CS/IT nonnies is it worth getting certs on top of a CS degree? like comptia and cybersecurity certs and such? curious if it'll help me find a job/increase salary at all or whether it's not worth the effort

Get your OCA/OCP if you can but it’s difficult. AWS is also good, pretty easy and people are easily dazzled by it. Also ITIL… 4? In my experience anything that’s not trademarked isn’t going to impress people much.

Someone needs to be home during the day in the next few months so people can come in and do renovations. Meaning I'll have to take the afternoon shift. After that, I can take the day shift IF they let me. I want the day shift though, not the afternoon. If I have to do 3 pm to 11 pm for 8 months I'll go fucking ballistic. I have to leave 30 minutes earlier than I'd like because the bus near me is often later getting to where all the buses meet for transfers. So I'll be at work, half an hour early than I need to be.

I have a second round, in person interview at a university tomorrow. I'm meeting 5 different people one on one. I do want this job because it's the pay I'm looking for, and it's a prestigious university with good benefits (according to my friend who's husband just finished his phd from there). Only real downside is that the commute is an hour away from me, and I have to take 2 trains. I've been spoiled the last 5 years, all of my jobs have been in relatively the same area and it's usually a 20-30 minute single train ride. I won't be terribly miffed if I don't get this job because of the commute alone kek.

Does anybody else feel pressured by their peers to take a different job? Right now I work in clothing alterations, and with my education I could also get a job with a fashion company as a junior designer. I work for the alterations place because it's 5 mins away from my home and I don't have my driver's license yet, flexible hours, kind and supportive staff, I'm good at it, etc.
When I talk to people about it they're always like "you should be working for x fashion company, not doing that!" "just because you can't drive doesn't mean you can't commute" but everyone I know who commutes by train to the nearest fashion companies says it sucks and they hate it. I feel like part of the reason why so many young people aren't working now is because they get shit if they take a "scrub" job. It's like damn gimme a fucking minute I'm not going to do this forever. Even if I was, would it be so bad? Clothing alteration is specialized work…

I’m a software engineer and I keep having to deal with these admin/ops types that are simultaneously completely incompetent and so fucking condescending. If your job is to press buttons in your assigned environment as a service to the people who use it, it should be service-oriented. I should be able to say “I want to connect remotely to this SharePoint site to download a file” and THE SharePoint team, who does nothing but SharePoint for a living, should be able to extract meaning from that statement without me having to be a SharePoint expert and know whatever 800 made-up Microsoft terms and jump through a million hoops just to get them to do their jobs. It drives me insane. I’m about to slam my hand in a car door just so I can go to the hospital and not deal with these people. Being in a hospital with a broken hand would be significantly less stressful than dealing with these goons.

Hi there nonnies I need advice. I have to get a job in the next few weeks cause of life reasons and I've been applying to random jobs that sounds interesting but aren't sales.
Today I had an interview at this family run business and they almost hired me on the spot but I have my hesitations. They work 6 days a week and pay the min wage in my country with bonuses depending on how well the business goes. I could get some pretty useful skills here and a long term job but I'm scared I'll be utterly exhausted and have zero time for my loved ones and actual passions.

I'm better at redoing and remembering old knowledge but I have trouble trying to self-learn from a textbook.

Sorry this is such a whinepost. I got a late start and only sort of recently got my degree at 29 for a uncommon field that I thought would be useful and didn't completely hate. I should have realized by my second year of degree-relevant classes that nearly all my peers being former military and LE men that I was going to have a really hard time finding a job.

I could not seem to get anything, I had a number of interviews applying for any entry level job in the field and I just really suck apparently. I've lost any passion and interest for it now and, try as I might, that probably showed in my last few interviews. I'm not what anyone is looking for there so after two years of it I've given up.

This year I decided to just go the "get any decent job" and I'm still not getting anything, it's incredibly soul crushing and I feel like a fucking idiot. I work PT selling food and every day I lose a bit of my will.

thank you so much for the reply. I've thought similarly! Firefighting would put me closer actually, but I struggled to meet the pass requirements for the pac test when I was training myself for it. other women have passed it, it's very possible. Being so short puts me at a disadvantage for the time limit and eventually I quit on it. I know that's on me, I could have tried harder for longer but at my age I decided to go another route.

without getting too specific bc I'm overly paranoid about how small/specific the program is, think more hazmat management/emergency response type field.

