Several ways

I have worked this company for about 2 years. (I am working for a publishing company and it's my first regular job.) As I worked and studied at the same time, fortunately I performed two things with a balance, I guess, haha. Anyway...what I want to say is several ways where my friends and I are heading to.

First, Group A chooses a marriage. She is likely to engage in a family and satisfy with being a house wife. In order to do this, her husbands can make enough money to support the family and to meet her needs. The husband is likely to be far order than the wife by over 5 years, so they can assure the security fiancially and mentally. My friend, wife enjoys it.

Second, Group B chooses a further study. 100 percent of my friends graduated universtiy. (In Korea, there are tons of universities and colleges.) She graduated and got a degree two years ago as I did. Then she began to build their career at their own position. However life at work was not as good as they expected and she felt some lack. She needed something more even though she was not sure what it was. With consideration, some found what she wanted. Finally she decided to quit her job and begin schooling againat a graduate school. As she is a grown up, she will have to endure her finacial problems by herself. That's the real problem. Though she has some deposit, it does not last forever.

Third, Group C is thinking about changing her job. Two years is neither a long time nor a short time. When she was kicked into a real world from a school, she was in chaos. She did not what to do. When she was offered a job, she got it without much thinking and two years passed. While engaged in a industry, she wondered if this job was good for her. 'There might be another job for me. I am not talented at this. I am talented at that. I cannot succeed in this.' This is what she thinks.

Last, Group D is thinking about changing her job too but the reason is different from Group C. She wants to leave her current job to make better looking resume. 'This company is so small that it's not unadequete to build my career here. I have to play in a bigger water. If I leave her, I can get more salary and better position.' This is what she thinks.

I guess I belong to Group C. Korean girls are worried about these problem faster than guys becuase guys start working 2 year later than girl at average due to thier miliary service.
I don't want to welcome 2006 without any preparation.

That's so disgusting what you think of regarding the men's duty to service their country for 2 years as your opptunity to overcome the men. If you really want some preparation for 2006. Do faceoff first.

Hello. I wish I could type in Korean, but this is the first blog by another Korean that I have read. Making history every day, I suppose.

I moved to the United States around the time you were born! Seems like women in Korea these days have more opportunities in the business world than they did when I lived there. Good luck with your future endeavors.

I'm 28 and I STILL feel the whole "career anxiety thing", I'm not exactly happy with my current job, it's like Group D with no advancement opportunities. I will definitely be making some changes soon.
