Re: Switching Careers - From IT to Police Officer

Anyways, why cop? While plans can and do change, I can see myself being one for the next 20+ years. I feel like I'm not contributing to society with tech (at least directly), but as a cop, I can really make a difference in a local community. I understand the dangers when it comes to law enforcement...

Re: MBA + Project Management Salary?

How confident are you that a promotion will actually happen? The general rule-of-thumb is to do the job you want, not what you have. As noted in some earlier posts, taking on a stretch assignment now can only help your position when the time comes for a promotion. If you like project management and...

Re: MBA + Project Management Salary?

I never think of PMP as a route to executive management. Line managers-maybe. I agree. Those who are in management positions and take stretch opportunities on projects outside of their own area are usually promoted. Not ones who are strictly project managers. At least from what I have seen. Is a li...

Re: $540 a month on food for graduate student budget too much?

Generally, $540 is a lot for a food bill for a single person and shows that eating out adds up quickly. To put your bill into perspective, I spend $300 or less each month on food and I have a high activity and athletic motor/frame as a early 30's male. My daily diet requires 3000+ calories a day. I ...
