Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Lookin' for a jerb

I am looking for a job for the summer in Portland. Any tips?

I have only worked a couple jobs before. This semester I've been an SU cleaner, where I clean the Student Union at my college for 2 hours once a week, and last summer I was a ride operator at an amusement park.

I've been scouring craigslist and that sort of thing, but a lot of those jobs require experience that I don't have.

    If you have 50 - 75% of the things a job asks for, it is worth applying for. Don't let not having everything on the add stop you from applying. If a job is asking for five years or less of experience, you can probably try applying with zero experience if you fit most of the other requirements

    Oh, and 75-90% of jobs are not filled from people responding to adds, so don't spend all your time in your job search on want adds and the like. Network your ass off. People get hired through connections a lot.

    Haha, I'm about to come job hunt in Portland as well! (Full time, normal job though.) Good luck to you! PM me sometime and I'll make a note to pass on job postings I come across that you might be qualified for once I start in full force.

    "Big Damn Heroes, Sir."
    "Ain't we just."
