    Sahib, be clear on the goals you have. Stay in tune with them - be honest with yourself when you have to make changes. The senior folks in the room can tell you that if you're not grounded in your goals and in tune with them, when adult life fully kicks in, you can end up with a ton of unhappiness to go along with a ton of responsibility.

    There are opportunities that still value the type of attitude of working to achieve things on their own merit, instead of the seemingly pervasive "sense of entitlement because i exist" attitude of some of your peers. That attitude is the most nauseating thing i see on a daily basis from young people today.

    If you need anymore motivation, here's some: you're a person of color in 'Murica. The system is STILL designed to exploit and subjugate you. Therefore, you've got to grab it by the throat, figure out how it works and manipulate it to take care of you and your family.

    To clear things up a bit. I wasn't trying to discourage him. I was pointing out that he may need to take a different route to where he wants to get to. Nothing more.

    I have a question , well multiple questions. How long did you have to wait to get a job? Did you feel discouraged after going though multiple interviews and not getting the position? If not what helped you get through it?
    To add to my previous points.

    Interviews are deceptive for a reason. You shouldn't assume anything.

    I'm not a fan of group interviews like you went to where there were lots of people applying for whatever amount of positions. I'd personally approach companies instead of doing that again.

    Multistage interviews are common. The key thing is practice. Don't get discouraged with not making it through to the next round. Try to think what happened with it, learn and try again.

    The learning part is the key factor. If need be find someone to practice interviewing with.

    If you don't learn from the experience then you're doing something wrong and won't move forward.

    Don't worry about when, concentrate on the what and where.

    Never said you were discouraging him. My comments were building on the premise you just stated. So if he has to go a different route, he's got to be grounded in his goals as it's easy to get lost in the sauce of things.

    YouTube has some resources on interview tips, if Sahib is a visual learner. He can also tape his own practice interviews too, as sometimes nothing beats the instant visual feedback a video can provide. The only other thing i'd add here is if you walk in not confident, you won't have a chance.

    Main point would be not to let your guard down. Really good interviewers can make you feel too comfortable and it only takes a small thing to trip you up. Probably what that last guy did with you.

    If you haven't got any feedback yet ask for some. You can't change what you don't know. Of course every interview situation is different but any feedback is better than none.

    The new phone itch has not gone away. I'd like to get the G5 or OP3 at the end of the year, but the OP3 lacks a SD slot (really wish it was a dual SIM hybrid) and there are still lingering build quality concerns about the G5.

    Man, it is hard to find something good these days...

    Still, i do like my Maxx. I was tempted to get a Nextbit Robin, but I'll pass. It's a nice phone and while the hardware internals are somewhat similar between the Maxx and Robin, i don't see it as a clear upgrade.

    I really did enjoy my G4 experience and am tempted to get another one...i think LG is still very underrated, but are shooting themselves in the foot with some of their choices...
