Whichever route you take, expect a struggle. Finding work you love is very difficult. Most people fail. Even if you succeed, it’s rare to be free to work on what you want till your thirties or forties. But if you have the destination in sight you’ll be more likely to arrive at it. If you know you can love work, you’re in the home stretch, and if you know what work you love, you’re practically there. (Paul Graham, January 2006)
I thought I’d lead with PG’s famous “How to do what you love” post on his Y-Combinator blog as I muddle through post-MBA life of looking for a job while considering work authorization constraints in the US. And I am conflicted, do I keep doing the startup life – looking for small companies or go corporate? And the answer is, I don’t think I’ll ever feel satisfied unless I try it and do the best that I can. So corporate America, here I am.
