    I just simply didn't work for two full years and lived entirely on my savings for a two glorious years of NEET-dom. When the money was almost out I easily found a job and quickly got promoted at it, been at the same job ever since.. Feels good.

      Literally the same. I spent 2 years after covid either doing nothing, or more recently just teaching at a university. Literally worked between 3 and 6 hours per week to support myself. Just started a new full time job this week. Frick full time, its shit.
      If anyone asks why you have a gap, just say you either had a traumatic death in the family, or a injury/illness. Thats all you need to say, no questions will ever be asked by any employers to follow up.

        It's crazy how late people are entering the workforce. Older generations usually got their first job at 16 but I don't know of a single 16 year old working. Most of the young people we hire are not straight out of college but spent a couple years doing menial jobs. So you essentially have people who are 26 starting their first full time serious job.

          That's because of clown managers who've infested even the lowest levels of jobs who think that you can just hire a person and they'll immediately hit the ground running with no further input on your part. So now places that used to hire 16 year olds with no experience will only hire a 37 year old who has had 48 jobs.

            It's just homosexual boomer managers and ~~*executives*~~ being greedy fricks, expecting every hire to be perfect out of the box and refusing to do any training on their own. Don't do this for serious stuff where they will definitely verify, like anything to do with law or healthcare or transportation, but for a lot of jobs you can bullshit them into thinking you have the right experience with just a little research.

            Don't feel bad about lying to employers/HR/boomers. They created this mess (especially boomers, pulling the ladder up behind them after they didn't have to jump through nearly as many hiring hurdles when they were younger) and they lie to applicants and employees all the time. Just be smart about it.

              was an anon on here who went one step beyond that and had made fake websites and social media profiles for a non existent company, with himself as the reference so he could step into a tech job without any formal experience and was immediately on a high salary.
              he did list all the specifics, think I saved the thread at the time while talking to him.
              he said he just learned while on the job after that and it sent him from neet to high salary in one step that led to several other good jobs afterwards.

          In the 1950s men were expected to have a house, a car, a wife and at least 2 kids by the age of 20 lol. Times have changed. I'm a millenial and it was expected for me to at least move out by the age of 20-25, nowadays for zoomers it's pretty normal for them to stay with their parents until 30, mostly due to how utterly fricked the housing market and the economy are.

        Switch fields bro, do a 1 year reorientation course to some shitty sector that desperately needs more workers and you'll never have to worry about internship bs or job security ever again.
        I went from:
        >Only one half-year full time internship with exactly the skills we seek? Sorry anon we need some more experience
        >Yes we had a job interview, but what about our second interview?
        >Can you write a 10 page essay about how you'd fix our shitty problem before the interview, its a test to see how well you would do here 😉
        >Wow what a nice essay, we'll be sure to bring up your suggestions in our next meeting, still not hired though
        >Oops you did a fine interview but we're not convinced about the psychological profile meme test we made you do, better luck next time!
        To:
        >Wow anon, i'd think you'll do great here despite having 0 experience and no clue about how our organization works. Wanna start today? Great!! Here is your full time job with some extra time off just for you 🙂
        >What?? You still want to think about it for a while? No why would you do that... UwU pls dont leave ... Come back anon ...

        Jobs are simple enough: if a sector needs you they'll be fighting to hire you, if not you get fricked cause you aint mr perfect and Kelly from HR got the ick cause she didnt like your shoes. Yeah it means you have to do jobs not a lot of people want to do but I've come to prefer that. "If I wasn't here they might not have found anyone that can/wants to do this" is a lot more motivating that " I got lucky cause i knew someone or gave em the right vibe during the interview"

      If you've been telling them the gap is because you couldn't find work then I wouldn't, I have a similar situation and I usually say that I took an intentional break to "travel" or something like that especially if the interviewer is a woman. I don't know for sure that it affects anything but I have a hunch that they really are that unsympathetic and superficial.

      I had a 3 month gap after some layoffs and I just closed it.
      Even for the job I eventually got I told them I was still employed.
      They can’t check with your current employer because it could alert them to your leaving so places are forced to trust you on the last place
      I’ve also given myself promotions twice when leaving a job
      Last time I claimed I was a senior manager when I was only a team lead
      I doubled the headcount under me and interviewed for director positions
      Why are you morons all telling the unvarnished truth on your resumes
      Finally, during Covid I was a director at one place and I worked as a contractor dev at another almost doubling my salary for 2 years (director paid slightly less up front because it included bennies like 401k matching, and also RSU comp. Contractor job was $120/h full time and somehow I got added to fricking pagerduty so any time I got a call I raped them in my time log)

      I literally lied in every aspect of my life, never once regretted it. As you lay awake at night staring at the ceiling you can craft an entire life story for yourself, make it detailed so you can't be caught in your bullshit, better yet start believing it's real. There's nothing evil about it, its a temporary measure that will give you confidence you lack because of all the things you missed out on/all the time you wasted and are now ashamed of.

