Work-Life Balance

The problems don’t stop when you graduate

Work-life balance is an issue for everyone. It will come up again and again over the course of your career. You’ll have to decide what optimal balance of salary and work hours is for you.

While you may want that $80,000 job, are you willing to put in 60 hours a week to make it? Or are there other things going on in your life that demand your attention?

Sometimes, you’ll make the wrong choice. And that’s okay. Periodically, you should assess how your current lifestyle makes you feel, so you can make more informed decisions the next time you go on a job hunt.

While making less money or taking out some additional student loan debt may not sound like the greatest ideas in the world, if doing so puts you in a more positive place, then we’re all for it.

Make sure you’re taking the time while you’re in school to enjoy college, and to enjoy your life even when you’re working. You only get one life. Do what you can to put yourself in a good position to enjoy it.
