I went for a job with two years required customer service / marketing department.
My experience was one year on the board of a student association and a two years of maybe working once or twice a month at university events. They just want someone who has done something with their time.
Why the fuck are minimum wage jobs so hard to get?

>>1370572 >you generally have a bad aroma/personality after people get to know you. at least with this most recent place it def wasn't that, the person that made the decision was a higher up manager who I'd never seen or talked to before

The only problem is that if it works you can't do it again
>>1370560 >Sell the property The company is used to work for just kept the properties as part of their portfolio. Walked in and bought a failing property, sent our team(in house renovation crew, got paid a fraction of the cost of a real crew and were criminally unqualified) in to slap a new coat of paint on it, then added it to their list of "luxury apartments",
Last night, I went ahead and decided to do some calculations. I looked at the odds provided by Sportsbetting on the upcoming MLB games (those played today, the 8th), and then looked at FiveThirtyEight's predictions for those games.
Using those predictions and odds, I calculated the Kelly criterion for all of them and found five games which gave a criterion to bet on the favoured team: >Blue Jays/Tigers (63% chance of Jays win, 50/81 odds, bet 3.06% of money on Jays) >Red Sox/Rays (54% chance of Sox win, 25/27 odds, bet 4.32% of money on Sox) >Indians/Yankees (65% chance of Indians win, 100/177 odds, bet 3.05% of money on Indians) >Rockies/Phillies (58% chance of Rockies win, 4/5 odds, bet 5.5% of money on Rockies) >Giants/Diamondbacks (61% chance of Giants win, 25/38 odds, bet 1.72% of money on Giants)
I then started calculating the odds of various outcomes and determined that the probability of a profitable outcome (there were 13 possible outcomes which were profitable, out of 32 total possible outcomes) was 55.1%.
As of writing this (1am EST, July 9), three of the five games turned out as predicted (Jays, Sox, and Indians won), one turned out otherwise (Rockies lost), and the final one is turning out favourably (Giants lead 5-2 at the bottom of the 7th). At this point, it doesn't matter what happens, as the Rockies and Giants losing is one of the possible profitable outcomes, albeit a small profit. (Theoretically using a pool of $100, betting the above percentages would have resulted in $17.65 being bet, and Rockies and Giants losses would result in a 2.15% profit. If the Giants win, however, then the profit is 18.3%.)
As you can see, this kind of mathematical betting turned out to work well. Tonight, I will be doing something similar, for tomorrow's games.
I'll be waiting until the Giants game is over to finish up calculations, but so far I found 3 games. Even though the Dodgers game is ongoing, for them to meet the Kelly criterion, their chance of winning, as per FiveThirtyEight, would have to be at least 69%, and I don't see that happening.
>>1370489 With the Giants win, those bets would have made an 18.3% profit.
For tomorrow, the following seem like mathematically good bets: >1.53% of money on Orioles (57% chance of win, 100/129 odds) >4.54% of money on Red Sox (63% chance of win, 50/79 odds) >3.48% of money on Indians (62% chance of win, 50/77 odds) >3.28% of money on Giants (61% chance of win, 25/37 odds)
Out of 16 possible outcomes, 7 are profitable. They add up to a 61.64% chance of profitability. (The outcomes which are profitable and are not all teams winning or all teams but one winning are the Red Sox and the Indians winning while the others lose along with the Red Sox and the Giants winning while the others lose.)
The expected outcome is a 2.34% profit. However, understand that this is merely an average of all of the statistical outcomes based on their probabilities, assuming FiveThirtyEight's probabilities are accurate.
The two most probable outcomes are all teams winning (13.58% chance, 66.4% profit) and all teams but the Orioles winning (10.25% chance, 45.4% profit).
Bet responsibly and with your own discretion, /biz/.
>>1370450 Both are ultra-trashy. Want to learn marketing? Start by being affiliate. Want to learn management? Work your way up from shelf-stocker in a supermarket. These techniques allow you to earn while you learn, instead of wasting your time and costing you 5-6 figures.
>>1370375 Beats the shit out of me. The original (you can google it, was million dollar website or million dollar homepage or some shit like that) where the guy had a 1k by 1k grid where he sold each block for a buck.
How much monthly/anual income would it take to be considered financially successful? Wether it be by passive income, business or job or a combination of all three. I'm currently making 5k a month net profit from my business.
>>1370324 I consider anyone financially stable to be doing a pretty good job with finance (they never need to borrow money, whether from friends or the government, and have savings in case of an emergency).
I consider anyone that's become financially independent on their own to be very financially successful.
>>1370308 Usually the difference is between pro and amateur, in which case a professional generally has it as his sole source of income and/or can teach it at a level that improves amateur skills to professional levels. Normally there is a 'pro circuit' for such things, like motivational speakers or certain comedy clubs or concert halls of a certain size.
I'm a fisheries manager, been doing it for 10 years in WA and AK. The difference between a pro and a normie is time on deck. If you don't know how shit goes down on the water, you cannot effectively provide technical/policy analysis in order to regulate.
So I suppose a more generic way of saying it is knowing the industry from the ground up. not just coming in laterally from something akin to college or OCS.
>>1370112 The example you provided has done well by Nintendo. The differences between the games were not major and so the workload was not much bigger than it would be if only one game was made. People who were going to buy the game would likely only get one, but theres the case of collectors or just big fans wanting both, meaning a bit extra profit. The only caveat i can think of is printing cost, but they might've just printed what they were going to and split it evenly between the games.
>>1370143 Minor differences but it was essential to have both vesions for 100% completion, thereby driving the social aspect Nintendo were trying to encourage. I'll bet it drove hardware sales too, e.g. instead of sharing a gameboy with a sibling you now want one each so you can play together.
>>1370003 Well you were right but imagine if you were wrong? It could have been a flop and still might be a flop. I played it and honestly its not even a pokemon game. You mostly go around and throw balls at pictures of pokemon. The series was about strategy and this is a super casual game which cant be possibly interesting for very long. The game element is too small. Wait until the hype is over and lets talk about nintendo stock in 3 months.

