Teaching as a Means of Self-Preservation

:iconlesighplz:

So a few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to apply for a commission job at a computer repair shop. I went in, did the interview, got the job. I did my training as I was supposed to. Then after that, nothing. My boss has had nothing for me to do, and half the time isn't even around. So I have nothing to work on; thus I'm making no money. None.

And the problem is, there aren't any other jobs in this area. The only jobs right now are in education. And what I've noticed is there is always jobs in education, AND NOTHING ELSE.

Here's what I see when I look at those education jobs: Until a market actually opens up for the people a teacher is trying to teach, the teacher is really teaching them to become the teachers of the next generation. It's an endless cycle of taking the same job and passing it on from year to year without anything to show for it.

And don't get me wrong. I love teachers; I've had some amazing teachers and professors who I still look up to, even to this day. But it's absolutely pointless when there's nothing at all to branch out from. It's like you learn a skill, but the only way you can apply it is by teaching others that skill. And that annoys me to no end.

TL;DR: I want to work and there's nothing for me to do at the moment. I blame the system.

Regardless of who's in the OA, Congress hasn't been doing good either and it partially to blame for the nation's economic woes. Yet they seem to, more often than not, get off scot free. Why is that?

Has it ever crossed your mind that you could just waltz over to the nearest temp agency and apply there? That's how I got my current job.

You apparently aren't good at looking for jobs because it's HARD for teacher's to find good jobs.

You also need all skills taught to get good jobs, and not just teaching it to others :roll:
