    Is there a job/career thread? I haven't seen one so here we are.




    I just want something that I can deal with until I die. I'm not as concerned about a "career" as you are. There has to be something for a man of your intelligence in that town. Hell, Janice got a job.

    My ultimate goal is "a job I never want to retire from." My short term goal is "just let me know if I'm good at something." My realistic expectations are "cubical, data entry, 8:30-5:30." But with that comes the question of "would I be mentally strong enough to handle that without any sort of hope- be it personal or professional?" (Though without professional potential, I would be no good to anyone personally.) Which then leads to the follow-up question of "who the fuck are you to think that you deserve something better?"

    I work with a significant amount of independence, I just happen to work dead end and mind numbing to the point of panic attacks with steadily decreasing pay.

    Don't you think your ultimate goal is unrealistic? Even the people with the best jobs in the world want to retire from them because after a while it is still a job. I guess there are exceptions to the rule but it has to be a tiny percentage.

    Depends on what you mean by unrealistic and what you mean by job (and why I often say career more than job). Is it unrealistic? Yes. Because most people work miserable jobs that they hate, and, like I said, what makes me think I'm different from them. But I also know that I'm not going to get anywhere personally or professionally unless I'm doing something I find mentally stimulating and want to throw myself into it body and soul. But what that is, I'm at a loss.

    First off, I hit refresh because I knew there would be an edit.

    So what steps are you taking to find your passion besides talking to an idiot on wackbag? Didn't you say you were jealous of G-Baby's gig once? That dude is boring and vanilla and he got the job so why not go for it?

    The problem with finding a passion is being at a place where you're more interested in just wanting to learn that you have some worthwhile skill.

    And you don't think I've scoured websites looking for similar jobs?

    Everyone looks but have you applied and really put the effort out?

    I've applied to numerous jobs, but even finding places to apply to seems to be increasingly difficult. I go to Indeed.com, Craig's List, etc., and the jobs that seem even mildly interesting or are in a field I might be interested in are few and far between. I know there's networking events, but those are also difficult to time and virtually useless in my experience. (Though I admittedly don't go to them.)

    And if you know any other job hunting sites, please let me know.

    Can I work harder? Sure. Can I try harder? Yes. But another issue is not even knowing how to begin with that.

    We all aren't so lucky to play a doctor while living in the looney bin.

    I've seen people suggest that you skip the job sites and email the higher-ups in the company directly. I'm not sure if it works but it is worth trying.

    I'm in a looney bin but I gave myself a really shitty job. I make believe I was once a CEO who was demoted to a janitor.

    That sounds fun in theory but probably not so much in execution.

    I'm a cleaner.

    Yeah, I'm a fucking toilet scrubber. Over the past seven years I've cleaned everything from hospitals, schools, police stations, wineries, prisons and fucking aircraft carriers. I've forgotten more about this job than most cunts will ever know.

    It's probably the lowest thing a person can legally do and still make a living. But right now I'm full-time employed, I have my weekends free, holiday pay and I make about $650 a week after tax.

    I'm 'Regular Joe' personified.

    Yes. I'm looking to hire a former pro athlete who blew all his money and now works as a used car saleman.

    Job description: Jack off and walk around with plastic car keys.
