Experience needed for Entry Level

Job hunting in entry-level positions

You decide to search for job positions in a particular field.

You have little work experience in that profession.

You decide to look for opportunities on Internet job boards.

To narrow your search, you filter your job positions by entry-level. Thinking entry-level jobs would require no or little job experience.

As you look at the search results, however, you find some job positions classified as entry-level jobs that ask for moderate work experience.

You may have to filter job positions classified as entry-level by work experience.

www.indeed.com has the “No Experience Required” Filter

One job board called www.indeed.com has different filters to narrow a job search.

www.indeed.com has a “No Experience Required” choice from the “Experience Level” filter box.

The filter boxes appear after one does a search.

When I played with this feature, I would have some search results showing job positions requiring moderate work experience. A job seeker may need to filter jobs classified as “No Experience Required” by work experience.

Entry-Level Positions may still require job experience

Sometimes some job boards list job positions as entry-level but still require moderate levels of job experience.

This can become frustrating for a job seeker looking for positions requiring little or no work experience. Job Seekers may have to filter job positions classified as entry-level by work experience.

In conclusion

In conclusion, entry-level job seekers may experience frustration when searching for job positions listed as entry-level. Sometimes job positions classified as entry-level will still require moderate levels of work experience. An entry-level job seeker may need to filter jobs classified as entry-level (or related job skill categories) by work experience.

Notes & Memory: Your Remote Job Tool

In the job search, you may have job events where you want to remember the information. You may decide to write notes on the job event to help you remember.

Some job events could be:

  • Hearing a presentation on the job search at a career fair, career association, or job club.
  • An informational interview where you ask a person about a profession you are interested in
  • Employment Interview where you interview for a job position

 

Write the notes soon after the job event.

I find writing notes soon after the job event helps me to remember the information better. I can better recall the information if I write notes soon after the job event.

 

Once you have the notes on paper, you do not need to worry about remembering the information from your memory.

You will have a record of the information from your notes. You will not have to remember the information using your memory alone.

 

In conclusion

In conclusion, writing notes after a job event may be valuable. The notes may help you remember the information.

What is remote work?

What is remote work? Do people know what a remote job means when they see a job listed as “remote” on a job board? People can have different ideas about remote work arrangements when they see a job listed as remote. In a July 6, 2022 article from The Wall Street Journal, “Is That Position Really Remote?” (By Lindsay Ellis), the article highlights that a job seeker and potential employer may have a mismatch regarding the work arrangements for a remote job. The mismatch can create wasted effort for the job seeker and potential employer in the job search.

Example of Mismatch In Remote Work

For example, a job seeker may think a job listed as “remote” on the job board is a fully remote position. The potential employer who placed the remote job on a job board believes the job is a hybrid position.

Different Remote Work Arrangements

People can have different work arrangements for remote work.

Here are some common arrangements for remote work.

  • Fully remote jobs are where one can work the entire job remotely without having to go to a physical work location.
  • Hybrid jobs combine working remotely and in a physical location.
  • You can have a fully remote job when a job is listed on a job board, but will transition into a hybrid or complete in-person office position later.

Methods To Clarify Work Arrangements for Remote Work

A potential job seeker may wish to do the following activities to clarify work arrangements for a remote job.

  • Contact the potential employer. A job seeker can contact a potential employer to learn the work arrangements for the remote job.
  • Read the job description carefully. The job description may describe the work arrangements for that remote job.
  • Flexjobs job listing. A website called Flexjobs (https://www.flexjobs.com/) is a career website focused on remote jobs. Flexjobs gives a job seeker way to search for jobs based on work arrangements for remote work. For example, a person can search for 100% remote jobs, meaning the job would be 100% fully remote for that job. Or a person could search for hybrid positions where they would work remotely part of the time from their home and the other time at a physical work location. Flex jobs allow people to search for positions based on remote work arrangements.

In Conclusion

In conclusion, work arrangements for remote work can vary. A job position listed as remote can have different work arrangements for that remote job. A job seeker may wish to clarify the exact remote work arrangements for that remote job position. A job seeker can reduce the wasted effort in applying for jobs that do not serve their needs by understanding the work arrangements for remote jobs they see listed on a job board.

Plan duplicate and test

When you earn an income from your remote job or business, you may have critical systems that need to work. Plan, duplicate, and test your critical systems with backup copies. So, if your original system fails, you have a backup copy available to allow you to work remotely.
Here are some examples.

