Your marketability changes…

Humans of New York

“I’m having trouble finding work. People assume that all attorneys are well off, but once you’re past an age where you are young and single and can work all night, your marketability changes. Everyone at my wife’s office knows that I’m an attorney, so they assume that we’re financially stable and that she can quit whenever she wants. It gives her a bit of a shield. I’d rather not show my face because I don’t want her bosses to know how badly she needs the job.”
