What was your first job?
As I was walking my dogs this morning, I started thinking about my #firstjob and how crazy (and exciting!) my career journey has been since then.
I started babysitting for friends and family at a very young age, but my first "W-4 job" was a birthday party host at a laser tag arena. It was a RAD first job, I've got to say!
Since then, I've held various roles including: barista, host, server, bartender, marketing intern, PR intern, copywriter, digital communications manager and of course, my current role as a Jobcase community specialist!
To this day, I still leverage skills I learned in that very first position such as customer relations, time management and the ability to effectively communicate. Of course those skills have been refined and approved upon since then, but the foundation was laid waaaaaay back then :)
What was YOUR first job?!
COVID-19 Affecting Job Availability
Hello there! My name is Julia Bassett. I am a student attending Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. For the past several months I have been looking for a job. I need a job in order to pay my college expenses as well as find a way to pay for an apartment. Due to COVID-19, many businesses were forced to cut their employment in half or keep the people they already employed. As a result, I was not able to begin building my resume with part time employment. I am in the process of finding a job, but I find myself stuck because there are not many opportunities for people such as myself to find a job. It is rather frustrating to search for jobs online when some websites are not credible or they do not provide you the information you need. I am very concerned for people without work experience because they simply cannot find work during these uncertain times. I am not sure what solution there is out there to help these people. If there is anyone out there who has an idea of how to successfully land a job in these strange times, your advice is welcome and appreciated! I hope that you who are struggling will reach out to friends, family, professors, and other figures in your life for advice in finding work. I wish you all the best of luck! #coronavirus #advice #workfromhome #firstjob
