Most of them are probably just coming for the ruse.
I think there are a lot of educated people on here but this seems to be a place to relax rather than to start intellectual debates.
that being said, there are a lot of fucking retards on here that are clearly virgins and NEETS.

23, Unix help desk, which is apparently a thing that still needs doing.
Mid 20s to early 30s, has a job that requires not being an idiot with computers, slightly overweight, and has the mandatory social anxiety. This is of course excluding the kids from /v/ and /b/ who come here for tech support, but thankfully /wsr/ is helping with that.
4chan is the only place left on the internet for shitposting.
Medical. I just despise supporting over the phone so much. I'd rather be a cable monkey. I hope to move up to field support as fast a possible. What I SHOULD do is learn to program.
But that's what all of the internet is like!
Also you don't need to know programming not to be a tard on this board, I've never known a TV that requires its user to know what "Hello world" means.
Same signal-to-noise ratio as the rest of the world with higher concentrations of autism and anime pics.
>java/web front-end code monkey at 2nd rate software company
It pays well for the region, but Microsoft it ain't. But the company is pleasant to work for and has quite a diverse collection of employees.
23, in school for computer science (late starter, spent some time in the army and being a shit bag.
I also work doing basic bitch networking for an ISP. They work around my school schedule so that's nice.
20. Worked at a huge bureaucratic company from 18-19 working on an ecommerce website written in c#.
Anyone here work with ASP.NET web forms. Shit is fucking gay. Luckily I got to jump on a project using MVC before I quit. They paid me shit money ~20 an hour.
Now I'm freelancing and looking to get a job at a big tech company. Boy does it feel good to have connections. My current project is written in CodeIgniter. PHP sucks but it's easier for some code monkey who takes over to pick it up so yeah.
If I get the job I want I'll work in Rails, which does;t sound too bad.
I joined the army as a system administrator (35T) and my first station was Korea, where the unit I was in had some Solaris 9 and 10 servers kicking around. Since I was the only one with anything resembling competence in Unix (I keep a Linux server) I was put in charge of their upkeep. When I got out and was looking for a job, I was contacted about this position through clearancejobs (a job search network for people with security clearances), and while I didn't qualify for the tier 2 position because they wanted someone with a degree, they were able to offer me the help desk position.
Unfortunately it's kind of a "the stars aligned to get me this job" type of story, so I'm not sure how helpful you'll find it.
All I had was the first half of my A+ and a semester worth of study in networking (A net+ class and I was half way though a cisco class) when I got hired. That and my ability / experience communicating with people.
I'm bottom level though. If you want a better position I recommend CCNA, RHCSA, MCSA, and the ability to follow Python and bash. Also knowing how to work with VoIP is a BIG plus. So many call centers need system admins.
college isn't a waste if you know what you want and know how to get it. Just remember the college system isn't there to help you and it isn't your friend but if you know how to use it knowledge is power.
What are some options for entry level /g/ related jobs? Don't care too much about specifics, just want to get my foot in the door for now.
I'm 26 with a BA in Linguistics and a couple of years of receptionist experience. No certs. Learning to program but it will be a while before I can do anything with it.
Read what I wrote here >>52243964
Consider taking some classes at a Jr. College, it might be an easier way to motivate yourself to get certs. Take as many A+ practice tests as you can find online. If you consistently get 60-70% right then I'd consider skipping A+. (This is because 30 to 40% of it is microsoft proprietary bullshit).
If you don't do that well start at A+. If you do that well do a crash course in N+ and quickly move on to studying for your CCNA.
Helpdesk jobs are were you'll wanna start.
Me too, fåm. Me too.
I was diagnosed with bipolar and I suffer from agoraphobia.
Still haven't gone back to the Dr. for the shit though, because they're pretty fucking stupid and they always send me to the wrong specialists.
Motherfuckers do not understand that I'm not suicidal.
In fact I'm the furthest thing from suicidal. I just hate people.
undergrad CS student, working part-time as dev-bitch for random crap at university, about to start masters this year (hopefully)
What's your dream /g/?
Mine is to leave Europe forever and start a job and family somewhere in Alberta
18 and unemployed/NEET
Taking time to learn more about GNU/Linux and potentially learn to program as well. I'm mostly watching anime but every now and then I work on codecademy, and just being on Arch is educational. For example I'm soon putting some of my hard drives into a better computer that someone gave me. Found out all I gotta do to make that work is boot from the fallback option in syslinux and then run mkinitcpio -P.
