  • I maybe wrong here but unless you can relocate I don’t think you’ll find anything good. Try for big companies like IBM you will work remotely but travel a lot

      I'm working on talking with my wife to try and figure out something that lets me relocate temporarily. She doesn't mind if I travel a lot, but we have to make enough money so she doesn't have to work in both scenarios since I take care of our daughter currently while she works.

      My wife's step father just got a remote job working as a "senior storage engineer" for S******* out of Seattle, and gets paid 75 a fucking hour to make sure there no alarm codes on AWS Cloud DBs and set up new AWS Elastic Storage blocks when needed. Insane cash for such an easy job, and he just answers emails most days. Wish I had it so easy.

    • No need to worry your time will come. Just don’t give up and go join a fast food joint.

    Try program or project management? See if you can start by getting a contract position? (Some companies that come to mind -Randstad, Robert Half, Addecco, etc)

    I’d say get a career coach? HireClub has a ton and people have been successful. I haven’t done it, but I see posts on FB group. Join groups on FB - HireClub, Albert’s Job Listing, Subtle Asian Tech and so on. You can post there, and ask for help too. Or see the job postings and contact people.

    Good luck! It’ll work out.

      Not gonna lie, homie, that kind of attitude might be part of the reason you're failing. Sure, someone out there is scamming you but you can do due diligence and see what services are worth using. It's $120 bucks for someone's time that knows what they're doing and you don't think that's worth it when you're applying for Walmart/Fedex etc, failing and wasting all of this time? Invest in yourself. It compounds.

      My 3 degrees and no job proves that's not true.

    Are you re-working your resume for each thing you apply to so that your resume is catered to that role? I'll let others weigh in but I think an MBA in management for a tech/IT-related/Walmart manager role MIGHT be over-qualified. Although it does look like you're getting interviews for the tech related ones. How does the interview go? If you are getting interviews for all the tech ones but bombing at that point maybe something is wrong with the way you're representing your skillset or presenting yourself. It may be worth doing some mock interviews from someone you know or even paying and getting some candid feedback from someone who won't be sued for giving you advice.
