The job is not dead. People just don't look at it properly. The job is like Microsoft Windows. Windows will never go away, but its ever evolving and always getting updated. There are always new versions coming out, sometimes they aren't even an improvement or there may be bugs, but yet the new computers still use them. Eventually the old versions become completely obsolete.

That is what has happened. The job is not dead but the old version is. Right now we are on Windows 10, (albeit, admittedly, an early version still riddled with bugs.) The problem is that people want to play Battlefield V on the highest settings on Windows XP. They are sitting there clicking install and not understanding why they are getting an error message. Its not compatible anymore and theres nothing we can do about it.

I loved Windows XP too, it was a great time on the job, but if I don't update my operating system, Im just gonna sit here frustrated.


Good luck to all on the next exam.

 To be honest, quite the opposite. For a long time I had a similar thought process, but then I started to try and not let things bother me that are out of my control. Definitely not easy. I can be as critical of the cons on this job as much as the next person. However, try to look at the pros, they do exist. Everything doesn't suck. That kind of negativity will eat away at you. Try and think positively. If you need someone to talk to, message me privately if you would like. I will listen. Stay safe.
