Episode 142 – Getting Jobbed

job-changeThis week’s episode was recorded in a hotel room at Die Laughing.  We sat down with Josh Nite,  who has joined us before. Previously, we had talked about his now former job with Kingdom of Loathing.  This time, we talked with him about job transitions as all four of us have made some major career changes in the last few months.   Somehow, we manage to tie it back to atheism and the idea that you need to make the most of the life you have.  Josh also asks us three questions.  So he still owes us two.  We’ll probably have to invite him back.

    This episode really resonated with me! I’ve been in my current job for over three years, but I was at my previous job for over 7 and the last 2 were pretty miserable. My depression was similar to what Nick and Josh described, and the lifting of it was a great relief. I am glad all of you have made positive changes, and best of luck to Tim in writing full-time.

  2. Two months ago, I left my job of 6 years to work at a new company because I wasn’t feeling challened anymore and my old company had nothing to offer for moving up. It was a pretty pathetic company with no benefits of any kind and barely any vacation. I have to point oit that i was given 13 days of vacation a year but i had to use those vacation days to get paid for national holidays even after being there 6 years. Terrible company. In any case, I came across a job at a different company in January and was hired on at the end of February. Its now May and its been so weird working for a company that really cares about their employees and its business practices. My life has been turned upside down of course. I now have a 2 hour round trip commute and I hardly ever see my husband during the week but having a job that makes me feel appreciated verbally and financially makes a world of difference. I was so depressed at my last job. Constantly working harder to try and earn a pay raise without ever getting anything in return. It made me feel so worthless and like my job was didnt matter. I eventually got a raise 1 month before i left and it was a mere $.75/ hour wgich felt more like a slap in the face than a raise after 6 years of hard work. Anyway. I just wanted to comment and say that I am so happy with my new job and happy for all of you as well! We have jobs to support the life we want to live..not the other way around. You should definitely at least like how you’re spending the time to earn the money.
