I am not a troll idiot.

I hate sales. If i liked sales i could go do telemarketing.

There are no jobs where you do nothing all day and watch netflix. Funny.

Ive worked very hard for 13 years in many offices and a bank. 17 years if you include working on a farm cleaning houses, mowing lawns, and working as a busboy until I was 18.

I also have a degree in business administration with high honours which was very difficult. I slept 4 hours a night and went to school and studied the other 20 hours a day.

Im 31 now I dont have time to spend another 4 to 10 years in school.

Truck driving isnt as great as you think. I had an idiot friend who dropped out of business school to be a truck driver. Now he is a busboy. I also dont like driving big trucks. I tried driving a box truck once, never again.

You don't give yourself much choice when you ruled almost every job out!

Where abouts do you live? That could play a role as to why your not doing well with your BA.

Your feeling discouraged because your BA hasn't gotten you where you wanted/hoped to be, but don't give up on yourself!

If you don't wanna go back to school. Then your gonna have to start at the bottom. Then work your way up. Which could be years or never before you reach that 50k your asking for.

Here's my story: I worked like a dog at a meat factory straight out of high school for 13 years. I got Sick of it. Quit last month. Job search like it was my full time job! (Felt depressed and useless during the process) 31 days after i quit. 5am, i got an email and I'm grateful I landed a job in the trade I wanted with zero experience.
Now I expect to be WORKED like a dog for 3 months.
But my skin is tough and after those 3 months. I'll be up there again.

He said that "require no job connections." Government jobs tend to be very insular and connected.
I don't think that's the case anymore. IIRC, there's no referral program and everyone has to go through the same vetting process of examinations and interviews.

web dev requires 3 month bootcamp crash course, with your university background, you should be able to land a job no problem.

50k+ out the door.

Digital Marketer, you can get paid 50,000 -100,000 a year. Or run your own agency.

This consists of doing facebook ads, google ads, twitter ads, instagram/twitter/facebook page posts, collaborating with influencers. Online marketing is in demand, and most companies lack it. And decent amount allow to work from home.
You don't need a degree for this, I mean applied to 3 places that offered between 55 000 to 80 000, and asked for a business degree, but my resume and experience was a enough. I have no degree.
Average person with a business degree doesn't even know much about social/online marketing, so its kind of pointless to ask. Facebook pixel was released i think 2 years ago, so yeah.

What I think is still common is, they go through this process because they have to but they already know who they're going to hire. Often someone internally, that they all already know. And they interview him/her too because of the process, but people know this person is going to get it.

Kind of sucks for everyone else who had to travel there to interview.

This is requirement at all big organizations/companies . It's good since we sometimes have someone particular in mind but we've gone with a surprise high caliber candidate from external

But it's very hard to hire qualified workers now with experience so we do recruitment abroad now as well

No kidding?!
I know an acquaintance who does this. I googled, the salary is 50K something.
Those are easy stuff. Maybe I could do that in my parttime? perfect. It will be satuated soon though as soon as people realize the potential of it. as it's easy stuff.

wait.. why are we giving all these job suggestions before we even ask what the guy wants?

Of the full list, what is truly your passion? With your BBA.. why do you have Musician as your career choice? do you play an instrument?
Let me tell you something.. even if you become a 200k/year programmer.. if you hate programming... you will hate your job.. work will be miserable.
If you make 75k a year doing something you love.. life will be walk in the park.

The next high demand job will most likely be in A.I. programming... automation... in the banking sector and consultant firms, they are hiring alot of programmers for automation. (thanks to our minimum wage). The higher the minimum wage, the faster the growth.

In Canada, the marijuana industry is growing rapidly.. you can go there.

You can become a bitcoin miner ... just buy lots of hardware to do it.. not sure how long that will last before you don't make much money.

but first and foremost.. what is your PASSION?
without that answered... no one can help you

Works amazing if you are female and ready to show a little bit. Provide fan service to dorks and teenagers.

I often watch streams, and it's sickening how many followers some female streamers have with no talent and no content. Yet donations and viewers are pouring in because they look half decent and show cleavage.

Seriously, if I had no job, I think the technology already exists where you can change your appearance to whatever you want (hot female) and voice changer. I'd definitely do more research into that.
