I landed my first job by starting off as a volunteer! I went to a sailing camp for a number of years when I was younger and learned to sail. I eventually started volunteering at the camp and after a couple summers was hired as a paid sailing instructor. If there's a job or industry you're really passionate about, seeking out volunteer opportunities could be a great way to get your foot in the door!

So recently I was let go and on very morally questionable grounds and right before Christmas literally 3 days before I moved into my new place all seemed great until I was asked to come to the office and that's when I got delivered the news. It was heart breaking and terrifying because all I could think was now what. I had just enough money to post for 2 months rent and that was it but I got let go at the worse part of the year. In my field... see more

I was coming out of the bank one day I noticed that my car was being towed of course I kicked and stomped nothing I could do about it so when I went down to pay the 300 and some odd dollars if they were charging me since my registration is expired I asked who handled her collection accounts 3 years later my agency had collected almost 10 million dollars and had over a hundred clients in the towing industry it's a true story

Networking has helped me in a few ways.
Emailing a resume.
Letting the place of business know that I am interested in the job.
If they are interested in me, they are able to get in touch, but I find that they hardly ever do get in touch, and I am the one that has to persue them.
When I persue them, it is difficult, because they never supply me with their phone number, so, there is no real communication.

Hello all,

I'm looking for a career mentor as I'm interested in changing my career into something more coding related. I'm starting to take courses online on programming but was looking for someone currently in the business that could give me some ideas on how to get started being an independent consultant and what the field to get into would be. I have many questions and not many people I can talk to. Any ideas or guidance would be appreciated
