Fucking tired of $7.25/hr wageslavery.

What sort of a job can I hope to land with 2.5 years of experience working retail backrooms? I've got a BA, but its one of those useless meme degrees.

Should I go back to college? Is there anything I could study for 2 years and land a job with?

Not in my area. Still, I check those sites regularly. Its how I got my current job.

@Inmate
Best of luck with the military, user.

No. The question is, why aren't you working for a company that makes and sells games. You don't need a degree to do it yourself.

I mean seriously there are 3rd worlders on the freelance sites that make a higher USD rate doing design/development stuff than he OP does at his retail job.

lol so you're not happy with your game design degree, eh?

What skills did you learn in school? You probably know some basic programming at least, right? What all did you have to study to get a game design degree?

What do you think led you to end up disliking the idea of getting a game design degree?

Stage hand, stage setup, lighting, rigging (climbing up tall things), all that event stuff if you're located in a populous area and have any liking of music or audio/visual. There's lots of room to move up as you gain experience. Requires some people skills so it's not really an industry filled with immigrants. Also somewhat strong body but you say backrooms so that should be no prob.
You just need an in like a friend that does that shit for a large company, get trained on cherry pickers, safety/fall prevention, join a union.
Work hard, long hours for big $ during busy times, relax the rest of the time

From his presence here and the image, you can assume he has a passion for Chinese cartoons and masturbation. Not sure if that can be translated into an income stream.

Get your forklift certification. Drivers can make about $25, and you already know how backroom stocking works.

If this guy kills himself then you'll win at life right? I know its just a saying. Getting tired of millennials saying this to everything.

@hairygrape
Yeah this user has it right, you can just do Web Design, Front End Dev, PHP, Java, freelance rigging...

are you in an area that has game testers?

Seriously, look up this guy Ben Brode, he was a tester, bought some Blizzard guys pizza, bam he is now a famous game dev of Hearthstone.

Just don't stall out or go be a nurse, you can make it if your parents aren't dead or faggots just live with them but all the while either learning new shit or doing jobs or making old dentists websites.

Definitely look into game testing and do a 'whoops did I leave my portfolio on the bosses desk, i'm sorry' before you are done.

Oh right I forgot, to answer your OP a good masters might aid you quite a bit.

Try Human-Computer Interaction for UX Design, try CS, MBA in MSIS to manage game programmers or IT or MFA - only if it teaches you good tech knowledge and the university is in a city with a vibrant tech scene and NETWORK like a motherfucker.

This is why I don't take anyone on this board seriously. The whole place is a bunch of neck beards and neets hoping to catch the next get rich quick scheme; meanwhile, they wasted their years in college on bullshit degrees and now unload pallets for a living while they meme about mgt and cryptocurrencies in their mandatory 15 min breaks.

Seriously, if you asshats put as much effort into actually building a skill set as you do into refreshing this page in search of the next get rich quick scheme, you'd actually have real careers and respectable incomes and shit.

Seems like the only ones who make real money around here are the ones who build affiliate pages for porn sites and some select hustlers on amazon/ebay/etsy. Let that be a lesson to the rest of you.
