Literally just walk around Beijing and look like you aren't just a tourist, people will come with job offers to you if they spot you. I often just hang out in pubs or cafés alone and someone will walk up to me with a job offer.

If nothings come for a while i'll do a quick thebeijinger daycare english teacher job or something.

It's a great life, you don't need anything but your pale skincolor and somewhat decent looks (I've seen ugly ass people get model jobs here, just for being white.)

The only thing is that you have to be out there, and often can't just sit around in your apartment waiting for jobs to come to you. (Even though sometimes they do.) Seem approachable, and strike up conversations with locals on said bars and cafés.

You don't need it, but just knowing how to introduce yourself and your nationality helps a lot. Also, say n? h?o instead of hello to people. They appreciate that.

Furthermore, when talking to a job provider, adress them by surname and profession. (???? / Di?nwú teacher, so follow their gramatical system on that.)

Software developer. Before tax and with my bonus, $65k/yr.

For a 24 year old who has been out of college for a year in a midsize midwest town, it seems like a lot of money. I did statistics so I get to do development in areas that are more related to that, which I enjoy. I think I might go for a PhD though.

Also, for those interested, it's always best to get into personal finance early. When people mention how much they make, that leaves out health care costs, 401(k), other retirement accounts, stock options, etc. I use my company's employee stock purchase plan to get an extra $3k or so in a bad year, I max out my 401(k) match, and I max out my IRA. Additionally, my health savings account usually adds $800 or so per year, $500 of that being from my employer.

My point is that it's best to keep in mind that the numbers people throw out can mean incredibly different things, and there are plenty of ways to optimize your savings so you can retire earlier or wealthier. I can still go on vacations and make plenty of luxury purchases, but I save and invest first. Takes a load off my mind.

In Denmark, you get paid for studying. If you work part-time along your studies, you're basically rich. Even with the high taxes and equally high cost of living.

32-36 hours isn't part time. If you're listed as part time and not getting benefits you're getting ripped off.

I work part time for $13 an hour (22-28 hrs/week). My take home pay is typically $350-$425 every two weeks with a $100 bonus every month. Once I pay for gas to drive to work and school and back, plus food every day I save maybe $20 from every paycheck.

No idea how you guys afford even basic shit on your min wage jobs. I haven't been able to afford new clothes for over a year. I'm wearing the shittiest clothes at all times of the day. I probably get made fun of behind my back even though I study tons of designers and try to come up with potentially good fits, I just can't realize them because of how little money I have left over every paycheck.

My department is called Patron Services. We are basically concierges for the VIPs that attend the Symphony or Opera.
We'll do anything from exchange tickets to another night or add more if they have more guests to hiring a driver for their evening and buying them dinner before the show.

Sometimes we'll have to take them out to dinner to try and get them to donate more. We also exchange tickets with businesses, so we get spa days, 5 star meals and other fun things. And tattoos once.

Military, at the third lowest rank. Pay isn't that great, but at the moment, I eat free at the chow hall on base and get free medical/life insurance, and discounts on important stuff like auto insurance and stuff. Plus I live on a base right now, so I don't have to pay for rent or anything. I could ideally stick every cent I earn into a savings account and not touch it, and be quite alright.

But I like to splurge every once in a while.

I have mostly C grades, a level 2 in IT (computing for anyone across the pond) and I'm on a health and social care course now.

Am I fucked? Looks like minimum wage is what I'm cut out for and I can't see it getting me far unless I do some shit on the side.

Server, bus boy at overpriced pizza place. I make about 4.63 an hour plus 4-7 dollars in tip outs an hour for busing tables, and serving I make 2.26 an hour plus plus $3-15 dollars in tips every hour. I make 13 cents more than mostly everybody on support and front of house because I got a bonus in 2012 and they did away with those extra weeks worth of pay bonus' so that was the last year to get it. I make about 590-650 every two weeks working around 40 hours or so. I mostly spend my monies on car payment plus insurance and other shitz. I just wear American apparel tri blend shirts, black dickies 874 work pants and dr martens 1925 oxfords. I have two jackets, a levi trucker jacket and a german flecktarn parka. I don't really give a shit about clothes but I have a lot of stuff from levi vintage clothing, our legacy, hickoree's hard goods ect. like 3,000 dollars worth of clothes sitting in my closet from purchases from the last three to two years.

Pro tip: nobody here wears expensive designer shit all the time. ESPECIALLY the brand whores who claim they wear expensive designer shit all the time and call everyone else poorfags.

For every one Loro Piana sweater I have I probably own 5 from brands like Zara or Uniqlo. That's probably typical here. You pick your spots and you make a decent investment when you find a good piece on sale.

No you basically go get your basic certifications from recognized classes(most only last a day), apply to any decent oil construction company, start at the bottom as a laborer for a couple months (which still nets you a really nice sum), pester your boss to operate machinery for a while, get operating hours under your belt, get promoted or leave said job to get promoted at a new company as an operator.

Raises in this line of work are pretty normal if you're competent so your pay will go up with experience. I should also mention it depends a lot on where you work too, western canada pays a lot of money for anything oil related.

I work in a Paul Smith warehouse. Pay sucks big time (barely above minimum wage) and in the couple of years I've worked there, I've seen a handful of stuff I actually like. It's all ridiculously overpriced and I can't believe the prices of some of the things. I literally got my first Paul Smith piece of clothing a few weeks ago (pair of jeans) because I didn't have to pay anything on them (staff discount).

Basically get hired at a movie theater (easy as hell btw, just make sure youre available all day friday and weekends) then after working there for a few months and moving up the ladder a bit you can request to learn about other functional areas of tthe theater(meaning stuff besides concessions and ticket monkey) and projectionist is one of those areas.
