I saw a few jobs for ENTRY level Office Assistants and they wanted 3 years experience. I think they need a dictionary.

**anonymous rolled image** stop complaining you dicks! Go out there, yank the managers by the balls and tell them the job is yours. They don't choose, you do!

I'm currently serving life for pulling too hard on someone's testicles and yanking them off. Good wifi here though.

No one should ever bitch about entry level pay, especially if you are just out of school or have little experience in that field. Your college degree is not and never will be a job guarantee, it's more like a shiny sign that gets the attention of employers. You start out and advance in a career based on your merits and hard work, not how good you were at taking tests and giving speeches.

I'm at Uni and needed a part time job, so found a leafleting job. It involves one day a week for around 4 hours, going to every house down a road and putting a kebab menu through the letter box.

On the job advert they wanted leafleting experience. It's quite literally a job a monkey could do. You can't even get lost because all you need to do is find houses to put the leaflets in, and you're already in a street surrounded by houses.

The training would involve
"See that house, put this in the letter box, and repeat 1000 times"

Who was the one who had the idea to put experience requirements on entry level and trainee jobs. 20 years from now we'll end up with a bunch of middle aged people with a lack of job skills because of stuff like this.

College gets you nowhere nowadays unless you choose a field that is needed, A.K.A. Healthcare, Sciences, Technology, Engineering, etc.

College sets you apart from being a low educated high school graduate as well.

Hey guys, I know you all have this fetish with Obama, and the apparent police state this country is becoming, but the easiest way to get job experience that isn't that ******** "just volunteer!" tip is to join the military.

They don't give a rats ass what sort of experience you have since most of the people they deal with are right out of high school anyway, along with the fact that they'll just think your training is **** anyway and put you through their training program anyway.

They pay you for the training, compensate for your school, pay you for the weekend a month you go run around in the desert, and employers will eat that **** up.

Well of course they'd expect you to report every month, but as for the other thing, the good news is that they're not the imaginary military you've convinced yourself they are. That won't actually happen.

Mfw I just graduated college, was the president of a big club on campus, have two years of work experience in an office, have more years of just overall work experience, and have a good resume and I STILL can't find a job better than slicing deli meat.

Entry level jobs almost ALL require experience, so they force you to either work part time at a related job that pays less, work for free as an intern/apprentice just for the sake of experience, or find a job elsewhere IF you're lucky.

You gotta start small. I just hooked a job with a local carpenter gofering heavy **** all day long. `Nother guy needed a hand and saw me working, worked with him for a while. He stopped having jobs, introduced me to new guy where I worked for 6 months. Uncle saw I had 6 months experience as a carpenter and used it to convince his partner to hire me full time. Now I work from 8-4 every day mon-fri. Backbreaking **** , but $12 better than minimum wage.

My local McDick's told me I needed at least a year of managerial experience to be considered for flipping burgers. *thumbsup*