      "Fake it till you make it" is real. Boomers have known this for over half a century.

                My previous job was overnight security and while I did have coworkers, my time with them was pretty limited and I'm pleasant enough of a person to avoid conflict unless necessary, so I didn't fight with any of them.
                I'll tell ya right now it's not good enough of an answer because after they flipped out at my silence, I said "I just can't think of a time I was in disagreement with a coworker" and they then asked for the hypothetical.
                >but what the frick answer were they looking for?
                I said something along the lines of "I'd try to make it abundantly clear what our issue is in order to avoid any confusion and attempt to resolve it ourselves. If we cannot come to an agreement, I'd speak with a supervisor."
                They're not looking for honesty, they wanna see how you act under pressure (you're far more stressed in the interview than them) and if you can make use of enough buzzwords. This is from my viewpoint, however, and I've never had a job that wasn't easy to get. I'd bet more technical interviews are a pain in the ass.

            that's easy. an elephant is an asset. people pay to see elephants. even more if the elephant can do tricks. so obviously we can find a way to monetize the elephant.
            so anyway I'll fake my death to avoid taking ownership of the elephant

            African or Indian elephant? Because that heavily depends on what I do. If it's Indian, ride it around to run errands pretending to be Prince Ali from Aladdin. Let it graze on my neighbor's lawn and shit all over his yard. If the police come, let them. What are you going to do, arrest my elephant? Arrest me? How about Peanuts here sits on your patrol car and pistol whips you across the street with her trunk? Fricking homosexuals, I'd just give it to you if I could. Go talk to the douchebag who gave me this thing and bade me not to sell it.

            African elephants are more aggressive and I probably couldn't train one. But they never said anything about not killing the elephant with a slug to the brain. And then selling the resulting ivory.
            Also surely elephants are edible, at least in some cultures.

      It’s a trick question. Find something that you either overcame or is a positive for the job. For me I say I’m overly tenacious. And then explain how I budget my time and look at the big picture to overcome it.

      this one contributed to wrecking an interview for me.
      worst interview I've ever had, the power freak was the owner of the company. had written an application, had a phone call, a second phone call, met with a woman lower down in the office for an interview, then had to come back for an interview with the owner, that called himself a "ceo", despite only employeeing 6 people in the main office, the rest were contracted out. those stages all went fine, but the final stage was a 20 minute demonstration in the owners office while he observed, with a secretary as the simulated client.
      after that was done, he talked with her alone, then brought me back in and criticised me for 5 minutes solid like a lunatic. I wasn't even employed by the company, just having a job interview.
      i then justified some of it saying more or less he'd given me a dud "client" because she wasn't what had been described to me when I'd been preparing for it the days before, then he said he still wanted me working there but for a lower position.
      i walked out at the end and didn't bothered talking to the one in the office that was supposed to sort me out with the job. I should have criticised him back and said "if you can spend 5 minutes laying into someone who doesn't even work four you and still want to employ them, I certainly wouldn't trust your decision making abilities as a boss".
      instead I left and never contacted them again, but it fricked up my self confidence for months.
      it was the having to sit and listen to it - when I had experience and was good at my job.
      if any of you ever have someone treating you like that, just leave while he's mid sentence, it'll be healthier.

        It looks like he wanted to hire you but was trying to talk you down to a lower position/pay for the same work. Unless you recognized that and could turn it around in the interview, good thing you walked off.

          I think you're right, and have thought that might have been the case before. reason being that during one of the first phone calls with a HR guy, they'd asked what my expected salary was, I'd said what I'd seen as the average for that type of work, based on my experience.
          the guy on the phone seemed slightly surprised.
          the owner didn't mention it but no doubt it was on the paper in front of him during the whole thing.
          it felt like it was personal to him, it was really weird behaviour because if you don't want someone working for you, you really wouldn't waste that amount of time insulting and criticising them.
          if he'd been decent and professional I would have perhaps considered the lower position, but he was unprofessional and went beyond his scope as a potential employer. some power tripping freak.
          the office was a joke too, the rest of the building was being renovated for another company, and the place looked a shambles in general. seemed ridiculous him calling himself a "ceo", so I guess it was part of his general behaviour to want to pretend be bigger than he really was.

