Overemployment in 2024

I have a fully remote position and I just received another offer for a fully remote position. Up until around 2023, until I got laid off at two of my three Js, I did overemployment. Now I'm down to 1J.

I'm considering doing overemployment again in 2024. But the question is... have they sophisticated their means of detecting OE since then?

      Just send resumes pussy. I found a coding job without experience or education 5 months ago. I do nothing 99% of the time, fully remote.
      And I've actually been thinking about becoming overemployed. How do I find a job that will be as chill as the one I have now?

        probably be as lucky as you were when you found your first job tbh lol. Sounds like you're an exception. How did you get your job and what technologies / programming languages do you know?

          I sent a shitton of resumes and I was about to finish getting a CCNA, so I put networking stuff on there and I think that helped. I didn't even have a technical interview, so that's awesome. I know JavaScript well enough and at work I mostly use C#, little bit of VB .NET for those 10+ year old apps and some Python. I'm still only starting and they're treating me like a very fragile egg. I've been learning for the Sec+ so I can then go into pentesting certs and go into cybersecurity. I work for an oil company.

            Are you remote? And how much are you making?

            Yes, I'm fully remote. I'm making very little, but in my Euro country there is a huge potential upside for devs who know what they're doing with pretty low taxes. Even 1 year of experience can raise my salary 50%, which will happen in 6 months. I will start looking for a new job next January.

            Not to get too personal but how much do you make per hour and where do you live? Is the company that you're working at a tech company? Maybe if they aren't, they saw you had broad knowledge and decided you'd be a good fit if they need help with anything programming or networking related

            I make very little in comparison to the average US Mickey D's worker and I live in East EU, but I'm the only foreigner in an American team and I work American hours, which is great, because I'm a night owl. I start at 1 pm and I can take care of anything before work. No overtime, I clock out at exactly 9 pm. The company is huge and we are just one small fish in a sea of coders and IT guys. My team mostly works on the stuff used internally by the finances team etc. I work for an oil company, so it's mostly CRUDs, but I have to admit I've learnt a lot about C# so far.

            That makes sense.

            Its basically impossible to find a six figure remote gig right now even with years of experience

            Damn, sounds like it really worked out for you and now that you got your foot in the door, you have a bright future. Hopefully things work out for me too by the time I graduate

            Keep sending resumes and you will make it. I think I sent over 1000 CVs. Also yeah, a CCNA will open doors for you. I didn't even finish getting one and it did for me. It was also a great excuse, I was bored with coding at that time and my github was dead. So when they asked why, I just told them hey, I'm getting a CCNA and I've started revising for tests. Which was true, but after I got the offer, I kinda dropped it lmao. I want to go back to it soon, remembering everything should take me like a month.

            Ok, but where did you find the US jobs? Linkedin? Did you filter for remote only?

        I actually avoid the remote jobs that have almost no real work, not out of a sense of duty or anything but because they tend to get on the chopping block fastest. I make a point to write some code every day for the Js I do have. You end up lasting longer, without burning out.

    I had three remote jobs at one point in 2021, couldnt handle them all without my blood pressure rising to extremely dangerous levels, so I ended up with just one that I work like 2~4 hours a day.

    I live in a third world country but I earn in dollars so I figured that, together with a better quality of life should be a priority.

    No point in developing some kind of health issue over being overemployed, so be careful OP.
    What's the point in having money if you are not in good health when you have it.

      I agree. I've had a full-time job for 1.5 years now where I only very rarely have mandatory meetings and only actually work about 1 to 5 hours a week. Mostly just sending emails and filling in some data in excel. I've thought about getting another job but I couldn't possibly deal with the anxiety.

      I actually get enough anxiety just from my current job. I do so little work that I get worried I'll get found out for being a lazy good-for-nothing. Getting another job and doubling up on that as well as worrying about any moment that I could get two impromptu calls from both jobs wouldn't be worth it. I might as well just stress myself out and overwork myself on one job to get paid more than overcomplicate things and work 2 jobs for less pay(albeit more combined) while constantly worrying about getting found out.

      Also I'm financially independent and already have frick you money so frick that. I'm happy with my 1 easy job.

    Guys, has anyone successfully worked 2 in person jobs? My current IT manager is a super chill boomer and rarely stops by my office to chat (he didn't even know how to use teams before I started). I'm thinking I could drive down the road to another job and work there for 1 1/2 hr. Then come back to my OG office and look busy for an hour... Rinse and repeat. Maybe even squeeze in a remote position simultaneously.

      Hey

      this is the most moronic post I've ever seen on IQfy. DO NOT do this pls lol

      Don't listen to this fricking moron

      If the offices are close you can probably make it work. Even better would be negotiating a hybrid schedule and then you just do some days at 1 office and some days at the other. Ideally you aren't in a lot of meetings/don't need to use your camera

    It's a complete larp. Maybe a few suicial savants are doing it with their 15 years SwD experience, but most aren't.
