Rejecting a western career because of a glass ceiling watch

    • Thread Starter

    Anyone else thinking of doing the same on a permanent basis? Reason being, I am not white and I won't have the distinct privileges that whites do when giving each other promotions.

    I have worked on my own side ventures and I am on track for earning more than my peers do in their graduate jobs (I am a graduate in Law, RG). I could be living a more comfortable life in terms of income at the moment if I totally committed myself to commercial law. However, I didn't want to go into a career where my white peers in my age group could overtake me in seniority quite quickly.

    Plus, I ****ing hate working for the corporations (been there before). Yet, socialism is a bit of a dirty word around these parts where deluded students think they will be earning millions in bonuses.
