I've been working the same job for six years. Moving up from the very lowest position, to the highest position I can advance to in the company. (which still pays me mess than 30,000 a year.) It'* sad to think that I've been working the same job since I was a sophomore in highschool, and 16, and I'm now 22!!. My finances are dead even for expenses VS income. There'* no way I can afford to quit and work part time while still living on my own and with the car. I'd have to work full time and go to school full time, which I've done before, but it'* so damn hard! I just need to pick a career though. You're atleast that far.

Mega dittos. Exact same situation here.

Too drawn out to go into the details, plus I'm at work right now!

At least I'm working toward a different future, I suppose.

Good luck Andrew! I remember you telling me you were going to do this. There are so many better design jobs out there. Not that I know exactly how yours has been, but as far as advancement goes you can find it.

Hell, if you want to move to CT, we'll be needing a designer next year. As far as advancement goes, I was promoted with a 20% (salary) raise within 5 months of being here.

Lemme know if you need a place to crash up here or whatever for interviews, I'm in my apt in Oakdale (east of st paul), parking overnight is no problem, no other roommates to bother either.

if you arent getting paid what you deserve, it should come as little shock to your company.

Late update:

I put my 2 weeks in on Dec 27th. The boss said he was expecting it, but not until this summer when I would be done with school. My last day is this Friday, and school starts Monday! I better get my notebooks!

I am going to take out a $2500 loan to cover me for the months that I probably won't have a good paying job. I am going to be looking for a part-time job once I figure out how busy my schedule will actually be. Donating plasma will probably be my only income for a while

Hi ho, Hi ho, off to school I go, da da da da, da da da da... da da... da da!
