I have worked for small, mid and large companies. I feel that I like the structure in mid to large companies. With the small companies that worked for (only 2), sometimes you have to do everything, from emptying the trash to handling large amounts of cash, every visitor, every phone call, every document. I’ve had to work weekends, for which I wasn’t paid (or in any way rewarded). I just made a salary, no benefits except 2 weeks vacation

With mid to large companies, I’ve been rewarded for working overtime, I was offered insurance, 401K and profit sharing at one employer. The employers provided handbooks therefore you knew all the rules, benefits, etc. I prefer this.

Don't have a college degree? Don't let that hold you back!

If you don't have a four-year college degree, you're hardly alone. The majority of US working age adults do not.

your chances may be better than you think, thanks to a growing network of white-collar apprenticeship programs that lead to jobs at blue chip employers, including big tech players like Google, Amazon and Salesforce.

Did you know retail companies actually employ almost as many people over 55 as it does people under 25?

This is an INTERESTING article about the future of retail work. Why don't companies value retail workers like other fields? Could that change in the future.

This is a good read...

The #1 way I prepare for interviews

The way I prepare fore interviews is to develop a "story bank." These examples should be in your resume, and in the interview be prepared to elaborate...

Interviews will often have "tell me about a time when ___ " type questions. Write out beforehand a few scenarios that could potentially fit those types of questions. And if you don't have an experience that fits their question, it's totally acceptable to say something like, "While I don't have an example of an experience like that, if I did, I would do [x,y,x]."

So when one of these questions comes out, just pull out a story from the bank - it's even possible to tell a story from the bank if it's not related to the question being asked.

How do you prep for #interviews? #JobSearch #NextJob

I just came across this article, and it's so interesting to me. I haven't really done these things in the past:

  1. Make your online presence impeccable
  2. Customize your resume
  3. Be prepared for this tricky interview question
  4. Seek out mentors
  5. Don't be afraid to show your enthusiasm

Do you do any of these things, OR something else in your #JobSearch?