    Interview questions are literally just to see if you're a convincing liar or not. No one answers any of them honestly, so why should you answer that one honestly?

      Don't be upset Anon, you've actually been given a huge gift. You are an employment wizard unsullied and not brainwashed into thinking wagecuckery and a 50 year career is what you simply need to do.

      You shall be a small business owner, beholden to nobody but your own whims. Find some niche that you like, and are even moderately knowledgeable in and do it. You'll never be able to work for anyone but as long as you aren't a totally lazy moron, you will gain the ability to employ cucks so that you can actually be a lazy moron.

      You can sexually harass female employees and call rude customers Black folk and you'll have no HR to stop you. Pick a hobby you like and then go start a retro vidya shop or a hunting supply store or something and you'll just be able to chill and print money and talk to cool like-minded people all day long.

        Companies pretend to be short staffed AND constantly hiring while simultaneously making their listings have ridiculously high requirements (like a heavy construction vehicle license and min 5 years experience for a palette jack job) because of that stupid Australian economist frickwit who famously said

                My last job I worked as a guy to put orders into boxes. Brand clothing. Bathroom breaks were allowed, but you had to hit your number each week. The Bathroom was about a seven minute walk. Seven minutes back. So you've lost fifteen minutes of production and have to haul ass to catch up to your number.

                I also got screened every time I had to go to the bathroom or came into work or left work. I had to take my sweater off, empty my pockets, go in front of a screener and then show my socks and my underpants to the security guy.

                Pretty insane when I think about it now. It was like high level security. I've gotten into a discussion twice in the three years that I worked there. I wore some underpants from Jack & Jones and showed it to the security guy

                >You're wearing brand clothing
                >Wut?
                >Brand clothing

                >I'm writing you up
                >Come on dude, you've known me for over a year. Do I look like I would steal underpants or socks.
                >I'm calling the boss

                So then he calls the boss. I'm fuming. The boss comes and there we are: three grown men talking about the state of my underpants.
                >Can't you see how fricking ridiculous this is?
                >The rules are the rules

                He got me there. I knew about the rules.Two warning I got because I forgot to fricking check what kind of drawers I put on in the morning.

                And why? You want to know why? Because 100% of the people working there were on daily contracts and were Johnny Foreigners. They love brand clothing.

                It's my own fault to put myself into a situation like that, but I got a nice taste of where society is headed. It was a prison.

It's impossible for our mum to keep up with whose socks are whose or whose drawers are whose. So the Jack & Jones underpants was just me wearing one of my brother's boxers. Naturally, I blame my brother and his snobbism for this whole debacle.

                It was just absurd. Watch me on the news when I lead a whole country into war because of an underpants mix-up.

      People don't very often "don't want to work ever at all in any capacity". Most humans like the concept of "having something to do and a bit of motivation to do it according to some schedule". Much more often the problem with long-term neets is that they "can't hold" a job, and they typically know it themselves.
      It's often some combination of, or simply one of:
      - Genuine medical depression that is deep/serious enough
      - A number of mental health issues leading to executive function disorder
      - Addictions and similar issues
      - ADHD and other problems with concentration
      - Schizoid traits which make the person basically an observer of his own life who daydreams a lot and gets dopamine out of imagining future outcomes without having to work for them
      At least some of these can still keep their life afloat (sorta) by resorting to selling things etc instead of working. They have an alright executive function, they can Get Things Done in critical situations. But then there are others who won't even be able to walk into a homeless shelter for help or do other basic survival stuff that requires pulling off some moderately simple "plan". Even if someone literally just hands them a job, some simple job where you just need to show up and do like 1-2 hours per day of actual work at most, they won't be able to hold it. They technically have a medical disability, a serious one, but unless you are missing a leg or something the society doesn't see you as disabled. These kinds of people will very quickly become homeless without a family that supports them, and then dead within a year (might depend on climate, country, luck, etc).

        All of the things you've stated could be applicable to a normal, in society functioning human being. That's why I don't like psychology. It appeals to the victim mentality and vanity of humans.

        >You're not getting yours. Poor you, it was your poor upbringing. Here take these pills

        There are people who genuinely have problems, but psychology is such a grey area and it appeals to the worst in humans. Where you feel someone has to take care of you and the blame is outside of yourself. And if the blame is to seek within yourself, then just take these pills or take some therapy sessions. It will solve everything. And if it doesn't. At least it will make the money wheel turn around and around and around.