Can anyone explain to me why buying makes more sense than leasing? Everyone says "because you own the car", except by the time you have paid the car off, it's usually worthless and worth only a fraction of it's private party resale value as a trade-in. What exactly am I missing here..? Or is the buying > leasing thing just a meme?

I've just inherited £200,000. A wealthy aunt passed away and left me and my mum and sister her money. I have no idea what to do with it. I want to invest it for my wife and kids, but honestly have no idea what to do with it. I've always been quite poor. Shopping for clothes at 2nd hand shops and sometimes going hungry so my kids are always fed.
I'm a farmer. My wife is a police officer. So we don't earn a good amount. It's enough to live. I grow wheat and farm sheep for wool.
I seek advice. What should I invest in? I have no clue.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1369800 >grow wheat and farm sheep for wool That can't get you much at all. Perhaps you could use this money to diversify your farm away from these and grow cash crops too?
If you'd rather not bother with that, why not just invest the money in a FTSE tracker fund on hl.co.uk or on fundingcircle.com? The tracker fund will vary in price but give you about 3-4% return per year in dividends. Fundingcircle involved lending money to small and medium sized business. I'm returning... Comment too long.

Serious question though. Is investing in bitcoin and I mean serious investing like over $15000 not profitable. Even if electricty was a non issue? My family owns a farm and we run on natural gas generators. I have done the math with our specific generator and looking at our monthly bill and 10 therms = 1 million btus. our generator is 200 amp with 20 kw 208-240 v
if I were to purchase 16 s7 miners they would they would run the generator at near 100% which is 308000 btus which = 3 therms. A therm costs $.05 so basicaly would be paying $.15 an hour to run these machines rather than $2.58 an hour on electricity. According to bitcoin calculators and adjusting with 7% increase in difficulty monthly i would be making well over $3500 a month
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG. IS THIS A GOLDMINE THAT I SHOULD TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE?
>>1369814 why not? seriously? everybody on this site shuts down anyone starting a bitcoin farm simply on the basis of "power costs will put you negatives". Well I have a natural gas generator not being used and it costs nothing when compared to electricity.
