Pick something a learn it on the side then enter the job market. Get some IT certifications or certifications in whatever you want.

You're not going to get handed a good job just because you are interested in anything.

This is what I have been hearing. I have an offer in a decent sized machine shop now. Just wasn't sure how that field was. I can learn quick but how often do people actually move up the ladder? Can't survive on $12-$13 a hour. So ill work my ass of to move up quick.

I know, I don't expect it handed to me. I will look into the certifications. Thanks!

The railroads are experiencing a boom right now. Hiring non-stop without an education. As long as you are will to be trained. Don't know what area you are in but the railroads are everywhere. As long as you don't mind working log, crazy hours. Check out nscorp.com for starters. I could most definitely help if you have a set of tube doors for an XJ or YJ (heh)

Good news is most machine shops will let you work as many hours as you want, depending on if it's a union shop or not and any company policies on O.T. going to senior employees, ask during an interview. As far as moving up the food chain again during the interview process ask about the average age and seniority of the current employees. That'll give you a good idea of how they are to work for. The better the employer is to work for the longer people will stay there. However some times if there are a lot of guys who've been there a long time it may be a slow process waiting for them to retire or die off to open up an upper level position. Good luck to ya.

I'm glad the hard times in my life can be a joke you guys! Guess I could be like every other American and go on welfare to feed my kids and state funded health care.. But I'd rather put up with your childish shit on here in hopes of finding a job to feed my family and keep them off welfare.:thumb:
