pls critique my resume for first internship (gPA yikes) by Vreien in resumes

Swap skills and education.

Remove interests. Not to sound rude, but no one cares. We only care about your ability to do a job.

Also, remove martial arts. That's irrelevant to any career you're seeking. Unless you're trying to become a martial arts instructor. Then keep it.

Honestly, you may be right. I am basing it off of average wait time; and the location of my destination from the proximity of where I live(d) (Now Sunset & Eastern).

San Antonio has no public transportation except for downtown by the river walk. They also lacked Uber and Lyft up until about a year ago.

LA bus transit times are atrocious (due to constant construction and traffic). Monterey Park to Montebello takes about an hour - and it's a mile away.

Sacramento bus lines mostly run in midtown/downtown, and the light rail runs to about Elk Grove - that's a redeeming quality of Sacramento though. The light rail will get you to the main neighboring cities, and the buses will run between neighborhoods. Bus lines stop running at night.

Austin buses, I actually lack any real knowledge outside of wait time (~25 minutes) - but the city is spread out, so transit times are way up there. Runs until about 1AM depending on route.

Minneapolis is spread out. Within the twin cities, you're fine and it's comparable. If you live outside of it? Good luck. Bus lines stop running at night.

Miami-Dade have 45 minute waits and only run until about 10PM.

So, Las Vegas having a 24 hour bus line - and the ability to get almost anywhere within an hour and a half at most, I'd consider it a lot better than those listed above.

Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Austin, Minneapolis and Miami.

Comparatively speaking? It might be lacking for what your standards are living here, but believe me - many places where you'd expect it to be great, have it much worse.

Ah, yeah. Henderson might have different route times.

Ah, I think they're every 18 minutes? Where abouts are you? Surely that's not too terrible...

The public transit here's 24 hours, and honestly the best I've seen in the few major cities I've lived in. Buses go everywhere.

I got a job transfer here two years ago, and while that job is long gone - I love this city.

Welcome!

People hire people they like. What are some ideas for getting job offers if interviewers don't immediately like you? by apprehensiveabtthis in jobs

[–]nix0n 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Converse with them like you would a colleague. Not a friend, a colleague. An acquaintance. Show interest in them, ask questions, etc. Fake it til you make it.

Undocumented Immigrant and Wife, lost job, had a miscarriage, and facing eviction. Please help. by [deleted] in payitforward

Try posting on /r/borrow. I wouldn't include the whole undocumented part though.

Edit: Actually, your account is too new. Look at the sidebar of /r/borrow.

Does anyone actually LIKE their job? If so what do you do? by tildodildo in jobs

[–]nix0n 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Many years in Help Desk, Tech Support, and 4 years as a road warrior fixing printers. 2 of those years I was an on-site admin fixing printers, and drove an hour to work add 3 hours back from work (traffic from San Francisco was horrid).

Do people really keep the pizza delivery guy waiting often? by benjaminikuta in answers

[–]nix0n 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, luckily he didn't wait too long, and we tipped him $10 for being dicks and not reading the part that said "drivers don't accept any bills larger than 20".

I felt really bad, because I only had $100 bill on me today and my wife had to run to the gas station to break it. The guy and I played a round of rocket league.

High School dropout with only one job and zero extracurricular activities, how on earth do I make a resume? by CrazedFirebaIl in resumes

[–]nix0n 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Those places don't typically need a resume, honestly. They should have paper applications on hand, ask the cashier for one.

I got a night job at 7-eleven out of boredom for a year or so, and that's all I did. Asked for an application.

I love my job. I'm a MPS Analyst (managed print services). I work from home, in sweatpants, 40+ hours a week, from the comfort of my desk. I start work around noon and finish around 8 or 9PM. I spend a lot of time with my wife, rack up vacation and sick time, then since the vacation time resets at the end of the year, I either take a month and a half off - or I cash it out.

My job only requires me to have internet access, so if I want to fly to, say Denver for a week - all I need to do is bring my laptops, and I don't have to take time off work, I'd just be working in the hotel room for ~8 hours. That's the upside.

The downsides: I can't really call in sick. I mean, I CAN - but I'd have to be REALLY dying to not be able to get out of bed and waddle over to my desk, so I typically don't. We're a 24hr operation, and I'm on-call 24 hours a day. I can get a phone call that wakes me up at 3am, and it would be a 300-device deployment that runs 12 hours. I can't leave my desk for 11 of those hours because we're in a global conference.

Like I mentioned, we're a global company with over 100,000 devices in our fleet, and about 3 people managing them. When things get busy, and they do, I can push 100+ hour weeks - which means, not much sleep and I don't leave my house/room. However, there's overtime (I refused to be salaried).

I write up process documentation A LOT. My last guide was about 190 pages. A lot of typing, research, asking questions, messaging, refining of facts and process AND I have to know everything the on-site techs know in addition to our process and procedures in the back-end.

I recently got another job offer for about $15k more a year but passed on it; because really... this is the best job in the world. Honestly, I don't know how much money it would take for me to switch jobs to where I'd have to actually go into an office.

Warning: do not trade with Fuey5000. Scammer alert. by [deleted] in TRADE

[–]nix0n[M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

Guys. If you don't trust one another, don't trade. Simple. Just because one person lacks trade history, and another doesn't want to send first, doesn't make either a scammer.

It just makes you paranoid, and it's understandable.

Remember that /r/trade is run on a trust system only. If you get conned out of money, there's nothing we can do but ban them and add to a known scammer list.

That's it. Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions.

Olympic skater Castelli loses custom costumes, skates in SF car burglary by bloobityblurp in sanfrancisco

[–]nix0n 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I had to re-read this title about 6 times before realizing she lost them in a car burglary.

I kept asking myself "...she's skating in what now? SF Car Burglary? I don't know enough about skating to dispute that that's a thing people could skate in..."

Anyways, just wanted to share my stupidity. Thanks for reading.

How common are tip pools in serving positions on the strip? by nix0n in vegaslocals

[–]nix0n[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah, my wife's a server at a restaurant. She's not a dealer. She just wasn't used to having a tip pool; and I've never, uh, been in the service industry here to know what the norm was.