        I make my choices and I take responsibility for them. There are people who are genuinely struggling, but that's maybe 1%. Most of them just need a kick in the ass and be told that nobody gives a shit about them as long as they're going to act as whiney little b***hes.

        Or, you can take these pills.

          That's the thing though. I'm not talking about "functioning" human beings like you said. The kind who decides that 8-5 work (or whatever other arrangement) isn't for him, and does whatever he wants for fun, while making sure that he doesn't starve to death from lack of money. Maybe such a person does only seasonal work. Maybe they figure out some investment thing. Idk, but they "make things work" for themselves. This is a functional human being. He just doesn't like the default work arrangement that the modern society offers.

          But then there are people who can't even watch a movie for some 5 minutes because their mind wanders elsewhere, despite their best attempts to stay focused. People who can't realize their own passion projects / hobbies / whatever small-scale plans because executing even these simple plans driven by their own interest is too insurmountable for them. People who, when left without their parents retirement money, will starve to death in their own house because getting their life situation sorted out is way too complicated of a plan for them. They might take months to go to Ikea to buy the set of boxes that they wanted to rearrange stuff on their room. And I mean literal months, their brain is that much gooed. This kind of person wants to function, but can't.

            I can perfectly understand where you're coming from. There is always a human element to it. Perhaps I should consider myself lucky I was forced into situations where I needed to grow up. But like I said, these are only a small segment of the populace. You could be cynical about it and say it's negligeable.

            The way I'm looking at it, is to try and survive our current situation with the least amount of casualties possible. Which is the same as any enlightend civilazation has tried to do from the beginning. You can measure the degree of a civilization in the way they take care of their sick and their dead.

            The economy is shrinking and the people who are not well mentally is rising. How do you rhyme these two? How can you solve this problem within the system and without having a revolution?

            The grim answer is war. Like a pendulum. We've been in the longest period of prosperity and without war since the two world wars.

            Capitalism is a faulty system. So is democracy. So is Communism.

            What exactly has 'ruined' the world? Internet? The very thing that would bring us closer together.

          Our current society is rotten to the core culturally and financially. Most people are debt slaves. Saying there is nothing wrong with society where there clearly this is the case, is simply gaslighting.

          But I do agree that self accountability and responsibility is a must. We have to play with the cards we got, even if they are shitty cards.

        I'm one step away from the schizoid description; mine was situationally rooted.
        did exceptionally well in several subjects at school, good athlete too. secondary school was corrupt and despite being top of the class/year in maths for the last two years of primary school having worked on material that was 3-4 years higher in level, and top for the first two years of secondary school too, in the third year they dumped me in the lowest set of four in the year, meaning I was put with the morons and frick ups, where I continued to have the highest marks in the class.
        despite that they kept me there for the full three years and wanted to force me to take a lower paper with all the morons for the final exam.
        i insisted on taking the higher paper and scored a B. keep in mind the lower paper's highest possible grade was a C.
        there were numerous other ways they collectively sabotaged my time there - it was a selective school taking only the top 2% of students in the first place.
        when I was 2 days away from returning to the place for my upper high school years of 16-18, i found a letter of about five lines in length from the school telling me not to return.
        that meant I had 2 days to find a new school, with all the places/courses having been filled by that time.

          People don't very often "don't want to work ever at all in any capacity". Most humans like the concept of "having something to do and a bit of motivation to do it according to some schedule". Much more often the problem with long-term neets is that they "can't hold" a job, and they typically know it themselves.
          It's often some combination of, or simply one of:
          - Genuine medical depression that is deep/serious enough
          - A number of mental health issues leading to executive function disorder
          - Addictions and similar issues
          - ADHD and other problems with concentration
          - Schizoid traits which make the person basically an observer of his own life who daydreams a lot and gets dopamine out of imagining future outcomes without having to work for them
          At least some of these can still keep their life afloat (sorta) by resorting to selling things etc instead of working. They have an alright executive function, they can Get Things Done in critical situations. But then there are others who won't even be able to walk into a homeless shelter for help or do other basic survival stuff that requires pulling off some moderately simple "plan". Even if someone literally just hands them a job, some simple job where you just need to show up and do like 1-2 hours per day of actual work at most, they won't be able to hold it. They technically have a medical disability, a serious one, but unless you are missing a leg or something the society doesn't see you as disabled. These kinds of people will very quickly become homeless without a family that supports them, and then dead within a year (might depend on climate, country, luck, etc).

