    So it's a bad sign that I'm making less than my age, huh?

    We seriously must have quite the reputation. My buddy is pretty smart but he's stupid at the same time, if that makes any sense. When he said he got a job there I was pretty shocked. They must think pretty highly of this university, though, if they're going to reach out to so many of our students/alumni.

    But ya, I've talked to him since he left a few weeks ago. Haven't discussed the job at all but he loves Seattle.

    I had assumed microsoft/amazon. My bad. But regardless of numbers, try to negotiate up front, and not renege.

    Industrial Engineering. What are you doing now? I'd be happy to give you my two cents. There is definitely opportunity to take advantage of market inefficiencies by getting an MBA, but there are also ways to load up debt and see little return too.

    Is this the truth or the classic get rich quick spam?

    It used to be a lot better. I grew up in Bellevue, on the east side of Lake Washington. Boeing was the big employer for the entire region from Everett down to Renton. I went off to college and married, and never lived there again. A few years after I left, a couple of startup companies started making a name for themselves...Starbucks & Microsoft. Then Amazon moved in. The two hightech companies and one trendy service company brought in a huge influx of Californians.

    Seattle used to be a big city with a small town attitude, friendly, clean, well behaved. Not anymore. It's not bad by Chicago or New York standards; it's probably only noticeable to those of us who knew it before the tech boom.

    Accept and don't look back. But I say that as someone who is still looking for a job.
