hows the job hunt going lads?

I recently got laid off as a graduate teaching assistant. My university is completely fucked thanks to covid. They're planning to end tenure for a good chunk of staff and just completely shift to online meme degrees for the next academic year and STILL charge $10-20k per semester for them.

I've been trying to tutor zoomers but since exams have all been cancelled or delayed till next year, work has mostly dried up for me. I really think 2020 is the year teachers and professors are kill. Normies are starting to realize they can get an education from sites like YouTube for free, and of much better quality. So once the lockdown is over, no one will want to pay for an education anymore...

Exactly this. My school went zoom, live in an college town, and trying to convince my landlord to half my rent for the rest of 2020. If he agrees I may keep paying half

Take it from me cunt, you don't want to be CADing shit for the rest of your fucking life. I'm here because I'm trying to get out of CAD and into infrastructure planning. FFS just follow the money, none of the meme stem shit. The salesman makes more than the guy who invented the thing they're selling. Architecture is fuck.
