Looking for the perfect job can seem to take some time. However, I wanted to respond because I see your technician. Depending what career path you want to take in the Tech world can vary . However, any job that has a technical side would benefit you to get experience until you know what path you want to take. Verizon Wireless has a Tech Support team that specialize in trouble shooting customer devices. This would be an entry position that can help to move to other technical positions in the company. If you are interest in IT you can search for hospitals, schools, and business. Best of luck!
Hello Edward, Great question.
It depends on what kind of job you are looking for, like myself, I work for Verizon Wireless and continuing my education for Human Resources. For me it will take me 8 years to get to a Human Resources degree, but during this time I found a career with Verizon Wireless until I can finish my degree. Some companies will help you get a degree or help you get the education you need for the position. I plan to stay with Verizon Wireless after i finish my degree, and will explore the company while continuing my education. I currently am in the role of tech support and plan to explore other roles as well.
Hi Edward! It's a great question!
Personally, I started working for a different company in an entry level position initially, when I was in my 20's, and got promoted to supervisor within about 3 years. That company ended up closing, but by that time I had enough experience to apply for a job here at Verizon. I was hired in a supervisor, but that is not the norm here at Verizon. Typically, you would want to start in an entry level position - such as a customer care representative - and then work your way up. Some people are totally happy to have an entry-level position, and others want to progress within the company, so that bit is really up to you. Also, how quickly you can get promoted really depends on you as well. If you take initiative, and really participate in your own career, you can progress much more quickly than if you wait for someone else to make it happen for you.
