>>9463810 sounds great anon what uni? are you having fun? please tell me more about industrial design, my squad tells me that's the kind of thing i should do but im not sure if i would find a job doing that
>Most /fa/ job I'd say something related to forensics, or maybe some kind of historian or museum curator type guy. Aerospace engineering's p /fa/ too though depending on where you work >My Job Military academy engineering cadet - technically a student but I still get paid I guess
>>9463864 I don't really watch Tv but idk, just seemed to cool to tell people that you did these for a job, maybe just being a model would be pretty /fa/ too depending on who you do it for and how much you get paid for it. More money , more /fa/
>>9464003 No, just wondering why the other poster thought it was a good idea to say that tailoring--a job which involves altering, repairing, and making clothes--is not fashionable, especially when this thread is about fashionable jobs, not ones which will make you massive amounts of money.
>>9463627 I work PR in one of the biggest marketing agencies in my country. It's a fun job, and the people that work here are all at least somewhat fashionable. The pay is also highly above the average of my country, so that's good.
But I'd say the most /fa/ thing would be what Jep did in The Great Beauty. Write a successful novel, spend the rest of your life as a wealthy socialite.
You're trying to tell me that my opinion is objectively wrong. Tailoring not being an /fa/ job is not a fact, and 'lurking more' will not suddenly make me agree with you. You're telling me that I should let an imageboard dictate my opinions.
It's pretty easy to find out how long you've been here, though. How long have you been here?
You haven't even said why you think what you do about tailoring. Guess you just heard it here and sucked it all up?
I'm a merchandiser for Dr pepper. we have a dress code (no blue jeans and a specific polo shirt) but I'm always alone so I just wear whatever I want for pants and any shirt, and if anyone's gonna see my I throw the polo on over whatever shirt I'm wearing at the time.
>>9464260 do what interests you and just don't be shit at your job. Tons of people in fields on that list make good money, but a lot of people just get art history/journalism degrees because they can't make good art/can't write prose.
>>9463845 I'm at Loughborough in the U.K. It's good, but I'd go somewhere else if I had the chance now. I assumed the course would involve allot of colour theory, design theory etc. But all we ever do is drawing practice and live briefs with a big chunk of engineering too. It was advertised as more of a user experience, artsy kind of course but after two years I know that's pretty much bullshit.
Industrial design as a career sounds great though, you can freelance and it's easy enough to find a job. Also for creative people it's pretty fun, although there is allot more beurocracy and research than you'd think. don't take it as a substitute for an art degree like I did. I looked at all the design course types really carefully and found that this would be a good way to apply my art talent to an actual profitable job, and in many ways it is, but I still wish I'd gone to goldsmiths for art when I had the chance. Engineering and sciences don't interest me in the least so that's my downfall. You can find really good arts biased industrial design courses though, and with an industrial design degree you can go into graphic design, illillustration, User Experience and a whole load of other industries.
>>9464260 I know a girl with a masters in art history and she lives in Rome as a full time tour guide for rich art types. If you know your shit and your really passionate you'll go far, if your taking it as a doss like most then obviously don't do it.
>>9464312 She's only 26 so it's early days yet but I'd guess around £24-27000 per annum. Obviously the goal is to be a curator in a high end gallery or museum or a teacher, but really she just loves art history.
the most /fa/ thing would be to write tons of novels, get them all published except for one, become a household name only within your specific art scene, then die only for someone to find your last unpublished novel. it gets published and you become the most important author of your generation
>>9464310 Words of truth. People need to be bold enough to break away from the "effay" mold. Develop your own style and taste, independent of those around you. I may not like the way you dress, but at least it's your own. That's a start.
Stocks guy, it varies, exponential growth for a few years then stagnates, at 600-750k for the past 2 years, too lazy to branch out and break the plateau
Started at 17, downloaded practice account and watched some basic videos on technical analysis, after that it is just trial and error, it's a bit like chess, easy to learn, hard to master, need to use your own wits rather than learning from a book
>>9464677 >600-750k What kind of initial investment did you have to reach such a high level? >practice account and watched some basic videos Mind sharing those resources if you remember them? If not, do you have any recommendations?
