Getting a job that needs experience without experience
I'm 48 and after taking a couple of decades off to raise my kids, I'm trying to get back into an office job. I was looking for something that could be either in an office or remote and came across bookkeeping. So I went to the community college and I'm getting a Certificate in Bookkeeping. I'll be done in December. I have a 4.0 GPA Thanks to Covid, I'm delaying getting a job for a bit. In the meantime, I'll get certified in Payroll.
My problem? Almost every job posting requires 3-5 years experience. How do you get the experience if you can't get a job? How do you get a job without experience? I feel trapped in a circular problem here.
