He just kind of sighs at this because that is approximately the least helpful response possible for getting back to the organizer.
He looks at the rest of his list. Most of it is skilled work that requires a lot of education he doesn't have and can't fit into the amount of time that decontamination takes - even if he could take every single class in medical school remotely it takes a year. Becoming an insurance claims investigator takes two. He might be able to test out of some things - he's listened to a lot of lectures online - but the vast majority of his will just not allow him to hit the ground running. And then of the things that require less lead time than that, becoming an EMT absolutely can't be done through remote study and dance is kind of awkward to try right now (not that he doesn't know any dances but he can't really be part of a group, and he's legally required to have red hair for just a little longer so people probably wouldn't like to watch even if he put videos online, and anyway decontamination is going to kind of suck, physically, so - there basically aren’t steps to take).
In Miolee he could take the dispatch job and also go to medical school. But Miolee is a tiny equatorial auction country with a jury-rigged law code at risk of being bombed into oblivion and dependent on foreign industry, and his Evaleen isn’t very good, and also planning to move there wouldn’t get him out of here as fast as possible. And strictly speaking he could do that in Voa, too, it’d just be awkward. Very awkward.
But both of the jobs he’s applied to have had practice tests, so. Are there similar things for the orange schools he's considering? Or for the orange careers he’s considering studying for? Can the internet tell him if he’s totally unfit to be a medical lab tech or social worker?
