is /g/ employed or is being neet on here just a meme? my company is hiring and so far our applicants for a front-end web dev are:

>some marketing & sales people
>a scrum master
>a product designer
>two interns
>someone who is "good in photoshop"
>a car mechanic
>or just really bad devs with a completely wrong skill set

what the actual fuck? what are your experiences like from the job seeking or hiring side?

I do remote freelance web dev. Mostly full-stack business logic/workflow automation projects. HTML5/SASS/JS frontend, and usually Node, Python, or Go backend.

Also have native code skills (C, C++, Rust) but don't get much chance to use them. I avoid simple "tweak a Wordpress theme for me" or "PSD to HTML" jobs, because there's way too much competition and way too little respect for people doing basic frontend work. I avoid Freelancer/Upwork/the various other shitty sites, too.

I don't necessarily want to do the remote thing forever though. It's comfy being able to wake up later and skip the commute, but the income inconsistency is stressful. I do it mainly because there are literally no tech jobs in my part of the UK.

I'm trying to make something interesting that'll hopefully let me skip some of the more tedious parts of looking for a job by simply having a portfolio to show off rather than a degree.

I used to be a NEET and have now been employed for over a year. I have to say I miss the NEET lifestyle in some ways. Staying up til morning was amazing and playing games/watching anime all day was great too.

I do like all the money I have now and the ability to do whatever I want but the lack of time is the problem here. Eventhough I enjoy my work I can't stand the people I have to pretend to be normal around.

I never watch anime or play games anymore either.

NEET here, been applying to a bunch of places but no luck. I've been mostly applying to places out of state because locally the companies suck. Most of them out source their work to India.

You better be offering a competitive salary (at least $100k) or you will get nothing but shitty applicants.
>>
>>52976602
can't do that, average salary for a front-end dev in germany is about 50k euros, and the company isn't willing to shell out much more than that.

>>52976543
if you find yourself competing with indian freelancers, you're in big shit. most of them are terrible at programming and do it only because it pays slightly better than whatever local job they can get.

Not really, mostly parents.

Social welfare is already appalling in the states, it covers food and maybe shelter, but everything else is out of reach.

I was tempted to apply when I was out of a job, but the application process is not worth the meagre 300-400 a month.
>>
>>52976668
>if you find yourself competing with indian freelancers, you're in big shit. most of them are terrible at programming
Ya I know, the reason I found out about it was because they were complaining how buggy it was. One company was hiring new junior devs for like $13 an hour to fix one project they out sourced.

not him, but entry level positions typically suck dick especially if it was a contract position which have no benefits.

the air force is a good gig but since he has a degree he would be better off commissioning as an officer rather than enlisting.

It pays well at least. Main problem is that there isn't much better in the area unless you get lucky enough to get into a megacorp. Most startups around me tank because they're hilariously mismanaged even more; I've seen too many MBAs who have no right calling themselves "managers."
>>
>>52973811
I used to have my own freelance team. If you can find enough work, you'll always be able to find people to do it for 40% of the price the employer is willing to pay (telling this out of experience).
As long as you have enough knowledge to check their work you're pretty much fine. No one (not even your government) needs to know about you outsourcing all that work. Great for extra 'under the table' cash.

>>52977546
well then you're retarded for not taking it. if you're seriously going into the air force at least commission. there is absolutely no benefit to enlisting if you have a college degree.

Went from NEET 0 hrs/week to a "good job" soul crushing 50-60 hours a week.

Now my life has purpose and a future^tm but holy shit I don't even have time to enjoy any of the money I'm making.

Maybe it's just a burgerland thing, but people look at me like I'm a flame-breathing dragon when I mention that my ideal job would be 28-32 hours a week.
>>
>>52977657
Get a better job, you should have asked about hours and tried to negotiate before taking it

>>52977657
Why would anyone work 50-60 hours a week? I've done 40 hours and that felt draining.
>>
>>52977682

I kind of knew what i was getting into. The first couple months weren't that bad, doing a manageable 40/wk before the latest metaphorical fire broke out.

Got an unfinished degree and some gaps in my work history, so it's kind of my penance for all those happy days spent playing bass and skateboarding.

Mainly putting up with it for two reasons: 1. Money, so I don't have to share an apartment with dudebros when I finish up my degree and 2. HR purposes, so I can get that magic "2 years experience at $ELITE_COMPANY" that'll get me past the HR sluts.

Unfortunately to my health condition I am not able to leave home for straight 8-11h/day. It suck because I had only one inter during uni and with such low cv its hard to find a job better that js + html + shoop.
