    Re: Jobs.

    Look out for number 1. If you get a better offer then do what's best for you.

    I guarantee the company will do what's best for it....even if that means kicking you to the curb at a later date.

    exactly. Be professional, but recognize they are likely not going to demonstrate loyalty to you if it's not in their best interests.

    Re: Jobs.

    I'm making $300,000 from my home. I set my own hours and work only when I want. If you want this same opportunity visit www.makemoneyfastcom (oops I forgot the . before the com. Add that and it should work). You just need to enter some simple information and then you are ready to make a lot of money like me.

Not saying it's impossible but it would be a very rare situation for you to hit 100k as a teacher.
    You're probably at a small school if your making just 5k as a head varsity coach. I was an assistant for an underclass team and made about 4k at a bigger school in Iowa.

    Also, I had a whole sheet on what Webster City pays it's teachers. Eventually it tops out, but I remember seeing 66k on it. So you take the 66k, then the 8k I'd say a bigger school coach would make, take a 4k assistant coach, and you're just 20k short.

    This is good advice in general, but in my situation I had to be a little more straight forward about it since the other company is only a couple miles away from where I currently work, and I knew I'd probably meet some of them again at different functions.

    I know a handful of 3A schools in the area are 5-6k for head coaches. Football/Basketball will usually be a little more in most places but I know at least 2 head 3A bball coaches around here that are under 6k. Regardless you're really going to be busting your hump to make 22k in the summer on top of all the offseason stuff for your program if you're a head coach.



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Take it. You're young, single and have no kids. That's great money for just out of college and you'll see a different part of the country. There are worse places to live than the state of Washington.

    Some of you severely underestimate what teachers at big districts make late in their career.

    Re: Jobs.

    Why are you immediately jumping to reneging?

    You have an offer in hand, with a timeline. Continue to apply to other jobs, network, go to career fair etc. If some other interviews come in, ask for an extension from the original company. This is much better than just accepting at the 30 day deadline, then interviewing with others, and possibly reneging. If you need another 30 days, ask for it, and ask for it sooner rather than later. To be super specific, ask for another month at least a week before your deadline is up.

    (Although I have taken both my original offers out of undergrad/mba, I have had extensions on both, and seriously considered alternatives before choosing)

    To clarify why I said what I did, reneging does make the university look bad. While not as big of a deal at state schools, and for undergrad, it still leaves a bad taste in recruiters mouths, and can definitely impact future recruiting at ISU. This is especially true if they are not hiring very many students per year from ISU, which I assume is the case based on salary and location.

    Lastly, I work for a company based in Seattle, so now I want to know who it is..

    There were about 80 ISU students (interns and full timers) recruited and accepted for jobs. I don't think they are gonna stop any time soon. It is a big one. Hope that helps.
