Dear god,
Bless the wfh chads. I shall not seethe, even though I wear a mask at my desk for 8hrs a day and I have an engineering degree.
These threads have opened my eyes to the possibilities of a paid NEET lifestyle. I dream of it daily and I’m willing to study any skill set to achieve this dream. May the wfh chads and gibs NEETS remain in a restful state, free of effort or stress. May they climb up to leadership positions so that I can get hired and hangout with my dog at home all day.

I just finished the morning stand up phone conference and I got my boss' boss' boss' boss to chuckle so pretty sure I'm winning. Yesterday I got my annual performance evaluation back and just like many others, I got a glowing review for doing basically no work at all since July. Still planning on quitting at the earliest possible opportunity.

Plan for today: go to the store and buy more monster. Maybe read some documentation, then attend one more meeting in the afternoon. Other than that, probably just play some minecraft.

Im a TiG welder i dont work underwater. The submarines come in for full refits and when the pipes are cut out for various reasons we have to weld the pipes back in, in the engine rooms and reactor compartment etc.

I can make a good wage (~£3.5k a mth take home) but it still means being a wage cuck and a 30 minute commute etc. But I live in Cornwall so outside of work life is nice. hopefully I'll escape the dockyard one day.

You have to lower your initial expectations. Aim for GS-5 and 7 jobs (basically the only jobs you have a chance of getting unless you're already a govie). I used to work government HR, basically the way it works is you start at the bottom, then after a two years your probation period ends and you can't be fired without an act of congress. After one year you can apply to higher GS positions, which is the only way to get promoted. If you get what's called a ladder position (looks like GS-5/7/9/11) you get automatic promotions without having to apply anywhere, one per year. So even if you start out as a GS-5 making a pittance, in a few years you'll be well above median income and if you're really motivated and willing to move around you can easily hit GS-12, 13, 14 paygrades. And again, you're set for life by that point, you can't really be fired.

The hiring process also takes a lot of time: up to a year or more in some cases. So you have to be patient. Just make sure you tailor your resume to each position you're applying for and highlight any relevant experience you have with the same language used in the job description and eventually you'll get hired.

Copy/pasting from Wikipedia:
> The author contends that more than half of societal work is pointless, both large parts of some jobs and, as he describes, five types of entirely pointless jobs:
> * flunkies, who serve to make their superiors feel important, e.g., receptionists, administrative assistants, door attendants
> * goons, who oppose other goons hired by other companies, e.g., lobbyists, corporate lawyers, telemarketers, public relations specialists
> * duct tapers, who temporarily fix problems that could be fixed permanently, e.g., programmers repairing shoddy code, airline desk staff who calm passengers whose bags do not arrive
> * box tickers, who create the appearance that something useful is being done when it is not, e.g., survey administrators, in-house magazine journalists, corporate compliance officers
> * taskmasters, who manage—or create extra work for—those who do not need it, e.g., middle management, leadership professionals
I've read the original essay that the book was based on, and while I don't 100% agree with him claims (ex: flunkies do have value, it's just shitty work that no one actually wants to do), I do think there's a lot of truth to the claim that many jobs don't meaningfully improve the business or society in any way.

At least the way you describe it, that seems like it's on them. If they hire you as a contractor but don't give you anything to do, that's a failure of management.

Also look into copy writing, that's really comfy if you can write blog posts about your hobbies. Just learn a shit ton of buzzwords about SEO. SEO is great to get into because Google is so secretive nobody can actually prove if the work you've done is effective or not

Look into merchandising - you basically just re order product categories depending on what's performing best, suggest products to gift to influencers, use for email and social ads, etc. It's easy as fuck. Then you just do analysis of how the influencer gifting campaign went eg more product views, sales, etc. A lot of companies are hiring now because ecommerce has blown up thanks to the coof.

Was working from home doing nothing, because work slowed. It sucked, turns out I can't stand being too unproductive. Like a border collie, if I don't get enough stimulus, I just go fucking mental.

I'm lucky though, made a really good impression on my supervisors before covid, got good recs and I got moved into another role within the company at large. The role I think is going to be pretty easy, and consistent in the nature of its work, which is what I need right now. Less uncertainties. I'm now in a good workflow routine every day, staying just perpetually a little high (toking), and I feel less pessimistic about my time for self-development outside of work.

It feels like being a modern day version of the renaissance artisinal/mercantile class.
I can build my knowledge and skills safely away in my study all day, while the lower classes continue to wage and toil out in the covid infected world. Hell, even after covid is gone, I'll still probably work from home.
Nobody bothers me in person unless I want it, and I go out into the world when I decide I need to on my terms.
I've fucking made it lads.

Investing in myself, and it feels good.

Just close your eyes and click on it, it's better to bite the bullet rather than suffer through not knowing and letting your imagination run wild. Maybe before you do that figure out some good excuse for why you would miss the IM for so long. My favorite is "working on training and closed email to focus" or "reading documentation and close email to focus" since I have a couple bookmarked links about the importance of focusing and not getting distracted by notifications.

You understand how the warehouse operation works, yeah? With basic excel skills you can market yourself to your Ops managers and try to obtain a logistics position. I started out tracking our shipping damage rates and packing room efficiency and moved up from there. Inventory control is an option too. Basically there are a ton of warehouse Ops positions that don't require any knowledge beyond being trained on your internal systems. Make an effort to put yourself out there as smarter than the average drone. Suggest minor process improvements to your manager and get on the radar of your DC manager.

Take a loan, take time off work to go to a tradeschool or a college.
First thing to reconcile is deliberately deciding you alone are choosing to be a professional in something, and that means an obligation to practice that skill so long as you're in the profession.

With tradeschool, go for something constantly in need that doesn't require immediate proximity to others (CNC machinist, Electrician, Robot operator/tech). Avoid labor that doesn't require certifications, and avoid retail and dining.
Alternatively get a degree something like law, engineering, medicine (RN programs) while searching constantly for internships.
Maybe check in for jobs with your state (if US) as well.

Any time you need to reign your focus back in on academics, just think of the labor job you have now, it'll work as a great motivator. 100% serious too. Even with a degree in hand it will be challenging, but once you're in a role even an internship you've got skin in the game to keep working up.
Many of these jobs are going permanently to work-from-home; could you imagine that vs where you are right now? I'm making $100k chilling in my house all day working from the computer. Sorest part of my body is my ass. Not saying that to mock you but saying investing in yourself is fucking worth it. You will be the one asset you possess your entire life, and time invested in yourself will always have returns to you.
I had knuckle busting labor jobs before, I keep a grease soaked leather apron I wore for a gig hung up in sight of my work desk as a reminder of what my mind can provide for me if I use it.