Internet connection

You may need an internet connection to do your remote work.
The internet connection may be a critical system you need to allow you to do your work remotely.
You may find it valuable to plan, duplicate, and test duplicate copy internet systems to allow you to work remotely if the original internet connection system fails. For example, you may decide to use your cell phone as a duplicate system by using your cell phone as a Wi-Fi device. Another example, you may decide that your local library may serve as a duplicate Internet system for you.

Computer systems

You may find that your computer system is critical for you to do your remote work.
Your computer system is a critical system that you need to do your work remotely
.
So, therefore, you may find it valuable to plan, duplicate, and test a duplicate computer system that can serve your needs if your original computer system fails. For example, investing in a duplicate laptop computer may be valuable if your original computer system fails.

Think about what critical systems you need to have to allow you to work remotely. You may decide to create duplicate systems you can use if your original system fails. I suggest you test these duplicate systems repeatedly to ensure the duplicate systems work when you need them.

In conclusion

In conclusion, you may have critical systems you need to work remotely. Plan to identify what these critical systems are, duplicate them, and then test them from time to time to help ensure that they will work when you need them when your original system fails.

Happy July 4th

Have a wonderful Happy July 4th

Have a wonderful Happy July 4th
(For those in the United States and those who celebrate the holiday)
I spent this week celebrating Happy July 4th with friends and family for me.

Next week, a new post will appear; may everyone have a wonderful week.

See a career expert early on your job journey; it can reduce the odds of sending out resumes with errors.

Photocopiers will make copies of the original document. If that original document has a mistake, then the copies of the original will also have mistakes. The person who created the original document will create negative impressions if they give the copies of the original document to others. The copies of the original document will contain the same mistakes as the original document.

The resume may contain errors

A job seeker may create a resume with mistakes; the job seeker may not catch the errors. Then, if the job seeker duplicates their resume for potential employers, that resume will contain the same mistakes as the original resume. A job seeker will not create a positive impression with a resume with errors.

No feedback in the job search

One problem a jobseeker can have with the job search is that they may not receive feedback in the job search itself except for “No .”The job seeker may not know the reasons behind the “No.”The job seekers may not realize that the resume they are sending out contains mistakes, for the original resume includes mistakes. Since the job seeker may not get feedback in the job search, the job seeker may not be aware that errors in their resume are preventing them from being successful in their job search. The job seeker may not make much progress with their job search.

Benefit from a career expert early in the job search journey

A job seeker may benefit from seeing a career expert early in their job search journey. The career expert may help edit the job seeker’s resume and be able to find errors in the resume. The job seeker can then improve the resume they send out to potential employers.

In conclusion, job seekers may benefit from seeing a career expert early on their career journey. The career expert may find errors in the original resume document. If the job seeker makes copies of the resume, those copies of the resume will less likely have mistakes in them. The job seeker may have a more successful job search.

Remote Job Ideas

Here are some ideas for finding remote jobs on the Internet:

  • When you find a job position posted on a job board, you may find it helpful to look at the organization’s web page that advertised the job position. Go to the organization web page of the organization that advertised the job position. You may (sometimes) find more details of the job position described on the organization’s web page rather than on the job board. The additional information about the job position may help you better evaluate the job position.
  • Look at your e-mails in your junk e-mail area–many e-mail systems will have a junk e-mail area collecting junk e-mail. Each e-mail system may call its junk e-mail area different names. For example, the Yahoo e-mail system’s junk e-mail area is called “Spam.”

I recommend you check your e-mail messages in your junk e-mail area occasionally. Sometimes, you can have important e-mail communication accidentally placed into the junk e-mail area. If you do not check your e-mails in your junk e-mail area, you could miss out on important e-mail messages.

In conclusion, check for job descriptions from the organization’s web page that advertised the job description and examine your e-mail in the junk e-mail area of your e-mail system.

Canva – Your Perfect Free Online Graphic Design Tool

A YouTube video that can explain Canva can be:

In conclusion, Canva is a great free online graphic design tool for your digital design needs. I would highly recommend the software.

YouTube Channel – Way to Organize It

You may use a YouTube channel for your remote business, remote career, or personal use. You may decide to improve the quality of your YouTube Channel page by adding the following features:

Video spotlight

Special Video called a Video Spotlight to welcome people – you can create a special video to welcome people when they come to your YouTube channel page.

Video Spotlight can introduce your viewers to your YouTube channel page.

You can create two different special videos based on whether people are subscribed to your YouTube channel or not. The Special video has two different names based on if a person subscribed or not.

  • Channel trailer

A special video called a Channel Trailer appears when people are not subscribed to your YouTube Channel. The special video appears on your YouTube Channel page.
