What do you guys do for a living? Does your job make it hard for you to stay fit? Also is there any part of your job that makes you wish you picked something else as a career?
>>
self-employed biz owner, work my own hours. i don't make much after taxes (because I live in Yuropoor) and don't pay myself a huge salary but i have a shitload of time and can't really complain desu.

high school dropout as well.
>>
>>47954573
This. I taught myself basic web development and now I have a handful of websites/apps that generate me an average of roughly $130 a day. Lots of free time. But i am trying to increase my earnings, and have hope to do so in the near future. Also, a hs dropout.
>>
>>47954510
I'm also wondering this. Seems like /fit/ mostly consists of either college students pursuing boring, bland careers like engineering/IT or guys currently in those jobs. More power to you if you actually enjoy that stuff but it sounds boring as hell and I'm worried about what I'm going to do since nothing about those kinds of jobs appeals to me.

>>
CS degree, working in IT.

>Does your job make it hard for you to stay fit?

No, because I just work 8 hours/day how it's supposed to be. Plenty of time to work out in the week.

>Also is there any part of your job that makes you wish you picked something else as a career?

Sometimes the co-workers and the mentality of them. Not all of them of course but for various I can't connect to most of them very much. Especially this pseudo-elitism they breathe.

>>47954690

Don't know how that's bland. Not taking it too personally but there are so many sub-fields in these two areas that you would be suprised how exciting they can be.

>there are so many sub-fields in these two areas that you would be suprised how exciting they can be.

I guess that's true. I just tend to look at those fields as jobs for boring beta provider nerd dads. The only engineering jobs I'd actually be impressed by would be like designing roller coasters or working as a Disney Imagineer or something.

Tech inside sales. make a shit ton of money but feel like OP pic and drink every night when I get home. Married with 2 kids at 28 and on path to retire around 40 pretty comfortably but fuck do I feel dead inside most days.

Serious for you unemployed folks, just go into sales. Most say they want a bachelors but that's complete bs unless you're doing something like pharma or lockheed martin. Tech sales, and especially inside, is easy as fuck to get into and can offer great money for the skill investment

Freelance videographer. It's feast or famine, I'll have two weeks of no work and then 4 12 hour days in a row (I work at a suicide pace).

Took years to get here, I don't make a lot of money, and I enjoy out thoroughly. Not having a boss, not having a commute, sounds like freedom to me.

I work 6 days a week at 2 different bars. Its fucking brutal and working out/being healthy has become hard because I'm drinking a lot on the job and eating the greasy high carb food at the place. My bosses don't care because I only drink if the customers pay for it, also I can handle my booze. Been thinking about going back to school, but not sure for what. I'm 25 now and I just want to escape this hellish life.

I'm a physicist working with medical devices.
We have a mediocre "wellness center" onsite, but it's got a barbell and plates so it works for me. I do full body weight training 4 days a week, Tues, Thurs, Sat + Sun.
During the week I'll go around 9 am and call that my lunch break since I normally don't take one. I'm good at what I do so it's not really an issue to take 1:30-1:45 twice a week to work out.

Don't tell me you study more than 40-50 hrs/week? Because well, nobody does (atleast efficiently)

Rancher and no I'm always throwing hay bales and bags of feed around or messing with the cows/horses. No I wouldn't trade it for anything it's a nice peaceful life. I don't have to worry about idiots/shooters/psychos. I sometimes do feel like I am missing out on my youth not going clubbing or things like that but I think it's overrated most of the time. I go to concerts, bars, fairs and carnivals anyways so I don't think I miss much. I use dating apps to meet girls there's a bunch of little towns all within 50-100 miles of each other and 3 mayor cities the furthest being 3 hours away.

Do you really think a class schedules ups your week to 60 hrs University time (class schedule + studying)?

Because I never met anyone who had such a busy week that he/she could NOT fit 3x 1.5 hr workout in the week.

