How do I find a job when you have no marketable skills that people care about?
I have Marketing BS degree and I have taken Photoshop courses and I teach myself code, but I do not have the confidence to compete with all of the experts out there because I ma still learning and I would hate to take on new clients and disappoint them and get terminated. I do not like sales but I do enjoy working ina nd around computers, but I am not as smart as I might think. When you look at my resume it is guppy with most of my background working in and around the warehouse(which doesn't pay and I do not enjoy it). I want to change direction, but I cannot seem to get the ball rolling. It seems like the world has forgotten about me, and I just woke up from a three year long coma. How can I get salaried doing what I like to do. There is just too much competition out there I cannot get noticed by the companies that matter. I would like to go into business myself, but every time I try it seems like some scummier wants to jerk me out of money I don't have. I even volunteered down at the American Red Cross and the Humane Society and that is even competitive for volunteer opportunities. What has this world come to when a man cannot be productive anymore. I can't wait til Obama is out of office and we get a real leader in office again. I am suffering here.
