DaSabria’s Answer

Hello there!

I'm currently working as a Monitor Tech in Centralized Telemetry. Not too long ago, I transitioned from a military career, where I proudly served, to this new path. My previous experience in various medical fields helped me land this job. Interestingly, I stumbled upon this opportunity on LinkedIn, a professional networking site.

Even though I didn't have any direct experience for this particular role, I didn't let that deter me. During the interview, I confidently highlighted my eagerness to learn and adapt. So, here's my advice to you: don't hesitate to apply for a job even if you feel you might not meet all the qualifications.

Remember, networking is a powerful tool and maintaining your motivation is key. So, keep your spirits high, stay connected, and keep pushing forward!

Hello Julia!

During my college years, I had a clear vision of my future - I wanted to dive into the world of event planning. I seized every opportunity to engage in event-related internships around the campus, each one offering unique experiences that shaped my interests. Upon graduation, I veered off my initial path, exploring a different direction, but eventually, I found my way back to the realm of event planning. What I discovered was that the diverse skills and characteristics I had acquired from my previous roles were instrumental in my growth, making me more proficient in my current job. So, keep pursuing your passion with unwavering dedication, and you'll achieve your dreams!

Jerome’s Answer

I worked with a person at the first job I ever had. I tried my best and that person appreciated my efforts. We both went on to different companies and one day he had a job available that made sense for me.

Pretty sure I didn’t even fill out an application for the Vice President role I have. Make sure you treat people well and put in a good effort in all jobs, you never know who is seeing your work.

Here's a little about my journey to this role:
Education: I wrapped up my engineering degree with a flourish.

Samuel’s Answer

I left a couple careers that paid well but were physically taxing. I also did not want to become a bitter old guy teaching young apprentices how I was taught. I remembered that I like helping people so I went back to school at 38 to become a medical assistant. I had trouble the whole way but I talked to people about those problems despite thinking about how I would look. The success of graduating a couple times, made up for all that. Now I am looking at a degree & some certifications on my wall: if I had succumb to my doubt, fear, & anxiety, I would not have those things.

Kay’s Answer

I am a retired operating room nurse. I began my career as an RN student right out of high school. I had no idea what I was getting into and wanted to quit several times. My parents thought it was a good fit for me and encouraged me through those difficult times. Nursing allowed me to "try out" many different positions. I began in New born nursery, followed by Labor and Delivery, Surgical floor nursing and finally I was brave enough to enroll in an operating room nurse class and loved it! Finally I found my career!
I believe you will find your way....you are already curious and looking for answers.
Good luck!

Keyston’s Answer

I landed my role as a supervisor by starting at the ground level and working my way up. My wife and I saw an opportunity to build a maintenance company, and I dedicated myself to learning the ropes. Hard work, dedication, and a willingness to learn got me here, leading the team and ensuring our facility runs smoothly.

Rosa’s Answer

Hi there, there are several ways of getting a job. These include writing a resume, attaching your testimonials, and going physically to your target workplace. In other cases, you can send them through an email or other electronic means where they will be stored in a database and reviewed for opportunities.

Other means include responding to direct advertisements in newspapers, websites, or radio. You have to follow the instructions as per each advert. Hopefully, you will get through all the stages.

In my case, I responded to an advert on the website. I applied and there followed interviews. Here I am now.

Just apply for that opportunity you qualify for. You never know. I wish you success in your job hunt. There is always a place for you!
