I'm living off interest right now. I pay a bit for utilities and rent at my mom's place(even she just mooches off the government), so I don't have a lot of expenses. But my money is slowly being drained, and even though I'd be fine for a few years theoretically, I would still like a job.

A coffee shop is hiring, but it's all the way across town, and I have no car. Yes, I can walk, but it takes about an hour and a half. I don't really like that. Other than that, I can really only apply to fast food joints or Wal-Mart.

Thankfully I'm safe for a while, so I have time to not only think about it, but hopefully some neat opportunity will come along. If not, I guess I'll bite the bullet and work at McDonalds or something.

>> No.8746112

A lot of people come out of uni successfully and assume they deserve above minimum wage. In an ordinary economy, when a vast swathe of people already have degrees, that is a little arrogant. Contacts or a very specialized course alone can guarantee that. Otherwise, degrees are just a boon to your name. Now, in a recession, when people with far more experience than you are going for the same low wage jobs you are, you would be stupid to assume you deserve above minimum wage without fighting hard for it. And for those of us without a degree or connections, it's not an easy, but we eventually have to join the melee.

>> No.8746121

This sounds like me, but let's be honest back in the day you could get a good job after leaving college. My problem is it's like minimum wage jobs is all I could get.

I'd love to have a job, but to be stuck working a part-time minimum wage job after having graduated college and taking on student loan debt, well, at that point I would feel like a bigger failure than I am now. If I continue being a NEET, at least I can always tell myself, "My life can always be better tomorrow." Once I get a job, I will have lost my last bit of hope for life.

The same people that were saying, "Go get a college degree or you'll be a loser working at McDonalds!" are now saying, "Go get a job at McDonalds! What? Are you entitled or some shit? Too good to work at McDonalds?!" It's not that I feel like I'm owed anything; it's just about the cost vs. benefit. 4 years spent at college means 4 years I wasn't working at McDonalds or another minimum wage job. That's 4 years of lost wages. To add on top of that, I, and many other college students, took out student loans because college is supposedly a great investment and you'll make 1 million dollars more in your life and everything will be all sunshine and roses. So 4 years of lost wages + 4 years of student loan debt = a shit-ton of money. If all I get out of it is a worthless piece of paper and nothing else, then can anyone blame me for being a little bit pissed and "entitled"?

Regardless, I hope to get some sort of job soon. Maybe save some money and go teach English in Japan or China. They're not glamorous jobs, but it's a lot better than the situation in America.

I hope no one wasted their time reading this rant, but to anyone who has made it this far, listen well: do not assume college will make any difference in your life. If you do want to go to college, major in either engineering or computer science. That's it. Don't pick any other majors or you'll regret it.

A whole number of reasons. Aside the fact that I don't want a job, never have, and never will, it's extremely unlikely that I could get one. I've actually been forced to try at one point in my life. I handed out what must have been over a hundred resumes, followed up at places repeatedly, went to multiple organizations that are supposed to help you get jobs, and did all that. Guess what? No job. Not something I'm exactly broken up about, but that was years ago and now I'm a 23 year old autist who's never had a job in his life, and, well I doubt I can fake wanting one when I loathe the idea with all of my being.

Plus, I'm taking it easy in my apartment and am still theoretically in university anyway.

>> No.8746563

Alright /jp/ let's learn how to dress sharp for an interview!

When going for most entry-level positions dressing in business casual should show that you are responsible enough to NOT look like a slob. That means a decent dress shirt (solid colours preferred), tucked into a pair of half decent slacks or dress pants. Shoes aren't terribly important, just make sure you aren't wearing anything garish or dirty.

Hair should be washed and kept neat. Any facial hair should either be trimmed or shaven off entirely. Brush, floss, and gargle with mouthwash just before you go to the interview. Nasty breath WILL cost you a job.

If any /jp/sie wants to learn to play well, doesn't mind spending hours a day gambling and starting very, very small, I'll back you too! Far much more money in poker than people realise, even though it's less since US got banned from the big sites.