But anyway, it's all about priorities. But many try to excuse it.

unemployed currently. for 4 years I had an internship and later a middle management job at a logistics company, even had a company car. boss was a pain in the ass so i quit. was supposed to find what I love but for 3 months I haven't really. Got my health back tho and started lifting again now that I became better-rested. Money is starting to run out so I can either go back to the company for a couple of months to make some money or dunno what else desu.

id like to open a clothing store one day but need money atm

I believe that a med student is busy. But so are most degrees which are not Gender Studies. Especially if you don't work part-time besides studying to support yourself. If you are not working as a University student, you still have time to fit in 2-3 workouts in the week.

If you really think "you are too busy" than make that happen, it's just an excuse or your priorities are in a different order (party/freetime/lurking/movies... > work out).

Never met in 6 years University anyone who was so busy that he had no freetime at all.

You need to study often.

How much depends on the student and also how attentive you are in class and with the readings. Work hard in class and do the many pre-class readings, less study needed. Do neither or just one, much study needed and sometimes to limited avail.

Unemployed
I was working 60 hour weeks making $10/hr building forklifts on a temp contract
They had a system called effectivity which measured how much work you did through the computers and they wanted everyone to do 70% which meant 430 minutes worth of work out of a 600 minute shift
I busted ass doing two stations and helped another guy with a third station and I was getting around 130-140% effectivity which was 900 minutes worth in 600 minutes
I was at station that was easy to mess up and I got it down to about 1 non conformance a week which was unheard of
Showed up 15 minutes early every day, got along with everyone, the plant manager and I were on a first name basis, I won the closest to the pin contest and had supervisors shaking my hand
The list goes on and they still hesitated when thinking about hiring me for $23 an hour with decent benefits so I got pissed and left
I thought I'd take that experience somewhere else and get a better job easily but it's cheaper for these companies to hire niggers through temp agencies and turn them over for $10 an hour with no benefits
Just signed up for an associate's in business, starting class next Wednesday as a boomer, no idea what I'm getting myself into

Union Electrician. Easily the worst decision of my life. Between "optional" mandatory overtime, starts that differ +-3 hours day to day, and lack of time off; lifting is a luxury.

Before this I just delivered food to go towards tuition. By no means /fit/ but I had just broken past 1/2/3/4 and dipped under 20% bf so I could at least justify self-esteem. Been experimenting with different diet/exercise regimen but have been unable to get recovery under a week being unable to manage a sleeping schedule.

Considering moving back home while I try to find a new career but options are limited. Even if I dropped 80lb to my pre-trade weight I'm unlikely to pass a physical. My back may improve but the arthritis in one shoulder won't. Not sure what four years of sleep deprivation does to the brain exactly but not so good at college-level math anymore.

On the upside it will teach you humility. About nine months in, I took a second unpaid sick day, when I returned I was reminded of my lot in life with a write-up. I remember one occasion where the pain was so bad I shat myself and still had two more hours in my shift.

Anyone know any laid-back jobs that are easy to break into? Sometimes I see security guards that read all day, sounds nice.

I assume you're doing construction electrician work. You can easily change to a comfy industrial electrician (lots of factories will hire construction electricians and train you to be industrial) and you basically lay back until something breaks on one of the machines. Anecdotally, I know a guy who works in the local Toyota plant and pulls $60 an hour with actual optional overtime and he mostly does exactly what I spelled out - sits around and waits for shit to break electrically. If you have any PLC experience whatsoever you could become a PLC programmer/industrial electrician and make even more. He wants to be an author and has since written like 10k pages since April.

Likewise, you can join the local utilities and work a comfy 7-3 job working inside substations doing panel wiring.

I work in engineering for a major automotive company and the union skilled trades guys at my location literally cannot be mandated overtime and also have a rolling schedule to 40 a week, 10 hours overtime without sign off. So they come and go as they please. Some of them work like almost 0 in the week and come in for nearly the entire weekend and end up in overtime while they're sleeping because production is down. My advise would be to find your way into an in-house union and make use of having a journeyman license. Assuming you're US, that is. On mobile so cannot see where you're posting from. Godspeed anon

High school dropout, but spent my time with learning useful skills. Then became a software developer for 10 years, ruined my fucking posture, extremely stressful and long hours.

Auto mechanic.

Pretty easy to stay fit as long as there's a nice balance of work (not too much to be too busy to go, not so little that I cant afford to go.) Its pretty physical work sometimes so that alone, coupled with my good genetics, is enough to keep a base level of fitness.

