What good paying full time jobs don't require any sort of degree?
I'm trying to seek a high paying job without a degree. Any suggestions ?
Im doing a career research project for english, and i want to work with movies. So, i need to know allllll the jobs that you can do in a movie business.
That question was first asked a week ago but I reasked it for more insights. This is the development of the case:
Since the company rules no longer match the internship requirement and the majority of the staffs have voiced their opinions that I should fire the intern. The creative director/one of the owners which is his supervisor got into a heated debate with the board of directors regarding the issue but he's finally giving up. I just contacted the representative of the university and she said that although my company violated the internship rules but they would not go as far as challenging us legally if we talk to the intern calmly and reasonably. And we have to persuade him to take another year and doing internship somewhere else.
This is still on the planning stage, the intern has not been fired nor given any warnings yet. But the intern will be informed as soon as he finishes the projects he's currently been assigned to.
I'll be more specific (and please try to be understanding, I've tried asking personal questions on here before and maybe it's the anonymity of the internet, but people say some really mean-spirited things and all I'm asking for is advice in seeking a job!): I recently graduated law school but my financial situation is such that I certainly couldn't afford to sign up for the bar or the bar prep courses. I have worked most of my adult life but again, because of my financial situation, I've only worked odd jobs here and there (like service industry stuff) to help pay for school. I haven't had a car since January and I don't live in a place with great public transit.
Since last September, I've applied for 97 different jobs (obviously non-legal because of the bar situation). Not a single one has contacted me in any way. The problem, it appears, is threefold. First, without having the option of working as an attorney, my J.D. seems to be more of a net negative than anything else. Non-legal employers immediately see it and think two things: 1) that degree has no relevance outside of lawyering (not true, obviously, but what matters is what the employer thinks, not arguing the merits of a legal education) and 2) I will always be looking for work elsewhere that pays better or better matches my educational background. Second, my work experience doesn't really translate well to anything outside of the service industry. I've never been a manager or supervisor, so as a waiter and cashier, it's been hard to sell anything other than the face-to-face encounters with customers as transferable. And finally, the lack of reliable transportation seems to be a major factor as well. Since I can't travel beyond what's within walking distance of my apartment (and the only thing within walking distance is my current fast food job and my law school), it's made it extremely difficult (impossible) to get face to face with the decision makers at these potential employers.
Thanks for your answers in advance. I've tried asking this in different ways and for some reason people just hurl hurtful things at me. I'm not exactly sure what about my predicament is offensive (to anyone but me of course lol) but I assure you, I'm simply in a desperate situation and don't have the usual fall backs like a savings or family to lean on. Just a little panicked right now... I feel as though I made a huge mistake in getting this degree and that without a car or money, it's going to extremely difficult to dig myself out of poverty...
I am asking for my husband. He has sole custody of his daughter and the mother is far from sane. Currently she gets supervised visits during the week. The supervisor has not been seen at the drop offs. We are told she is inside the house. Currently, the mother is serving weekends for child abuse and is also consider "high-risk" by CPS. The parenting time is taking place 30 minutes from my house and we are required to provide all transportation and work around the mothers work schedule for a job at big lots she just got 2 weeks ago. She is telling her daughter awful things about both myself and the child's father. She has not followed any rules and the times for visitation is constantly changing. She also has only provided one clean drug screen since July! We want to deny parenting time, but the courts keep pushing for a mother-daughter relationship. Even though the child is being mentally abused and runs the risk of being physically abused as the mother is serving time for beating an 18 Month old child. We would love to revoke all parenting time, but are afraid my husband will be held in contempt! Any advice??
Just wondering, what are some jobs in Agriculture that aren't farming?
I'm comming up with alot of jobs on monster jobsearch that pay 40-50,000 a year BUT they require highschool education or equivalent.
I was wondering if anyone had any idea on what I could make as a diesel mechanic if I had a bachelors degree to bring to the table.
Is it possible that I could get a job as a supervisor and get some good pay like that? I do have military leadership experience.
Any and all input is helpful, thanks.
I'm 19 and I need a job that pays more then $300-$350 a week. I'm wanting to know if there is any jobs that pay around $700 with a morning shift or something.
I am a college student and I am drafting a resume to apply for an internship and I am curious if anyone has suggestions on how an internship application resume may differ from a normal job resume.
