My CompTIA Server+ book just came today in the mail. This definitely feels more at my level in comparison to the CompTIA Linux+. Plus the book is a lot thinner in comparison/less to memorize. It's kind of like the advanced CompTIA A+. Not exactly, but similar level to the A+. I'm trying to get into Teksystems for a job (I'd be working as an hourly contractor for Teksystems until that company hires me). I know that IT is a very competitive field. I'm just trying to get back into the IT industry ASAP and not these lousy jobs at these weird restaurants that are honestly mediocre/average at best.
I hate dishwashing. I believe that I've already said this on another forum. You most likely work for minimum wage with little or no tips, get treated like crap by the cooks and management, and slowly resent the job itself. It can also be very easily replaced by a robot (which I hope it does). You likely also work until "finish", which can vary depending on the day/night or season or type of restaurant business. It's a boring, repetitive, unpleasant job position that would be a perfect fit for a robot (hopefully). Most people should stay away from restaurant jobs in general unless you're a manager.
As the title explains I'm currently having trouble holding a job. So here's where this started: I was working at my local community college as a federal work study/student employee. I got into a political debate with some rabid liberals on facebook, they called for my head to get me fired. They got my head and I was let go.
Then within 2 weeks I started working as a dishwasher at one of the local country clubs (a step back) and I quit there because of Uber costs and I wasnt getting enough hours.
After I quit there I got a job at taco bell. I wasnt a good fit and within 3 weeks I was let go (wasnt a good fit). Then while searching for technology jobs on the side I got hired for a week as a dishwasher at a restaurant walking distance from my house. I worked there for 1 week as a dishwasher and then I never heard back. I'm trying to get a most likely salaried IT position that I'm a good fit for but right now I'm having trouble holding/keeping a job. what am I doing wrong that's preventing me from holding a job?