You do have to start very small, learn the game religiously, and be relatively level-headed, though.

>> No.8746742

I don't know. My advice is to learn the game more, go play on a site that has micro micro stakes to play at, and play the smallest games you can.

Thing is, poker has a massive luck element, and skill only really comes into it after playing thousands of tournaments or hundreds of thoudsands of cash game hands. With a $50 br you have a massive chance to bust if you don't play tiny stakes games.

Like, an good sng player (the tournaments with 6-10 people each etc) can expect a 10% return on average after playing masses and masses, at micro stakes. So, play 5000 $2 sngs, be a good player, make $1000 dollars. This obviously isn't the best way to do it, it's much better to play fewer games higher, but that comes once you're sure you can beat the lower games.

so if you actually like the game, don't give up, but start really small, play with really strict br rules (100 buyins for sngs), and expect to play fucking loads if you want to make any decent returns.

It seems like it would be hard to read tells playing poker online. I would like to play mahjong professionally, but I'm not good enough.

I do pretty well in craps though. Spoiler, always make a come bet with odds if you can afford it. You'll have a lot of money on the table but you'll be making cash on each roll until you crap out on a 7. But you'll make some of that bet back when you crap out too. Outside of counting cards the come bet with odds has the best payooff

"Tells" don't really have much place in online poker. It's more about betsizing, telling what type of player the person is, easy to do with HUD software (most of which have month long free trials), and hand ranges.

tbh, go get some hud software, read up as much as you can on preflop play (shoving, raising ranges etc), read up on icm, play a couple thousand turbo sngs, easy money

i'd also discuss hands with /jp/ers to help them learn to play

I've been a NEET for over 10 years now...

I spend as much as 3 month sometimes without even leaving my house..

I haven't been taking proper care of my body as I find myself skinny as fuck, not making much of a good presentation when someone looks to me..

I suffer from OCD, depression, autism and social anxiety; I cannot articulate any phrases or conversations, nor can I even look someone else in the eye.

Anything I learned from High school I long forgot and my resume basically consists of 10 years doing absolutely NOTHING except shitposting, watching chinese cartoons and playing PC games.

Now I really would like to get a job, doing something I like..., maybe be a teacher like I've always dreamed back in my childhood...; getting some money to buy some food, my own house, etc.

But tell me.., in my current state, who would even hire me..?

As a NEET, every day is Friday.

You're exhausted, and yet you keep telling yourself that relaxation will come. Work is behind you and a shining period of comfort lies before you. Not forever, though: you'll go back to work eventually, you keep telling yourself. But you're stuck. And you're alone. You go to bed early, have pizza, and wear your pajamas. And you wait for the Saturday that never comes.

Likely no one, sorry to say.

I wish you good luck in your life whether or not you get a job, though, anon.

Do you have a family business or family members with very strong connections in fields that interest you? That's probably your best and only hope.

I don't know how old you are, but you will basically have to eat shit for 3 years or so to even be considered anywhere.

If you ever want to realise any of that stuff, it's possible, but it'll be hell. You will just have to throw yourself out there. Volunteer somewhere, get used to people again. It's actually relatively easy to talk to people in a professional atmosphere, the topics are clearly defined.
Social stuff is pretty much shitposting as a tripcode user with different subject material.

You'll have to just force yourself to overcome stuff, once you can actually face people, start making plans you know you can actually meet. Volunteer/do temp work until you don't look like total shit to an employer.

Do some adult education course, too, meet new people, add to CV, feel slightly less braindead..

Why would you not wear pajamas?

learn pure math! a few hundred pages of careful reading and problem solving (proofs/exercises) easily encompasses a graduate degree

generally you want a algebra & analysis (calculus) course, and maybe some number theory, linear algebra, geometry and combinatorics

i like jacobsons' basic algebra I and spivaks' calculus

you can ask questions on places like math.stackexchange
