We posted this chart (with a h/t to explore-blog) yesterday, looking to spread some tips for job hunters. Turns out, there was some good advice spread around! Here are just some of the tips Times readers shared:
Sunfell: Two words: Trade. School.
Badeggfitzgerald: Go back to school and hope someone fixes the problem in the next couple years. If not, repeat and get your doctorate.
Beardie: Key is experience, experience, and experience.
If you’re willing to relocate… maybe even location. LA is a tough, mega-competitive market filled with highly qualified candidates at every level.
My job sucks and I’m severely underpaid—but I can at least pay loan minimums and get to have a title on the resume.
Becca Express: Treat looking for a full-time job as a full-time job! Rejection happens daily, keep trying and remember, any job is better than no job. You can get picky later. Just get experience now.
Evetsy: Government jobs, especially at the state and federal level, are usually the best place to look for a job. The things I’ve read and stories I’ve heard make this for a most frugal option.
Also, I’ve come to learn that one should be the business. Freelance, I guess you can say— become your own boss. No one hires you? Fine. You are the expert in your field; you have your credentials. (more in the link)
Thanks to everyone who shared, and just in case the font at the top of the page is too small to notice, here’s a link to some info for L.A. Times internships!
