    horrible informational interview

    Sounds like you just met with the wrong guy. I had an informational interview last week with a guy who basically told me the exact opposite. Based solely on the education and experience on my resume he wants to hire me down the road if and when he has more deals that pencil. My advice for...

    Agnostics and Atheists - do you ever pray?

    I've said some pretty horrific **** in my life, but I certainly do not pray. That is a line I just won't cross.

    horrible informational interview

    Yep. If it was fun, interesting or fulfilling it would have some other name. I really don't see how either comment is applicable.

    horrible informational interview

    He has a point; 5 Men start with degrees, in 5 years time they all have 5 years experience and education. Who gets the job? What sets you apart are you skills and personality. Go after industry awards, write articles for your industry magazines (As long as you're not utterly marsupialed most...

    horrible informational interview

    It is rather depressing to think about.

    horrible informational interview

    I had a talk with someone in my industry. Basically trying to find a position that is a better fit for me. I was told that I need to get it out of my head that my experience and education and accomplishments are of value. I will be stuck hating life for as long as it takes for the more senior...

    Dilemma: Busted Stove in the Apt, what to do?

    Last time I had a gas leak, I found it Sunday morning and the apt owner had it fixed Sunday afternoon. Usually they give a damn about their property not going boom.

    Ouch. Dirt Bike Mishap Results In...

    I guarantee that's the last time he rides with is face mask open. That's what it's for you dumbass! There is no open/closed on a full face helmet. It is pretty easy for **** to go past the goggles or up under the jaw guard.

    Cheap Hobbies?

    Cooking is a great one like others have mentioned. You can try new things quite regularly. Basic things, like bread, are very cheap to make and as a result you can make it frequently and get a lot of practice very quickly. As you get better, you can take your "errors" (e.g. loaves that were less...

    tool box quality

    A square and lots of shopping around led me to a decent metal mechanics chest for now. LOTS of shopping around. I've determined that the display models in most every store are the chests that must have been half on the pallet or fell off the loading dock or got hit with a forklift (maybe all...

    What Skills Give You an Edge in the Workplace?

    For a math geek, I write exceptionally well. I've drafted letters, proposals, reports, etc for management several levels above me. They request it. I'm also good at getting big diverse teams together to make big **** happen. Those are probably the two key skills that pay the bills. Everything...

    Can having a bachelor's degree work against your career mobility?

    I would say the undergrad major can and will work against you moreso than having vs not having a bachelors degree.

    Have you ever paid for a term paper?

    To be honest, that only works in certain ZIP Codes. How do I know you aren't lying? Although, Chicago seems to operate off of lying, cheating and stealing. So maybe you are right.

    Have you ever paid for a term paper?

    A few years ago, I remember reading an article about all the mental performance enhancing drugs people are taking to succeed. I guess it really just starts with Adderall and Ritalin. I was really unaware of how big of a demand there is for these drugs and how readily they seem to be prescribed...

    was it worth it?

    If you slack off in school you slack off in life. There's no difference. The whole "book" smart vs. "street" smart thing is a sop to wimps. Anyway...of course school was worth it unless you enjoy being an ignoramus. I certainly didn't need school to stop me from being an ignoramus. One doesn't...

    tool box quality

    I'm probably sadly mistaken, but I think folks are less likely to slam or let slam a drawer on a wooden tool chest than on a metal tool chest. I think I probably have too much faith in society/humanity though.

    is it possible to change industries?

    Why even have the MBA? Good question. MBAs became a very useless degree during the recession. Definitely not worth what I paid for it.

    Are you phd, master or undergard? bs, mba

    is it possible to change industries?

    This still sounds quite negative and does not make you an attractive candidate. If you want to pitch yourself for a different job, you need to articulate (a) that you've had a good experience where you are now, acquired a number of useful skills (relevant to this new job) and that you're ready...

    is it possible to change industries?

    I'm not negative, I'm disgruntled and bitter.
