Rich is subjective. I’m rich in health, love, and happiness. I make a great living. Combined my partner and I make over 200k a year and are able to save more than enough for retirement.

What about being poor at FAANG 🙈

Yet to be written, lol.

Sorry to be cliche - focus on doing what you love and money will follow. People can tell you know your stuff and are passionate, that reflects in your work. And then the long hours aren't as bad ... most of the time.

Bitcoin. JK. I wish.

Why is it that when ever I look at “entry level” jobs in IT they always want 2-4 years of experience. It’s entry level that means maybe some certifications if they didn’t major in the field or a degree in the field. Not 2-4 years already working in the field. Can someone please explain this to me?

I received a job offer from a major tech company that has been working remotely during Covid. However, they want me to work in the office three days a week starting in January. Given everything that’s happening with COVID in NYC, I’m hesitant. Before the current surge in cases I was open to it, but now it seems very risky. How should I navigate this? The broader team is one of the few working in-person.

I just recently joined a team. The organization's stand is they don't care where we work from. Most people work from office once/twice a week and I generally go once a week.

While I was recruited I was told my role doesn't require me to be in office. I now have a new manager (diff from the one who interviewed me) and he indirectly keeps pointing out that I am not in office often like "oh anyway you are in only on Thursdays" etc on multiple instances.

How do I handle this?
