play a role in you deciding to continue with this profession?

Wife is a nurse. While it didn't exactly influence my decision to marry it, it is nice to know that at least one of us will always be employed unless it's the apocalypse.

My wife is a cosmetologist, I haven’t paid for a haircut in 5 years!

SO moved from consulting to industry

Video editor for public access. Didn’t really play a role, but I do wish he’d look for other opportunities within his industry since things are a bit lopsided between us

Supply chain IT. And no, didn't play a role in wanting to be with them. They actually were in a much less 'important' job when we met. As long as the person was driven I didn't care much about their job title. Maybe that's because I already was set and doing just fine in the professional sense on my own?

Wife is a Consultant at Accenture

Husband in SWE. Did not play a role in decision to marry

Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔

Seems like this is a good place to get a reality check on what I am looking for in a position. I am trying to leave my current firm. I am a Senior Tax Accountant. Been the only Senior for a year. Currently make $76k. Had a bonus of $4500 this year. Not sure what the bonus is going to be next year (or if there will be any) since they are moving to a new bonus plan that is supposed to be more "fair and generous" We have a Safe harbor 401k plan. So get an automatic 3% contribution to 401K.

Venting: I just went through rounds and rounds of interviews with a company. It was going really well, like I nailed each one of them. They asked me to do an assignment to which I said yes (I know but I wanted the job!) and I spent days working on it. Then crickets. Few days later “sorry but we’re changing our focus to a new role”. I feel angry, deflated.. sad. It seems on here that it’s easy for everyone to get the job. I’m always the number two candidates or *poof* the role disappears.
