How To Get A Job with No Experience And No Degree Ameer Rosic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRGwjY2K-fM
I just graduated from college. I needed a job. And I'm having a job interview soon. I'm a very shy and awkward person. And I recently moved to the US. Although I don't have problems with speaking English, sometimes I get awkward speaking with people. But I always thought I needed to have a job for myself and my family. I need to be confident and positive! I CAN DO THIS! 💪🙌
I'm 18 and had never had a job before not necessarily because of anything serious, but because I wanted to focus on my grades and my clinical internship I was doing. When I graduated, i realized I needed a job so I started applying to places like crazy before starting college . Started out working at Arbys now I'm a receptionist at a tax agency. All in 2 months.Big moves take progress and effort.
My only issue with this video is that so often jobs are applied for online, so I don't have the opportunity to connect the dots. I often don't make it to the interview stage which is where I feel I really shine. With online job applications and their algorithms, how can we get past that?
I'm sorry to say but you can be very positive. If you don't have the right experience they do not invite you for a job interview. They want a perfect candidate with 2-3 years experience, know everything even much more skills than what the position needs and also super positive, super funny, super hard worker, and also sexy man or women.
This only basically covers the interview process and the problem for people that don’t have experience starts before the interview process. Where’s the video on how to get interviews and contacted back by hiring managers when you have no experience?
I went back to university this year, full tuition, one of the best universities from my country, I hope it's enough to get a first job in the field, like I'm at the third semester but I already want to work to pay for other expenses, I can't live eating f... noodles. Some of the qualifications are ridiculous, they want you to speak four languages besides knowledge in certain softwares, experience, just so you get aprox. $200 per month.
I believe the resume is the 1st point of contact to employer and that is where someone will need to stand out and be more valuable than all of the other resumes on the recruiters desk. I like the branding concept.
When ever i see this kind of videos makes me laugh. Why don't they show at-least one candidate applying for a job or any person who got a job with no experience or recommendation letters, because they are none. That is the grim reality. Everyone wants an experienced guy. But they forget everyone starts from zero. They have no respect to guy with zero experience. Getting interview is another story at least u dont even get shortlisted for scheduling an interview.
I'm 19 and I applied over 13 jobs like shoprite bestbuy old navy Walmart etc. Half didn't call and some I got an interview. 1st interview I got it was at bestbuy I was lil nervous but I faced through it everything went well my point of view I answered their questions fast with confidences next day I received a email saying they wouldn't go forward with my application I was lil upset but moved on with the other interviews but all the same dont have experience and dont fit the job position I just want opportunity to work but nothing its to the point I feel like I'll never work
this video gave me alot of confidence for my interview with this marketing firm. I never though outside the box with interviews. Today i made it into round two out of alot of others. Thank you so much.
I'm 20 and never had a job because i never needed one and therefore I didn't want to deal with people (customers and or bosses), but i need one now... I admit, i also never got one out of fear.. Fear of messing up (my mother would yell at me horribly when i would mess up, therefore i was scared of being under pressure) also fear of not being able to do things right. Time to let go of those fears.
I'm 24 with a bachelors of art but have no work experience. How can I get hired? Usually employers are easy on young people with lack of job experience but I'm nearly 30. I don't know how I can sell myself to entry level jobs. I volunteer at my church contributing to the news letter but it doesn't requite much communication skills. I just receive emails from the media director on the theme and draw a comic based on that. I did a bit of commission work from family and friends. Last October I had worked for a clothing store in a seasonal position. I could had applied to stay with the company but I became too self conscious during my last few weeks. There was a situation where my coworkers needed me to work the register but I my mind totally bailed on me. I don't know what happened but I was so nervous I couldn't count. An older employee was there to help me but I just embarrassed myself. After that day I was so ashamed I didn't feel like anyone wanted me. I know that coworkers talk to each other and I just felt like they all didn't want me around anymore so I didn't apply to stay on. Currently I'm getting ready for an interview at another clothing store but I am still nervous.
Linda these are great tips HOWEVER, your tips in this video are assuming you were called in for the interview. Most places, no matter how much you sell the qualifications you do have, don't even call you for the interview. My personal example is that I have over 17 years of retail management experience with 10 years of upper management. I am trying to get an office position and I have pointed out how in my field a lot of it DOES involve operational duties I still get the rejection emails instead of them even giving me a chance with an interview. So I need to see a video on HOW to GET the interview in the first place!
My resume is pretty good
I have 1 year of work experience in researches
I have B.S degree in Geology from the best university in my country, gpa is 3.7 out of 4.0
26 and still unemployed since last year
All what you need is connections with companies and I don't have that
Major: Information Technology
Languages: Spanish, Urdu, Some Hebrew, Arabic, Italian & French.
