i make just over 50k for a university doing IT support. it's supposed to be 35 hours a week (9-5 with an hour for lunch). though for the last couple months i'm in at noon, out by five or six. i have a private office too, so i can close the door and take a nap.

yeah, it's gonna be a hard transition back into school...

Billing at $40 an hour, usually do 40-50 hrs. a week, but I'm shutting down my biznatch, so my days have been fairly clear.  Lots of golf, and blowing psychic kisses to those lovely people up at Hastings. :-*

I could probably move up to management if I wanted, but I don't want to be responsible for all the other chuckleheads I work with!  ;D

DAMN YOU BASTARDS AND BIACHES!!! I CREATED THIS THREAD IN HOPES OF HEARING SOMEONE SAY, "i can't find a real job so i'm waiting tables" SO THAT I COULD FEEL BETTER ABOUT MY SHAT ARSE JOB!!!  >:(

anyways, does anyone know about I banking? can i cut it with a poli sci degree?  :)

as a finance major, i banking has been my dream job and #1 job interviewing target.  ;D

the big i banks in the east side [goldman, ML, MS...etc] does hire libral arts majors. however, they hired almost exclusively from a few selected ivy league schools [from what i heard].

there's a smaller sized i bank based in minneapolis, pipper jeffry......you may give it a try if you really want to work in investment banking.

I just had my review.  I'm a lowly file clerk at a law firm.  They gave me the highest percentage possible, since despite all of my slacking off, I seem to get my work done, and that work remains at a high level of quality.  ( I mean really, how hard is it to file papers away in a file??)  My new salary?  $27k a year.  And in Boston, where I'm paying half the rent on a $1400/month apt (heat and hot water inc, thank god!) and other bills, I'm amazed I manage to save between $100-200 a month for law school.  I can't wait to move somewhere cheaper!

what is the time commitment for a job like that (in terms of years)? they pay well but everyone who works in i banking hates their job. plus they have to put in about 60 hrs a week. i dunno if thats for a person like me who's going to law school in a year.
