Yesterday I was fortunate enough to hear Zach Binney, a renowned epidemiologist and a professor at Emory.
(BTW, who knew we'd need to toss around the word "epidemiologist" so frequently?)
On the TrueHoop podcast, Zach explained that to open up things we deem important, we'll need to give up something else.
So ... open schools, but close bars, for example.
(I've seen op-eds stating that the gov't should just pay bars to stay closed. I'm not an economist, but this sounds fair.)
For recent grads seeking work, the Binney theory also applies.
Think of a job as having 3 parts:
2. Company name/reputation
Very rarely will you get your top choice in all 3 categories.
Some jobs will allow you to do what you're looking to do, for a company that's well-known, but in the "middle of nowhere."
Others will be what you want to do, in the city of your dreams, but for a company no one has heard of.
And some will be an incredible company in a great location but not really what you want to do.
To get something, you have to give up something else.
