definitely dealt with recruiters hiring for positions where I work, they bombard us with resumes that have nothing to do with the position, and have clearly been edited to try and match the job description. It's like they dont know we quiz the shit out of a potential hire and can tell if they are googling.
I'm actually surprised to see you'd make that much... would have expected the 50k range. Is your salary common in the industry?
>>721873077 as a fag who recently decided its impossible to avoid work anymore, I have a question to ask. >how do I get over the fear of getting a job I know nothing about? I'm looking at jobs atm but none seem like the kind of thing I'll get the hang of >used to work at a shitty local supermarket where I was just 'told to work' but nothing about how to do it. Bad experience, don't want it happening again >shit short term memory, can't memorize an order thats longer than a 10 word sentence >have no qualifications to do any jobs other than the ordinary stuff, restaurant, kitchen cleaning, store assisting, managing phone calls >every job I looked into I was told "don't do this, this job is too hard" "don't even look at that, look for a better job, trust me" what am I supposed to do?
>>721873077 I work at a music store, making about $9 an hour. I stock old vinyl records in my side of the building, while guitars and other musical things are sold on the other side. The owner is my best friend so I get a great discount on records and guitar stuff, and once a month we play a concert in the store and sometimes I play with the band, so I'm fairly happy with my job. I've been told that I may be looking at a managerial position soon
>>721875749 sounds like you had a shitty manager. Their fault not yours. With entry level jobs theyre supposed to instruct and guide you, so just get back out there and be honest with them. Tell them that you dont know what youre supposed to do and they will help you. Trust people more. Most people arent trying to fuck you over.
I do recieving for a hard ware store and make about $350 to $450 a week. I hate it.
I went to college for forensics which was a mistake because there are no jobs so now I am taking coding classes at a two year so I can hopefully become web designer. Any tips on what will make me a more marketable person in web design? I just started taking html and Java with other basic stuff too and love it.
>>721875293 Most companies offer all the technical training you need for in depth diagnostics. You would need some basic knowledge of engines and accessories like alternators, turbochargers, oil and water pumps, etc. Also, a good understanding of electronics, and how to use a digital multi meter.
Once you know the basic components of the power train and drive train, it all comes down to following the process of elimination. Most fault codes come with a trouble tree that guides you along until you either eliminate that possibility, or find your problem.
If you were to sign on with a shop right now, you'd probably do mostly oil changes, tires, light repairs, and maybe outer engine work. Replacing belts, hoses, stuff like that.
I will say this, it's not a cheap trade. I've got about 10k invested in my tools. Granted, you buy them over time and as you need them. But they aren't cheap.
>>721875749 do you have a mental impairment of sorts? if not, you can learn any low qualification job from scratch >lie you have cash register experience on your resumé >"learning" one takes literally 2 minutes >get job as retail zombie(like me) >??? >profit!
>>721873077 I work as an instrumentation tech at a power plant in Arizona.
$43 per hour (eventually; I'm in training). Stupid hours (can vary wildly and depends on incompetent managers) and stupid people (mostly).
I contemplate suicide frequently, but don't do it because my wife and son keep me going. I try not to burden them with things, so i don't think they know how bad it is. I can't blame it all on the job, but it doesn't help.
>>721875749 I also wanted to add that I'm an extremely 'worried' person, I don't think I'll be able to mentally handle a job thats 'unpredictable' in a way, like odd working hours, always expecting to do something new like one day you're stocking shelves and next month you're told to do something completely new and then if you fuck up on your trial period you're out of the picture and need to find a new job/repeat the learning process of a job...
I'm retarded I know but I ran out of options in life and look to just live to the end in monotony with a boring, repetitive job
>>721875928 I know that, its just an experience that scarred me in a way, I can't help myself but to avoid getting a job, like being picky in what I apply for.
>>721876091 I think I'm reasonably normal, I think its just that I'm like my mother, I worry about everything twice as much since she pretty much steered my dad's life into a right direction because he didn't give a fuck. I'm just extremely worried about everything, even if its a simple thing. I applied for many regular jobs, cleaning shit in a kitchen in a few cafes, store assisting in local supermarkets and all that. But I'm looking to move out at the same time and finding a cheap enough house + a job to go with it is tough >can't find a job locally, place is dead, everyone leaves when they have a chance. Looking for that chance now
I work for Walmart in Canada doing inventory management. Its alright I dont make a whole lot but its still $13 an hour. I try to not work too much and enjoy myself. Unfortunately I came from a very shitty family which put me in debt so never had the opportunity to go to college for a proper education and career.
I mostly work on underwater oil pipelines. I basically stay in chamber that's pressurised to the depth my team and I are working. Saves time on the decompression process and we can work as long as we need to. My job doesn't make sense to a lot of people just because there are specific gas/physics laws that only matter to divers.
No set salary but I'm expecting to make £150,000 this year
I'm very lucky, it could be so much worse. I could be doing investment banking for ludicrous hours doing monotonous monkey work for less money. Or I could be a solicitor in a commercial law firm doing equally uninspiring work for worse hours for less pay.
The hours are very good. I work from about 09:00 to about 18:00 or 19:00 most days. The work is intellectually challenging, varied and rewarding.
