And this is why i'm learning to code. Although if you think about it coding is also a desk job...🤔🤔🤔
@Danny DaVito, but in coding you get to actually create something
@Danny DaVito, yeah but its far from a mindless desk job. You dont have to be intelligent to make a spreadsheet you do to make a program
@Danny DaVito, i graduate in one semester!
@Aaron Leibowitz, I'll play devil's advocate here. I'm an auditor so I work with a lot of spreadsheets. I'm also a COBOL programmer, which doesn't mean much to most. But you do make a difference at a desk in auditing. I've helped uncover fraud in companies so..... Just looking over data can make a big difference
Honestly I have a desk job that pays pretty well but there are days I contemplate giving it up and taking a lower paying job just so I can move around and work with my hands more
@mtndewman9791, this, not too mention I feel so sluggish from not moving that my gym time is the only thing that makes me active during the week
@mtndewman9791, I started in HS learning CAD and Drafting. Spent four year learning the ins and outs. Graduated and said, "I hate desk jobs. Why did I do this?" Went to college for Network administration for just shy of two years. Said the same thing. I just started my HVAC the first of this year and I love it. I'm always on the go, always out and about, and always in some extreme weather. I make ends meet some days but I wouldn't trade my job.
@megamanx181x, have you tried getting a standing work station?
@Oujosh29, wouldn’t work with the way my cubicle is set up
@mtndewman9791, You can get certified for welding and contractor work through some community colleges, and that shjt pays well.
@mtndewman9791, try shipping and receiving, always something to do in that job
@mtndewman9791, become a welder. Go into skilled trade. Problem solved
@mtndewman9791, I’d love a job where I can actually help people or do something beneficial for society and still provide for my family.. desk jobs are a pair of golden handcuffs man
@mtndewman9791 don't do it I work construction the money's good but my body hurts I'm freezing in the winter and dripping sweat in the summer I'd love to sit in an office all day
I worked as a quality assurance specialist at a mental health clinic and got paid less than a McDonald's worker. I have a B.S..... as it happens... the situation was B.S. As well.
