Yeah, it really pays to have an in with whatever agency you're looking at.
Just get through it.
agencies like those recruit hard for military personnel... always seeing them around here and FB ads
@Deleted User someday I may get firefighter and emt trained, spending thousands of dollars and months of my full-time attention but that day is not today. Every other job seems to be a shit test as well. I'll keep applying but I won't expect much
@lonewolf19d This is very true. Veterans do get a leg up. And so do VISTA, which is a joke, because VISTA is the shittiest and least hard core of AmeriCorps programs.
If we are talking about jobs, I’m thinking about finishing school and going into office work that isn’t coding related. I live in the center of the city and I’m geared up to LARP as an Urbanite for a while.
State conservation corps don't get preferential, but VISTA do.
What’s a good major?
@Wotan Klan-GA I've heard stats is good. I got a stats degree but I never did the actuarial exams. Those of my friends who did the actuarial exams are making six figures a few years down the road
So I am writing a paper for school, and citing Robert Putnam. It so happens he is trying to walk back his points about diversity in Bowling Alone. Turns out, he married a Jew and converted.
lol a white advocate in HR
That’s a real game changer
@Deleted User that sounds right up my alley. It’s nice, straightforward busy work
Seriously look at indeed or glass door. HR, data science are it. Just have to deal with all your favorite characters.
i'm currently transitioning out of the military and i dont think i would like to be in any sort of job that is structured anywhere near the military... planning on taking advantage of apprenticeships paid for by the army, leaning towards hvac/sheet metal/welding and get a chance to choose where i work
You weren’t trolling about HR? Isn’t that diversity industry crap?
I really regret going to college
No I’m not trolling you. It’s good money.
There’s footage of me at CVille...like plenty of it. Think it’d be an issue?
Yes. And you’re a white dood
The government is utterly inept and therefore waffles between having too many people and not enough. Right now ICE should need people, nonetheless it will be a long process with multiple steps.
Some of us need to get together and start a political firm.
@Wotan Klan-GA "that guy looks nothing like me. Do I look fat or something?"
that's what I would say
Luckily I never got a hard doxx and I don’t look the same
My advice to younger people would be not to go to college unless you can absolutely afford it
I've gotten FBI advertisement, too. But mostly ICE.
God, I could do so much cool stuff if I wasn't in college
@Wotan Klan-GA Sincerely deny everything and feign shock. You were never there.
I have no idea how people say it's the best time of your life
