I'll try to make this brief. I recently turned 23, and due to a combination of drugs and depression since getting out of high school I have essentially no work experience. This makes responding to job postings very frustrating and humiliating as my resume feels like a complete joke. [more inside]

I applied for a job requiring 18 months' experience and was rejected (at that point, I had 9 months' experience). I fitted all other criteria. The same job has popped up again, and I now have 15 months' experience. I still fit all other criteria (the requirements for both positions are exactly the same) Should I reapply?

Need to do a simple analysis around pay and experience fairness.
Two project managers managing exactly same kind of projects and have similar performance levels:
PM 1 -> Pay $130,000 ; Experience 15 years;
PM2-> Pay $80,000 ; Experience 3 years;
I want a mathematical way of analyzing if the person getting paid $80,000 is being under payed.
Now I know there are industry standards and charts available. I want to do something that may not be perfect but gives a sense.
How much weight should be given to experience and can this be factored in mathematically?
Please dont get hung up on accuracy. I want a logical analysis method that does not need to be entirely accurate.
Also, where can I find industry charts comparing pay and experience

My brother will work for food. He's coming from a tough situation to visit me in LA for just a few weeks at most, and he needs to find some immediate work, even if it's just a few dollars a day. Are there any options for him? [more inside]

Is an MBA worth getting? I've seen a lot of talk to the contrary lately, and most of the MBAs that I know don't seem to be doing work now that particularly requires an MBA, so I'm wondering if it's just a waste of time and money compared to just gaining more work experience? I was thinking of getting an MBA as a way to shift into less pure-IT related work, since I can't seem to get rehired as a developer after a long absence.
