@alexbaca Oh yeah I work in a very not communications field and I do get job offers, my main problem is location. Either they want me to move to the middle of the country, anther country or they're kinda close but a 45 minute drive either way - no thanks? @Human Centipaul What field crushed your soul away? I mean feel free not to answer but all the curious.
In college I worked both as the lone staff member of the Physics Help desk and as a grader for the Physics department. My adviser was the department chair and told me "your hourly rate for grading is shit, put down that it takes you twice as many hours as it does" The Physics help desk was a ghost down unless it was finals or midterms. I'd write down 3 times as much time as it took me to grade and do it while I was manning the help desk. So getting paid 4 times for work I was doing once, or if I ran out of grading getting paid to do my homework.
@crane your neck I'd love that. I know people who get job offers all the time but I know a big part of that is also their job experience - maybe that's the real secret.
@deepomega Palm Springs?
@garli From the linked story: I rarely go out with friends. We usually do girls night in. Eating out at restaurants isn’t very common. I rarely go shopping. There’s definitely cutbacks, but to me it’s worth it because the place you live, so much of your time is spent there. Totally.
@Allison The only thing I know is every time I update my profile I get a job offer I don't want. I'm hoping one day to get a job offer I do want. (Without the work of applying for jobs)
Where my socal peeps at to commiserate with? It's crazy but what can you do if you want to live here? You pay.
"I also cleaned up my LinkedIn, though I still don’t understand what makes a good LinkedIn presence." Good point, does anyone know?
@la peagoise Ha, I super feel you on this one. Like, oh, that's Erin's shoes in the last stall. I'll give her some time. The best was when we realized (working stupid late) the second shift dudes like to poop in the lady's room - since no ladies work second shift.
This is insanity. Getting paid to poop is the greatest part of working.
