I wonder, some or most positions for Management, Assistant manager, supervisor or even entry level ones, require: High school diploma or equivalent and either 5+ years or 10+ of relevant experience is required. I am trying to get an internship now, but I really don't get these companies now days. Where am I supposed to find that experience from? I also find funny when you apply for the position and they make you do a test and one of the question is: some people have their job or have a higher position because they knew the right person... and of course we must lie about it and be like; I don't agree with that! Why lie? I don’t appreciate when people lie to their managers or do what they want you to do just to get a promotion or whatever, even if the manager is wrong. Companies these days have lost their values, manners and ethics.

You get that experience by staying at one company long enough to get a higher position.

Just like UBER DRIVERS, more importantly, we need UBER PROFESSORS. If you needed some new experiences, so you could get a good job, you'd GOOGLE an UBER PROFESSOR

I understand your frustration.i worked with the same company for well over 20 years, in my case I have knowledge and experience, but also age and I feel that is an isdue as well - age discrimination needs to be addressed in the work force!

You need the experience hands on but these people make it hard. They need all these people to work but won't give much of a chance. Maybe if they let it happen they could find themselves someone that will stay longer because that person appreciates the opportunity

Guanina:

You are right. To get ahead in any work place you have to know someone and be liked by a certain person. It is the old what is the color of your nose. Or that is what it is called. In most companies today, you can't get the high paying jobs unless you have some kind of degree, or unless you are the boss's son or daughter. Sometimes you can even be the boss's nephew or niece.

Get the degree you need, if you are young and starting out. If you aren't young, then you will have to find a good buddy that will help you move up the company ladder. But you will have to put up with whatever goes on on the company floor. All the backstabbing and rumor mills that won't help those that are not liked by company executives. Don't make waves at the company and you may be able to move up somewhat. Try to find the most coveted job in the company. Set your eyes on that and don't let anyone step in your way. But also keep any moves you do make low and safe where you won't make enemies of other workers. If you are not in a union shop, work with other employees who feel the dame that you do. Make some changes in the way that work is accomplished but don't make a real sow of your accomplishments. You will have to stay in the background, until it is safe to make any mover. This may take time or a few years, but you should be able to rise to the top, and make noise about it when you get there.

Make your path safe for anyone who is like you to follow the same path. Keep the company, or work place safe for those women who follow you or want to.