>>desktop threads, never anything productive on the desktops, no indication of work etc
kek, that's not the point of desktop threads, it's about ricing your desktop and helping others do the same
>battlestation threads are pointless
eh, they're kinda neat, like a physical version of desktop threads
the rest of your points are fair
software developer in electric company
i am a sysadmin/backend developer (muh php)
originally was going to school then got headhunted, dropped out, and been living the startup life since
some companies have sucked balls
but my current one is fucking amazing
19 years young (xD)
-I'm a mechanical engineering student
-I work at a sandwich place and make sandwiches
-I role play a hardworking individual that cares about himself when in reality I hate living and want to kill myself every day but i see too much value in life so i keep on going
Shit job I know but getting paid above minimum wage, 40 hours a week, to sit in a private room and occasionally look at a camera while I watching netflix, play vidya, and[spoiler] jack off [/spoiler]is pretty solid.
i call bullshit
my girlfriend works at a porn store, no movie has subtitles, and we tried to find halarious captions of the scenes but alas they do not exist.
the fuck do you translate?
not him but thats easy to explain
life sucks, and since hes a ME and working a job, i'm sure the stress is fucking killing him.
But then you realize you have the potential to change the world.
Just don't lose that spark anon
I realize that the chance of life even being created and being born in the time we are in right now is not even measurable in how lucky we are to be here.
The fact that life was created from a chain of events that happened at the right place at the right time, completely by chance makes me want to not die. That has extraordinary value to me.
On the other hand, I hate what society has become and is becoming. I hate the people around me and the degeneracy of what the world is becoming. Mainly because religion kept the masses in check, now that people are beginning to realize that religion is just a way to control people and its all fake, more and more people are falling into degeneracy and losing their moral values. The human race is destined for failure because of our incredible flaws, and all people try and do is live in the moment.
People are selfish by nature. Most people don't care about the past, present, or the greater good. Just themselves. They don't care about the planet, science, technology, improving the human race as a whole. They only care about themselves and stupid media things. Video games, movies, TV shows, celebrities. It's ridiculous how society is turning out. We have so much potential yet it's wasted on such meaningless things. I saw a video the other day of Bill Nye trying to explain to some people on TV why finding traces of water on Mars is a huge discovery, and these kids just said "lol who cares about Mars? haha look at what Kim Kardashian tweeted thats so much more important."
There is no god. Life is just life, we are destined to die and anything we do in any of our lives will ultimately be meaningless the way the human race is going. Why even try? Why not quicken the course of nature? Life seems more of a disease and pain than anything else. It would be a lot simpler to just end it all and not have to worry about any of the meaningless things we worry about everyday of our lives. In the end... it doesn't even matter.
software engineer @ memesoft
product isn't very exciting but i am telling myself it's a lot of technical growth, mostly the money is keeping me there. larger aspirations i think but need to figure that out.
No but it pays about as much or better than my desired profession (animation, character design, textures) and is more consistent and unlikely to drop me after a project is finished.
I don't require a ton of expensive crap to make me happy, but stability is nice until I stumble my way into something that isn't crap or doesn't require me to relocate to Bellevue or LA.
As a student I got tricked into a 10hrs editorial website caretaker job, only to find myself as an admin of dozens of vServers, ranging all along from webservers to domain servers and other crap and maintainer for the shittiest PHP codebase ever seen and general IT bitch.
do you just like getting banned or are you just stopid
let go from HP over the summer as part of their "this is our last one we double pinky swear" layoff program, currently wading through a garbage market for whatever job scraps i can find.
did mostly SQL, Perl and Python at the last job with a few hours per week set aside for getting yelled at by clients because they broke the site again.
nope. its actually kind of a sad job. theres time where i have to tuck my pants into my socks before walking into peoples houses. once there was a house with dirty diapers just tossed in the corner of the kitchen.
I'm in Canada, I think most of the community colleges here are private and don't have the best credibility. I do suppose I'll have to risk it to get the biscuit at some point though.
I've been getting my web development skills up to par and hope to land a decent gig by may. I'm going to try to take up photoshop to so I don't have to rely on anyone. Improve my back end skills as well (know basic java) Starting schoo againl at community college too this semester to hold me over, since I dropped out of uni around 19 due to not knowing what I really wanted and partially this
Though it's not my own ultimate fate I fear. It's the possibility of having live through that of my loved ones. Something we all deal with though and more of a reason to enjoy the moment and strive for everything.
Technical lead as in working with computer systems? Sounds fucking interesting, can you elaborate at all? Always been interested in computer applications in the military or with PMCs
>we going to screen the Steve Jobs movie
>from a "movie" file, based on open standards

22, Have a CS Degree and Math Minor.
Unemployed, turned down a job offer for associate software engineer the other day.
Pay wasn't great, distance was too far, and there was some retarded conditions I had to agree to.
Cook and line server at Qdoba Mexican Grill, student. Plan on going to college for compsci this fall, I already do some programming and Linux stuff right now
This made a lot of sense
23, NEET, never had a job in my life, no degree, suicidal, don't know how to help myself, don't expect sympathy or people's time; just want to lay down in a dark quiet place and die.
25, discretionary trader
At the moment no, although I do have an 8 monitor set-up at my desk. However, I hope to move into algo trading in the near future so I suppose then it would be a yes.