The only downside is my hands. They're always getting fucked up and heading into my 10th year, the pain isn't fading as fast as it used to. It doesn't help that I also do boxing and BJJ, both shit on your hands, but overall I'm happy enough.

Yeah, I heard factory gigs are sweet. No way in this local to apply for your own job as far as I know, book only. Supposedly, it's very difficult to actually transfer locals unless you are only signing the traveling book, which is at a disadvantage.

I figure my best bet if I wanted to get a job like that would be non-union in another county. The risk is, after we were already in about a year, they dropped a contract on us; get caught non-union, we sue you $30k for the time and resources used to train you. If we didn't sign, lose your job immediately.

Construction materials technician. I sit around on a construction site making sure that the crews don't do a shitty job. My specialty is in earthworks like foundations and roadways. I spend lots of time doing nothing, which is both a blessing and a curse. I work around 60 hours a week, but I have timed it and found that I only spend 20 hours a week actually working. I have to carry around about 50 pounds of equipment for short distances and get a lot of work swinging a pickaxe and turning a hand auger. Being forced to stay on the job site for $13/hr sucks, especially when you still live with your parents and dont need the money. I would have quit, but I am getting experience towards a professional geologist license. And once I am licensed, I have connections to get an easy government job. Then I will only make $35k/yr, but also only work roughly 20hrs/week, which is a pretty sweet deal for me. Most of the guys at the department I interned at brought in six figures by investing their salaries in stocks and starting side businesses. Also plenty of time for lifting.

Nope. I have a perfect work-life balance. I work a straight 40 hours a week from 1:30-9:30 pm. I wake up at 8 and read for an hour, write for an hour or two, and work out for 40-90 minutes. Shower, eat lunch, hang, go to work, go home, eat dinner, talk to the gf, and fuck around on 4chan or read till bed time.

>Also is there any part of your job that makes you wish you picked something else as a career?

I love teaching and I love working with kids. I've always excelled in English courses and on standardized reading tests (780/800 on the verbal SAT, 172 on the LSAT). I've published essays and short stories and I've turned down admittance+generous scholarships at top law schools to stay here and teach. The only down side is I'll have to leave in a year or two and do something else (half of my family is in education state-side so I know what a shit show that is).

Straight out of college I started drawing furry porn commissions full time instead of looking for a job with my stem degree and four years later I'm still at it just barely brushing up against 6 figures. This year I paid off 50k in student loans and bought a condo in the city, right next to a good gym too so thats nice. I feel like no one else is doing what I'm doing to the degree that I'm doing it so it can feel a little surreal. But provided I can keep the same heavy demand going for years to come I'm in a pretty good place. I just work out in the mornings and then work almost all day on painting dogs fucking each other or whatever then go to bed. The part of my job I don't like is dealing with the insane autists who have an aneurysm if you draw 18 stripes on their neon green tiger instead of 17.

Reading books about internet marketing is idiotic because it's a constantly changing field (weekly Google algorithm updates, ad campaign results vary from industry to industry etc.) You also have to decide what you want to go for. PPC, SEO, social media marketing... it's all free to learn, SEO & PPC being the most high paying (80-150K/year depending on where you live) However, general marketing books apply. How To Win Friends & Influence People, Ca$hvertising, Think And Grow Rich and The Ultimate Salesletter are books that helped me.

This is what is keeping me from sustaining a decent job. Most companies ive applied to only get workers through temp agencies and they dont give a shit about you. The only workers who get hired are kiss asses who are conniving manipulators. Its usually mind numbing and physical labor which in turn makes being fit incredibly difficult

as far as during the sale? yes its absolutely fake. For example in SaaS sales you're just on the phone and on screenshares with people. Body language means nothing in that kind of environment so it's all about learning to guide or manipulate peoples emotions using tones/inflections/pauses in your speaking. You can be having a terrible day but you still need to sound perfect on the phone if you want to close any deals

Fell for the STEM meme. I’m ferociously antisocial and a loner, getting a job was like running the gauntlet.

Currently wageslaving as a senior consultant engineer at one of the Big Four, aka your regular corporate schmuck.

