trade school?

well if you didn't post it in such a ****** resolution then maybe people could actually read the text which is supposed to be the major part of the joke, and not the pictures... FFS OP, you can't even repost properly

I recently had two jobs.
I quit the second job on Saturday. Their reaction? To fire me.
Yes, they fired me for quitting.

Back to one job now. Juggling 2 jobs, high school, dual enrollment with a community college, and a girlfriend is extremely hard.
User avatar #77 to #73 - vatra (02/27/2013) [-]
That's not legal, if you submit your resignation in writing, they legally cannot fire you before processing it.
User avatar #83 to #77 - Nameloc (02/27/2013) [-]
It was like breaking up with a girlfriend, and then they make it look like they broke up with you.
Pretty much the scenario, rather than breaking up it was quitting. And rather than girlfriend it was a job.

Look at #80 for how it went down.

Apparently afterwards she ran into the back and tore up the schedule because she was so mad.

I did quit, no doubt. They won't be able to say they fired me. Although she tried to blow it off, at the time, that she was firing me.
User avatar #85 to #83 - vatra (02/27/2013) [-]
Well... **** ...

Don't let them actually fire you. Quitting looks better on a resume than being fired.
User avatar #80 to #75 - Nameloc (02/27/2013) [-]
I quit, then they tried to make it look liked they fired me.
Me: "I won't be able to work here after today.."
Pissed off PMSing manager: 'Yeah well, just don't come back. Don't even clock in today'
She said that as she was about to cry. (Sounded like it.)

They had to have the last laugh. Oh well. Like I give a **** .

Jobs are really ******* easy to get.
An 18 y/o friend of mine with no high school education got a job last week, just by asking for it.
murrka has high unemployment because people don't want jobs.
#56 to #54 - anonymous (02/27/2013) [-]
Jobs are easy to get. It's getting a job that you actually want that's the hard part.
#57 to #56 - fornicatio (02/27/2013) [-]
"what you want" is a load of nebulous ******** .
What do you want?
To be a writer? nobody wants to read
To be an actor? are you jewish - no -> are you good at it - no.
To do anything easy or fun or rewarding? not enough positions.

Harden the **** up and enjoy what you get. In the end, that's all you got.
User avatar #62 to #57 - kookiefrankus (02/27/2013) [-]
I'd be happy cleaning up fresh **** off the floor with my bare hands every day for a 14 hour shift, 7 days a week but nobody hires older people with no experience
#61 to #57 - anonymous (02/27/2013) [-]
you are quite stupid arent you?
#59 to #57 - anonymous (02/27/2013) [-]
Because everyone wants to go through life in a dead end job they don't enjoy....oh wait...
#63 to #59 - fornicatio (02/27/2013) [-]
its only dead end if you're too much of a dickeater to advance.
btw do not refer to jobs paying less than 15 USD/hr as jobs.
when i say jobs are easy to get, i mean careers.
User avatar #53 - lordmoldywart (02/27/2013) [-]
There's no excuse for not having a job. Study harder in school and you'll be fine

This of course excludes those that are mentally challenged
User avatar #64 to #53 - kookiefrankus (02/27/2013) [-]
or people that got assignments that nobody in the class could complete which made it so you fail highschool. Business studies did this to my school.
User avatar #90 to #64 - lordmoldywart (02/27/2013) [-]
Or you could study harder
User avatar #94 to #90 - kookiefrankus (02/28/2013) [-]
Or i could get asked to do an assignment which has you interview any business and ask them confidential info that they didn't and wont give out.
User avatar #95 to #94 - lordmoldywart (02/28/2013) [-]
No one would give you an assignment that was impossible to complete

How confidential was the info?
User avatar #96 to #95 - kookiefrankus (03/01/2013) [-]
Something to do with financial data or some crap... I dunno it was around 6 years ago.
Lemme guess, red thumbs for commenting at all?
User avatar #97 to #96 - lordmoldywart (03/01/2013) [-]
Financial data can be found on the internet you don't even need to ask the company directly
User avatar #52 - chiktikkavaspaus (02/27/2013) [-]
Yep, that's me. Life be a cruel, black hearted mistress.

You get mad after two months???
User avatar #45 - ninjasquirle (02/27/2013) [-]
I live in area where half the 40 and up population still works minimum wage... trying to find work as a college student if hard as hell competing for cashier at a ****** gas station when the other guy has 20 something years working minimum wage, how am I supposed to be able to compete?
#44 - anonymous (02/27/2013) [-]
Volunteering has been mentioned, and it's certainly a good stepping stone. However, your chances of receiving proper employment afterward can still be rather slim, due to the fact that the few weeks'/months' experience you gain will still pale next to someone with several years' worth of experience. Of course, it all depends where you live - some places have it worse than others. There will be several thousand more people singing up for benefits here in the UK, now that certain High Street chains have made cuts.

I suppose what you need to do is keep an eye on the jobs market, apply for what you can, tailor your covering letter and CV carefully, and during your free time, consider volunteering, pursuing a new hobby (a relatively rewarding one), or consider going back to college/university. Don't feel bad about not finding work. Just don't allow yourself to get lazy.

Meh. I was a live in house bitch for a while. When I started looking for a real job, I got it right out of the gate.

Wow, that has been the last half year for me.
#36 - comradewinter ONLINE (02/26/2013) [-]
This is why it's important to check what will be available before you choose what to study. We can't get enough lawyers in my country, so that's something to aim for. There's a shortage of doctors just about worldwide. Elevator installers make more than people think.

Taking general studies like economics or biology puts you in the same position as just about anyone who finished college. Specialize in a field and you're golden. Mostly.
User avatar #46 to #36 - ninjasquirle (02/27/2013) [-]
Actually the Lawyer game isn't as hot as it was years ago, problem today alot of people aim for pre law, and now its seen in how many people need know someone to get a foot into a firm. While I choose environmental science partially on the fact early on I learned environmental science is more about soil science and ecology than anything and mainly I can take that into toxic waste clean up or ecotoxicology which is toxicology focused on drugs found in plants... Today 75% of all pharmaceuticals come from chemicals found in plants from the Rainforest. Get past global warming and it becomes mostly how things in the environment actually fit their and what they do.
#88 to #46 - comradewinter ONLINE (02/27/2013) [-]
It varies from country to country. Law is maybe not the best alternative as laws also tend to differ internationally, but should something like environmental science become extremely popular, leading to massive competition, you could always try your luck abroad.

It is soon, just look what is happening, WHO found the Beijing air quality was as bad as smoking half a pack a day. People in India actually believe that asbestos isn't harmful (those metal thatched roofs you see in slums are actually sheets of asbestos.) Point is, its easy to **** up the planet and now that we starting to see the actually side effects changing how we live is whats going to make the field more interesting.
#92 to #91 - comradewinter ONLINE (02/27/2013) [-]
Of course. Whoever finds the solution to pollution (yeah, that rhymed like a bitch) would be the most decorated scientist of our time as well as getting rich as **** .
User avatar #93 to #92 - ninjasquirle (02/27/2013) [-]
The beautiful thing about that (for my job security that is) is that you need basically a cleanup for each individual pollutant (Sulfur dioxide, Methane, Oil, salts, PCB's), they all have their own chemical differences that means you have to go through and clean the pollutants basically one at time since each method will most likely be specific to a single pollutant only. Ironically however what people should really be concerned about is ocean acidification where excess CO2 in the atmosphere is buffered by the ocean by forming carbonic acid thus over time slightly lowering the pH of the oceans. Just so happens marine organisms have almost no tolerance for significant pH change meaning that if things continue then I wouldn't want to be in the fishing industry.
