This being a professional blog, today’s post is going to focus on the category of career satisfaction, and evaluating job opportunities. Along with the weighted averages, I used the following lists in my discussions about the decision to accept my [...]

    I’m married to an engineer, and he likes to analyze life using as many empirical metrics as possible. I, as a marketer, tend to take a more psychological and situational approach. This makes for interesting discussions when we have to make big life decisions. That being said, the big life discussion of my current career [...]