Some days it’s meh, other days it’s fucking abysmal and want to end myself. I really hate anything that is routine and even consulting has started to become thus.

Currently considering NEETdom as soon as my measly financial investments let me go into full monk mode, which is about a year or two but fucking hell I don’t know if I’m going to make it.

Pursuing /fit/ness so I can feel a bit better I guess but it’s draining like 50% of my free time so it’s actually depressing but I can’t stop lifting otherwise I feel bad how do I get out of this help
>>
>>47957777
Yeah I know that feel, Anon. Working at a restaurant has helped me with my people skills. I can now make small talk and look people in the eyes w/o feeling weird. But at the same time, I've also started to hate people sooo much. Whenever I get a shitty customer, I just start having murderous thoughts and it just ends up getting darker and darker as the time goes on. I know I won't do anything, but I know this isn't normal. This job is fucking killing me on the inside. Also since I work the bar on some nights, I've also started to become an alcoholic.

>Does your job make it hard for you to stay fit?
Yes and no - when I dont have to travel it's easy as because as long as my team hits targets the boss doesnt care what we do. But when I travel it's shit, diet goes out the window on client meetings/hotel food and many hotels have fucking shite gyms

>Also is there any part of your job that makes you wish you picked something else as a career?
There's literally not a single part of my job that I enjoy apart from the money and the guys and girls in my team. The money is fantastic, but the work is shit, high pressure, you work 7 days a week and you're always on call even when you take a holiday

Medical resident. Pay sucks, hours are crazy long and the people are stressful or just plain depressing. Working 90hrs a week with people dying on me or dealing with junkies is hard to lift but I wouldn’t do anything else. I feel like a badass, get solve complex problems, be a part of some amazing peoples lives, and flirt with nurses all day. I make enough now to have a nice home gym out back under the mountains and when I’m done I’ll pulling down good money too, but most of all i just love being a doctor. You know that part in lethal weapon where Mel Gibson talked about how the the only thing that gets him up in the morning is the job? That’s me.

Was planning on becoming an architect, went to a technical school for 2 years and got certified in a few Engineering/Architecture softwares and was interning at an Architecture firm, few months later I decide to try LSD for the first time in my life because during High School I was a loser who didn't do anything and just wanted to alienate myself from everyone, blacked out, my friends ditched me, one of them knocked me out, jumped in like 3 lakes, cops showed up and pulled me out by grabbing my hair and I ended up hitting the cop because I went on defensive mode, currently serving probation and got 2 felonies. I want to kill myself every day. I play soccer and go to the gym but sadly I'm a 5' 10" manlet and I'm only 160 pounds because of all the cardio I do.

I work night shift as a police officer in a major US city. Does it make it hard to stay fit? Yes and no. Obviously the schedule isn’t ideal. I literally had three forced overtime shifts in a row last week, which really isn’t that unusual considering my department’s current staffing situation. On track to make about 90k in my first full year so no regrets. Most of the guys I work with put forth at least a reasonable effort to stay /fit/ and the job itself is good extrinsic motivation, plus we have gyms in most stations we can use. We’re not allowed time to work out on duty, like some departments, but it’s not really a bad deal.

I’m in middle management in the Canadian civil service in benefits delivery.
I work 8-4, M-F and earn a reasonable salary for a pretty easy job.
I spend most of my day riding a desk or in meetings though.
I used to work in land management and development, which was better money but a lot more work and responsibility, and it made it hard for me to do a lot outside of work and staying in shape. If I had my time back I’d trade my finance degree for an engineering degree, but my personal finances are great at this point, so I’m considering establishing a tertiary income stream (already have a decent secondary income) and “retiring” from my wagie life.

The earnings are fucked. I have studied 5 years to earn little more than a burger flipper. The problem is Brazil is a shithole and the only way of being rich easily here is either to be a politician or a big businessman that makes deals eith the government (small business are crushed under bureouceacy and regulations).

Things are in danger of getting worse (election fraud might put a socialist as president and his government proposal (not sure if this is the right way of saying it) is ODDLY SIMILAR to Venezuela's president Maduro.

Luckly I believe in a couple of years I'll make enough fame within the scientific comunity to manage to get some research position in a foreign country, thus leaving this shithole for good. If Brazilian Maduro DOESN'T get elected I might as well stay since I have family and friends here.

