You need to have operated a machine the produce parts of some kind. For example: If you know how to sew, then you have experience operating a sewing machine and are a machine operator.

Most companies prefer experienced operators based on what there looking for and what particular type of machines they have. As long as it's an entry level position they will train you. If your mechanically inclined it always gets you in quicker. I operate a Plasma Cutter and a couple of Laser machines. I had no experience at either. If you become an operator and do your own maintenance on the machines...... That's how you get paid.

I have, for the first time, continually been told I was "too experienced" for positions where I met all of the qualifications and was very interested. No matter how well I may do in the few Interviews I receive, the strength of my references, testimonial letters, resume or how relevant the portfolio exemplifying my experience may be, this is an ongoing challenge. As a woman over 40, I have been reading this is very common. Even if HR asks me about salary or 'title' allocated to the role, and I assure them that I am fine taking less than I have previously earned and am not concerned with 'titles' only the role and company itself, I am left back where I started, nowhere. Some people have told me that, despite my willingness to take a pay cut, some companies are required to pay a certain salary that aligns with the level of the person they hire, making my age and experience a financial liability. If that is the case, that limits the range of positions I could even hope of procuring. I am unsure how to diminish my experience, go back in time on my age or undo being a woman or what else I can proactively do to allay any of these obstacles and procure roles I am more than capable of performing. Has anyone else faced this and, if so, can they offer any advice as to what my options may be? I have hired multiple Job and Life 'Coaches', had experts redo my LinkedIn, Resume, Cover Letter and assist in making my Portfolio look beautiful, yet even these actions have had no impact in my ability to change the inevitable outcome. Thank you for any suggestions! #jobsearch #advice #women #careerchange

I agree with Julie Koberger that it's good to have experience but some Pharmacies will train you on the job. If considering Retail pharmacies it is a MUST that you like people, and like to deal with the "general public" many of whom are often in a hurry, don't always understand what their insurance will or will Not cover/pay for, can be Very Rude, and sometimes just flat out lie. Good customer relation skills is a Must. Also these jobs can be Very physically demanding in that you are on your feet 8 to 10 hours a day. A good comfortable supporting pair of shoes also a must. If you've never been a round a pharmacy much it is like learning a second language. Terms and abbreviations unique to the medical world but don't let this stop you. You can learn this language it just takes time and determination. I've been a pharmacist 31 years and have often said a Good Pharmacy Tech can help keep the boat a float and a Bad one can sink a Ship Quick. One of the most important things you can do to keep work flow moving in the right direction is support the pharmacist. A tech who fights the pharmacist, does NOT support their efforts to get the prescriptions filled, can cause an error to occur and ultimately harm a patient. I can NOT recommend the Big Box chain pharmacies. So much of their efforts these days are focused on Money --- fill faster, faster, faster do more with less--- and Not on true patient care or safety. In the medical world you may have to work nights, holidays, and weekends. But if you are prepared to do that a Good pharmacy would be glad to train you. Hospital pharmacy is way different then retail, somewhat less stressful, and I always found it much more professionally rewarding way more then retail. Good Luck on your New endeavor.

As long as you left the previous company under good terms then put it on your resume, along with any new skills you acquired while in the position.

So I just got offered for a new (paid) internship at a tax firm and am really exited. The background check is all clear and I set up my schedule and everything. I am finishing up my two weeks at my current job (Dunkin Donuts) after 4 years. It’s bittersweet but I’m excited. But I am also very nervous. I am scared I’ll mess up or just will be so bad having no experience at all. Anyone else felt this starting a new job?
