What are other career options for a puzzle-loving aerospace engineer?

I have been an aerospace engineer at a major aerospace company for 15 years, and I'm ready to try something different. I would really like to do something that involves diagnosing problems or solving puzzles. I love crosswords, cryptograms, logic puzzles, jigsaw puzzles. I hate team management/herding cats/politics.

Financial crisis when I have awful credit and am too sick to work

I posted here about my financial situation of being on disability for mental health reasons. Right now my PTSD symptoms are huge and all-consuming, so I am not able to accomplish much at all. However, I'm hitting a financial crisis point and need to find some remedy. My credit is too bad to get any kind of loan and I don't know who I could ask for one personally. Do you have any suggestions?

Asking Salary Range Before Traveling Cross-Country for Job Interview?

After two hour-long telephone interviews with the hiring manager at a potential new employer, they said they want me to fly out to the west coast for a day-long interview, at their expense. However, because this would necessitate taking several days off work and the hassle of traveling cross-country, I'd like to get an idea of their salary range before accepting the offer to come interview. Is this appropriate? [more inside]

24 and no idea what is best for my career... will I let my company down?

I'm a 24 year old female living in the UK. I graduated with a good Journalism & Advertising degree in 2011, and since then have had a handful of jobs. First I worked in retail, then managed to get a graduate internship for 3 months at a magazine. When that ended, I landed another temporary job with a communications company doing a (pretty mind numbing) job with their CMS systems/websites. So I moved from that job after a few months into the one I'm in now because it is permanent. [more inside]

I need a job yesterday. I'm still stuck. Where do I go from here?

Many of the details in this question still apply. Logistics aren't that big of a deal anymore, and I'm chipping away ever so slowly at my social anxiety and fluency issue, but I'm still without prospects and now about $12k in debt on account of some reckless impulse spending and unpaid debt from college.

Possible cancer and upcoming job interviews?

I am a 36-year-old woman that was just diagnosed with (endometrial) atypical hyperplasia, which is a precursor to uterine cancer. (I may have cancer already, but I'm trying not to let my mind go there). I will, most likely, need a hysterectomy. The thing is, I'm scheduled to move 300 miles away, and I have several job interviews lined up in my new location - great ones, too. How should I handle this with potential employers, particularly when they ask me when I can start? Or should I forget about my job search for a while?

How much money should I make? Graduating with an MPH

So I grew up broke. And, I did not learn the best ways to handle and think about money. We were always living paycheck to paycheck. My parents are still that way and so am I. But, I am going to finish my master's and I want to break the cycle. Financially secure here I come! I am in Boston. $40,000 sounds like a lot but when I met with a school financial adviser she said to be looking for 60k. Where are these public health jobs that pay this much? It feels weird and greedy to think this way, but my adviser made good points.In Chicago one of my friends was a pulling 72,000 as a teacher. so what is a good start salary? i have 8 years exp in health promotion and social justice. and what titles am I looking for and what areas to look, for 60k? maybe consulting? if so, which ones in Boston and DC? Thanks [more inside]

Help me find ways to make more money

I am unable to work because of disability. I collect SSDI and while I get food stamps, I only get $17/month, which doesn't go very far.

Tech hiring mystery

I'm trying to solve a mystery. Let's say it's a friend of a friend.. He's got some.. kind of.. tech certification and for several months has reported to her (while borrowing money from her) that he's been interviewing for jobs. He reports the same story each time.. several times a month.. that he interviews, interviews with the HR department, then their tech manager and sometimes a CEO gets throw in there... and then without fail, nobody calls him back once he interviews at a certain level. She's not remotely tech savvy and continues to loan him money. Is the market really so strained that this is possible? Does this happen a lot? She's cut him off, but.. curious.

What Major and Career Should I Look At If I Enjoy Math?

In studying for my Behavioral Statistics final (it’s a statistics class dealing with psychology research methods) I’ve realized something. I actually kind of enjoy math. As long as I don’t have to memorize formulas (as long as they are right there as I’m going through the work) it’s actually kind of comforting and fun. In fact, every math class I’ve taken in college (I’ve taken two remedial algebras, college algebra, and regular statistics before this class) I’ve enjoyed and made an A in. I’m really struggling about what I want to major in (I’m in psychology but I don’t have it in the gas tank to get a PhD), but I know that a lot of people don’t like math. They don’t get it. I do, so I’ve got something there, right? The only problem is, I don’t know what to do with it. These are the parameters… maybe you can think of something that fits? [more inside]
