Fair enough - I'm in GTA so obviously more opportunities... also no Family, so I'm able to be a bit more risky.WikkiWikki wrote: ↑Feb 21st, 2018 10:11 amAll depends on where you live, if I wanted to do that I would need to uproot my entire family. Now while I have moved a lot in my life and to different jobs, I have or see no need to now.
My motto is, Ive put in my time in the trenches, being in my field for over 20 years and living in 3 provinces. I found a job I deserve, and will stay where I am, at least company wise, until I retire.
Also - my logic is the old model of loyalty is pointless - internally I've seen people get underpaid on promotions, and only through a competing offer from another firm do they match - and that is only if they like you. My thinking is learn as much as possible, and move to more senior position when opportunity presents itself, which is what I'm trying to do now.
I think I'll be constantly job hopping for next couple of years, unless I get a cushy government gig making 150k plus.