          i lasted 3 months in the replacement high school before they also kicked me out one day out of the blue, without informing my parents. they just called me into the principals office which was weirdly darkened, 3 of them sitting there like a tribunal and said I should leave. I asked if I should stay til the end of the day and they said no. so I just walked out at 16 without saying bye to any of my classmates/friends, having been kicked out of two schools within 3 months, never having been in trouble for anything, and having done all the work.
          walked home across the fields and then was suddenly without anything I my life at just 16 from December to the following September.
          then joined an even worse 'school', where one of the teachers was absent for a year without a replacement as he had a heart problem.
          didn't even bother with the exams there and lost all visions of the future, turning into a hermit for a decade or longer.
          around that age I'd also tried working, at age 17 - and after several months working for a friend of a friend of my parents, they refused to pay me anything.
          then a year later I collaborated on a sizable project and was then kicked from the team that kept all my work in, and removed my credit/name completely.
          there were some other things, coming all during the same 2-3 year period. bought a computer with my entire savings so I could work on my self taught skills and the company went into "voluntary liquidation", taking all my money with them.
          it was just too much for me to deal with at that age and I shut down completely.
          had no guidance and didn't know what to do

        I did get promoted. Which means no raise in pay for a while, you have to take care of shitters who don't do their job and you go home and become a boozehound because you can't handle it.

        I don't like being responsible for other people. I like it just fine when I do my job and I'm left alone. I don't like being in the middle where I get shit on by the higher ups because my colleagues are bums.

        I've been promoted three or four times. It's always the same:
        - Prove your worth for a year and then you'll get a raise in pay, which you have to go beg for, which I personally find disgraceful.
        - Take care of a bunch of lazy shitters
        - Do overtime because they don't do their jobs

        I'm not made to be above other people, because I walk around angry and stressed all the time. That's why I like lower position. If I do my job well, I'm left alone and don't take my worries home with me. If my colleague is a lazy shitter, let someone else take car of it. I'm not a daycare center.

          Last time I had some responsibility and had to keep oversight, I shared it with another colleague.

          He always went MIA. I was naieve enough to believe he had a valid reason each time. I'm not Big Brother keeping tabs on everyone.

          After a while it did become so glaringly obvious, I started to ask around. He always ran to the shitter. Probably to go watch some tiktok vids.
          A fricking stoner too, need I say more?

          I told him a couple of times. Then I raised my voice, then I went higher up and got him fired. I felt guilty about it, even though I was in the right. I'm not cut out to be in conflict situations everyday. It takes too much out of you.

          Maybe I'm mildly autistic in the sense that I like order and cleanliness. Normally, when you share the workload, everybody could have a good time. I was in a situation where I constantly had to negotiate with other people in order to get them to do their fricking jobs. The very thing they are paid to do. To me that's absurd. So yeah, I couldn't handle it.

        I've found that a decent percentage of normies consider you a weirdo if you don't have social media, and a bad kind of weirdo. The kind that you don't want to hire.

        (asking for social media during the hiring process isn't really a thing where I live, I just mean in general - HR wouldn't want to hire a weirdo freak, any kind of weirdo freak, because he's potentially an unpredictable wild card, and the reactions to not having social media seem to paint me this exact kind of a weirdo freak)

It's telling them social media was bad for your mental health and anyone who uses it would understand how that happens. Also, prioritizing your mental health is the hot meme in the normiesphere. They would like that you were aware of time-wasting garbage and proactively took steps to remove it from your life too.

            It's not the explanation for the lack of social media that bothers us (me and the guy you responded to). It's your proposed wording.

            Avoid the wording "mental help" and any wording that implies that you're well versed in mental health, because that sounds to them like you're visiting a shrink and poorly trying to hide it, which is a red flag. Use simpler language, speak about it kind of like a hillbilly but maybe not literally *that* simply. "I found that it wastes time, I find myself less happy, I feel like I'm more productive about my life when I'm unplugged so to say", that kind of language.

            I have apparently raised red flags with a fricking professional doctor when it "turned out" that I knew that humans can subconsciously judge distance to objects due to having two eyes / stereo vision. Apparently this isn't a normal thing for a normie to know and it was very suspicious that I would go out of my way to learn such a specialized knowledge when it isn't related to my profession. I'm dead serious btw.

