Are there any /g/-related jobs which pay $15/hour or more and which I can get in under two months with no prior qualifications or experience? (Or if I self-study in that time.) Thread continued fromwhich I guess was NSFW and got moderated.
if you can tell people to reboot, how to connect a printer, understand the basics of rdp/vnc, and a basic understanding of domain vs local, you should be able to land a job. we've hired people with less knowledge that showed an ability to learn.
I get that it's hard, and if you're not anti-social, it just takes work to make friends.
stage 1 is to practice talking to people. not just people you want to be friends with, not just sluts you want to fuck. everyone. be friendly to strangers on the bus, at the grocery store, anywhere you can practice interaction, do it.
sweet doubledoubles m8.
sucks about your location. have you tried finding people online in games where you have a similar interest? or on 4chan?
I've found out that two of my coworkers are /b/ros, and oldfags at that. we never discuss that we come here, but we have the occasional drink after work.
You've just described a helpdesk job.
They'll give you a 1 month paid training and then you'll be doing the worst office job in the world.
It's just useful to get some work experience or get some cash for college.
At least once you have a degree it's a bit better than having burger flipping experience.
Mobile phone support pays a bit more where I live. But it's the lowest tier tech job filled with immigrants don't expect too much. You won't get better without experience or a degree.
you dont want friends from 4chan.
seriously, any social 4chan users are memespouting kids. literal autism. the kind of friend who always tells jokes but none are funny and you spend the entire day fake laughing and they never figure it out
Here it was 12$ to 16$ with mobile phones and "specialized" places being on the higher-end and ISPs being on the lower-end. I quit after a year went back to school. Enjoy Muslim work culture.
Look bro, you get paid for what you can produce.
If you want $15 an hour, you must produce MORE than $15 an hour for your employer.
Can you earn $15 an hour with no qualifications or experiance?
Well, qualifications are evidence of ability in leui of experiance.
Both experaince and qualifications evidence your ability to produce mre than $15 dollars an hour.
So reframe your question.......
Can I get a job earning $15 an hour with no ability to evidence by ability to earn $15 an hour.
Find a job, earn your keep and use your free time to work on skills which will enable you to produce more $ per hour.
1. Get a job so don't die.
2. Work on skills that enable greater $ producion.
Which portions would be outdated?
I'm looking to do a program to become a system admin/network engineer etc.
My local college has 3 offerings which take 2 years, 3 years, or 4 years. I don't really know what the opportunity differences would be between them or if any of them are overkill.
Mind taking a look?
2 year technician diploma: http://www.centennialcollege.ca/programs-courses/full-time/computer-systems-technician-networking/
3 year technologist diploma:
4 year degree:
Half of the people I talk to say certs are total shit and not worth getting, and here you are acting like they're perfect stand-ins for experience. Which is it? I mean, do you have personal experience in the field? Do you yourself have certs? Just trying to get a clear picture here...
Oh me again.
My father gave me some advise I'll pass on to you fags.
Find the fastest moving industry and get the fuck involved.
He was a telecommunications systems architect.
Because the field grew so quick it was not heavily regulated (which would stunt growth) and graduates had useless knowledge by the time they graduated as the field generated new stuff faster than university could ever catch up.
you don't really need to produce more than that per hour
you just need to be an important part of a whole process that produces a lot monthly
it's pretty abstract
you aren't producing anything by maintaining a machine, but the whole process would be impossible without you maintaining the machine
Not him but in my opinion, they're still better than having nothing. But you can't just stop at them, you've got to take some initiative and dig into the field on your own time. Something that is ALOT harder than getting a piece of paper saying you know your shit.
Its not a clear cut issues.
Is you industry heavily regulated?
If yes, get cert.
Medicine is heavily regulated.
Cert required to work in medicine.
Is the field lightly (or not) regulated?
If yes, don't get cert.
Programming is not heavily regulated.
No cert required.
Art is not regulated.
No cert required.
If your field is not heavily regulated you don't need cert BUT YOU DO NEED TO EVIDENCE ABILITY.
Programming evidenced by github programs etc.
Art evidenced by portfolio.
What is the field?
So in IT you produce IT products.
A cert is evidence of ability to (possibly) produce IT products.
Portfolio of produced IT products is evidence of ability to product IT products.
Both do the same thing.
Portfolio is cheaper, quicker and more applicable.
most of the jobs we're talking about are like what >>47834285 said. you sound like a 16-year-old who dual-enrolled in a business 101 class at a local community college or something
It's really luck
My friend prefers certs because he's a lazy bum and doesn't like to check github accounts. He insists it is a professional way to handle it.
I prefer github accounts because I can actually evaluate the guy's work.
We both work for the same company as resource managers.
No I'm English but I'm not very good at spelling.
Its something I could work improve, but every hour I spend working on spelling is an hour I don't work on something that is actually useful.
>they are basically useless. the best jobs you get from networking
yeah, i thought about rewording it. but yeah, professional networking. you gotta KNOW PEOPLE. you might be turned down for a job that you are better qualified for than the chosen person just because the boss knows someone who really likes the guy. sad but true.
>courteous customer interaction
In my field all of my co-workers are sperg-lords.
yeah, I guess the sad part is that most of us have already been working our asses off without this info. we just think that credentials/GPA is all that matters, etc.
>you don't want friends from 4chan within the last 4 years
the guy I worked with was from the golden age of 2006-2008. there was a single statement of 'the pool is closed due to aids', a nod, and neither of us have mentioned 4chan since.
It pissed me off when I learned this too but the only way around it is to learn stuff and keep learning stuff that makes you indispensable and valuable to someone. There are a lot of skills out there you can learn too.
You might have to work some shitty job while you go to school or learn new skills.
I meant it in the sense that you learn what there is the most demand for because there is probably too much of a shortage for people to just pick people they like over people who have skills.
Nope, not in my exp at least. Best part of my job is my team though. Boss is cool, syseng is chill, and desktop admin is okay. Just ignore other departments outside of calls/emails/meetings and you are fine. I work in a SMB though so ymmv
get 3 year technologist, get your 1 year's worth of coop experience in that program (this is paramount). Boom, you're already marketable with 1 year's worth of experience out of college, giving you the edge over a degree graduate without coop (if their degree program has coop, then that's even better).
