I don't know what CV means... whether it = resume or not, but whatever, anyway, yeah, volunteering is always good when applying for other jobs...

Extactly this guy deals with a lot of computers, and he owns several stores throughout Germany the exp that I gain from working for him will be well worth it. And if he wants to pay me i'm not going reject it and its not like hes going have me slaving all day long over a hot stove doing somthing whichI hate.

To build a really cheap computer is 400 bucks. To build a decent 1,200 i'll be builidng both and working with both and guess what. I don't pay a dime. Well besides transportion costs but he works near my gym so i'd be there anyways.

Working for no money? Screw that.

I'd come in demanding 10+ / Hour, which is a nice bit above minimium here.

Hiya GG!! how are ya? long time no see.. hope your doing well :)


yeaps, knowledge is power... and by doing this kind of job, even without pay, in the long term will leave you with alot more money. ill bet the people with the selfish 'i want pay for everything i do' attitudes, will not get as far as the people who are willing to do a bit of work without, or with little pay. and by doing this, free of charge to the employer, he will gain the knowledge, and refrences he needs to get a long way in his career...