This came up when she asked about my vision, and I replied that my left eye sees just a little bit worse than the right one, but I don't need glasses and this difference in vision is very small and doesn't affect my depth perception or anything like that. She asked what I meant with depth perception, I explained, and she was very disturbed that I know something like this.

                Absolutely hilarious: I learned that depth perception had to do with having two eyes in like 2004 when I was a kid and I read a Concerned comic (that HL2 webcomic) where a Combine elite soldier fails to pickup a mug and blames "lousy depth perception" because the elite soldier outfits only have a single eye hole. Sometimes I fail to realize how dumb most people are.

                See, on one hand, maybe my explanation of it which, among other things, mentioned the classic Greek example of determining the distance to a far away ship by measuring the parallax, was a bit too nerdy / autistic. (but I've known this example since I was like fricking 6)

                I don't know if it is anything to do with "boomer", quite the opposite I would think. people in the past were less specialised and more knowledgeable in a wider range of topics, especially when work related.
                specialisation has become increasingly common, in medicine, engineering, sciences and research.
                i has my father and uncle as an example, they seemed to know everything about every subject, so I just felt it is a normal duty to be informed about things.
                i suppose it depends who you mix with, it can just be that most people are dimwits, and doctors are on average 120-130 iq but spent half their life focused on one thing and aren't necessarily particularly informed people.

                I'm in Eastern Europe, post-Soviet, and I actually mostly see the opposite. Pre-wall-fall boomers are like I described. Many of them think that to learn how to do something you need to complete formal courses and all that kind of stuff. Often the idea that you can frick around in the TV's menu and figure out how to do what you need to do terrifies them. I was straight up punished for that as a kid because Normal People (tm) call a TV master for this! That sort of stuff.

                Younger generations have a far healthier relationship with the concept of picking up knowledge/skills more casually.

                interesting, it's the opposite to my experience, so it must be cultural.
                i liked the challenge of figuring things out with a manual as a last resort, or for extremely specific things. my family would always repair/make things themselves, so that's what I learned too.
                i noticed my father would pick up applicable knowledge from almost any source - maybe it's an east/west thing.
                from what I've read of old Russian fiction, then exploration and curiosity/self reliance was a normal and valued part of the culture there too, so it must have been soviet indoctrination as you said that forced everyone to be fearful and dependent.

      To expand on that, my last interview, I started talking about myself. My brother had cleaned up my resume. I've never lied at a job interview, maybe sometimes omit things. He removed three jobs and changed the dates on the other ones. I wasn't used to lying at job interviews.
      So there I was, telling them about my career and I see them glance at each other.
      >Oh shit, I forgot, this job isn't on my resume anymore.
      And down the toilet it went. Goddamn moron that I am. If you're going to clean up the truth a little bit, at least be smart and aware of it. I just forgot that it's supposed to give you a better chance if you're not honest.

      I'm not a victim here. Just having some problems adjusting. It's a learning process. Applying for a job is something you can learn. If you do ten interviews, your tenth will be better than your first one. Failure is a part of the process.

      pick a course and do it and for the rest of it just add in a mixture of freelance and other work for companies that no longer exist, or startups.
      one anon on here last year said he'd just made fake companies, put a little website up, a linkdin for it and set up an email to respond to reference requests himself.
      do that.

      You're practically a baby. Don't let it get to you but you should start with something sooner rather than later. Otherwise when you are closing in on your 30s you'll regret it deeply. 7 years is a long, long time. Think about what you want to do.

    I have many years of unemployment and potential employers seem satisfied hearing that I've been self employed during that time. Pretty easy excuse.

            I don't own a company but sometimes I do odd jobs like spreading mulch or planting flowers. Not a total stretch. I also do day jobs for a shitty temp agency that has jobs I can accept over an app.

    For me it's about finding a job where you can essentially do frick all and get paid for it as long as you turn up. Been doing it for about 5 years here, WFH most days, spend all morning browsing the web an occasionally getting a message from someone to fix something which takes me about 5 minutes which I pretend took half an hour.

    Yeah after uni I was a NEET for almost 4 years but I lied and said I was a private teacher. Managed to get a job in the field I wanted to. Comfy so far.

    I am 21 year old schizophrenic. I've been living at home since I left secondary school. I haven't worked since I was 18. I got rejected from 5 jobs last year because of both the gaps in employment and my schizophrenia. Guess I'll just chill at home some more. Whatever

      also remember that a "firm handshake" can't be defined.
      there's no pounds per square inch listed for what it constitutes.
