Later, golfhos
« on: June 09, 2008, 05:01:02 PM »

cheers everyone.  nothing to do with you all....

I endured yet another epic failure in life/career and didn't get the job I wanted, but...more important..... vitally needed... (to add insult to injury, it's the only position I have ever been remotely qualified for... in fact it was the perfect match imho)....   with no alternatives in sight, no redeeming skills, and my current contract over at the end of the month....  I'll be spending the rest of my time tieing up my current loose ends and seeking out some (hopefully can find more than 1) minimum wage positions.  Since Sal and I certainly didn't make much $ to begin with before this, this move down will certainly mean cutting all frivolous costs and time wasting activities such as the intertubes and golf.   One last thing... parents, please advise your kids to take practical career paths instead of doing things they excel at but are useless-- I wish mine had. A decent paying, stable job you hate that puts roof over head and food in the stomach is far better than any unstable job you actually enjoy (particularly if you acquire no skills in the process) trust me....

sorry I didn't get to tee it up with or meet more of you.  maybe in a parallel universe. 

Someone please cheer the Steelers and Penguins on for me.

Aske out.

Dude - I know you feel like you've specialized yourself into uselessness (and feel particularly crappy right now) - but you still have a bachelors degree in something more general, yes?  Time to just take what's available there until better comes along? Certainly something better than GED-equivalency work.  99% of the people in the world do not get the 'perfect' job out of school - they work up to it.  Don't be too proud to 'pay your dues'.

In any case - temporary poverty - that sucks  Sad

Good luck!

Man I am sorry. I wish the two of you luck.

And I agree with hobbit here, you should be able to find something better then drive through cashier.

Well, that blows.

Good luck with the altered job search.  And +1 to hobbit's thoughts on that.

I wish you and Sal the best. I know something will come along, then you will be back on bothering me and telling me not to watch your sport teams play!

Best wishes and talk to you soon!

What are your bachelor's and master's degrees in?

I would suggest getting yourself a gubmint job--even if it's entry-level. Put in your 8.5 hours per day, and spend your evenings and weekend trying to find the solution to the world's energy crisis.

BTW, here's one in Pittsburgh and it's not an entry-level job. Oh, and there are two billets for this position, so you double your chances.

Here's another one that starts off at GS-09 with promotion potential to GS-12. Also two vacancies. All these openings in Pittsburgh come in pairs apparently.

Sorry to hear that man.

Have you considered actuarial work?  Take a look at the society of actuaries website.  With your background in statistical models, probability, etc. the exams should be very doable.  With your current educational background you should get your foot in the door.  A company will pay for all the exams and stuff since actuaries are in great demand.  Essentially anyone that can handle the high level math involved is what is required. 

send in your resume to all the insurance companies around, they are all in need of actuaries.  And just about every actuary becomes one while working for an insurance company in a position similar to mine. 

And they make very good money too.  It is essentially the business world application of what you have learned.

Good luck my friend.   Cheers