I also went hard for safety technician/EHS type jobs for awhile but again, I kept running into the "not what we're looking for" issue and after so many god damn times of it after interview prepping and review, brushing up on stuff I had learned years ago, dressing up nicely and driving out to entire different cities… then sobbing in the hotel after the interview. just failing, over and over.

You are probably familiar with your state's government jobs site looking for roles in that type of field but if not - look it up for some of those simple sit-down jobs you described.

Maybe not the right thread for it, but I'm pretty bearish on white collar cerebral jobs. I think the next waves of technological advancements will make a lot of this more work more superfluous and easy. Not to say that blue collar will be any better kek, but white collar will just become increasingly shit.

In fact, I think this has already been the case for the last fifteen or so years and government regulations have covered it up. I think you could have your average barista working as a pharmacist and there would be little difference. The computer prints out a warning if the doctor's prescription causes a clash with another medication, pharmacists don't need to know how drugs interact with one another anymore. It's insurance and liability reasons propping it up, keeping them pointlessly doing years of medical training to package pills.

I think there will be core cities like London, New York, San Fran, Hong Kong, Singapore that suck up all the genius talent to achieve the next marginal gains, and everywhere else in the world will get the software trickling down from that to allow once high paying careers to be flooded with mediocre talent, driving down the wages.

Fuck no, that's the worst example you could have used. I don't disagree with you except for shit like this. A competent pharmacist would be able to tell you what treatment interfers with what meds and in cases I know like mine when I was a kid/teen and in the case of one of my relatives, once you have a very rare disorder they can help you by giving you information about that. I don't think I can trust your average barista to tell me all the side effects of medications used when you suffer from ankylosing spondylitis and the specific way they can fuck up a fetus when you take said meds as a pregnant patient. And I don't expect your average barista to tell me the difference between the previous and highly dangerous and toxic treatment for childhood onset pituitary dwarfism and the current treatment that's now safe.

Anons, I talked to coworkers and let's just say I need to take advantage of my long term job contract to get my own place NOW because I feel like my company is going to shit. They're not renewing short term contracts for my coworkers who started months after me, they accepted way too much from our client and now we won't be enough people for the workload and they don't plan on hiring more people after that. I'm not even scared or disappointed because I now have more than enough experience to get jobs elsewhere but the timing isn't ideal at all. I'm getting surgery on November so I can't move to another place before that or too soon after that.

I'm so angry and frustrated about my work anons, just gotta rant
I've been working here for 5 years, it was dream come true when I got hired, and it turned out to be even better than I could ever anticipate. There was genuine passion, creativity, love for the industry; the office itself was amazing, perks better than anywhere else, good pay, supportive environment, all that. And then, 3 years in, management slowly began to change. First just moving some people around, then outright "parting ways", few mass firings too. New management was appointed; we were moved to MUCH worse office, less and less things were provided, management started focusing on rewarding and promoting these that would be most cutthroat and willing to exploit others, continuosly push blame on employees as a whole that they're not coming up with enough new ideas for company's future direction while being unable to ever provide any, even basic outline of their own plan. On top of that, COVID and months of remote work, which now turned to hybrid, made people completely apathetic, I haven't seen my teammates faces in months because they're not even turning their cameras on during weekly meetings. Everyone is exhausted, the only topic people ever can think of even during creative brainstorms is what's gonna bring most financial gain, becuase anything else will be heavily scrutinized by the top management. There's no wiggle room for new ideas, for creativity, and really with the company atmosphere slowly and steadily going to shit last 2 years, no one even cares to do that wiggle.
I'm upset, it feels like something amazing was stolen from me, that every day enthusiasm I came to work with. I saw myself at this job for many more years to come, I truly cared for company's projects and it's success, and always tried my best. Now I can't give a damn anymore, and just apathetically watch everything become worse and worse. Good jobs are insanely hard to come by and I hate top management for destroying everyone's morale and passion. Really hope they'll go bankrupt at this point

OAYWRT, I didn't get any result today but I also got no perspective either from my manager when it comes to future interviews. It's kinda depressing because you're either in demand with tech or just completely ignored for months unless you're working in something you're not experimented with. The latter actually drained my motivation to do side projects and to get better at supersonic speeds.

My mom in particular wants to pressure me out in finding something else despite being a cuckoo believing in occult, always complaining that it doesn't go faster and I have to move. But the thing is, I'm exhausted. It's so tiresome to look after yourself everyday and getting a hook in careers FAST FAST AND FASTER.

