very slow

2018-10-01 02:22:58 UTC  

Yeah, it really pays to have an in with whatever agency you're looking at.

2018-10-01 02:23:55 UTC  

@Logan that is a maze. It’s a shit test, basically.

2018-10-01 02:24:07 UTC  

Just get through it.

2018-10-01 02:24:28 UTC  

agencies like those recruit hard for military personnel... always seeing them around here and FB ads

2018-10-01 02:25:18 UTC  

@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

2018-10-01 02:25:18 UTC  

@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.

2018-10-01 02:25:27 UTC  

State conservation corps don't get preferential, but VISTA do.

2018-10-01 02:25:29 UTC  

What’s a good major?

2018-10-01 02:26:02 UTC  

@Logan that seems to be the case all around. Sadly.

2018-10-01 02:26:44 UTC  

@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.

2018-10-01 02:27:03 UTC  

@Wotan Klan-GA no joke: HR.

2018-10-01 02:27:24 UTC  

lol a white advocate in HR

2018-10-01 02:27:36 UTC  

That’s a real game changer

2018-10-01 02:27:59 UTC  

@Logan stats is it! So much money. Data science.

2018-10-01 02:28:18 UTC  

@Logan I get a lot of advertisements to work for ICE

2018-10-01 02:29:17 UTC  

@Deleted User that sounds right up my alley. It’s nice, straightforward busy work

2018-10-01 02:29:23 UTC  

Seriously look at indeed or glass door. HR, data science are it. Just have to deal with all your favorite characters.

2018-10-01 02:29:49 UTC  

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

2018-10-01 02:29:58 UTC  

You weren’t trolling about HR? Isn’t that diversity industry crap?

2018-10-01 02:30:03 UTC  
2018-10-01 02:30:27 UTC  

I really regret going to college

2018-10-01 02:30:27 UTC  

No I’m not trolling you. It’s good money.

2018-10-01 02:31:04 UTC  

There’s footage of me at plenty of it. Think it’d be an issue?

2018-10-01 02:31:31 UTC  

Yes. And you’re a white dood

2018-10-01 02:32:11 UTC  

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.

2018-10-01 02:32:18 UTC  

Some of us need to get together and start a political firm.

2018-10-01 02:32:38 UTC  

@Wotan Klan-GA "that guy looks nothing like me. Do I look fat or something?"

2018-10-01 02:32:43 UTC  

that's what I would say

2018-10-01 02:32:45 UTC  

Luckily I never got a hard doxx and I don’t look the same

2018-10-01 02:32:55 UTC  

My advice to younger people would be not to go to college unless you can absolutely afford it

2018-10-01 02:32:58 UTC  

@Jacob where do you see these alleged advertisements?

2018-10-01 02:33:13 UTC  

Instagram lol

2018-10-01 02:33:26 UTC  

I've gotten FBI advertisement, too. But mostly ICE.

2018-10-01 02:33:45 UTC  

@Jacob Same

2018-10-01 02:33:48 UTC  

God, I could do so much cool stuff if I wasn't in college

2018-10-01 02:33:54 UTC  

@Wotan Klan-GA Sincerely deny everything and feign shock. You were never there.

2018-10-01 02:33:58 UTC  

I have no idea how people say it's the best time of your life