>>721877446 Ehh I tried to help my mother keep her house by helping pay her mortgage and bills. She faked a stroke for attention and then became a professional victim. It was way more than I could handle but before I had a huge falling out with her it put me in a lot of debt because I thought of the house as a future investment for if she retires and what not.
Long story short it just cost way too much and she snapped so I had to leave. Now im in a lot of debt and working an hourly job. It sucks but thats life.
>>721873077 No formal employment, but I make quite a bit of money through art. I do some work at my brother's garage doing custom painjobs and designing overlays, I occasionally work at a friend's tattoo parlor when he needs somebody with my style, plus I sell stuff at art shows, get commissions, and make some money of patreon for my digital art.
Kind of a feast or famine type deal. I've had times where I've sold a piece for 11k at an art show, then I've had other times where I was struggling to pay the bills. But I make my own hours, I never "work" more than 20 hours a week (though what is or isn't work kind of blurs when your hobby is your job), and I still make 60-80k a year, and I'm doing a job I love.
>>721877890 male. it was this one weekend last summer, i didnt really have any money at the time and i was bored and doing adderall with my friend greg, and he suggested we go escorting as a team. so we went onto backpage and there were a ton of hot guys. but no crossdressers or sissies. so we dressed up in girls stuff and posted an ad. like an hour later we fucked this dad looking guy
>>721878294 I used to work as a welder. Took a 6 month class at a local tech, got a job at a pipe company as a welder, made $32 per hour, averaging 11 hour days, but I only worked 4 days a week. Pretty quickly had more money than I knew what to do with, but it can be hard on your body over time depending on where you're working.
Bartender/Mixologist in a posh clubhouse £15 an hour I love the job itself, but not where I'm doing it, I'm 18, and wish I was working in a more youthful bar, not a place where I can actually feel my clients growing old...
>>721878640 Yeah, that's pretty common if you aren't on staff with a specific company like I was. A lot of guys just work with construction companies during the summer and fall, and spend the rest of the year just dicking around. Considered doing that myself, but I just worked for 3 years straight instead to save up a few hundred k to have something to fall back on while I got my next career going.
>>721873077 The polite term for what I do is "Corporate Securities Contractor". I basically ride in the passenger seat of a truck in convoys in *insert third world shithole here* and "dissuade" people who try to stop us, usually with threats, sometimes with bullets.
$125k a year. 2 months on, one month off. Lots of traveling, lots of seeing new places, most of which are total shitholes once you step out of the hotel. I occasionally get to shoot at people though, which is nice, though they often shoot back, which is less nice.
>>721878549 >What was the path to becoming a commercial barrister? First I studied humanities and social science A-levels at sixth form (History, Literature, Politics, and Law). Then I applied to study law at undergraduate. During my time as an undergraduate I did debating, mooting, mini-pupillages (short internships with barristers' sets). Then I did 2 master's degrees. During the year of my last one I applied for pupillage with commercial barrister sets. A pupillage is the formal 'apprenticeship' needed to qualify as a barrister. I secured a pupillage then went on the Bar Professional Training Course for a year. The BPTC is required before undertaking pupillage. During pupillage I worked hard and was kept on as a full-time tenant at the set.
>Also what university did you go to? Cambridge for undergraduate, Oxford then Harvard for masters'
Television production at a small locally owned TV Station. It's a skeleton crew, but we're like family.
$350 a week most of the year (get paid extra for any outside of the office projects besides commercial shoots) Also get a small commission on any advertising sales if I decide to do that.
Best job I've ever had. I come in when I want and leave when I want (usually work 10 to 5). Boss doesn't care as long as my work is done. We goof off a lot. It is NEVER boring. Doesn't pay much, but my wife and I get by on our combined income. Super low stress.
around $1500 a month, but for the past 6 months I racked up a lot of overtime which was very nice. Overall it is enough to pay all my bills and have some extra saved up for personal stuff or for emergencies.
Yeah it's a pretty chill job. Mostly deal with truckers all day. Even if something happens I'm just told to call the cops or an ambulance. I also get 3 days off a week so that's pretty rad.
Translating stuff online. Currently earning between 3 and 4 k dorrars a month while working what amounts to part-time hours when I'm not busy reading, playing games or going to the pub getting sloshed.
The work is boring, but I can listen to my own music, drink my own coffee, take a break whenever I want and earn more than I would in a fair to middling lower office position.
>>721879704 >Wait, you get to kill people for your job? Yes, but it's highly discouraged. It makes for bad press, and strains relationships between local "governments" and the company if we're just gunning people down in the streets.
>I thought that was just a military/cop thing. I mean, it kind of still is in a way. Pretty much everyone I work with is either ex military or ex police. We're employed by a private company now, but it's not like we're actually being tasked to go out and kill people (though that does happen with other companies), we're just guarding trucks, and we do what we have to get everything where it needs to go. Sometimes that means shooting some dumb fucker, though some of the time we're not actually allowed to kill anyone. We get guns, but we aren't allowed to shoot. Those are the real nerve wracking jobs.
>How do you even get hired for that? Like I said, most of us are either ex military or ex cops, and if a company needs guys to react well under pressure, it's best to get people who've been trained to do that already.
