    i mostly agree with pic related but restaurant work is actually difficult. servers make pretty good money and many of the cooks have experience and are on salary. id only consider hosts and busboys to be wagie level.

      Yeah it really depends on the restaurant. I would say anything with a dedicated school is a real job.

          The work is interesting and the culture at my bank is fucking sweet. But yeah, I've averaged 87hrs a week. Also the pay is really nice, $55/hr with $80/hr overtime. Do the math how much I've made 8 weeks in...

      Software dev here, I don't make much but I WFH, and have a lot of freedom on when to actually work as long as I get shit done. It's the perfect IST job especially if you have a home gym or do calisthenics.

      I make $58k as a software dev. job is super comfy and low-stress plus I like my team so I have no plans to leave. I do about 5-15 hours of actual work each week.

      Nope, but I'm speeding through an online cs degree (hectic course load, tested out of some courses, and transferred some credits) now so I should have a cs bachelors by the time I quit.

        Quite a bit less, yes first job at a startup. It's very comfy other than that and I don't have to do much work, only like 8 hours of actual work a week max. Other thing is that the work I do in my job is not something you'd have a junior do. Atleast it'll make my resume look better? Planning on staying for a total of about a year and a half before trying to get a higher paying position where I'll actually have to work.

        Wtf I’ve been a developer for 5 years and I’ve never had to know any of these

        It's for system design. Are you a senior dev yet? They even ask questions about it in junior dev interviews sometimes.

          Same. I could be making more but my team is great and I don’t work much. I make $110k +$20k-$30k a year in bonuses though. Recent grad w/ masters.

          The companies are INSANELY desparate for new hires rn. I’m sure you could get more $$$ but I def feel the not wanting to leave a good setup. A lot of companies suck. CO, USA

          Also this job is amazing for IST I have so much time to rest and workout plus plenty of $$$.

          That honestly seems a lot nicer as a junior dev. Im getting 75k but im literally working 12 hours a day to attend meetings which are 4 hours, go over business logic, go over code, and studying literally everything to get myself ready to start contributing to the project. Oh and I work 6 days a week, I just dont tell anyone i work sunday.
          My plan is to learn as much as I can but act stupid so that they dont expect much work from me but enough so that they see potential and not want to fire me

      This.

      Basically any high level knowledge based job where you are paid for your 'expertise' instead of your time. If it's relatively low stress that's also a bonus. It gives you enough time in the day to lift without a time crunch, and you benefit from not having the ultimate gains goblin cortisol pumping through your veins at all hours.

      Blue Collar/Labour jobs can be fit. Assuming it's not incredibly taxing - you will be in zone 2 cardio all day. Couple this with a relatively clean diet and a couple lifting sessions per week = a very easy and sustainable way to get and remain shredded.

            AI and ML/inference are hot but the eggheads on IST suggest that if you don't have a PhD in it, you won't get hired.

      Also a SWE and just graduated, I make good money and am fully WFH. It rocks but I would say the same for almost all WFH jobs, generally anything in tech is pretty great for work life balance, especially if it's WFH. I literally couldn't ask for a better job.

      However, it seems people are pouring into the profession so I'm debating picking up a trade since literally nobody is doing them anymore and it's very straight forward to start a business doing it. My gf and I needed someone to do drywall and there's virtually nobody locally available. I'm expecting the trades to continue to die off even more with all of the shilling CS nerds do on tiktok and youtube and shit.

      Not him but it doesn't mater which specialization you pick, both end up being difficult for different reasons. Do what you're interested in. Although I'm pretty sure ML will pay you more.

    i am studying electrical engineering. honestly you find the least IST people here.. pretty much just asians and PC gaming autists. I was lucky to be a secret autist where people think im normal and cool in society because I took advice from IST on maxxing social/physical gains.

    But it beats being a fucking manual laborer, that shit was ass.. did it for8 years total. Super IST in the sense its masculine and hard, but you basically just get fat because you drink alot of alcohol and hang out with ex cons or losers.
