Finding a Job

Recommended Posts

Sweet! Too bad I don't have a PS3 :ninja:

 

I have all the FF series, PS2 and down...

 

If you want a PS3, you need to find a "real" job and stop complaining about how much life sucks.

I value life by doing all I can do and beyond, not by a mere penny.

 

But still, I dare you to find a job around here. I might have to keep my computing technicality as a hobby, though, to broaden my horizon.

I can find a job easy, even as a university student, and it doesn't really matter where I find it. Hence, I have bought much of what I wanted instead of working at Walmart for minimum wage. :ninja:

And how do you plan to do that?

We don't have a lot of technical jobs in this area. I'll have to look outside my area, which atm, I really don't want to do.

 

The companies in this city, all that are looking for people as I, have not had any reply to me.

 

BTW, the top post was not pertaining to jobs. Whatever, do what you think is best.

TL, I finished my Associates Degree 4 years ago. I tried to get a A+ certification, but i was one or two points away from passing it. :ninja: I did pratice tests again, again, and again. All of them, I passed.

 

(When did I ever say I didn't get my degree??)

Well, we live in Canada haha.

 

In the United States and, uncommonly, in Canada, an associate degree is equivalent to the first two years of a four-year college or university degree

Yeah I agree on the Bachelor's... nowadays you're better off with a Master's though.

Not always true..

 

My brother, who flunked out of college, now has a full time job working at a factory. His wife, who never went to college, is working a full time job as a customer support specialist.

 

Several of my friends never went to College and have swell jobs.

 

Never say college is "NEEDED" to find a good job.

 

My Associate's degree was hard enough. Getting my Bachelor's or Master's would be extremely hard for me. I'm smart, but those classes are hard when you have a hearing problem. I sat in the front of the class, but its still hard, especially with the instructors that had an accent.

 

@Preston- there's nothing I really could have done. Re-doing the same degree does nothing. I already know what I need to know.

 

That's what I meant about expanding my possibility. The economy is going down. Several jobs in our community are lost. It's hard, man.

Customer support and factory jobs aren't 'good' jobs by any standards :ninja:

 

Who cares if you can listen or not... take the notes, grab a textbook and a few friends and start studying.

You may consider yourself "smart", but blaming it on the professor is not a particularly good idea. The instructors are more for research than teaching... and they're not directly responsible for your grade. Most professors don't care, and you have to face that. Let's put it in for an actual example: Here at University of Calgary, people in Engineering are NOT idiots. Everyone who comes in has a fixed grade average threshold from five particular courses (No grade booster options allowed) and looks at what high school you're from. By the end of the first year, a lot of people transfer out because it is "hard", and you can't blame it on the faculty because you are responsible for your grade, and not them. There are a handful of professors who teaches well and actually cares, but they're not common. I've had a whole lot of professors that speaks with a terrible accent and cannot teach, and if that stops you from getting a real degree then you're never going to go anywhere. This is post-secondary and it's not elementary school. Keep quiet and study on your own time or with a few buddies.

 

I had a professor last term for differential equations and he has a poor accent, poor/incorrect notes, cannot teach, and the assignments completely don't match the exams. It's the worst scoring course I did for the term (B-) but a lot of people failed. And these people made it through the weeder first year.

 

If you really want to give yourself a benchmark, go try a semester of Engineering here. Guaranteed you'll want to die in 3 weeks. :ninja:

Group studying has always worked for me, if not just hole yourself in a room and mass study notes & textbook. That's how most people cram for exams and MTs anyways.

Minor correction, University level professors are focused on research, not what we call "College" level professors in Canada.

 

Hate to say this to you MoM, but you gotta do something with your life. Disability or otherwise.

 

You simply just don't have the willpower to do anything other than stay at home which is unfortunate.

It really depends. Realistically the job of most professor is to research most of the time and teach the remainder of the time. My current professor (Class I am sitting through right now) teaches 80% of the time because he is a brilliant teacher. :ninja: This is especially true here at the University of Calgary where they call it a "research intensive" university.

Sorry, I meant University level profs are focused on research, whereas College level are focused on teaching.

Yep, the second one makes way more sense. Although, Profs doing research is not a bad thing but sometimes they can't balance properly.