>easy to learn, hard to master Do you do algo trading or something quantitative like that? Did you major in something STEM related in college?
The thing about trading is that according to most people I know, it's getting increasingly quantitative, math and CS related, hence why trading firms employ PhDs in statistics and machine learning. Would you say it's useful to build a solid mathematical foundation before getting into trading, or is that completely useless?
>>9464692 >What kind of initial investment did you have to reach such a high level?
Started with 10k from inheritance(after using a practice account with fake money for over a year until i became consistently profitable)
>Mind sharing those resources if you remember them? If not, do you have any recommendations?
Honestly can't remember any of the videos, but really it was just basic stuff, again it is as easy as learning all the chess pieces move and then playing around with them until you find what works for you after tonnes of practice and failures(hence why you only trade with fake money first), a lot of it is attitude and determination.
>Do you do algo trading or something quantitative like that? Did you major in something STEM related in college?
I dropped out of highschool and was/am useless at math, it is more psychology than anything(although a psychology degree won't help), just learning how regular people(idiots mostly) react, when they will panic and sell, when they get optimistic and buy, and learning when to jump in and out before the wave breaks, a lot of it is common sense and your own intuition, then there is some weirder stuff like in the asian markets the japs get freaked out when stuff reaches .13 because it is an unlucky number or something..
The big trading firms love people with CS degrees because they create programs that have like a 53% success rate at trading or whatever so you can throw millions in and make 3% profit on that after a while, that's definitely a smart way to go if you want a normal career relatively stable career with a boss(although you'll become outsourced eventually like most people in that tech industry by A.I), I've heard people making 300k a year salary working for those big firms doing that though, but if working for yourself it isn't necessary
>>9464781 ah i'm from Essex, the nightlife there isn't great but an alleyway and a walkman is better than any club in loughborough
Echoes is the biggest dump going, one of my housemates works there and some of the sights he sees are beyond belief yeah the locals are fucking scum, it gets even worse when you go beyond the high street towards the station
>>9464795 Top kek, I bet. I just walked home behind two lads in tracksuits smoking dole-ups and shouting at people on bikes, it's like they try to be awful people.
Have you ever been on a night out up at the locals clubs down that way? I swear to god that I went in one and there were 10-15 people crowded around some speakers with broken rattley bass listening to speed garage dance mixes. They were all absolutely off it doing full on rave shit and gurning hard in theyre Henleys tracksuits. There was one fat girl passed out in an armchair and the bar tender was a girl who can't have been more than 15. I've never seen anything like it.
To be honest, no. It was and is very difficult. It is SO much work, and why there are whole teams of designers.
I thought it was a good idea to lie because at the time I was working 12 hours a day 6 days a week on a curry truck. At this time I still LOVED clothing and style, and would hand sew a lot of things for myself. However, I'd only get to dress up one day a week, the other 6 were my disgusting curry filled cooks clothes. I would have said anything for that opportunity, so I did. Fake it to make it, you know?
>>9464750 >10k Would you say that's the bare minimum to make significant profits? >basic stuff Yeah so if I just look up "basic technical analysis" and shit like that, it'll be alright?
Okay what you're saying is reassuring because I'm pretty mediocre at math as well. The strange thing is that 99% of people (from /biz/, from college, from my family) are telling me that making money from trading is a pipedream, yet apparently it just takes time and dedication and I have both of those. What am I missing here?
>>9464621 [email protected]/wk from home, and you can make a lot more if you're more focused Got computer science degree, worked various programming jobs Learned iOS, put out a couple of apps as a portfolio
>>9465071 >CS degree Necessary or not? I don't mind learning programming, I just despise the whole "nerd/geek culture" thing. How long is it to become very proficient in iOS/Obj-C? Are there other languages that are lucrative like that?
>>9465222 because the whole thing revolves around being a meganerd
