Yes. My plan is to wage & save till I make it. I have a pension. Dunno if social security will be around when I retire. But I am saving into 401k & IRA, and I should have 100% my income from my investments/pension by the time I am 68 or 69.

>till almost 70
Fuck that shit. I'm getting out by 60. I'm 37. I have 5 pension years. I only need 20 more and then then thats 25 years. Current contract: you get $205/month for every year of service. So right now that would be $5125 a month. Not bad. I have about $5k vested in my 401k. I'm too lazy to do the math on it but I but in $5 an hour and my employer kicks in a buck per hour. So it should be pretty healthy in 20 years. The plan is so up my contribution by a buck every year when my annual raise kicks in until I max out at $12 an hour.
Between my pension, 401k and SS (if it exists, who the fuck knows) I should be able to live comfortable in a low-tax state like AZ or WA. Right now I like the idea of splitting my time between two states and being a snowbird, but who knows if my body will be up for that at 65, 70 years old.

Not really. I had a ton of good guidance by reading the posts of students and pharmacists at the Student Doctor Network forum. The best advice that I got and followed is to work and gain as much experience as possible while in school. Learn how to network and never burn bridges because pharmacy is a small world.
Also learn how to manage your money and invest ASAP. Most of my pharmacy friends from school are still heavily in debt with a negligible amount of savings.

Dumb blogpost if anyone wants to read it. Just quit my job before I got called back to the office from corona. $12.70 USD/hour after tax in Canada doing lab work. I wasted 30k on a shitty STEM meme degree (chemistry) that can't land me a job in Canada, and I have no marketable skills. The despair really only sank in after I started looking at the lifestyles of my coworkers. They were basically in their mid 30's with pHD's and were taking home just as much as I was after rent, gas, food, and taxes. They were basically done in life, no futher advancement, no possibility of getting a new job because of lack of experience and a shitty job market, and they knew it deep down inside. I just had to quit because I knew if I stayed complacent I'd be just like them in 10 years, my life would be basically over with nothing to show for it. Now I'm learning to code, as much of a meme that is, I don't see any other way out for me.

I'm a dumb retard so I only have a bachelors and my grades are too low for anything more than that. But yeah when someone spends the entirety of their youth in science academia and can only make less than half the starting of someone who studied computer science for 4 years it just makes me sad. I fell for the science meme, it honestly feels really bad and eats away at me every day. I often like to imagine what my life would be like had I just chosen to study cs instead of a hard science. I occasionally look up my high school classmates on normiebook and see the ones that chose to go down that route are making a nice solid 6 figs and have vibrant normie lives throwing money around like its nothing. If I wasn't so poor and money minded I'd probably cope by drinking or doing drugs.

God fuck, it was literally that. I know there are more of us for sure since literally NOBODY else I know of in the same program in my graduating year found a job (U of T). The only reason why I got my job was because they needed fresh grads so that they could apply for an ECO grant that pays for up to half of my salary. I swear I'll never do a lab job ever again. The piddling amount of money they gave me was definitely not worth the long term damage I probably did to myself inhaling chemicals and cellulose nanocrystals. If CS doesn't give me a way out of making 17 CAD/hour after tax, I'm done with life.

I can pretty much promise you, like 1% of the country actually works. I don't know about being employed, but as far as doing actual work goes, almost no one is doing a god damn thing. I am absolutely busy as all fuck. I get little windows like this to come and quickly scan 4chan. I sometimes I even can take a shit undisturbed...sometimes. But every day I am getting about 20 texts an hour from different people all throughout the work day. I have checked my messages around 4:30 PM and had over 110 text messages.

I have legitimately told people I don't know how to text in hopes they leave me the fuck alone. All these people, all day, just texting the day away. Practically no one is doing a fucking thing. They can't be. I'm not a celebrity, my work is about as introverted and non-people related as it comes, these are not work related text messages. I have to turn down at least one invitation to dinner and drinks a night, every single night of the week, except on the weekends when I allot myself 1 night every other week to go out. This also means the vast majority of "workers" are abusing the living shit out of alcohol.

It's like a Hell on Earth. About the only people I know that I don't hear from throughout the day and the only people not looking to get completely smashed on a nightly basis are the physicians and people running their own businesses. Everyone else? I'm assuming they do nothing all day, they drink every night, they stumble into work the next day to do nothing, and then they come home and do it all over again making sure to blow as much of their money as possible so they can continue the same routine until cancer, dementia, or heart disease takes them.

I got fired because one day this fat cunt coworker tried to boss me around and I lost my shit, now i'm not far off being a NEET (I do study). At the time I felt so much better having no work, and I am not going to lie it is comfy just chilling and getting government gibs (thanks corona) but now I am starting to want to work again. Trying to get into military but I bet when I start working again it won't be long until I miss the days when I didn't have to work. Can't win. I just wanted a job that didn't take up 5 of my 7 days of the week.

Depends on how much you know about computers. If you're not comfortable editing your registry, then you might get some helpdesk work, which would be asking them to reboot the machine and kick it up to L2s like me.
A+ is two tests and for general IT work, but if you have a lot of dosh and brains, skip Sec+ and get your GSEC. You can either get the SANS training for $7,800 or challenge it with me for $1,800. If that's too much, Sec+ had a YouTube series by Professor Messer.

Hello leaf frens. I too studied Chemistry. Was gonna go for my PhD but backed out last minute. Science really seems like a very difficult road if not dead end in Canada. I did very well in my undergrad but wasn't convinced it was worth it.

I graduated in 2017, travelled that summer and couldnt find a job for ~8 months. Luckily I was able to survive by trading shitcoins all day during the 2017 bull run. Anyway I eventually gave up looking for work and started to teach myself to code. I got an unrelated job managing a day camp the Summer of 2018 and basically self taught full time at the end of 2018 until march 2019. I applied to jobs for only a single weekend and got 3 Interviews and 2 job offers. Both were intern type jobs, but after 8 months as an intern I was turned to full time salary at 70k with 3 weeks + 3 days vacation, fully remote work.

The comparison between finding work in Software and Science is absolutely mind blowing. When I was trying to find chemistry work I applied to soooo many places that I know I could do the job in my sleep, I had 4 research placements, good grades, had custom reviewed cover letters and resumes, etc and would get rejected over and over. I applied for dev jobs basically knowing nothing with no effort and got 3 interviews. I'm letting you Canadian anons know it can be done so don't give up or lose motivation.

If it means anything I miss the chemistry life to some degree. I really did have a deeper passion for chemistry and science and was considering going back to grad school. Deep down I know it'd be a mistake because the economics do not make any sense. I'd come out of school further behind than when I entered. Also most chem jobs seemed like they would be really shitty; not like doing work in school at all, but I guess I can't shake the feelings of nostalgia.

Anyway end of rant. You anons can switch if you want. If you want any advice I can try to provide
