Right before I graduated from college I made myself a promise: I swore to take at least two years of working in the ‘real’ world before even considering graduate school.
I wanted to prove to myself that I could find, keep, and perhaps even enjoy a job in my field of study. I wanted a career, goddamnit. And I decided that, if need be, I would sell my soul to get that first foothold in the industry. At least temporarily.
What do I mean by this “temporary soul-selling”? I mean working for a company that is evil goes against my values, at least for a limited period of time.
