Any tips for escaping NEEThood? I have absolutely no contempt for those engaged in it, but I've decided it's no longer for me. I'm currently working on getting enrolled in vocational rehab for autism, depression and anxiety because disabilities qualify you for aid in that way.

 No.266512

1. Pull up your bootstraps
2. Apply for low tier jobs
3. Lie on your resume
4. Lie at the job interview
5. Get a good haircut, dress shirt, dress pants and dress shoes
6. Look as normal as possible

Simple as

Yeah, I'm hoping to get something part time. Slap it together with Medicaid, get a shitty trailer, build a life for myself. I don't ever expect to be a normie but I figure I can at least improve my circumstances.

Then you can become a normal in a year or two if you start right now. If you wait 2 or 3 years it'll be too late. If you're going to lie you're doing it at your own risk, they always find out.

It's all about your age. You can have a PhD but it doesn't matter if you're over 30 without any work experience. That's why I tell young wizards to get out of neetdom as soon as they can because once they get older they are FUCKED.

If you are still in ok shape there is the man's backup plan of labor.

succubi have prostitution and men have physical labor. Whenever times get tough, as long as your body holds up you can get money and pay the bills with your genders version of using your body for money.
Just wish that labor payed as well as being a whore. Payed sex is super overvalued if you ask me.

I bullshitted the hiring managers at my last two stores without any difficulty. At low-tier jobs nobody cares enough to actually verify things

OP you should start delivering pizza. Get a car and then pick the nicest area within driving distance, preferably an area with tourists. Either pick a fancy pizza store, or a cheap pizza store that doesn't make its own dough. You'll make a lot because of tips while working few hours, and even if you're completely socially retarded most of the tips are pre-tips paid with a card so you'll do good still

Bro the only way for me to escape neetdom is to move out, and I have cash saved from crypto but guess what? No apartments will accept my applications without a job AND credit history. I tried buying land too but guess what? Anything livable is like 10k per acre. PLUS you’re not allowed to build a tiny house and just live in it without septic or ellectric (costs like 50k to add). Most zoning and deed restrictions actually ban smal houses outright with minimum sq footage. Plus there are gay permits that cost you like 10k just to be allowed to build. There’s literally no escape. Society is rigged against people like us. It’s so messed up.

I found that mid twenties is the crucial point when it's basically do or die. It's like you get branded with the word "unemployable" after that and doors close for you. Of course if you have adequate social skills or good looks then anything is possible.

Lying works just fine. It depends how you go about doing it and your skill level with bullshitting.
The trick is not biting off more than you can chew.
For example, I'm over thirty and used my NEETbux to purchase a fake Bachelor's Degree in IT. I never graduated HS. Of course this diploma will never be used to apply for jobs in the IT sector because they would easily figure out that I'm a fake, however since I understand more about technology than 95% of the population I can easily bullshit during a completely unrelated job interview about how "I thought it was what I wanted to do but it turns out that IT just wasn't for me XD"

Basically if you set up a role ahead of time and you play it out normalfags shouldn't be able to tell, see >>266512

OP as long as you keep making small steps for a better life, the better life will come to you.
People here are gonna lie and tear you down and say that I'm wrong, but they have no idea what they are talking about and don't know shit.

You're young. Age has very little impact on you taking steps towards a better life. But, you are young and at a good point in life to turn your life around.
I'm 30 and started going back to school when I was 27. And now, I actually have a better quality of life than I did when I was 27. My only regret is not starting sooner. I haven't even graduated yet, but my life is already so much more promising than it was when I was 23, 24, so on and so on.

I still have a year left and so afraid to get a job, I had an interview and was babbling like an idiot parrot.

Join the military. Free housing/food, they will pay you to go to college afterwards. It's probably the best option if you're American and poor. The money isn't that bad when you factor in the GI bill benefits. Some of the job training is even useful if you don't get a crappy job.

There needs to be a guide (preferably in plain-text form) for long-term NEETs on how to find a job. Why is there a guide on how to get autismbux but not one to actually find work? Makes no sense.

