Re: Advice: which job to take?

To paraphrase some of the previous posters - and an old dead dude, Joseph Campbell: "Follow your bliss."

Mine was the space program - lots of tdy travel, spent days at a time sometimes on a rocket stand or vertical assembly building - long, short hours - thrilling, boring and sometimes downright irritating. Layed off at 49 - said ok - turn out(on?) the lights the party's over (dandy Don Meredith?) - became an ER.

Salary peak in 1992 - 60k.

Ouch, Mikey!

... being married is like a very long military campaign with an unprotected and unprotectable flank.
I'm always happy to keep an eye on my spouse's flanks!



The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Re: Advice: which job to take?

When a much younger man, I was always keeping an eye on someone's spouse's flanks and other parts. All that is behind me now.
Lucky to be alive in some ways I suppose

I took the 40 hour a week job and I use my nights and weekends to get my MBA.
