This next article is something that is actually kind of important to me, personally. It’s about…
If you haven’t noticed by now, I don’t exactly look back on my service industry experience with bright-colored eyes. In fact, I very much regret a lot of it. And if I had the chance I would definitely not go into it at all, and pursue other paths. But whatever! Nothing I can do about it now, all’s said and done.
That doesn’t mean I can’t help others who are in the same boat now. Mainly college students who are working at bars and restaurants.
Because these are the kinds of service industry employees who are not going to be in there for the long run. These are the guys who will eventually be moving onto greener pastures, however, it’s a lot easier to move onto said pastures when you know how to sell yourself during a job interview.
And that’s exactly what you’ll need to do when you get out. That’s right college kids! Since you’ve dedicated your time and effort towards a profession that most likely bears little to no relevance to your intended career you’re going to have to work extra hard and persuading the other guy that you’re the one that should be hired and not the kid who’s been spending his time learning all those valuable technical skills that apply to the job, or the guy who’s been deftly networking all along.
Sounds tough right?
Don’t worry you’ll be fine.
Really, just read the article and I promise that I can at least point you in the right direction.
Until next time,
