Any robot career jobs out there? Something that I can maybe go to schooling for a year or 2 for, and get a job right after? I'm a 27 year old NEET and really need to make a change in my life. I just have severe social anxiety and don't know how to start my life. I don't want a shitty min wage job because that doesn't help me at all. I feel my options in life are closing tight around my head, and that there is no hope for me.

trade school is the only legit thing that's left out there. Do one of those programs that have you work the internship while you study.

NOTHING else is guaranteed.

I'm in the same boat you're in OP.
I have no idea what the fuck I'm going to do and my autismbux sometimes isn't enough to cover all the bills. I'm fucked when my parents die.
>>
>>25758276
All these sound pretty hard. I think I would get way to nervous doing anything that requires technical work with my hands.
>>
>>25758422
OP, exiting the NEET life will require a lot of work. At 27, with (presumably) no marketable skills, you're very far behind.

Your best bet is to go to trade school for something like the other Anon said. That will give you a career making a good amount of money within a few years.

Take the CompTIA tests. Get A+ certified. Get an entry level IT job. Lots of slacking off, and your poor social skills reinforces people's presumptions, so they're happy.

I'm really horrible with computers, and don't think I'd be able to hold any computer skilled job with only a year of schooling. Especially when there are computer wiz's out there. I was thinking about being a writer or photography. Are these just really stupid things to try a career in?
>>
>>25758730

You need serious connections to make it in writing and photography. And MAYBE in a couple years someone buys your stuff.

In a trade you just go through the process to get licensed and get hooked up.

Well you shouldn't. It's ridiculous.


OP, do you have so little experience with the real world (not the world as reflected through media) that you actually thought these where potential careers in 2016?

I'm just looking for a career that I could possibly enjoy and have fun with. I think writing would be fun, and a career in which I have a lot of free time. Same goes with photography. I just dread going into a job I hate every day for the rest of my life.
>>
>>25759081
Works not fun anon. Your 27 not 17. You shouldn't be so naive.
>>
>>25758276
Anybody an electrician here? That kinda interests me. It seems like the perfect amount of social contact, not enough to make me panic but just enough to keep me from going insane.
>>
>>25759081
Nigga you have no fucking idea. You honestly think writers have a lot of free time? Just stay an at home neet, we don't need anyone as dumb as you outside where you'll end up hurting someone.

>>25759105
I don't know anon. Maybe a little naive, but people ARE photographers and writers and they had to start somewhere. I was just thinking "why not me" is all.

>>25759081
OP it's good you want to exit NEET mode and it's good you have a dream job mode to aim for.

It's more that what a lot of people have who feel empty and lost inside.

You need to get some small time job for cash but use it to aim toward your dream job, whatever it may be and no matter how much people laugh at you.

If you're willing to work hard you can get it. There are people who're in their 60's who are in your position. They would give up anything to wake up in your shoes.

If you dream and you believe you can succeed. BUT ITS GONNA TAKE A SHIT LOAD OF WORK. A LOT. But if you're aiming at something you love, it's gonna feel good to work hard and be one step closer everyday. You can do it man. And remember you will have countless setbacks, DONT GIVE UP, just get back up and keep going.

take the risk anon, fortune favors the brave and all that.

Is there some guide online to study for it?
>>
>>25758730
It still may be the thing for you. There are a lot of jobs out there, and there are a lot of barely competent people holding those jobs. You made it to 4chan, and figured out the user interface. Figuring out user interfaces and knowing how to use Google is pretty much all you'd ever need to do. You can study for free, and just pay to take the tests. It's a pretty small investment. https://www.reddit.com/r/comptia

Work on your writing and photography. Take classes. It might end up working for you, but don't let it be your first option.

Also, try Googling "easiest trades."

Just work at a warehouse. They usually pay a few bucks above min. wage and they aren't terribly social jobs. Decent amount of labor but its good for counterbalance for your presumably sedentary life. Go to school while working, you'll be more motivated to finish school if you're working a rough job.
>>
plenty of options. get an associates degree online for literally $1000 a semester. get a couple IT certificates. go to trade school. get a factory or warehouse job. get a construction job. join the military. marry a widowed old lady and get her shit when she dies. there is literally no excuse to continue being a pathetic NEET. you're an able bodied male, basic job opportunities will be handed to you on a silver platter

You're probably gone but let me tell you this on the off chance you're still lurking. I'm an electrician and it can be super comfy work (indoors just putting together equipment and machines) that pays poorly or super annoying work that pays better but still poorly considering what you're doing (outdoors even in the freezing cold, night shifts, dangerous high voltage work). I think it's the nicest of all the trades but there are so many things you can end up doing it's hard to tell. It depends a lot on where you live and local companies. Either way expect a lot of:
>5 years experience needed
>20 year old with 10 years experience wanted, preferably someone who dropped out of uni so he can do some electrical engineering but we don't have to pay him for a degree
You will find a job but it's likely not going to be a comfy, well paying one and not something you'll want to do for 40+ years.

