    tinyhonkshus:west: If you don't know what you want to do, and feel like you don't have any experience at anything, that means you're starting from scratch - so what you have to do is take the time to figure out a plan before you implement some half-ass one. LIKE GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL..


    You speak the truth, Grad school was sort of my "shit i don't know what to do" card. Not even really sure what I want to do it in.

    Ideally, I'd like to work at school and continue to take classes like rattatack said, figure out what the hell I want to do. That actually sounds like a very plausible plan. Off to find a lab tech job.

    ok, so not to be that guy again, but i need work!

    found out that i'm almost definitely not getting my job at cambridge bikes back so i'm looking for anywhere else.
    ideally part time, not super strenuous, and understanding of all my random doctor's appointments

    i'm about 2 weeks away from seeing if my doctors can find a way to get me on state disability or some such thing.

    I don't really know what type of work you want, but the summer is coming, and I'm pretty sure The Odyssey will be hiring. It's a fine dining atmosphere on a boat. I could possibly help you if it's something you're interested in. You could work part time, and there are tips.tristan - thats fucking rad dude, I'm happy for you.

    My company is hiring.

    Join the ranks of fellow bfixters like me and obo. Well, obo used to work there. Just me now. We're hiring for pretty much every position. That webpage makes it all sound super cheesy, but its not a bad job for sitting at a desk.

    (every position = developer (points for mobile work), QA, tech support, project management)

    If you apply, and you get the job, and you've told them that I referred you, I will buy you a beer. Or ten.ascott430 - "Was going to build it up into a fixed gear until I realized I'd rather spend money and time on mountain bikes."

    i had this conversation with a friend about that same thing re; clinical studies
    i wish i could find it and copy & paste

    briefly
    it's because they want to weed out a certain type of person from applying to their jobs
    they want hipsters who ride cuz it's cool, even though their parents paid for their communications degree from BU
    not poor people who ride because they have toMust be awful, being so fluffy.

    It seems like that qualification (when it's unnecessary for the job) is a big part of the problem we're having right now with education inflation. Why do you have to have a college degree to deliver food? Not all of us were born with someone to pay for an unnecessary degree.

    no, totes!
    and that's what i'm saying

    you're usually part of a certain type/class if you WERE born with someone to pay for an unnecessary degree that isn't going to be used, ya know?
    and it's super gross but a lot of people don't want to deal with someone who isn't in that class (they want those middle/upper class white kids)

    that's what i was saying to my friend who asked why you need a degree to participate in a sleep study:
    because there are 2 types of people who are most likely to participate in clinical studies (particularly those that don't pertain to a certain illness)(and probably similar to those applying to Dash, etc): very poor or homeless folks, and college students/recent grads/college age white kids
    both Dash and MGH are trying to weed out the former with their degree requirements

    They may (in the case of clinical trials) be trying to avoid poor/homeless people at least in part because they are a potentially exploited group and so there are more regulatory hurdles to jump through.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    ^common misconception. just because you're poor and/or homeless doesn't mean you aren't enrolled in college or the recipient of a college degree.

    Looking for short term work. My lab is out of money and my department's out of teaching positions, so I'm not getting paid again until July 13th. I'll be working part time in lab and will be out of town June 15-22. anyone know of some 10-15hr/wk work. I've got a masters in Chemistry (useless for these purposes, I assume), bike know-how but no shop experience, and the ability to do hours of mindless tasks at a time.
