leverage you out, end your pension and then tell you you are a lazy loser when you can't support yourself because your to old to work competitively

you will get no compassion from me



Good luck with that sport. I've reinvented myself 4 times over my career to stay ahead of the curve, and I am still surfing the current wave while watching for the next one. Getting prepared and positioning myself for when it arrives.

But I guess your immature little mind cannot conceive of anything as far as your next txt message arriving to understand.

The opportunities are there, I see them everyday go unfilled until a foreign H1-B visa candidate gets it. I am called in to be in interviews and continually see the same attitude from that generation. Unable to think out-of-the-box, cannot see ahead of their own nose, even having a few actually answer txt messages in an interview with me.

That is unacceptable, and rude. Unless it is a case of medical emergency of family. Not to chat with a friend or answer a txt from another job offer....not while you are interviewing with someone.

Actually, it's that people want long term careers with individual companies. They don't want to be job hoppers. If you accept a temporary job at a McDonalds, what are you supposed to do? There's very limited opportunity for advancement there, alongside no financial security. If they're not willing to offer those things, why should you work for them?

See, your generation was sold a bill of goods by the socialist experiment driven through the school system. In the real world, there is always a winner, and there is always a loser. Everyone is NOT special. And to achieve success requires work and determination. Making a profit and earning money to live a better life is not evil. And depending too much on big daddy government is dangerous and puts you into a perpetual state of need.


The loser in the exchange should still have a reasonable quality of living.


Says who?
But no, you EXPECT it to be of high quality. As I said earlier, you were sold into a lie. Life is what you make of it, not what someone "gives" to you.

This is a lesson your parents and educators should have taught you earlier.

Poorer or not poorer is not the real problem, it's a lack of progress that's the real problem. With all the technological advancements and massive population, the very idea that we are working 40+ hours or more for next to nothing is just plain ludicrous. It's not a matter of people not wanting to work as hard as their ancestors, it's the knowledge that such should be unnecessary as we should have progressed beyond that by now. That we still are expected to slave the way we do for so little gain is ludicrous, and deep down most of us realize this, and that boils up in resentment towards the system that fails to evolve, and tries to force people to live in conditions beneath what we should have progressed to by now.

The living standard we the world are forced into is artificial and way beneath where we should be by now in terms of the technological progress we have made.

Society is meant to improve, to get better to progress. We're failing to do that adequately by any standard of measurement.

Why? Because you get job experience. You get experience working and being on time. You demonstrate to the next or "dream employer" that you can hold down a steady job and are reliable. If the interviewer asks about the job hops, you explain it to them that you were trying to be self sufficient and not rely upon others, and to use the time to expand your knowledge of that particular area that this new job will require. You demonstrate that you researched them too, and found them to match your own skillset and desires.

Non applicable experience is not experience. In fact, it's not even something that should be listed on your resume.

Just wait until you become unemployable or cost to much, I've seen it happen, it's going to happen to you

many of your generation are going to be leveraged out, I know every chance I get I'm going to do so, and I will continue to work to end your pension's because it was a scam to begin with

also, your going to pay for this perspective by losing your assets in the next bubble when the central banks stop proping up the market

you will lose your investments in real estate as well because we are not buying houses

we will have time to recover and you won't

you are screwing yourself, good luck

Now I must ask for references on this statistic. Do you really thin working on a farm was less work than what we must do as a 40+ hr week, with weekends off?
Do you think building out the west was a 9-5 job, with weekends off?

Seriously?

they live in a world that exist in the 50-60-70-80 and 90's not in todays real world starting from the bottom, debating total ignorance, willful chosen ignorance and someone who offers little to no data to back their presumptions and someone who refuses to accept the current data as real

Go for it skippy.

I don;t see you having the skill to make that threat a reality. It's all electronic bits flowing through the system....a system, BTW, I helped design and build. And currently keep running so you can rant here online.

Becoming obsolete is something that happens to those that do not (pr refuse to) evolve into the next wave. That is not me....never has, and never will.

We are also the ones doing the interviewing and hiring. If you want to exceptionalize yourself out of a job, and force us to hire an H1-B visa candidate that has not attitude and expectations of being special. Then you do that. But don't wonder why when you find yourself at 30 or 40 and have nothing to show for your waste of life.

It's fine, you said you reinvented yourself, which means you're not even in that field anymore.

Really, so to you there is only one dimension to that area?
See, lack of vision, lack of understanding of the scope of the electronic world you take for granted, all demonstrated right there.

This is the typical really bad attitude that us younger people receive which is why I have been vocally advocating that we take revenge against your age group collectively by leveraging you out of your assets and financial future as has been done to us

good luck

No. I think you consider learning new aspects to an existing field to be something extra and are embellishing a bit, when the reality (especially with anything tech related) is that you be a perpetual student and add to your wheelhouse over time. That's not something special, that's literally the absolute bare minimum for the field.


Reinventing yourself means completely changing fields/subject matter. Going from being a digital artist to being a physics professor is reinventing yourself. Picking up a new programming language, piece of hardware, etc is not.

So far in my experience in the technology field you need to literally have a passion and drive and be focused on getting better and more creative to even make minimal progress in what seems to be one of the very few lucrative fields for us

Are you suggesting that you worked with Tim Lee? Cause I'd call BS.

Which systems did you help design and build that facilitates communication from that poster's client and ATS servers?

I'm dying to hear this.

Please.

HTTP?

RDMS?

APACHE?

PHP?