Experience: 6 months in Medellín, Colombia.
Sold myself, answered questions, always polite, arrive for the interview 2 hours before, sharp dress always etc etc etc.
4 months & so far no luck.
Spent 4 years at uni & I'm £37K in debt of student loans. I'm getting jobs at Telesales & supermarkets. Wth all due respect, I should have not went to university.
They don't ask the questions you have suggested. Always they have their own questions in the UK. It might be different for you guys in the states.
I am doing my utmost best to either move to Italy, South America or USA.
Any tips on applying abroad, then yeah I would be happy.
I'm 18 and I have no working experience but now I am the youngest sales advisor at H&M. And let me tell you, i failed every single face-to-face interview before this interview with H&M. They let you show who you really are and what you're capable of by some group projects instead of letting you saying a bunch of crap who knows how correct it is.
So what im trying to say is, believe in yourself. Don't hesitate. You live only once!! You can do it
I really appreciate your advice. As a bread creator, who's re-entering the 9-5 job market. These information is very valuable to me. Instead of using my resume. I choose to sell myself through using my personal brand. Thank you
im almost 17 and i started to think how do i get first job i have no clue and im kinda scarred i have some experience but guys help i just have no clue what to do where to go . help me please im from europe
James Adam give your resume (it doesn’t have to be full of jobs or anything, just describing your strengths) to places that are hiring near you. And they’ll call you in for an interview. Good luck, you can do it :)
I've applied for 5 jobs and had 2 interviews and another next week this is within 2 weeks. I've had no success so far, I've had work experience when I was in school but now trying to find part-time work it seems impossible because I always get the same response "I have the skills needed but not the experience." - that's why I'm applying to jobs I want to gain experience in industries and if I don't have the skills I always mentions that I'm really eager to learn the required skills and that I'm a motivated individual.
It's extremely frustrating experience.
Linda your video resonates in many ways, but how do you sell that brand when the interviewer asks, "What other things have you done in 10 years? How have you build processes and how have you implemented them? What have you contributed that has been used by your company?" In this particular interview I gave the lady ideas of what I had proposed, what I wanted to see, but all I could do was suggest. You see, in my job I follow procedures and processes which are already in place. I make sure the system works safely and efficiently. I am not an inventor. She wanted things that I had implemented. At the end of the interview she said she liked my energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of aviation I had, but she was looking for a person who had implemented new processes and not just had passion for good ideas. How do I even turn that around? Or is all there to do is switch jobs to have a "stepping stone"?
What employers want is someone who requires little-to-no on-the-job training with lots of experience but willing to work for a very low or entry-level wage. Unless you fit that criteria (and believe it or not, more people do than you might think), you're going to have problems getting hired.
This is made worse in a bad economy (which despite government reports has not effectively recovered in many sectors) where new grads are competing against experienced workers for the same positions.
You might ask, "Was all that school for nothing?" No, it probably gained you a lot in so-called "soft skills" (which are difficult to prove) and would be right on-track within the field you acquired your degree, but we live in a very weird time. Nowadays you're expected to leave university with $100,000 in debt just for the CHANCE to get a job that, if you're lucky, maybe pays $30,000 a year.
You might also ask, "How am I to gain experience if no one gives me a chance?" That's a classic Catch-22: You need experience to get the job, but you need the job to get the experience.
Unfortunately, employers don't care. No employer wants their business to be your training field, especially if it means you might take that experience go elsewhere (which is likely in today's market where staying at one job is unusual).
This is why the "unpaid internship" has become the new entry-level job, but there's a problem. Unpaid internships, by their very definition, don't earn you money and we all need money to survive. So in order to take advantage of this, you need to be wealthy or have a huge amount of savings or someone else paying your bills.
Most people aren't lucky enough to fall into one of those three categories, which is why you see under-employment so much today. There's a reason it's not uncommon to find the people serving you coffee at Starbucks or working as a cashier at Walmart actually have doctorates.
At this point, you're probably depressed and wondering if there's any hope. I'd like to say yes, but 90% of your future at this point really relies on luck. That's something these so-called "job experts" never talk about. Why? Because luck relies less on skill or knowing "industry secrets" and a lot more on just being at the right place at the right time.
To be fair, the other 10% involves you actually having skills, education, and being ready to take advantage of a situation if you do indeed get lucky.
So Ive been in retail since I was in high school and I'm desperately trying to get out. Do not like retail, never have but its easy to get a retail job and after being in this career after so many years Ive become stuck. I have no other experience, so I feel like I cant even apply to certain jobs, i.e administrative jobs. I have no clue where to start.
MDhunni08 Try learning from this video for starters. I would recommend learning about networking with professionals and using social media to your advantage. Honestly speaking from my experiences, these particular tactics helped me a lot.
