Maybe I will enjoy this playlist a little more now since it is playing on my headphones and there is no environmental noise, unlike before when I was playing it on the Google Home Mini and the sound waves were competing with the noise my neighbors were making in the apartment above me.
Been writing a great deal in my Notion.so journal. Earlier (about a half hour ago) I wrote (at length) about the pros/cons of this concentration vs that concentration for the AA degree. The “gist” of what the writing was about was; “what are the most marketable skills to have after graduation from college?” When I say “marketable”, I mean JOB market. I gotta say, I spent a good 5 minutes thinking aloud on what job I could possibly even apply for should I decide to make philosophy my concentration. Though, that is a concentration I am looking at. More realistically, I am looking at:
- (advanced) writing
- cultural anthropology
I broke it down like this – employers (in America, in 2019) are essentially looking for these traits in an employee:
- can persevere
Suffice it to say, to go into a field like law, medicine, psychotherapy, chemical engineering, etc. then I would DEFINITELY have to graduate in one of those fields in order to even consider an occupation in that field. But I am not going to apply to one of those jobs.
So, there are a few (more than a few) types of positions that are applicable to the concentrations I mentioned in the first list, but they are VERY broad. I wouldn't even look into specific detail until later.
Might I say, LinkedIn can k.i.s.s. m.y. a.s.s. They rely on FAR too much personal information in order to only spam your inbox with offers from employers who haven't even bothered to look at your credentials. Another thing (and this is just me) is that every time I create a LinkedIn profile, something bad happens to me. Strange thing. Besides, I am more than capable of finding a GOOD job without some social network spoon-feeding me recruiters in order to “link” up and get a dead end corporate job where all the co-workers don't give a fuck about one another. Think small, I say ;)
Also, the coffee is delicious, the Classic Punk playlist is a total jam, and I am wide awake now.