Nature vs nurture ruins you at a younger age to make you the older age that's ready to work far too late. If disturbed by society you can't just be a normalfaggot and jump into it. Also there are felons that get jobs in their 40s after getting out of jail, what normalfaggots want is an excuse for laziness due to (((christfaggot))) ethics and there is not good excuse as society is immune to honesty. Allergic to it rather.

>honestly mentally ill, give checks

That's a no.
>honestly over mental illness now, give job
A larger no from that as they expect you to get the checks if really 'that ill' and it does not happen.

It's a broken system, utterly.

>>266916
>crypto spammer
>implying easy free money
Eventually I'm gonna lose it if I keep seeing this shit on every corner of the Internet.

Anyway, you can break the law and if in a remote area they'd not check it out. If you bought land and it's not a flood zone and has trees/bushes blocking a view you'd be able to at least have a place to be where not trespassing.

>>266952
They have a retard quota due to feeling sorry for them just like with spics, niggers, succubi, elderly, felons, etc. It's 'their excuse'. They let them in due to this.

>>276730
Abrahamic fascist ethics want people to go to jail to be punished for not working as leeches guilty of theft. Not having a work history makes you gyuilty of tresspassing, loitering, and theft, and illegal panhandling, and drug abuse, and prostitution, and etc as far as they are concerned and want to see that jail-time record as your resume. Your excuses. If hiding something then they won't expect you to show up for work or to keep selling drugs or your asshole outside of the legal world, that's how normalfaggots think. Normalfaggots have no need to create such a guide, they imply you should be in jail by not having one for people that become unemployable.

Also even normal people have to put out literal hundreds of applications for one interview. A hermit dweeb type, robot, whatever you may call one, will need to be veeeeery lucky to win in that sort of situation. you need like 20 tries, that's way too many applications for a small area if you have no car due to having no assets of which of course make a paradox. If homeless and looking you become too ugly to work to them from bad clothes and lack of hygiene and even if not the stress would cancel out your ability to succeed, blatantly it would, of which is why people stay on the streets in and out of jail when bums.

>>276806
Yes they're being retards but imageboards are full of such spazzes, we're full of stress due to such a bullshit society and it puts us all, not that I am them/him, on attack mode online as society needs to be accused constantly from our perspective.

>>276815
The reddit neet sub banned literal complaining and also check it's archive, over 50 percent of all threads are automatically pruned on that sub. It died a few years ago.

And stop this hatred for 'fake dweebs'. You don't know how people's lives are. Sudden domestic issues could have happened to make them desperate enough to leave their homes but might live in such a bad area that homelessness isn't viable.

But yeah, they forced that mindset, check the archives that catch deleted posts there if you do not believe me. The creator of that sub isn't even there anymore and also ignores you if you try to talk to him about what it became.

>checks hikikomori

Huh, not all red but blue. Suprising. I guess they're not that dead after all, though I doubt getting normalfaggot positivity advice about faking a resume will actually work for someone that's going to be worse than the average worker that actually needs to be honest about needing to be trained. That makes you unemployable, blatantly, and in prison they give you training. That's the joke. They reward bad behavior.

 No.278108

Most shitty low tier jobs will take anyone who shows up and doesn't look too fucked up. Make up some volunteer experiences or other fake low tier jobs for fake companies. Then have a small gap in your resume. You can explain that you don't have the references for the companies you worked at because they were small businesses that went under because of the pandemic. And that it's been a while ago because you had to take care of your sick relative or some shit. There are also businesses online that provide fake references you can tailor too. But honestly they probably won't care that much. Just show up and don't immediately sperg out. Good luck anon.

 No.278134

>>278108
Even the worst companies to work at have minimum standards. They won't hire mentally ill people with extreme anxiety or autism. Employers are averse to risky hiring practices and will see through your attempt at acting "normal" pretty easily. Hence, one of the benefits of going to vocational rehab is they can present you as a charity case and convince an otherwise unwilling employer to give you a chance through disability quotas.
