Ditch The Diamond, Get The Job
Ester Bloom

This is, uh, the exact opposite of the advice I was given (ok, 10 years ago) when I graduated from law school in State A and had the temerity to want to move back to State B, where I had lived <i>literally my entire life</i> except for law school. Why? Because every interview I had in State B was conducted with a side eye as to why I left State B to begin with. So, my career services center recommended that I buy myself a plausible ring so that when asked the inevitable, “But why are you moving back? You LEFT” question, I could say, “Because Fiancee works at [Large State B-headquartered corporation]!”

I never did it, and ended up just fine. But still: that kind of thing is super gross no matter which way it’s going.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
