The resident reactionary
I’m looking for a traineeship as it’s my last semester in university and I want to finish in time. 90% of the offers are for marketing and social media stuff. The last thing I’d ever want to do as a traineeship is sit behind a laptop and promote some company online. And marketing, what the hell is that even? What does a marketer do? Why are jobs nowadays all virtual bullshit? Why can’t I do some real physical-ass job and get my internship done with that? I don’t understand the new world where everyone sits at their desk, slurps on their coffee and makes Instagram stories, showing off their amazing workspace environment. What the fuck are these people actually doing?? Bring the old jobs back!
Waitasec - what are you actually studying? Because I wonder if any university's gonna aim at those "real physical-ass jobs" in the first place. Okay, there probably are some - archeology, medicine - but aren't people usually studying precisely because they want to sit in a cozy office, slurp on their coffee and make Instagram stories, as far from real physical-ass jobs as possible?
(I don't disagree with your sentiment, though)
(also I really appreciate you put the hyphen in the right place; it'd be really confusing to see this craving for real, physical ass-jobs, though de gustibus non disputandum est, as usual...)
