For the #YourNextMove column, @kimberlybonline responds to someone unsure how to react to younger colleagues whose idea of professionalism doesn’t align with the employee’s own: “I recently accepted a very low-paying job at a higher-education institution I have always wanted to work for. Although this role is very important to the institution, I didn’t know until I received my formal offer outlining salary and benefits that it was considered entry level. I’m trying to maintain a positive outlook and think of this role as a stepping stone to get where I want to be in my career. Another reason I wanted to work for the institution is that they offer free tuition for dependents, and I have twin teenagers who will graduate high school in two years.

The thing is, so many people that I work with directly are younger than me (aged 25 to 30) and are very immature, loud, and unprofessional (jokes, long lunch breaks, attire, etc.). I’m 38 (and very proud!), and feel like I was hired because I’m a little bit older and more mature. The supervisors do not address the other employees’ behavior, and while they haven’t approached me about it directly, I feel like they look to me to develop or model for the younger people in the office. I hate feeling like this, and I don’t want to remain in this low-paying job. What should I do?”
