What she's like when you take a job in a different city ^^. Ok, these are just actors and this is just a stock image, but I'm telling you: your S.O. is one of the BEST motivations to go out and get a great job.
My whole purpose for grad school was so I could get back to China where my S.O. was. This was the fuel for all of the mistakes I was about to make (T-T). But it was all I needed.
We'll be married for 15 years this month.
Are you thinking about job offers from the same perspective? If so, that can be a wholesome motivation to help you get to where you want to go.
Then, if you value the job hunt as much as academics, you can take advantage of all of the career resources available to you to go out and reach your dream. Your S.O. is waiting!
