Just depends on the tech stack. Some projects are real easy. My only difficulty is the amount of work. I am managing about 100 separate reports, utilizing about 400 upstream DB tables from about 60 different sources... I am utilizing lots of SQL, PySpark, lots of AWS services and of course BI visualizations. Learning azure now.

I got the job on the spot just by showing it to them, and they added 5k to their initial offer lel

Nice, you definitely work with more volume than I do. I'm with a fairly new BI team so we're just getting started out on the push from on-prem to the cloud. Hopefully I'll get there eventually.

Switched gigs twice since then. Startup wouldn't budge on my comp even though I drew the owl for us, which is when I got my first 2x by switching.

Then I networked with other young, like-minded teammates at the 2nd place and we followed the most senior one when he decided to upgrade. Full remote, even pre-virus!

So, I would say: be willing to move, be willing to switch and move *again*, network.

I am making it seem worse than it is. I don’t have users for more than half these reports, and I have a team that supports me. Always glad to talk to another person that is in this industry. Best of luck to you too anon. You have an amazing start to your career. I work maybe 30 hours a week, and leave whenever I want. It’s barely wage slaving

>> No.22362284

Oh I'll also say that companies that already have a product built are kush. Compensation is not based on how hard you work in software, at all. That's how FAANG companies survive the "women in tech" hype. For every person actually driving development, there's probably 3-5 people resting and vesting, tweaking shit, maintaining ok optics.

I did more in 1 year at a startup than 3 years at big companies. The startup was good for some resume bullet points and getting an understanding of end-to-end software engineering though. Now I'm just leveraging that.

At this point, I'm hoping crypto can get me away from low level coding. I just want to make strategic decisions, help with hiring, manage outage communications, run presentations, and so on.

Don‘t go into accounting, it‘s soul crushing and as boring as it gets. If you are not a complete aspie try to move into asset management or trading.

Like other Anons ITT, I was hopeless/unemployed/depressed af in my early 20s. Just posting this to let you know that you too can make it anon. Being an awkward and lazy af INTP, I thought I wasn’t cut out for the corporate world at all desu.

Turns out, being a support main IRL is easy as fuck and pays incredibly well. Great opportunity to be practical, call the shots, but also not really work that much (4-5 hours/day). Outside of consulting, you also just file bugs on the product. My coworkers who play vidya are fucking 100x better at identifying bugs than my Stacy coworkers.

A bit cucking when you realize that you’re protecting millions in revenue for the company per quarter and still don’t get 6 figs, but I never thought I’d be making $90k+ by 27.

Doctors often start their own private practices as well, so you could venture into your own 'business' of sorts if that's something you're very interested in doing.
That being said, young doctors often have extremely tight schedules, I'd imagine the extent of which would depend on the field, but it wasn't easy for any of the doctors I know.

Recent Grad here, 22, just finished College in May.

I was in Accounting, but switched to “Information Systems” my Junior year. Got an internship, and now I work for the same company as an engineer.

My advice. Life is picking your “shit sandwich.” You get to chose the “bad part” about your job. So pick one that you don’t mind. People get paid what they’re worth.

In my opinion, learning code / something that is hard for normies is the best strategy. Good Luck have fun.

>> No.22367914

To clarify, I walked into my internship with no prior “applicable” knowledge.

My major was “Information Systems” pretty much “Half-IT” “Half-Business” for kids who are not good enough at math for Computer Science.

My current title is Network Engineer. I work with Cisco products. I manage VoIP services, Troubleshoot Routers and Switches, manage WebEx profiles, and occasionally work on infrastructure projects.

Essentially I’m the guy they yell at when the “internet” is slow. It’s a good 1st job, no complaints.

"Building engineer" does not require a degree. That is basically an HVAC tech for a big building, like a hospital or a hotel.

My job, yes, BS in Mechanical Engineering is required and I use my education every day. The closest thing somebody can do to my job without a degree is become a CAD drafter, but they often went to a 2-year technical school.

If you can keep up in the classes, you have the free time, and you can find a way to do it without going in debt, I'd say it's worth it to get a mechanical engineering degree and become an HVAC engineer. With your hands-on experience, you'd dance circles around the basedboys who think a P trap is spelled pee trap.

Design is fun and my job is cushy af but I’m already on the upper end of pay (relative to my city) unless I jump to a manager or art director role which is waaay more work. I could move to NY or LA and make more but the cost of living is too high to not live like shit. Not to mention design in corporate marketing is the most shallow arbitrary bull shit in the fucking world. I wish I had gotten into finance in highschool but I was a rebellious stoner nerd and thought the idea of a ‘normal 9-5 desk job’ was the worst thing in the world. What’s annoying is I come from an affluent area outside New York where all the Wall Street boys live and commute in to the city, I could have leveraged my nepotistic connections in a fucking heart beat to score a solid job out of college. I’m thinking about learning financial analysis and moving back home to leverage that but I’m afraid I’m too late in the game. Might fall for the code meme and do a boot camp.

I was in accelerated classes and I just daydreamed all day, but often my thoughts would turn extremely negative. Eventually my teachers would let me play DS and shit after I finished all my work because I usually finished faster than everybody else. I didn't really like school, I just suffered through it because I assumed it would get better and I was okay at it because of episodic memory. I didn't really learn I had ADHD until after I finished college with a bogus degree and didn't figure out that everyone else in CompSci (which I dropped out of because I hated coding) was abusing Adderall.
My problem is that I can work well for like... 2 hours I'd say is my max peak motivation time, and after that I need like the rest of the day off, maybe get another 2 hours out if I have a good break and talk to some people, but all the jobs I've been capable of getting have required my utmost focus the whole 8-12 hours with miniscule breaks, nothing to keep my mind focused, and constant social and sensory pressure.
My parents and I just assumed I was ready for the real world because I had gotten through high school by dissociating so hard from the constant stimulus but doing it 8 hours a day 5 days a week with no end is killing me.

What ruined me was college. I learned that not every moment of my life had to be painful tedium. The problem is I don't think I can do this painfulness very long. My Dad did 20 years as a pharmacist doing 10 hour shifts and he suffered massive burn out as a result. I definitely can make the tolerance level higher but I'm not sure I can make it high enough to deal with most jobs. I've done two call center jobs and I just can't do them again, it's not possible, I left after two months at both.

Depends on how good these friends are and how you lay out the title (joint tenancy v.s. tenants in common). You have to calculate your roi for the investment property, divide it by how many investors are involved (assuming equal split) then subtract your yearly mortgage payment and taxes. Depending on your area I would recommend looking for a worn down investment property and try to bid under market for it and renovate it with the difference then rent it out. Ideally youre looking for duplexes and triplexes. I dont know what your budget is or how much work youre willing to put into property management.

Like if you make two trades at 3.5% higher than bought for. Then when you sell you’ve lost -1%. Making the net profit 2.5% before taxes.
