None. I'm fucking unemployed and it sucks.
I dunno. I just graduated highschool and spent the next few years working bullshit jobs til I finally got into the trade. Aint even gone to college yet. When I do it'll be a trade school and not some university"All these people in the thread with fairly good jobs makes me wonder what went right with you guys,
"All these people in the thread with fairly good jobs makes me wonder what went right with you guys, so awesome job!
I guess my point is that ANY JOB IS A REAL JOB. You put in the hours, you do the work, get paid and deal with the bullshit that comes with the job; therefor it's a real job.
Not at all sure what went right for me other than having a connection or two or bills to pay and willing to do just about anything to pay the rent.To be honest I am not sure what went right either. I went to a trade/technical school and the friends I made there referred me to a cushy job in my field. I work in Hazardous materials compliance, so mostly i just put stickers on stuff people aren't supposed to drink and wait around to answer esoteric questiobs about the code of federal regulations.
I totally agree about all jobs are real jobs; you might even be learning social, administrative or professional skills without realizing it.

Well for the next nine weeks, I'm an Electronics Tech for a School District, doing fire alarm inspections at the moment. Come October, I'm retired from that job and we're moving to the Mid-West. Sixteen years with the school district, got a good retirement package going.
N0t sure whether to teach basic guitar or work part time at the local hardware store. Just need to do something for four years until I can draw my full social security.
What kinda fast food place doesn't have a fryer?Holy shit, am I the first restaurant manager here? I mean it’s fast food (literally hehehehe) but it ain’t a bad gig. I don’t make too much, other restaurants definitely pay their managers more, but I don’t have nasty fucking fryers to clean or grease on every fucking surface. In fact, since I mostly manage weekends in a primarily college town during the summer, most nights are me and my staff getting stoned and dicking around on our phones because there’s literally nothing else to do. It takes no time at all to finish the cleaning list and slicing. Kinda boring tbh.
Okay ngl I had the biggest crush on her lol. I kinda have a thing for frigid milfs.
Good luck! I have two degrees—Graphic Design and Creative writing and English and guess where the majority of my work experience is? Retail. You know why I have a hard time finding "real" jobs?
Retail goes "why are you here with your education?" and things in my fields go "you don't have enough related experience." Except where I live isn't very...design or writing-centric. :/ Trust me, I have applied to every single one in the entire city. The closest people I can get to bite want me an hour and a half away, or to move to the capitol 2 hours away. If I'm moving two hours away I might as well move closer to my wife's family, where their town is so up and coming you basically shout out the window for a job and you'll get one apparently. Seriously I visited for a weekend and got three offers. Three. Just because I was "related" to a regular customer.
However I've managed to net enough this week with the comms I was able to scrounge I can pay 3 of my bills so far! Granted the last two I have left are about $600 worth but at this rate I should be able to make most of it. I had to quit without a job lined up, paid all my bills for this month, and planned on living off of my wife's savings for a bit. So sometimes, you just have to get lucky I guess. If you ever need to chat, I understand what you're going through.