NTA. I largely agree with your descriptions of how pharmacists can be useful, but pharmacists are so swamped that they spend all their time doing tasks that stop the ship from sinking. These tasks are largely doable by experienced techs (with the assistance of computerized drug interaction checks).

Having a pharmacist know a patient's conditions, meds, other health info, can be a great asset to that patient's health and safety. But retail pharmacists are extremely overworked and have no time for anything that isn't survival. They don't have time for proper counseling, they don't have time for thorough drug reviews, they don't even have time to take a piss.

Mild tinfoil, but I think large pharmacy chains are well aware of this and are seeking to push pharmacists further in this direction so that they can justify replacing them with lower and lower paid workers. I know Walgreens has a system where remote pharmacists can assist in Drug Utilization Reviews, even though they have 0 context on who the patient is or their conditions besides their poorly maintained pharmacy profile. If requirements for in-person pharmacists are lifted, I have no doubts that the industry will move towards having one remote pharmacist "oversee" 2-4 stores at once.

I've seen a lot of pharmacists start to push back against mandatory free counseling for patients. I think this is a step in the wrong direction, because this is one of the few ways where they can make a difference and help instead of being a (very replaceable) cog in the machine. But I sympathize because they have entirely too much on their plates.

TL;DR Pharmacists in concept aren't useless, but corporate pharmacies have forced them into a role where their expertise means very little, and as a consequence, the public has understandably begun to think of pharmacists as useless.

That's never the case wherever I go. I always had pharmacists explain to me a bunch of shit that my doctors already told me just to make sure I don't fuck up while taking the treatments I need, they always make sure the patients understand everything. I'm talking about small pharmacies close to my home though, no idea how it is in other countries.

A couple months ago my company had a week long conference. We all mostly work from home so it was supposed to be this big bonding thing where we could all meet each other and have a chance to work together face to face. It went well for the most part but on the last day, around midnight, I got a message from a coworker who found my instagram and wanted to see if I'd go out for drinks. I vaguely knew who he was because I had seen him around and I'd occasionally meet his stare but he never introduced himself or anything. We hadn't spoken at all the whole week, plus he was older.. maybe around early 40's, and guessing from his instagram he also had kids. I'm in my mid 20's. At first I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and thought that maybe it was a group thing, looking back it I don't know why it would be, but I told him no but tried to be polite because he was quite a bit higher in the company food chain than I am and I was scared of him to be honest. He started asking me about myself and I tried to make conversation for a couple messages but as he started to get more flirty I just stopped responding altogether. I thought "this man is old enough to take the fucking hint" but he didn't. He kept messaging me over and over again - even trying to talk to me through our company's work chat, and kept getting more passive aggressive and angry the longer he got ignored. I blocked him and he just made new accounts. That went on for maybe a whole month and I really wish I had done something more about it but I was scared. Today I learned he is no longer with the company and while that makes me feel a bit better the whole situation just makes me so angry looking back at it. What possesses someone to get so mental about a girl half their age ghosting them after 10 messages? He didn't know me and he didn't even TRY to approach me in public with other coworkers around when it would've been normal. He still would've gotten rejected but at least it wouldn't have been as creepy as the way he went about it. Like… go play with your kids or something. Sleazy old men don't deserve white collar jobs.

I'm being bullied by a coworker. Somehow the entire workplace knows about our feud despite me trying to avoid conflict etc. The coworker is autistic without a doubt and I'm worried she's going to fuck with my work/ job. We have never gotten on and have been working for the same company for about 3 years. I have tried standing up for myself, I have tried acquiescing to her, tried being direct about burying the hatchet but nothing works. Management are aware of the conflict and do their best to roster us apart but over the past week other coworkers have been stirring the pot and mentioning her name to me way more. It's made me ultra paranoid that something is brewing.

One day I will leave this job, but right now I don't want to as it would let her "win" and be really inconvenient for me. It also pays much better than any other companies in the industry around here. The rest of the staff I think I get on with just fine and I've never been in any kind of trouble. But I just can't stop thinking about this bitch. It bleeds into my home life. I try and get my mind off work- go biking, go swimming, play with my dog, talk to my partner but I feel consumed by work and fear that this bully autist is scheming something.

