RE: Mid Career Phd
Thanks for such a detailed and informative response. I feel my reasons are slightly different. I am in a decent job but it doesn’t excite me. I yearn for Fridays. However, I have always enjoyed teaching and mentoring. I am currently mentoring a high school student and looking forward to mentor others, so that they can achieve their dreams. Even though I am a mentor, I have been rediscovering something which I had bottled up. Pursuing a job wasn’t my decision and it was more of an economical choice. You’re absolutely right it was during the financial storm of 2008-09 when I started my first job and can attest that it was a dreadful situation.
