Stay home with your family. Take the time to enjoy them have a dinner together! what can we do? I suggest looking out for one another and trying to stay positive. I have spent a endless amount of time on line looking for resources. only to be redirected hit a button because you have pop-ups that come up for advertising I mean your phone's going off because you just filled something out online and then you realize it's a solicitor it gets very frustrating. I I feel we're all in this together I think the best thing is to stay home and stay away from everybody so we can get rid of this I know it's hard but what do you do. Stay Home Stay Safe #careerdiscovery #coronavirus #foodservices
Currently seeking employment as an intern or Junior Engineer in the biotech field. Hard working and enthusiastic attitude, a result of a decade in the food service industry while completing an engineering degree from NCSU. Many talents and a diverse skill set. Quick learner and strong leader. After 1.5 years in telecommunications, a field completely foreign to me, and thriving it is time for me to explore a career in something more applicable to my field of study. #jobsearch #firstjob #careerdiscovery #interview
So I have been in retail for 11 years and have not enjoyed my job for any of them. I've constantly looked for other opportunities over this time but have limited myself geographically. I know I have let this limit myself too much and realize that it would be not only necessary, but probably even good to get out of my bubble and make a move.
What I perceive that gets in my way is ironically my education. In an attempt to better myself I achieved an MBA a few years ago, not realizing that that would actually limit my opportunities because of the likely perception among perspective employers that I would be overqualified for stuff commensurate with my level of business experience.
My experience beyond retail consists of tutoring and a few months of resume writing. I don't want to do either of these in my future.
I have even tried to get into the business office of the local chemical company by way of a temp agency, but to no avail.
Finally, I have begun networking, which seems to be helping some, but with the state of the country in the throes of a pandemic, I am going to have to wait on that for awhile.
Anyways, I just thought I'd share where I am and what has happened to me as a cautionary tale of sorts. I wish I had known the importance of internships back in my undergraduate years, but those years are long since gone. I had always thought I should be passionate about what I wanted to do as a career and had lost sight of the fact that I needed to get some practical experience in real life instead of trying to find something in school that would hopefully lead to a career.
So I don't know how I'm going to get from mindless job to career, but I know I am not giving up
