I got a job...as a techie...

I got a job...as a techie...

Postby TheTechDoc » Tue Oct 24, 2017 5:54 am

Hey guys, so I've been meaning to post this for a few weeks now but basically I got a job! I'm 21 and have been struggling to find a job since January when CEX canned me and it took a solid year before that to find CEX! Welp basically I'm working for a company called bookatech which is in turn owned by RT Edwards and we exclusively service both RT Edward stock and customer stock sent in from RT Edwards customers , so all day long I chill in a mad tech cave working on phones , tablets, desktops, laptops , game consoles etc, my boss has already given me so much ex stock ( including a 360 slim, a $150 TPlink router etc) and basically I'm in heaven!

No real point to this post, just exciting and wanted to tell my TIZ peeps :lol:

Good for you! Being without a job is so stressful.

I agree with what WARE-WOLF said, too. If you like your job, it's not so much like work at all. :)

Good luck with your new job, may it last many moons.
I remember my grandfather had an award on his living room wall from his employer, Endicott Johnson.
EJ has been defunct for many years
They were a large footwear manufacturer in our area.
The award was for 50 years of service with the company.
FIFTY YEARS!
I wonder how many people have been able to stay with the same employer even over 20 years in this day and age?
The world isn't the same place as it used to be.
It's so hard to find a good job and one you enjoy.
Economic downturns have changed everything.
