it's funny because "why would you work part-time if you can get a full-time job" but I simply prefer less wholistic forms of self destruction (read "I'd like to have energy for things other than taking a shower and falling into bed")

"oh that sounds chill and is payed ok! but shit I'm not desperate enough yet to act like I enjoy Active Directory"

from my very limited experience, Windows server stuff is weird because it feels like googling "how do I edit a template in Word" and the answers look exactly the same, like there are screenshots with circled bits and things like "click the start menu thingie. now type "group something something". it will bring up the group something something which is different from the group-this-that". and both are desperately needed because everything looks the same.

Naww :s cute person who said they liked my resume so much that they'd fit me in even though they were already pretty much done with interviews now wrote that actually no, she couldn't convince her colleagues to delay their decision. But that was such a cute interaction! I'm really happy about that somehow.

@maunzi Why would anyone work full-time if it's possible for them to work less??

job search 

@maunzi I found out that not all „full time“ positions are really necessarily full-time. Because for some reason part-time starts at <30h. o.o So if they’re not being completely stubborn one might negotiate 30h/75%.

@schokopflaster 30h is too much though :o 25 is ok, better 20 (but 20 is kinda at the low end of "enough money" in many of them) (gosh it is absolutely absurd that I can get ok money out of 20-25h at usual work hours as a beginner in IT, while my social worker friends kinda need the nightshift money) (like have you seen humans) (they are not less complicated than computers)

@maunzi I feel all of that very much ^^‘

@schokopflaster :) also actually 30 is part time here, like full time has a defined number of hrs in the Kollektivvertrag (often 38.5 in the jobs I'm looking at) and 30 is less than that so it shows up in all my part time searches.
