I have bh been blessed with two job offerings in the past 2.5 weeks. One of the potential employers is a former YU bochur and the other a former Mir bochur. I like the jobs equally, so it will come down to which boss i think will be better. Any thoughts? Any warnings or suggestions? thanks for your helpFebruary 22, 2016 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #1138351☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
If you’re single, the Mir bochur in case you end up marrying him.February 22, 2016 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #1138352🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant
Did you meet with any of them?February 22, 2016 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #1138353gavra_at_workParticipant
Mir Bochur means nothing, the place is a catch-all for anyone going to Israel after Gap Year who doesn’t go to Brisk or Speedy Freedy.
That being said, which company has better potential for you, both within the company and learning the business?February 22, 2016 9:02 pm at 9:02 pm #1138355mik5Participant
You have the luxury of choosing. 🙂
Mir Yerushalayim or Brooklyn?
A former bachur? But now they are both grown men?February 22, 2016 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #1138356PhilParticipant
Is this a “troll” post? In the recent thread regarding YU Bochurim you decried the blanket rejection of YU and acceptance of Mir, a point on which many agree with you.
However, you also said, “I do have a chip on my shoulder” and I’m wondering if you’re trying to exacerbate things with this post.February 22, 2016 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #1138357Bubba21Participant
Phil: as an eved hashem, i try to be accepting of all types in the frum community. Whenever one is attacked, i try to defend it, no matter which one it is. I was just wondering in this post if people have certain experiences that could help me make an informed decision.February 22, 2016 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #1138358☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
In other words, yes, it’s a troll post.February 22, 2016 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #1138359Bored_on_the_JobParticipant
Just be careful not to make too much small talk with either 😉February 22, 2016 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm #1138360
joseph would have to issue his psak, since he is the self appointed posek of the coffee room, how one shoulda address members of the opposite yeshiva crowd.February 22, 2016 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1138361JosephParticipant
It is muttar to work with people of the Modern Orthodox persuasion.February 22, 2016 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1138362
Thank you. Can I get my name mentioned in your SH’UT sefer when it is published?February 23, 2016 3:22 am at 3:22 am #1138363Matan1Participant
On one hand, Mir bachur who works is a bidieved. Do you really want your boss to be a bidieved? On the other hand, the YU bachur goes mixed swimming. Do you really want a boss who goes mixed swimming?February 23, 2016 12:39 pm at 12:39 pm #1138364
The last post is motsi shem ra.
I took it to have been meant sarcastically to mock such Hotza’as Shem Ra.February 23, 2016 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm #1138365squeakParticipant
You should have shut down this thread after the OP made the gay marriage comment.February 23, 2016 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm #1138366nishtdayngesheftParticipant
The title of the post seems to be if it is better to work for YU or for a Mir Bochur.
I don’t know the financial stability of the Mir Bochur, however it is well known that YU is in dire financial straits, having lost hundreds of millions of dollars in past few years.
A position there may not have longevity, certainly because you wouldn’t have seniority and likely would be one of the first to be let go when they need to cut costs to stay aloft.February 23, 2016 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1138367YW Moderator-29 👨💻Moderator
Squeak, when you’re right, you’re right.
