A Week In Tel Aviv, Israel, On A $50,000 Salary

2:30 p.m. — I don’t have any meetings today. I started working here about five months ago. At first, I really loved it. But, for the last two months, I haven’t felt challenged enough. And have started to realize that there isn’t really a lot of growth opportunities. I’ve felt a bit stuck and I’ve also struggled to make good, meaningful connections with the people here, especially with my boss. Despite my issues, for Israel, it’s a good place to be. The salary is higher than average, they offer good benefits, a comfortable work environment, and it’s good for my resume. My plan is to wait and see how things feel once I’ve been here for a full year.