Dunno where. T15 for sure.

I havent done much research but I feel like patent lawyer is a good field to pursue since 90% of the saturated law students don't have STEM degrees. That's probably doubly true for comp sci, and I'm sure there will be tons of work for a comp sci patents

But if you're considering law school, you have to remember the ONLY things that matter for admissions are GPA and LSAT. And no, they don't care your major is harder. a gender studies 3.5 = a STEM 3.5

idk how true this >>47961933 is. There are plenty of very noteworthy schools outside of T10 like Cornell or Georgetown. But also, it's pretty reasonable to get into T10 schools - easier than getting in for undergrad it seems, since extracurriculurs dont matter much

I think some 25th percentile GPAs for T10 are like 3.6, 3.7. I have a 3.3 rn because I fucked up, but I've calculated it and I can get it up to a 3.75 if I get all As

Merchant Ship deck officer.
Unsociable work, away from home for months on end. Get to see the rest of the world and realise its a shithole.

Being out in deep sea is incredibly satisfying though. Most big ships have gyms so there are no distractions. You work, you gym, you socialise with crew mates. Very little sleep though and even as an officer you might end up doing dangerous labour intensive jobs. Satisfying work imo.

Canada, teachers in every province make around the 75th income percentile. You need a degree plus usually a one year teaching diploma to teach secondary. If you teach science or math and French you will have an easier time getting a job, then you have a fairly easy job with decent pay and opportunities to make more if you choose to go into admin. Plus you get the holy grail teacher’s holidays.

I sell personal training packages, so I really and truly believe that the people I meet every day need the help I can give them. The average person shows up to the gym, does a quick circuit of the machines, and hits the treadmill because they have no idea how to gain muscle or lose fat. They stop after two months until they get inspired again and never make any progress.

There's a reason /fit/izens never get hit up for personal training. We're not the target market.

I work front desk reception at a very upscale gym in a boujie neighborhood. I'm a gym NPC.

I do 1hr+ lifting routines 3x a week and cardio 3x a week, so I'm basically here 7 days a week including my days off. And everyone here knows me, so when I workout the staff and the members talk to me in the lobby on the way in and out. It's actually kinda nice.

It really depends but the thing that PA has over nurse is that they don't have to specialize while NP does. For example a PA can go from surgery to othro to cardiac while an NP will have to specialize in one of those things. The only problem is that a lot PA schools will question why a Nurse would choose PA over NP but if you explain to them that you prefer the Medical model that PAs go through rather than the Nursing model that NPs go through they are usually cool about it.

It is easier however for a Nurse to become a NP but imo PAs are better because they are able to work in any area they want

Ughhh mate I literally got to Brasil and taught English/Spanish free-lance by the 1stweek. By the 1st month I was making $40 a hour working for wealthy brazilians. I was making between $3000-$5000 a month depending on how many hours I worked. Hell sometimes I brought home $6500. Which afforded me a lifestyle that was upper-middle class by American standards. I lived in studio apartment in a high class area (with private security aka ex-cops and military that wouldn't let favela rats enter), a maid clean twice a week, a chef 3 times a week, private parking, private gym, best seats at bars/clubs/stadiums/theaters, it was heaven. Granted electronics and the civil service suck but if you got money it's not a problem. If you are a native english speaker with a British or American accent people will pay to just converse with you so you can correct them. I'm not even lying I had this brazilian millionaire who would pay me to hang out with him on fridays and just walk around conversing.

Seriously if you are native english speaker and white life is easy mode in Brasil. Women will throw themselves at you and guys will want to be your friends. Add in being /fit/ and you mog %95 of native brazilians in their country. Here in America I've never had 9-10/10s throwing themselves at me yet in Brasil it was a weekly occurrence.

You guys are coping super fucking hard if you can't believe there are 26 year olds making $350k on /fit/, especially in finance. $350k isn't even in the 1%. Let's say 3% of American make $350k or more, that's about 9 million americans. It's not a stretch that 1% of those $350k earners are in their 20's, so 90 thousand people. Especially considering that fitness is a hobby that very popular among (1) men in their 20's, (2) wealthy people, and (3) conservative-leaning people like 4chan users, the fact that you refuse to believe a 26 year old on /fit/ could make $350k is a massive moneylet cope.

