I have been looking for another job for a year now (I graduated from college last fall and started looking last summer). I have had no luck. I was offered a new position in the company where I currently work. Title wise, it's a step down, but I won't be losing any pay. It's not in my field of study. I have so much student loan debt that I don't know if I should be taking the new position. It would offer more of an opportunity for growth than my current one, but I am afraid that if I accept it, something will come up in my field that I would love to have.

📢 Know Your Worth When Job Searching! 🚀

Are you on the hunt for your dream job? Remember, it's essential to recognize your true value and worth throughout the entire job search process. Here are some crucial points to keep in mind:

1️⃣ Self-Assessment: Take the time to evaluate your skills, qualifications, achievements, and unique strengths. Understanding your worth begins with recognizing your own capabilities.

2️⃣ Research: Investigate the current market trends and industry standards related to your desired role. This knowledge will help you gauge the value employers place on your skills and experience.

3️⃣ Networking: Connect with professionals in your field to gain insights into salary ranges, compensation packages, and the overall demand for your skill set. Networking can provide valuable information and open doors to new opportunities.

4️⃣ Be Confident: Believe in yourself and your abilities. Confidence is contagious and can significantly impact how employers perceive your value. Emphasize your accomplishments and demonstrate how you can contribute to the success of the company.

5️⃣ Don't Settle: Avoid settling for less than you deserve. Remember, your time, skills, and expertise are valuable. Be patient and wait for the right opportunity that aligns with your worth.

6️⃣ Negotiation: When you receive an offer, don't be afraid to negotiate. Research comparable salaries, highlight your qualifications, and articulate the value you bring to the table. Negotiating shows that you recognize your worth and are willing to advocate for it.

7️⃣ #KnowYourWorth: Use this hashtag to join the conversation on social media and share your experiences, tips, and success stories related to recognizing and asserting your value in the job market.

8️⃣ #DreamJobSearch: Stay connected with others who are searching for their dream jobs. Exchange advice, support each other, and celebrate victories along the way.

Remember, knowing your worth empowers you to make informed decisions, negotiate effectively, and find a job that truly values your skills and contributions. Good luck on your journey to finding the perfect job! 🌟💼

Caregiver at Cds Dallas

Ups has good benefits and the pay starts to get better if you bid to get different jobs. That's how you get quick pay raises. However, some of the work there is very hard cause you have to be able to load and unload so many pkgs to keep to the trucks ready to move out. I was there 5 years. Yard shifter, loved my job and was good at it til I was injured. After that they screwed me over really really bad. Most people don't last very long there cause it is hard work starting off but if you can make it til the job bids come out. You can make good easy money.

I have a different opinion, UPS has a lot of benefits but there’s a lot of favoritism and discrimination, I worked for ups for 23.5 years and I got terminated because I threw a chair to an open area. They told me that I was misscoudocted. I saw people abusing authority, folsefing records, hiding service providers.fisicaly abusing other employees and they all got their jobs, just watch if you decide to work for ups

Corporate work is awesome from the bottom to the top. You can grow laterally or horizontal in the company or learn enough to carry that name brand elsewhere

IBM has launched a "New Collar" Professional Certificate program on Coursera as a response to their identified skills gap.

According to their site:

"New collar jobs and training initiatives address the tech industry’s skills gap and create multiple pathways for people to land these jobs.

These aren’t “blue collar” or “white collar” jobs, they’re...“new collar” roles in technology that prioritize skills and capabilities over degrees or having a traditional career path. What matters most in these roles is having the right mix of skills and a commitment to lifelong learning."

These roles are in some of the technology's fastest growing fields. Learn more abut IBM's New Collar Professional Certificates.
