So here's the problem. I work as a bartender and have for years. I've been at my current job for 4 years and my boss REALLY wants me to be a manager. I appreciate that he has faith in me and my ability to be a good leader, but I don't know that I want to be a manager.

I know it'll be good for my career development but I really enjoy being a bartender. But he's been asking me every single shift....

Advice? Thoughts?

No goals, I’ve achieved my Goals in Life; retired as a Senior NCO in the Military and was a successful Manager at a Steel Mill afterwards. I would like to work part time to make alittle extra income, but nothing more then $250.00 a week

No offense but I have always found that question to be strange. I don't think people really know what they want to do in five years. The logical answer would to be happy, healthy and making a ton of money.

Have you realized that you may be a bit overqualified at your current job? Here are some tips to help you through.

  1. Ask for more responsibilities
    There's nothing worse than feeling bored at work. Ask your manager or supervisor for additional duties or responsibilities. You may be surprised with what you are offered to take on! This could help you add some excitement into your days AND give you some resume-boosting experience.

  2. Extend a helping hand to fellow coworkers
    If you notice that a coworker is always frazzled and overwhelmed with too many tasks, see if you can help out. You may be able to work on new projects and even learn a new skill or two.

  3. Network, network, network
    Never underestimate the power of making connections. Networking with others - those inside your company, clients, friends of friends, etc. - can help you gain insights into other industries and positions that could help you down the line! You never know who you may meet, you could unwittingly make a career-changing connection!

I did ask for a raise when new hires were starting out making more than myself. I got it!! I learned a lesson right then and there you have to look out for yourself because no one else is going too

Making #connections is a crucial part of building your network and accelerating your career!

When pursuing his studies, Dovas realized how important it truly is.

"Networking is no longer optional; opportunities arise through interaction and not through a transcript."