Any advice nonnies? Have you been the target of a workplace bully and managed to stick it out for a while? 2 years and I hopefully will have saved enough money to gtfo and change career altogether.

Nonny my nonny, it's not worth the stress. Apply to other jobs now and prepare for an exit. You're already sick with stress about it all the time and its not good for you. When you find one, send out a nice long email politely explaining the hostility that impeded your productivity and how disappointed you were that you had to leave since you had a lot to offer (mention some good things you did and how you wanted to move up in the company even if you didn't). Cc anyone who would matter but her.

You may feel scared to lose this job but this may also be a turning point into a better one maybe even in a completely different type of role. The lack of job candidates allows for that kind of career pivoting now. I did it myself.

Ignore the notion of "winning or losing" with her. You shouldn't have to put up with it, Let her be toxic over there with someone else and management may finally later see she's the problem. Other than that the only way to "win" is to play her own game back which sounds utterly draining. I'd prefer a fresh start.

An estranged relative of mine who I've always had a contentious relationship with just applied for my job out of nowhere. The only reason she knows where I work is because I offhandedly told her sister one time. The thing is we're not even hiring or have any active postings. She found my bosses contact info on her own and sent him an email requesting an interview. The way I found out is that I was sitting at the front working when she fucking walked in dressed up and holding a file folder. I nearly fell out of my fucking chair. Now she's getting hired and going to start next week. I told my boss I'm not comfortable working with her but he doesn't care because he needs someone to work late evenings. I don't think our shifts will ever overlap, but I just feel so uncomfortable. She hasn't said a word to me about this the entire time. Not a text or a call.

There's a lot of competition in the field but so is in many other "parents-approved" type professions. If you're really passionate and driven, you'll make it, if you just kinda like it, you'll have really hard time going against everyone else. But if it's the former and it's doable for you to get that degree, go for it, otherwise you'll regret every second spent on learning a trade you dont like.

I'm hoping it's a good sign that we took the whole 30 minutes just chatting away and it felt like a really good, natural conversation. When I met with all the members of the other team, it felt really stiff talking to everyone and they all seemed a bit enthused except for when I finally met the head of the department who was chill and one other lady. Ugh, whatever. I won't get my hopes up too high. I did submit my application for another position with another department. Hoping one sticks kek.

I've been searching for a job (fresh out of college) for two months and no bites yet. I know we're in some kind of recession and to not beat myself up too much but this stress is kind of eating at me. I just want a normal office job at this point.
That, and all the weird spam emails from signing up for job sites and spam calls and people who try and trick you. This is hell.

I have several WFH options from the federal government.
The VA wants to pay me $70k a year to answer phones to explain benefits to vets and is fully remote. The other option that pays 65k-90k is verifying immigration status of employees (I-9 form) for USCIS and is also remote. Another position is processing FOIA cases for the NSF but they want me to come in 1 day a week, but pays $75-110k.

All of these are a fuckton better than working in retail manager hell. But which to choose?

No. 1356405

As a former fed employee I'd pick the last one. Won't be as swamped as the first two and sometimes you can get leeway after a while… so they may grant you fully remote status in time.

They are desperate for anybody with any sort of customer service and writing skills. So many people are retiring from the federal government that they need people bad. The only issue is how long the hiring process is for government work. They don't do instant on the spot hires.

No. 1356559

For the VA position they wanted 3 to 5 years of customer service experience. I've been in retail for 10 years from cashier up to my current manager position.

I've worked for two years straight now, which means that if I'm fired I could earn unemployment benefits in full instead of just partially. It's a relief given the rumors I hear about my company and my team. And lol I avoid linkedin like the plague because I fucking hate it but decided to check if I received notifications yesterday and a company contacted me a month ago to ask if I'd be interested to do the job I currently do but in Tokyo for a much better pay. I'm so frustrated I didn't see that before, I truly hate linkedin even more now. Why aren't these retards sending me normal emails instead?

No except if you're in a really tight situation and need that money. It's better to look for a higher paying job. The extra money doesn't mean a lot when you're constantly stressed and have no time for yourself and your loved ones.

Yeah I'll see that later today. But I don't think I'm ready to get a new job at the other side of the planet just yet. The timing is pretty bad, I wanted more exp first to be more marketable. Unrelated but goddamn I HATE being forced to socialize with coworkers so much. We're just three at the office and I want to eat alone and have some peace but of course that one guy wants to follow me to get lunch and eat in the meeting room with me and if I refuse I'll pass for an asocial piece of shit again.

