Ready or not, here it comes...

Recommended Posts

This is still a problem. I'm no longer freelancing and am now working a job that doesn't really utilize my skills. There are a few jobs I'm thinking to apply to but it's all very intimidating. There's no confirmation I won't suck and get fired after week one!

 

If a position is "entry-level", would you assume there is some sort of training and/or extra tolerance for errors and questions?

One thing I have learnt is that you should just try your luck! I have passed up so many opportunities because I was too intimidated by the job and thought I didn't have the right skills for it only to find out that a lesser qualified person who didn't even have any experience got the job.

 

I'm also pretty sure that with labour laws you can't get fired after a week unless you are completely and utterly useless :P

 

Entry-level positions usually have some kind of training. In all jobs, unless it works differently in the States, there is a probation period where you learn the ropes and are given a bit of a break. This is usually 3 months and once the time period is up then you and your boss sit down and talk about the good the bad and the ugly and work forward from there.
