this is the first time i hear about these (just googled comptia) .. Thanks , noted

As a gentoo user I’m guessing you already know a big chunk of knowledge for the LPI (linux professional institute) certs.

The comptia certs are moreso for IT, and less for comp sci. That said, they can still be useful in getting hired, and some of the info you’ll learn for them might paint a more complete picture

@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida Man I haven’t done any, at one point I was studying a lot of the free material on the web for these certs, but since learned I don’t want to do computery things for a living. 21:57:59
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida Man Also Nico I’m still working on finding a way to get an MXM GPU to work in a standard PCIe slot :p 21:58:51

@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkornersadly finding manual labor job that isn't a miserable sadness is quite difficult from my experience22:43:47
@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkornerit's not as much about difficulty as it is overly specific sanity draining stuff 22:44:17
@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkornereverything is windows, azure, aws, all that jaz :c22:47:08
@jbara:matrix.orgjbara Florida Man: in that case , is there a chance I can go to alaska with you for processing fish ? lol 22:50:55
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida Man

I agree korner, for me it was also just the realization I was condemning myself to sitting down in an office for the majority of my life, or working with mindless machines. I’d like to do something either with people or something where I have more of an impact.

Also yeah, most manual labor jobs are factory jobs (fish processing included). There are exceptions, mainly construction, especially outdoors geared ones (like railroad construction). Just make sure to look for a good union, there’s ones that hurt more than help

In the chance you were serious, most of these companies actually provide a lot of support to foreigners looking to work. It is annoying to work here as a foreigner paperwork etc wise, but they’ll help you out.

Plus, over the season, depending on how good the fishing is, you can easily make a net 10-20k USD, which seems to be worth a few pretty pennies in your country

@jbara:matrix.orgjbarawhere do I sign in then ? 😅 (I just googled how much the price of a ticket to alaska is, I think I'm serious now)23:03:18
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida ManOh also, they will also pay for your plane ticket to and from alaska! (At least if you’re from North America)23:04:19
@jbara:matrix.orgjbaraI'm not from north america unfortunately. And the plaine is kinda expensive , but I think I can deal with it.23:05:18
@jbara:matrix.orgjbaracan I DM you ?23:05:22
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida ManSure ofc23:05:27
@jbara:matrix.orgjbarathanks23:05:33
@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkornersadly i couldnt do much different manual labor so far because noone wanted to hire me23:12:52
@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkornerand right now the open spots are mostly for professional skills like welders, drivers, electricians and so on23:13:27
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida ManI’m thinking of working for UPS if this alaska thing falls through. 24 dollars an hour for moving boxes, and they pay time and a half for all hours in a day after 4. Plus benefits are nice. There’s definitely good paying work for manual labor out there, it’s just hard to find23:14:34
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida Man(Unless you’re in Florida)23:14:50
@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkornerim in europe so no clue how it works there23:15:18
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida Man Probably good. Florida is a different universe 23:15:56
@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkornermy last job was for 3.6 bucks a hour or so, overtime almost every single day, no bonuses to anything, 6 days a week, shit people shit boss, shit work conditions, just amazing place23:16:15
@helpterskelpter:matrix.orgFlorida ManJeeeez23:16:55
@mistrkorner:matrix.orgkorneri would probably be able to stay at that place but i got fired and the 6 days week work time would probably end me23:17:19
