I'm sharing this picture because I find it difficult, overwhelming, and frankly sad that society believes work ethic is based on degrees. Granted, it shows determination, and I'm by no means knocking someone down for having one, but for those of us who work the buns off our backs without degrees, it's discouraging.
That being written, what advice do you have for someone who is in a call center that burns their soul everyday they work ?! I have recently applied to open positions near me at other companies, even cleaning up a facility to get out of this place, but it has not gone further than a return email telling me I'm not as qualified as the other candidates that also applied... *SIGH*
My ultimate goal is to become an EMT so that I may go into the Arizona National Guard as a Health Specialist [or Combat Medic; can't remember the official term because I saw both and got confused]. Holding me back from that is debt, bills, and more debt considering it will take approximately $2,500 for the EMT schooling... I feel like I'm working for nothing these days!
They say you should live to work, not work to live. Meaning, you should live for the work you do because that's what you are passionate about, not HAVING to work in pursuance of life [such as living paycheck to paycheck].
ANY ADVICE on budgeting, how to make yourself more appealing when applying for a position, really ANYTHING is most welcome! :-) [Please create a positive response!]
Thanks for reading.
