yep usually i just lay right down after ARBEIT MACHT FREI, and watch some american dad, lights off at 11pm, wake up at 9 am, in at 12p. the routine i am getting used to. like to get in at least 30 minutes early to settle in, make a good impression. big news of the week is they just laid a ton of people off. i prayed to GOD to bless all of those people and to take me instead, I could actually afford to be laid off, i partly WANT to be laid off , to collect bennies and find a less stressful job hehehe. plus i don’t have a wife and kidz to support and i can just freeload at home (no I would not “freeload” per se.) was not just the newest people, but newness was taken into account AND attendance AND performance. of course it is impossible to accurately judge a persons performance if they’ve just been there a few weeks. this is the type of job where everyone starts out HORRIBLE and then slowly gets better. VERY ROUGH Learning curve. I am fortunate that I have taken to it pretty well and muh performance is actually top notch believe it or not, I am in the top 20% at LEAST, thank GOD. if not top 15%.
so, ironically enough, i sort of WANT to get laid off, but because I’m doing so GOOD, I probably WON’T be. until the expected layoff time I mean.
yep. again, if muh previous job were full time, that would have been the perfect job. loved that stuff. miss it.
found another qt gurl there but the stuff is so stressful I can’t even THINK about anything Heterosexual until the weekend starts.
but yeah the good news is I am surviving, each day is at least 1% better, i am way better this week than I was last week.
but yeah the job is so not fun, it actually makes SKOOL look like a GOOD idea. I would go to skool 80 hours a week instead of this. but then I think of how skool is worthless. but not TRADE skool!
there is a late 40s man at the job who got an Associates In IT with a Specialty in Networking, and could not get a better job because everyone wanted “at least a year of related experience.” IMHO, Networking is a great area to get into, great education choice, however this job does not cover Real Serious Networking and not sure how it would improve his chances of getting a Networking job. Not sure if he has any Cisco Certs though. I would also guess those would help. of course, they’re not going to tell you in Community College that if you don’t get Cisco Certs, you WON’T GET A JOB in the field. Heh. In MY College, I WOULD tell you that. my class would basically be a Cert Prep Course.
Just like me getting Microsoft Certs or COMPTIA certs or whatever. iPhone certs.
ANYWAY. And i still can’t get over the number of military people there. saw a very handsome ~24 year old man in Great Shape with a huge “death before dishonor” marine corps tat on his Bulging Bicep. B-B-B-B-But wouldn’t being a Career Marine be sweeter than THIS? what’s he doing HERE? are all these people being DISCHARGED? or they just don’t want to be DEPLOYED all over the world, and want to stay near home with the FAMILIES I’m guessing. OK valid. reasonable reason. heh. its good to figure things out.
anyway. FAST TRACK. its IMPOSSIBLE to get on the fast track if you’re not YOUNG. you HAVE to be young to get on the FAST TRACK. If you’re not young, it’s just not gonna happen. by definition. so just sit back relax and get on the SLOW track!! Stop WORRYING about the Fast Track!
Take the Slow Track, go to Trade Skool, and when you start yet another Entry Level Job at Age 40, it can finally be a GOOD one!!! You can get a Trade Skool Degree/Diploma/Cert by Age FORTY! Even I could do that! Not like you got a WIFE AND KIDZ stealing your time and money, hehehehe.
so some gurl looks REAL good at 18. remember this motto religiously:
JUST GIVE HER TEN YEARS.
A gurl in the PRIME OF YOUTH will look MARKEDLY less impressive in ten years. she will have lost ALL her power.
TEN SHORT YEARS. that’s all it takes.
Ok, you can go to College/Grad Skool as long as you PROMISE to SCHMOOZE with the profs. If you’re not SCHMOOZING, you shouldn’t BE there. And by schmooze, I mean getting Good Written Recommendations, Friendly, Relaxed Conversations, Dinners, and SOLID JOB LEADS being the best of all. SPECIFIC. NOT VAGUE.
The prof might be super nice but not know of a SINGLE job opening, for example. Well, in this case, get them to write you a SUPER NICE reference!
And if you are too scared and shy to have these kinds of convos with the profs, get the hell out before you waste any more money. and get a crappy job where you can PRACTICE talking to all sorts of people all day and Develop your Social and Communication Skills. Then you can go back to skool and use those new skillz on your profs.
that is the one good thing about muh new stressful job, is its developing that skill. heheh I talk to MANAGERS all day. and then I talk to the Diverse People at my workplace.
Anyhow. SO. Bachelors of Computer Science is a GOOD degree, while Associates of Networking is a BAD degree? huh? What about a Bachelors of Networking? would THAT be enough to get you a Sweet Entry Level Networking Job? (I’m talking Routers and Ethernet and Protocols and Layers and Packets and all that, not LinkedIn and Twitter and Facebook and Schmoozing and Socializing and Talking, although THAT is hella important too.)
Is an Associates version of a Good Bachelors Degree just as Useless as a Useless Bachelors Degree? I dunno. More Later.