Seniorcare administration. I really like it because you meet a lot of interesting people who did really cool shit with their lives. I walk around a lot and am one of the only men in the building so have to do a lot of heavy lifting when it's time. One of my good senior friends right now is an old Englishman named Alfred, he's kind of out of it sometimes and is near deaf but doesn't want to get a hearing aid and uses these janky 90's big headphones with a voice box you have to shout into. He fought in North Africa during the second world war and has told me some neat stories.

The other, more /fit/ related side of it is that it shows me how easy it is to fuck up and otherwise waste your life. So many old, childless fucks who did very little with their lives and have nothing to show for it, and have absolutely ravaged their bodies. 65 year olds looking 100. Average resident assessments usually look like -
>college - no
>marital status - divorced/single
>language - just English (you can always catch the most regret in their faces on this one)
>favorite activities - watching television
Shit makes me want to be better and avoid ending up like so many of them.

It’s what you probably think - we exercise everyday, mostly running. Sometimes we do strength/cardio mixed exercises such as the Murph. Additionally to this we also gym everyday or at least 4-5 times a week. Mostly bench, squat and deadlifts.
> Doubts about my career
I’m in the infantry in the army so go figure... JK, it’s actually good. I believe that some suffering and pain makes you stronger and tougher. You gotta go through hardships in return to earn the title of being a man, a soldier, a grunt etc...

If I would change my career it would either be to start and run gyms that are for men only with focus on creating a Männerbund with the guys coming to the gym - or I would become a firefighter. I believe in helping others, specially if they are in need of help or service.

>Does your job make it hard to stay /fit/?
Yes. The work days are chaotic, you never have any idea what you're going to be doing until a day or two before. And we're usually working for over 12 hours, which is technically illegal under the AFI.

Its not terrible though, here and there we have very short days and sometimes we only work 3 days a week. But I'd still take a definite schedule over it, can't wait to get out in 4 years.

I own a business and have converted the back of the warehouse into a hardcore gym.
That's pretty sweet because i left between calls and whenever I have time.
The downside is the amount of travel, which makes diet a problem. Airports and drive through are not the best way to keep calories under control. I don't have great discipline so I do better at home in a fixed routine. I do choose my Hotels based on how good the gyms are now, the awesome ones are ones that don't have gyms but let you use a gym nearby for free.

Money isn't hard to come by, anyone who has the discipline to be fit could be rich, most simply don't like being out of their comfort zones.

I imagine it depends on the location, but 90+% of your customers are going to be piss-drunk and expect you to listen to Migos blasting at 120db while they have sex in the backseat
You have to keep your rating above a certain score, so if you're not a) charismatic and b) sucking the customers' dicks nonstop, they'll brutalize you with dishonest bad reviews which will cut into your profit. Apparently this has given way to a mafia-like system in some large cities where you'll basically get paid troublemakers who will report you if you so much as request that they settle down.

>What do you guys do for a living?

I'm a project/event manager in marketing. i specialize in alcohol and basically manage set up events, manage/staff the models, then do all the boring logistics stuff after. It was dope when I was younger because I get to go to all these festivals and have all my expenses/hotels paid for. But now that the novelty has worn off, it's hard to appreciate it.

>Does your job make it hard for you to stay fit?
I work 90-130 hours a week and fitness grounds me so I've always found a way to make it work. Now that I'm in my late 20s though I'm a lot more tired if I hit the gym late at night before getting a couple hours of sleep.

>Also is there any part of your job that makes you wish you picked something else as a career?
Yeah, it's just the hours. I've justified it by quitting for the other half of the year and traveling but after 7 years of doing that, I'm tired of starting over. I also have a better idea of what I want (work 3-4 days a week, live a simpler life, have enough disposable income to not have to worry) and it seems like IT provides that life. I'm planning to quit marketing once I get my bank accounts a little fatter, then bartend while I go back to school or figure something else out. I just want to focus more on gymnastics and I can't do that shit since I'm always on tour for work or working ridiculous hours.
