How's the job search going, robots? Mine is going fucking bad and I'm legitimately about to kill myself because my options are severely limited and I can hardly take it anymore.
>>
Chin up, brother robot
>>
>>25598506

It's seriously hard to keep my chin up. I used to have things together, but as I keep getting older things are starting to fall apart more and more.

About to take an overnight security for a measly $10/hr

And I signed a lease I shouldn't have

And I moved to the middle floor out of three floors and my upstairs neighbor is a stomping jackass. Not sure I will be able to sleep during the day

For the first time in my life, suicide is becoming a truly viable solution
>>
Moved into an apartment with a housemate, looking for a job while I am in school at the moment.
Even though I have 3 years experience in retail, finding a job is grueling. Here's hoping I find one soon.

Good luck robots.
>>
>>25598554

How'd you get the job?
>>
>>25598609
I applied and they hired me. They just need a warm body to check the doors every 15mins
>>
>>25598469
kill yourself.

Even if you find a job it will be minimum wage and you'll be a worthless human being.
>>
>>25598645

I wish they'd have something like that here. All of the anything is in the city next to my town, and even for those jobs you need a guard card.
>>
>>25598469
I know that feel bro.

I resent people who have a smooth ride, it seems all so fickle and arbitrary who struggles and who doesn't.

Just don't get into the habit of being a resentful little shit who blames the system and does nothing to advance their knowledge or skills to make themselves more employable.

At my worst, I was such a little bitch, calling for socialism and everything.

Self improve your ass until it feels good

Socialism would work if it weren't for niggers, who will abuse it.

>Need to take semester off of college because of finances and scheduling issues

I'm hoping that one of these nights I'll fall asleep forever, I'm going to be fucking homeless in as little as a few weeks if my luck doesn't magically turn itself around for god damn fucking once.

Fuck off, don't perpetuate the "le epic ez security job for robots :^)" meme. You need to be licensed and experienced regardless of the position, and you'll be competing with retired baby boomers who have friends everywhere.

i was happier as a neet
my current job is a fucking nightmare.

ive already called out like 3 times in a 2 month span. god, u can't even begin to describe the hell this job is. it physically makes me sick
>>
>>25598822
60 applications to just 5 companies?
>>
>>25598887
what do you do?

Yeah well I have a job and working fucking sucks. I have almost no time for myself anymore. I'm always tired as fuck, no time or energy to hit the gym, binge eating and drinking, over all sadness.

45m walk, 1hr 30min a day sounds awesome man. Ad long as normies don't try throwing things at you from their cars, which is why I don't walk near the roads

Go rural. Door to door, offer labour. Back-breaking, time-consuming hard work for minimal profits. You will get fit and have a taste of what it is like to live.

You could kill yourself, on the other hand.

>>25598469
Still waiting to hear back from an interview I had just before christmas.

Worst time for an interview is just before everyone takes 2 weeks off. I don't even know if its still open.

Sent a followup letter, didn't even acknowledge it
>>
>>25598822
Good luck, senpai. Took me 2 years to finally get a permanent job after graduating.
>>
Go to cragslist and get a job in sales. Study your fucking script. You will make $$$ I guarantee it and it'll be better than working by hourly wage.

You can skip the whole interview process shit if you look for jobs on the listing of crags.

2 days off
12 days 2:30 pm - 10:30 pm
2 days off
12 days 10:30 pm - 6:30 am
2 days off

Does this factory have safety netting to prevent workers from committing suicide like in China?
>>
>>25602165
no, but i always make the joke that it should. i was loudly bitching about having to work 12 days on 2 days off in front of my cocksucker boss (our normal schedule is 10 on 4 off, which changed to 11 on 3 off, which changed to 12 on 2 off.) he bitched me out and threatened me by saying he 'just had to lay off 15 people who would be happy to have this job.'

took all my will power not to tell him to suck my fucking asshole. cant wait to quit this miserable white nigger shithole. 7 more months and i move to a new city and go back to school for my masters degree, thank fucking god.
>>
>>25602254

Gotta rack up some more debt sempai
>>
>>25602304
masters in accounting with CPA eligibility (plan on taking the CPA exams, too.) very good job prospects.

I'm always afraid that when I walk some asshole is going to hit me and no one will care because I'll be dead (thank God) and he'll just go away. No witnesses.

Cars are a plague.

>I'm always afraid that when I walk some asshole is going to hit me and no one will care because I'll be dead (thank God) and he'll just go away. No witnesses.
I actually want this to happen to me
i'm to scared to kill myself because people will say shit like "I never thought he would do it" "he showed no warning signs" "what a selfish thing to do"

the only way I can think of where it look like an accident would be to go camping and "fall" off a cliff

>>25602852

I was interviewed last Saturday and when the interview went well, the interviewer shook my hand and said he'd call me either way on Tuesday after he was done interviewing everyone.

No call.

Fucking liars.
>>
>>25598469
My parents applied for me and I have been getting calls this week but I haven't answered any.

The other day my mom hinted that she was going to sign me up in a dating site also.

This is so horrible. Please send help.
