Posts I've Made
Posted 7 Apr 2014So I got a message from BBeck telling me this got pinned. And I wanted to stop by and say that I haven't given up on this. I just have been super busy with 100 hour work weeks this last month. I will be picking this up after we pass this milestone at my day job.
Posted 31 Mar 2014thanks andrew, I'll look into that
Posted 31 Mar 2014No feedback from anyone? None of you have ever heard of tabbing from form to form when you have an MdiParent?
Posted 24 Mar 20141) first post, and you revive a 2 year old thread?
2) if you're just sending resumes out, are you putting on your resume that you have a misdemeanor? Why are you doing that? You are not required to inform anyone of that, allow them to do a background check. An application might have a question about if you have a felony, but misdemeanors aren't felonies and you don't have to put that down. They should only be finding out if they directly ask you and you are honest, or if they do a background check. I highly doubt these employers are doing background checks on you before even starting you down the interview path... background checks are expensive, it's easier to pull you in and talk with you and get a read before hand. Also they need permission before running a credit or criminal background check.
Maybe they didn't call you back because they didn't like you. That can happen... a lot.
Posted 12 Mar 2014Agreed with tlhIn'toq.
Like I said, most of the places I lived weren't even in that calculator. Yet I've made great money, relative to my cost of living. My cost of living is like 25k where I live currently (before partying... woooh), and I own a house. I'm close enough to big city that if I want to visit I can, but far enough away that it's pretty cheap living (not as cheap as some no name town in the middle of nowhere, it's still a pretty hopping town where I'm at).
So cheap that I'm not even living there, and I'm working remotely from New England, again in a small town, where my living costs are low, but I can go skiing in just a half hour drive (well that'll stop this month).
Sure, I work for a small company no one has ever heard of. Sure I will probably never work for Google. But I don't care... I can travel around the country and work remotely out of small places and see stuff the way I like it. And know that if I needed to, for whatever reason, head back to Florida and the sunshine, and still make 3 or even 4 times my cost of living. This for a guy who grew up on food stamps in section 8 housing and doing things not exactly legal... I think I'm doing stellar!
