Is there a good job out there for me?

Am I going to be able to get a good job one day if I only work part-time now that I'm 22, or do the employers want to see that I am working 24/7 (22 y/o male)?

Your current age and the fact you are working part-time is irrelevant when it comes to determining how an employer feels about the matter.

What matters is that you apply for jobs that you are qualified to take on and that you continually upgrade yourself to be ready for more challenging job opportunities.

Working part-time provides you the opportunity to work on building your marketable skills.

It can be helpful to think in terms of a career i.e. a particular field of work, rather than a series on unconnected jobs. Sometimes, it can be a matter of taking on a series of part-time jobs that lead up to a desirable one.

Think positive! There is a good job out there waiting for you to be ready to take it on.

  • What are some hacks I can do on LinkedIn to look better to other connections and recruiters?

    Not so sure about hacks, but here’s some sage advice.

    The question is rather challenging in that you’re asking how to appeal to two different groups. If your main purpose is to appeal to recruiters, in that you are currently in job searching mode, your promotional copy needs to target them. Your promotional copy needs to be crafted so it attracts recruiters, lets them know you are looking for work and what you have to offer.

    How do you hide the fact that you lost your job on LinkedIn?


    I don’t think you need to hide the fact that you lost your job, in your LinkedIn profile.

    Conversely, I don’t believe you need to draw attention to the fact either.

  • What's the best way to deal with a coworker who steals credit for your work and ideas?

    I suppose it depends on whether it affects you in any way. If it does, then actions may be warranted. If it doesn’t affect you directly, perhaps affecting a fellow team member, you’ll need to decide whether it’s any of your business to intervene on the other’s behalf. It may be more appropriate to support your fellow team member if they want to move forward in addressing the issue, rather than taking it on yourself.

  • No-Show Phone Interview

    Phone call womanI scheduled a phone interview for 2:30 p.m. mountain standard Time and when I went back to my email to reconfirm whereas it was 10 minutes later than 2:30 already it reads please allow for a call within 30 minutes of the scheduled time. That seems strange to me.. and now we approach the last 5 minutes of that 30-minute window and still no hide no hair no phone call. Do I reach out to them after the 30 minutes is up or do I assume that I should move on and keep looking elsewhere?

    As I am responding to this question 16 days after you have posted it, I would expect you have resolved it by now. So, my response is directed at anybody else facing a similar situation.
