re: Out of state jobs - Spirit of Dunson on 10/19/17 at 1:14 pm
In 2010, I was looking for a job in engineering. I had a PhD, good experience, and a resume that showed my willingness to relocate. I applied for about 50 positions in 3 months with not even a call back. It was depressing, frustrating, and infuriating all at once. Eventually, I landed a decent job o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How long is too long to be an undergrad? + opinions - Spirit of Dunson on 10/15/17 at 11:58 pm
Maybe 10 years? You'll be working for close to 40 years, so what's an extra few years of college to make sure you get a better job?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: How much money would you need to retire at 65? - Spirit of Dunson on 10/1/17 at 12:53 pm
I would find it tough to retire with just 1-2M and live on the interest. Even without a mortgage. No hobbies? No travel? Counting on social security? What's the plan?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: First Year Attorney Starting Salary? - Spirit of Dunson on 10/1/17 at 12:50 pm
Interesting discussion. My wife worked for a big firm in Manhattan and regularly billed >2200 per year... And she was an honest biller. The money was amazing, but the lifestyle wasn't. She doesn't practice anymore. I make good money now, but still don't have the salary she did 10 years ago!...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Marathon Training Nutrition - Spirit of Dunson on 9/23/17 at 10:35 am
I'm running the berlin marathon tomorrow. I didn't change my diet during training, just ate a bit more. I tend to eat relatively healthy, though (lean protein, lots of carbs in general). I had a big cheeseburger and cheese fries for lunch today, and I'll have some pasta for dinner. Probably not th...

re: Advice - Spirit of Dunson on 9/11/17 at 1:44 pm
Don't worry about those comments. I've wanted to start a thread asking for some ideas, but am not comfortable posting my details and risking the "subtle brag" bull shite. As to your situation, I'm surprised at how low your retirement savings are based on your income. You either live well and have ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Baw question: do you keep your trailer hitch on at all times? - Spirit of Dunson on 9/9/17 at 1:31 am
What is it about all you truck drivers that get rear ended so often? Do you all brake hard or something? Seems like a high proportion based on this thread. I did have a truck driver back into me once and frick up my car. It definitely cost them more than if they didn't have the hitch in. But I ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Stavanger, Norway to London - cheap options - Spirit of Dunson on 9/8/17 at 1:05 pm
Where in London? SAS flies to Heathrow, and Norwegian flies to Gatwick. There have been fewer flights from Stavanger since the oil price dropped. When I fly there, it is through amsterdam, Oslo, or copenhagen. ...

re: Applying for jobs that require relocation - Spirit of Dunson on 9/1/17 at 8:24 am
[quote] I wouldn't say mobility is standard, but it isn't out of the ordinary.[/quote]Then just state in your cover letter or somewhere in your resume that you are mobile. That often enhances an applicant in my view - so it may even be a positive for you. It shows a bit of motivation and openness. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Applying for jobs that require relocation - Spirit of Dunson on 9/1/17 at 8:15 am
A lot of good points in this thread. I took a job that had a cross-state relocation, but my resume and cover letter both said I was geographically flexible and highly mobile. In my current position, I hire folks internationally, and it is normal to have applicants from multiple hemispheres. But t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
