What requirements do you need for a job like that? Any degrees or just self taught?
>>
>>32229190
Degrees are a must, it's a big fucking company, they can be extremely picky. Most of my coworkers have masters degrees, the others have bachelors, the only people with no college degrees (that I know of) are the security, cafeteria, and janitorial staff.
We are supposedly able to teach ourselves on the job, but in practice we are expected to learn new shit outside work, we're watched like hawks for downtime.

>Dead-end job vs career
Here's a simple analogy.
You are running a race.
You can jog at a steady relaxed pace and come in 12th place.
Or you can push yourself to your limit, work as hard as you can and possibly come in 2nd or even 1st.
Is the prize of 1st place worth the time and effort you put in to reach it.

You're not crazy, you've just been pushed from a young age to consider simple work as bad because we're at the point where everyone can easily be replaced unless you have a specialized skill set, and your parents wanted 'a better life' for you, which translates into better education.
The problem is that most of the population subscribed to this, so we're in the situation right now of everyone being overqualified.
Couple that with mass unqualified immigration and increasing amounts of automation and you've got a steadily more explosive powder keg brewing.
There's going to be some serious shit within the next decade or so.

>"A trains-lay-tore? What kind of job is that, Nonny?"
>"Oh, so here in your world ponies from other lands speak differently, and your job is to make sure everyone can understand each other?"
>"Wowie, it's like hundreds of parties going on at once and you can only join if you know the secret code!"
>"You should tell Twilight about this! She's been obsessed with non-pony stuff lately and would love to help you with those Joor-mane and Rush-in texts of yours!"

I feel ya. Asking for help sucks and doesn't usually work, but suicide is still too pathetic.

>"You run your own business? What do you do in it?"
"Well, nothing quite as cool as being a Wonderbolt."
>"C'mon 'Non, You know I don't judge, tell me what your business is about."
"Well, I go to people's houses and look at their computers, I clean em up, fix em if need be. All-in-all a comfy and pleasant job. Plus people like me cause I charge a ton less than the local repair/parts shop. Small town means word gets around about me quick enough, and I don't have to go very far."
>"That doesn't sound too bad. As long as you're happy, right?"

"Not as happy as I would be if you were real..."

Kinda interesting to see all the jobs of the anons of this board and their hopes and dreams
