Hello, I am proficient in Microsoft Word, but not in powerpoint and Excel. How important do you all think it is that I update my skills as a secretary in Powerpoint and Excel. Seems everyone requires it.
I have been driving a truck for a living since graduating college in December of 2006. All the companies I interviewed with always ask why I want to give up truck driving when I make more driving. How do I sell myself to a company that has a position that makes less money? The whole point of going to college was to use the degree eventually correct?

I started working at a nonprofit at 17 as a video editor for their youth program. I felt like my life was on cloud nine during that time and the sky was limit. I was definitely wrong! Five years later, the youth program went downhill and eventually cancelled. Now I'm working as a visitor services assistant and they won't promote me to another position because I don't have enough experience. I don't have a degree but actually learned how to edit videos on the job with the help of a former supervisor; that's how they saw me grow into the job. They know I'm a proactive go getter when it comes to taking on new challenges with work so I don't understand why I need to have previous experience all of a sudden. How can I convince them that I can learn the job?
Sometimes when the pressure is on to find a job, we often don't look beyond what are current skills are. When feeling down, sit down and write all the things you are good at and the skills needed to perform at your current level. Make a second column indicating what you aspire or would like to be doing, note what skills you have that are transferable and those that you need to acquire. Lastly, you may have to look at relocating to a more affordable area, if the area in which you live is beyond your means. You can also reassess your living situation, perhaps moving home for a short time to regroup and take courses to meet the future skills needed for the position you seek.
You would need to have great customer service skills. You would need to have great money handling skills and be reliable