Yet to start my first job waiting for calls about interviews.
Most of my work has been in the construction industry. Now I want a job as a patient transporter.
I am emphasizing conflict resolution on customer home ( leaky roof? ) and transportation and supervision of labor pools.
I want to go to school to become a large animal veterinarian but incase it doesn't work out my mom wants me to have a back up plan. I want to stay in the agriculture field and still be able to work with animals but I don't know what other jobs are available. I want to work with the horses, cows, pigs, chicken, and all the farm animals if possible. If I cant make it into vet school, I may consider becoming an agriculture teacher but it doesn't pay well. If anyone knows of other job options please let me know! thanks!
Everyone makes it sound like it's the easiest thing, you just walk in with an application and you've got a job! Everyone I tell that I can't get a fast food job just gives me the weirdest look and can't understand why.
I have literally spent months and months trying. I have applied at every fast food place nearby, some even as far as an hour away, and have never even had so much as one call or one interview. I spent all day today and yesterday running around getting applications, turning in applications, visiting places back to check on my application status, visiting managers who told me to come back to talk to them, etc. I have had some places tell me they're interested, they'll be doing interviews in a few days, they'll call me back, tell me to visit them back soon, etc., but it ALWAYS falls through even when I follow through on my part.
I do not see how the problem can lie completely with me. I have job experience in the restaurant business and am presently employed very part-time at a restaurant. I only got this job because I knew the manager, which seems to be the ONLY way around here. But obviously this is nowhere near the income I need to support myself. I am employee of the month here and have been for several months, which I have on my resume. My three supervisors all regularly praise me for the quality of my work and for my reliability, etc. I am in college trying to better myself and my future, and have a 3.9 GPA (was 4.0 before the end of this semester). Classes are out for the summer so that doesn't affect my availability for the time-being. I have reliable transportation, and am willing to work basically anytime including weekends, holidays, and late nights. So.... what am I missing? It seems like I am more than qualified for all these types of positions, yet everyone else ends up getting them... why? Again, I visit in person, call, etc., speaking to the managers, same as everyone says you should do.
When I tell people I do all this and have the experience and good record I do, they also cannot understand why nobody will hire me...
Maybe somebody here know what I'm doing wrong, or if there is something wrong with me or how I present myself?
I am also always very polite, respectful, well-dressed, etc.
Do they have to tell you in advance or could the just tell you at the job interview?
I just got offered a position with AT&T and did the drug test and all that. I believe they are doing my backround check right now. The use Hire Right. The thing I am worried about is at my current job I had transportation issues and missed a few more days than I cared to. Will Hire Right ask about my attendance? I have missed 4 days over the past 6 months and this worries me a bit.
I really want to work at Starbucks. I am currently 17 and a supervisor at one of our many theatres. There are some things going on at the theatre and I would like a new job. Thing is I applied at 3 Starbucks locations on Friday Feb. 8th and one on Monday the 11th. I have had no phone calls or anything. How long should I wait and what should I do? Sorry I get paranoid easily. Should I just go up there on friday and ask? I dunno.
I work in an industry that is heavily regulated by the US Dept. Of Transportation. I am employed as an independant contractor for a transportation company. However, I DO have a boss to answer to and I am told how, when, and where to do my work. Recently my direct supervisor has been asking me to do things that are illegal and the Dept of Transportation has specific rules that I must follow or else I can lose my professional license if I were to get caught doing some of these things. Some of what Ive been asked to do can be a threat to the safety and lives of other "innocent" people. I like my job mainly because the money is pretty good and I am in my first year of my proffession and it is something Ive worked hard to achieve.However...I do not feel comfortable in the position Ive been put in by being asked to do things that I KNOW are illegal and against my industries regulations. I am afraid If I speak out I will lose my job and have difficulties in the future.
What should I Do???HELP
Preferably a good paying job maybe one in The Department of transportation any ideas?
It seems that almost daily we have been hit by another broadside. Now we have the head of the Evangelical Church saying he is for gay sex with prostitutes but against gay marriage. Not only that but he is a counselor to our president. And for the final straw, our leaders have been referring to the fundamentalists as "whack jobs".
Where will it all end? Will the public start to question our Iraq strategy next and fail to buy the mantra that we have a just cause in being over there?
I'm a concerned Republican and seriously thinking of hitting the Democrat switch on that election machine next week!
