Better Jobs with Companies That Care
August 16, 2017
Look, we're going to be straight with you: this week sucked. It sucked hard. Normally we're glass half full kind of gals, but turn on the news (or your computer, or your phone, or stick your head out from under the covers) and negativity is rampant. It hits us at every curve and it's difficult to bring the levity we're normally known for. But every once in awhile, it's ok to let your guard down and let the world know you're human. Y'know, a human with emotions and feelings and a soul. We weep for lives lost, opportunities lost, ground-gained lost. We weep for us all. Take care of yourselves, and take care of each other. It's times like these that bring the important stuff into perspective. We pray the future brings brighter days, and we won't stop fighting until it does.

Providing ample PTO and comfy couches, you won't be getting behind-the-back side-eye here for catching a little snooze. Don't believe us? Check them out and see for yourself (along with a plethora of other hard-to-beat benefits, too!)

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
I thought about writing this blog piece like one of those quizzes that used to be on the back pages of Seventeen and Cosmo where each question would offer several answers of varying point levels and you'd pick one answer per question, tally up your points at the end, and match your score to one of several possible results.
