Shitty IT that no one wants to do and they can find anyone for, unfortunately.

Service desk / help desk / desktop support. Unfortunately I have not found a company that is in a position to teach me more skills / give me hands-on experience so I'm sort of SOL


Half my IT career was based on my superior boolean/google searching abilities. But if you have the opportunity, get the fuck out of it.

Low level IT guys are still in demand, use a head hunter like silver search or staffmark to find a job in IT in NYC. You could prob find a temp job like helping out with a Windows 7 deployment or something.


Turnover is bullshit. Get higher up, maybe start doing admin/db work, more job security. Low-level IT is cool if you're 17 and 4/20 everyday, not if you're 24 and looking for a career.

Its not that easy especially in large companies. I've worked at both large and small. Some companies especially financial get so large, you might get stuck in a group that only unlocks and resets passwords for users all day long and you're pretty much stuck there. I've seen people stuck at these low level helpdesk roles cus they're like 50 and they cant leave because they give up a high salary(wall street bonuses) for what they do and dont have the experience to go elsewhere.

This is exactly what I do not want.

I want to get into DB/Oracle shit.

I've applied to probably 20+places (+cover letters) now. So far have not heard back from anyone but it has only been this week.

I live about 5.5 hours away from the city.
I'd rather drive than fly.

I'm thinking of staying around White Plains or whatever and taking the train to the city i.e. I don't wanna park my car in the city.

Are there any train stations that has cheap (or free) and safe parking?

Paying 100 bucks for overnight parking is fucking ridiculous in NYC.


not free to park at white plains train station. in fact, pretty expensive.

I am going to NYC in Jan with my boyfriend, and we were trying to figure out where to stay. We just booked the Soho Grand......we are hoping it's a good location and hotel. Does anyone have any great hotels they think would be better? We are also looking for some cool bars to hit up as well.

Visiting NY in early to mid December, will I be needing a coat? Or would Parka + thermals and layers suffice?

lol.
you need a park+thermals and layers.
what the fuck is the difference anyways?
Parka=Coat.
Unless you are talking a heavy ass fishtail.
i'd still wear thermals under that thing.
and the weather changes in December all the time, it can be storming and -5 or 25 degrees.

Heading to NY for a couple of weeks at the beginning of December with family and friends. A few of us want to check out some local live music whilst we're there, does anyone have any recommendations other than the Bowery Ballroom and The Bitter End?

Also, any comments or tips about those two places would be greatly appreciated.

If you like Jazz (which you should, because it's awesome) there are tons of venues here in the city that have live jazz daily.

http://searchandrestore.com/


Check that site out, while you're here. It's a calendar of events going on at a bunch of different jazz venues.

Other non-jazz stuff:
The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. Check their site for shows.
Webster Hall. More of a dance scene but occasionally has other types of music.

For really local stuff there's places like Sullivan Hall that usually has live events on the weekends I think?

For Japanese book stores, there are two that are pretty close to each other you should check out. Kinokuniya by Bryant Park is really cool...Lots of magazines (including Lightning, Free&Easy, etc.), books, music, manga, etc. as well as stationary/pens/pencils and cool toys...and there's a little cafe on the top floor. Then a few blocks away on 45th street (off 6th Ave I believe) there's Book Off...which I like because there's a lot of used books, magazines, and music and video games...I've found some amazing and some hard to find music for dirt cheap. A huge manga section in the basement with a dollar section of used manga, if you're into that. They have American stuff as well as Japanese.

Hope I helped..

I'm going to be in NYC for the first two weeks of Feb. Do the high-end clothing stores stay well-stocked all year round, or will the selection be shitty at that point? Will S/S 11 stock be on shelves? I'm mainly interested in picking up some Dior and Balenciaga jeans, but it'd be nice to get some other pieces, too.