I worked on ventilation in subway stations and couldn't take it for more than a month. I was underground in small tunnels all day and often wouldn't see another person or any sun all day.

Another job I had was assembling switchboards with a daily quota that was easy to meet for me. It was comfy but autistic work doing the same shit all day. No way I was going to do that for the rest of my life.

In terms of actual work there's very little social contact unless you're installing tv sets or something for people. It can be high pressure and high responsibility, which I can imagine would be hard for a robot, but it really depends.

You can also get into computer repairs, which is super comfy, interesting and fun for me. You get to overcharge normals for simple work and it's easy to start your own business.
>>
>>25758013

You could be a trucker. It doesn't require an education, there is demand for it, and the pay is good. The hours would suck though.
>>
>>25758013

Was in the same boat as you, social anxiety will not help you at all. You have to be in the right mindset to even make a change in your life. Don't bother with career jobs, work on getting work experience in the fields you want to be in. Keep taking courses for certificates that can help you start your own self employment, study trades and brokering, be involved in the technical field and take risks with jobs. Work and use that money to invest in something that might make you money.

Don't bother with a cookie cutter career job, make connections instead. Work hard jobs that pay well for a small amount of hours. Talk to a social worker who can share tips and might even help you with what you need.

If you don't have family support then this is harder. Make sure to cut corners and save as much as you can, be an active member in the community and be honest about your situation with people who can help you. Join orgs that give training.

Research and good luck.

I make $130 a day from those methods not including bi monthly pay outs business I do.

Pretty sure it's a troll thread but there are many ruckus at that age that became successful. You won't be as successful as they are but if you keep posting here with idiots who say you can't then yeah it will be too late. I'm a writer and the only reason you should be here is to be immersed in another culture.
>>
honestly, telemarketing isn't that bad. like yeah you're talking to people on the phone but it's almost robotic speak, you don't even think about it. i started working for telstra recently and i gotta say it's really not that bad, if you can, work inbound, take calls rather than make them. pretty good office conditions and support (superiors don't yell at you) also an easy job to get in general, if you sound awkward in the interview they'll probably still hire you as long as you don't come off as a junky.

>>25765044

Good advice, I don't get these dummies who suggest a zombie job. Situations like this are do or die. I was there too.
>>
>>25764945
>Talk to a social worker who can share tips and might even help you with what you need.
If the social worker knew how to find a good job that pays well then he wouldn't be a social worker.

Those 'job training' people and career advisories are usually bottom of the barrel who couldn't find proper jobs themselves, hence why they're doing this. Not saying you wouldn't get anything positive from them, but don't depend on their advice.
>>
>>25765057
>pretty good office conditions and support (superiors don't yell at you)
This really varies a lot. Telemarketing can mean your regular high pressure, no breaks call center.
>>
>>25764945

The difference between you and anon is ambition. I was in a worse position at 28 and still found a way to survive, granted I was lucky but my whole life was hopeless. Now I make close to 3k a month +2k every bi weekly.

Take risks.
>>
>>25758013
Lab Assistant. 2-3 Years training to be basically a real "Scientists" cuck, but at least it's not the military where you have to take orders blindly amirite.
>>
>>25763351
i have a higher national diploma (I'm in the UK btw, its a level lower than a uni degree) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, but no experience, is it likely i'll find a job with this?
>>
>>25765399
I'm not familiar with the UK job market so take that with a grain of salt, but I'm assuming you'll have little problems finding 'a' job. Finding a job with fair pay and prospects of moving up the social or professional ladder, not so much without experience and/or contacts. Expect some contract work to get your foot in.

Also forgot to say before, there are plenty of comfy electrician jobs where you don't expect them. Hotels usually have an inhouse electrician and that's comfy work, at least it was for me. Banks do too. An electrician friend of mine always brags about working building maintenance for the local UN headquarter, with swiss bank account, confidentiality agreement and everything.

Telemarketing is the closest thing you get to sweatshops in the USA. Probably the worse most stressful and unfulfilling job available.

join the military guard or reserve and go for a job that has some kind of cert(s) you can use on the outside like x ray tech or some shit. met plenty of autismotrons in the military somehow, literally all you have to do is make it through basic and pass pt tests and youre good
