The company, however, still pushes the idea that it's profitable, even though the only people making profit seem to be the main owners of the company who are basically trying to sell a product that too few people want. Add to the fact that they've hyped the crap out of their initial offerings over and over again, only to pull it back before release, and people now see Groupon as what looks like a scam (even if it's not). So, it's stock is going to come out, go up really fast with the people who seem to think an initial offering is a gold mine, and then tank before disappearing forever.
So years later, I ended up being a computer repair specialist, because I was also good at ripping apart a computer and putting it back together again. But trying to get a job in computer programming has been massively elusive for me. However, every time I have gotten close, someone has been interested mainly because of something I was able to show them as "proof" I knew what I was doing. Without that, I doubt they'd even take a second look.