I feel like I'll be fucking stuck at my job. I work for a small company in solar and a guy who I'm supposed to "work together" with doesn't want to give me field experience. I need to stay at least for a year since I already left another solar job I was at for 8 months. But I feel depressed because I'm technically doing less at my job now. I don't know how to climb the ladder. I'm going to get my OSHA 30, but other than that, idk what to do. I'm just depressed. My boyfriend is going to get a good job even though he's only seriously worked for a year because he "worked" at his dad's shop for 10 years even though it was part time and he barely knew anything until the last couple months. It's so discouraging. I don't know what to lie about on my resume. I feel so hopeless.

I landed my first supervisor position last month and I don't think I want to work like this for very long. The supervisory stuff, I enjoy. I feel like I deserve basically not having to do much after so many years of being on my feet constantly.
My biggest issue is the hours I have to work. I get out of work at 7pm, which doesn't leave me with much time to do anything on weekdays. I basically have to work things around doing things on the weekend. I don't have time to do anything on weekdays mornings because I'm already getting ready for work at 7:30am, before anything even opens.
I'm willing to do this position for a couple months, I just really wish the hours were earlier. I'd have no issue getting out at 4pm or 5pm. I like the overtime, but I want to have the time to do things. At 7pm, what is there to do besides go home and sit in front of the TV? I kinda miss working overnights because my free and sleep time existed during the day.
I know I'll find a better position suited to my wants. I just don't know how many months I should stay here. I don't want to leave too early, you know? And like the retard I am, I know I wouldn't want to work these kinds of hours when I have children. I guess for now I'm savoring it and doing what I need to do for a better and peaceful future.

I had an interview on Wednesday and I have no idea how I did. There's one more step in the hiring process (another interview at headquarters), and I really hope I passed the first interview. I hear there's tons of people who heard back already who interviewed the same day. I'm worried this is a bad sign since I haven't received the email just yet. It's the weekend now so I won't know til next week for sure but damn I want this job so bad.

Am I fucking retarded for using a nickname/alies on my cv?

I'm slavic, living in europe and most people can't fucking pronounce my last name and after years of this shit I'm tired. Like there's a meeting and everyone gets called by last name, except for me. They use my first name. It makes me feel uncomfortable since I don't like my first name but don't want to change it but I also find the situation unprofessional.

Right now I'm working for a german company and the fucking morons get even my FIRST NAME wrong because it's pronounced the same as the german word wieder. It confuses the absolute shit out of them for some reason.

I'm so so SO tired of the bullshit. Which is why I want to use my nickname. It's just a single letter, nothing edgy or special, uNIqE.

No. 1361468

Nah. I've seen a lot of online applications nowadays ask you to put in your full name and then what name or nickname you prefer to go by. Since it's just something simple and nothing edgy I see nothing wrong or weird with it.

My boss has a large dog named [redacted] that comes to the office with her. Our office is the size of a broom closet. The dog has many annoying traits unsuitable for an office, but the worst thing is that she pressures me to feed the dog my lunches and snacks. One time I was eating spaghetti when she came in with the dog after her second 1hr walk of the day and said “Great! Looks like [redacted]’s not too late for spaghetti!”
We have carpet, so what, did she want me to slop the spaghetti on the floor and let the dog glorp it down that way or was I supposed to let the dog slobber out of my Tupperware? It’s fucking spaghetti. What the fuck.

There's a very realistic chance that the company I work for now could be my last. I'm an unskilled worker that has no degree right now but this job might in the future pay for me to get one. I could definitely stay with them for my entire career and work my way if I want. However high up I choose to go. The job security is great but nothing beats the fact that it's fairly dull stuff. It's basically 50% office work and 50% interacting with physical inventory. How do I cope with the fact that it's not thrilling stuff? The only thing I've thought of that might be helpful in the here and now and in the future is speaking with my therapist about it and doing something like regularly acknowledging that my work is not me. I do not have to let it be this lackluster spot in my life etc. Any ideas?

Decided I'm just going to call all the places I've already applied online and ask how my application is or if the job is available then ask if there's any interview times. Already called one and she said I can come in tomorrow so hopefully I can take a bunch of printed resumes with me to the other places on that side of town with my nice interview look. I really want a job by this week I'm getting low on my savings while barely eating each day. I need a damn job at the bare minimum to cover rent.
