(coming on 12 years ago since I first stepped foot here now)
Also, from the "Signs I am looking in the wrong job field" dept.:
So I was pointed to a "part time" English teaching gig for kids. Nothing too fancy I thought, some decent work possibly. I then did some math...
2700*23 = 62100 ... * 4 = 248400 or so a month...wow, most of the IT gigs I have been introduced to demand 2~3 times the hours and 2/3 the wage.
Yeah, nothing wrong with English teaching.
(though to be honest, raising my son is a full time job on its own so being unemployed right now still feels like working full time)
