    Thanks for the 14 years of LOLs. Govern yourselves accordingly and avoid uppercut reactions!

    My last job was just a smidge over 9 years. I thought I was going to be a lifer at that company but things changed pretty drastically. Thankfully the skillset I learned there gave me something to lean on while I learned other aspects of dat contractor lyfe.

    P.S I asked for a package multiple times as they were giving them out around the time I finally pulled the pin but either they wanted me to stay, or knew I was going to leave regardless. My guess is the latter.

    I just pulled the pin on the job I've been doing for the last 14 years, ever since graduating University.

    There were some location changes and even company changes but the job/project was more or less the same.

    Not sure if I've retired or if I'll try to find another job in the future but I knew it was time and have no regrets thus far. Still need to transition out over the next few weeks but hopefully everything will end on good terms and they'll be able to fill the gap I'm leaving.

    Thanks man. Goal was to FIRE at 35 but ended up waiting until 36... seems like terrible timing as far as the asset bubble we're currently in but I'll spend the next year sorting out a portfolio that will hopefully be defensive enough until valuations regress to the mean. Worst case scenario, I find a side-hustle that I enjoy to make a little cash on the side if the next decade's returns are as terrible as I expect them to be.

    First job out of school was 8 months, second was 11 months. When I started the third job I was worried about a pattern developing and decided to try to last 5 years. Made it to 5.5 years before switching again.
    Yep sounds like me, I struggled my first year out of School. First job was 11 months, second was 6. Third company has been 12.5 years so far, 6 jobs in the company, all promotions, but still. Longest ever position was 4.5 years though.
    Cos...

    I'm on the "financial ineptitude, retire ever?" plan.

    You've said that before but I don't believe it. You seem to be pretty knowledgeable.

    Hah, well, I can retire the day my wife's sweet sweet public sector pension kicks in. I guess that will make her financially independent, and me very dependent.

    More people on beyond.ca are using this strategy than they would like to admit.

    Why do you think I'm firmly on the "Teachers aren't paid enough" wagon.

    Someone needs to bring home the bacon.

    Oil and gas services is certainly not the way.
