I have a job interview tomorrow
So many nerves
I have a job interview tomorrow
So many nerves
Thanks! I have two actually
Yes in that it’ll provide stability
But no it’s mot my dream job
I can’t afford to do my dream job
I don’t know where to begin
So your just like me haha
Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one 🙂
I do have a plan for a side hustle but I can’t start it until I get a job cause it requires licensing
I don’t trust myself at times with my own career
Lol. I am graduating next semester and accepted an offer to a job I don’t like but it provides a good salary, so I can understand your sentiments
If it makes you feel better I’m
In a place where I swore I would never be in
Congrats on the job offer!!
Satellite and telecommunications
That sounds so cool to me
I will work as a stimulation engineer
How long do you plan to stay in that field?
What’s so bad about it if you don’t mind mr asking?
I wish I could work as a writer tbh
Well for starters. I don’t like electrical engineering
How did you get into it??
Haha. I also did an internship there for 7 months, and didn’t like the work flow or the work difficulty
I was planning to flee to get another job as soon as it ended
I was like, i ain’t ever gonna work there fuck that
I plan on setting boundaries if I get hired
How did that other job go??
Then I got a job offer and saw the starting salary
Guess they liked me enough
What’s the starting salary? (If you don’t mind me asking)
I’m sure you’re very likable
I live in Maryland so the cost of living isn’t insane. And this is quite normal for most jobs in the field but for me it isn’t.
I start at 90k plus 15k starting bonus.
So I couldn’t say no
Well, you can always keep looking.
I mean I am poor poor. That is a different sphere of income to me.
105,000 for one year is insane to me.
Especially your first year too
For a lot of people it ain’t much. But for me it is a lot
105k is the income needed to reach the optima level of happiness (in Certain areas)
If you get a better offer down the line it’s okay to leave
Make sure you can keep that bonus though
Do they make you work crazy hours?
If you don’t mind me asking how did you get such a huge offer ?
But from what I know
A lot work has to be done at night.
Cuz it takes a long time
So even though they say 40 hrs a week
Oh at my past job it was like that
One time it was 6am to 12am
It’s so rude that they overwork us
Can you use macros and automation to speed it up?
I got the offer because I worked with them for a while. I also got lucky
I write simulation code. A lot of the projects need custom algorithms
So I have to write them from scratch
I’m sorry 🥺
That’s so rude of them but fair
If you could change careers, what would you do instead?
Sometimes they will want to implement machine learning algorithms….. into amod
I mean. I did engineering cuz I needed the money fast
But once you get the money ?
I need capital, and engineering was the only way to get it
Like, Microsoft stock
Or other blue chip companies
If you want I can give you financial advice to maximize if you want
I’m an accountant but I enjoy learning about the stock market, taxes, investing and more.
Also property renting
If my parents where loaded
I’d have studied economics
But it is too competitive to get a high paying job
Dude there’s money in economics
It’s just not advertised as much
I know someone with an Econ degree who got paid bank
good luck with your job interview i hope you do well !!
I know but it is rare
And you have to be competitive
And I am not competitive
I want a job in which I can be sure to get money without competing too hard
Though I think the guy had 2
thank you London!
Yeah I also don’t want go to school
For more than 4 years
It’s still competitive in my area
How did you land this job?
Studying code on YouTube help?
School is not what it use to be and it shows.
It’s a cash fire that keeps growing.
I got into a okay university that was top rank for my major
So I did the highest rank major at my school
In the hopes that the prestige would make it easier to land a job
I also knew the ceos son
He was in my engineering class haha
I think electrical engineering is in more demand than my degre
Yeah that’s good! Hey use your connections lol
If someone wanted to learn code would YouTube be a good place to start?
I would say taking a course helps a lot.
Overstock flow is your best friend
My skills are all there
I can’t code without Wi-Fi
I look up things constantly
Sometimes just take code.
lol I can’t code period.
Tbf school teaching memorization is such a joke.
I mean I can’t code.
Wish I had taken more than 1 coding class
But good enough to get hired and fake it till I make it
I learn the language in the job
“Fake it till you make it.” I love that
It was rough. I lied through my teeth to get the job.
I know a couple languages that are similar just not that one
So I had to pick it up as I went by.
Dude; I think we all do that.
That’s pretty smooth.
Most people would give up and let despair in.
You kept going that’s incredible.
I plan on learning to automate some of my work. Some of the work is busy work.
Sounds like your a developer of some sort, right?
Btw if your company offers up an iRa—do it up to 19% if you can afford to.
Thank me later.
I’m actually an accountant and I plan on starting a side hustle as a travel agent, social media manager & blogger.
I don’t want to fully rely on accounting.
It’s going to automate sooner than expected.
Well idk about automating
But I wanna leave my degree in a couple years
I once looked up the percentage and it went from 98% to 99%
I already have a portfolio
My goal right now is to use my income to grow it quickly to the next level
I’ve been planning this since middle school lol.
If you ever need a tax consult, travel agent, an assist with social media or something written send me a dm
You could try being a Notary
I wanna do that too
Like the people that notarize documents!
Notary life I heard is the best
It’s 2000 dollars upfront but afterwords you get pay back and then some
I know one who uses it to pay for presents to family and for themselves.
Yeah. When is your interview?
Well I gotta go
Thanks for chatting with me 🙂
