    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 help

    If you’re single, the Mir bochur in case you end up marrying him.

    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?

    You have the luxury of choosing. 🙂

    Mir Yerushalayim or Brooklyn?

    A former bachur? But now they are both grown men?

    Bubba21,

    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.

    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.

    In other words, yes, it’s a troll post.

    Just be careful not to make too much small talk with either 😉

    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.

    It is muttar to work with people of the Modern Orthodox persuasion.

    Thank you. Can I get my name mentioned in your SH’UT sefer when it is published?

    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?

    The last post is motsi shem ra.

    I took it to have been meant sarcastically to mock such Hotza’as Shem Ra.

    You should have shut down this thread after the OP made the gay marriage comment.

    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.

    Squeak, when you’re right, you’re right.
