Search - "robert plant"
So I keep receiving emails from these dumbass positivity addicted folks who I believe work for the ministry of social development or some shit. I got my first job (an internship) from them through my school during senior year, they had me work "tech support" at elementary schools, where the government had recently given away shitty laptops for the kids.
Well that job sucked, I couldn't actually help the brats fix their machines because we weren't allowed (or given tools) to fuck with the hardware so nine out of ten times all they had me do is fill out forms and send those broken piles of garbage straight to the manufacturer. How thrilling. I got paid a laughable sum after about six months and spent the whole fucking check on tickets to see Robert Plant. No regrets.
Now either I left a good impression or they were extremely short on personel because they offered me an actual job the following year, but the experience left such a bad taste in my mouth I never sent a response. But they've just kept emailing me about "opportunities for skilled young labourers" and dubious shit like that, and honestly since I'm both unemployed and curious I just felt the need to fill out their stupid google form and sign up for what I'm fairly certain is the dumbest fucking bootcamp in the history of bullshit guidance groups.
Do I do this because I'm desperate or bored? I think it's a little bit of both. I don't expect anything but let's see what comes out of this, I really, really need some fucking money and no one's hiring dumbass selftaught retro-graphics wankers like me right now. I might at least get a few laughs out of it.2
