I have a Bachelors degree in Management. But the only jobs I keep getting is Admin or Secretary. PLEASE HELP!
I am educated, smart, highly motivated then why is it that I can't GET a job besides admin jobs. I graduated 3 years ago and after I graduated I've had 3 jobs..each of them ADMIN jobs which I kept for 1 year each. I had to accept those jobs because I needed the money and had to pay the bills, college loans, etc so I could not NOT accept the jobs. But I am tired of being at somone's back & call. I didn't go to School for ALL these years to become someone's secretary to order their lunch or pick up theirs calls. I am at a complete loss right now! What should I do? Please help me. I can't afford to go back to school again already! I still haven't finished paying off my loans from undergrad.

Successful companies don't hire people with zero experience and make them managers. It took me five years in sales before I was promoted to management. Get some experience!
