So here is some background information on me. I moved up to minnesota from arizona in august of last year. Currently, I am employed at a grocery store just to pay the bills. However hours are getting cut from my part time shedule(even though I asked for full time), I get paid crap, I take so much crap, and my self respect seems to be going out the door. I don't think that a great kid who is personable, outgoing, has two associates degrees, and has had three other jobs should be left to "settle". However, with the job market being as bad as it is, I find myself getting led on by emloyers only to have the trail go cold soon after. Seeing as how you guys are an awesome well-rounded group of people, I thought I would ask for advice from the guys. What are some tips or suggestions that would help someone break into a professional job environment? Also, if you are an employer what would you look for when hiring right now? I doubt I can be the only one going through this. Hope this helps others too!
