Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

      Re: What is your dream job?

      1. Did 4 years of 2 completely different majors, Agronomy (Biochemistry) and Telecommunications...didn't like it, so I quit...I have always worked on ISPs (except here in the US) and I've always enjoyed it, so I guess I'd be happy with being Manager of Customer Services or Training.

      2. Unfortunately I haven't figured out what's my thing yet...hehehe...I like a little bit of everything, but I guess my dream job would be one that would allow me to live in different countries from time to time...just like what I'm doing now (not exactly the right job, but it is taking me to different places in the world).

          I wish someone would pay me to procrastinate. That would be a dream job. And I think I'd be very good at it.

              Same here. I call it my syndrome.

                    An artist is not feasible because it is not practical in this modern day. You get to live on an income of rocks and leaves and what's the point? I would have to sell work to survive. If I go into illustration there is no point anyway, almost everything is done by computers, so the demand for that skill that was by the hand that required talent is no more for the most part.

                    A professor is not feasible because it is a saturated market. I only have to remember to my days at UCLA when I saw all these mid 30s people clogged in the history, econ and poli sci departments waiting for jobs and working as TAs waiting for one of those old white haired half dead professors with tenure to die with one leg in the coffin already. That's the thing. If I pursued a PhD., I'd have to end up teaching at some podunk university in say, Montana. Most of the professors I knew started off somewhere uncool and did not end up working in the places they wanted until well late into their life or some were just unlucky. There are people in line, you know. Either way, it's not worth the effort.

                      I don't think it's that bad Anon. It's true that it's nearly impossible to get a position at the major research universities right out of school, but there are positions elsewhere. I'm assuming it's similar with law schools... but with the most prestigious schools instead. At least in psych, I haven't seen TAs in their 30s waiting for positions. For us, either we need to have a very impressive publication history as grad students, land an awesome post-doc and do great work, or work somewhere else first. I'd be happy to go back to my undergrad institution when I'm done. It's more teaching oriented, but either I'll be content there and stay, or I'll get some more research under my belt, get a nice grant, and transfer out. That's my plan.

                      Anyway, my dream job is being a professor. I love to do research, but that's part of the deal in most places, so I'm not listing it seperately.

                      I don't have an unobtainable dream job. If I could incur, by some stroke of luck, a large sum of money, that would be fantastic, but I would continue to do the same thing and at most, just be less pressured to produce.
