I love this whole interview. I also need to take the job hopping thing to heart. I start a new job next week but it’s still probably less money and responsibility than what I’m capable of! I’ve been a PhD wife for the last 6 years, though, so it was more about paying the bills than building a career and it’s time for that to change!
(I’m also really glad you know yourself well enough to know that military spouse life isn’t for you. My best friend is a military spouse to an Army Major and even though he’s an officer and she had her PhD, it’s still really hard.)
