It makes sense a career as a public relations manger may be overrated. There has really been only one successful public relations manger (see Luke 2:12).

On the other hand, perhaps the need for a proofreader is underrated.

She or he that is without typos among you, let him or her first cast an aspersion at her or him.

Merritt Island, Fl

I was very fortunate. I found out early that the best job is a job in a large organization that appreciated people with broad experiences and where changing jobs is the key to satisfaction. Early on I found that a new job was exciting, challenging and a learning experience. I also found that when the job became day to day work, it was a bore and it was time to find something more challenging in a totally different field.
I retired at the top of my game (and pay). I never assumed I would get rich. I assumed correctly, but live comfortably now and sometimes miss the work and wonder what could have been next.
