That’s pretty frustrating. Even job postings for waiting tables come with this high barrier of entry nowadays. Marketing, communications, sales and administrative jobs now all want candidates with years of related experience. Don’t be discouraged. If you really think about it, it’s impossible for all jobs to really require previous experience. If all jobs really required experience, everyone would be unemployed. How do you bootstrap your career? The first thing is to accept that you’re not going to get your dream job right away. In fact, your first job may not be that amazing, but you’ll get to use that experience to sidestep into something better, so you might as well go for it. Let’s talk about getting one of those jobs you definitely could do if it weren’t for the experience barrier. For this, you’re going to have to respin any and all life, work and volunteer experience to look transferrable. You probably have transfer-

rable experience, you just haven’t realized how you can spin it in the cover letter. If you’re looking at a sales position, consider the fact that maybe you used to babysit or petsit. Play up how you interacted with your clients and built a business network. You weren’t just looking after children- you were coordinating, scheduling, answering phone calls and running a business. See how professional that looks when you spin it this way? If the job requires lots of interaction and people skills, talk about volunteer projects you helped organize. Generally, these sorts of things take a lot of phone calls, planning and interacting. Let the employer know about your accomplishments when it comes to working with people in any sphere. If the job requires computer skills, demonstrate your knowledge of computers and use of spreadsheets for school. You may not have a

work experience bullet to show off your qualiications, but you can play yourself up by including a “skills” section at the top of the page. Use connections. If a family friend needs a part-time assistant at work, go for it. Volunteer for a short term if necessary. Even this much will give you documentable experience you can use to land your next position. Don’t view that “1-2 years” statement as a reason not to apply. Employers optimistically put high requirements on wanted ads, even though they may hire an “underqualified” person in the end. Spin your skills and life experience to get an employer’s attention. Prove to them with your skills and life experience you really can do the job. u

F L SEEMPLOYMENT

The Pros and Cons

by Michael Collins

You’ve read all the books on self-employment, got yourself a million-dollar idea, and you’ve cleaned out your retirement fund, and now you think you’re ready to start your own business. Not so fast there, tiger! Did you sit down and really think about this? Is this really a good idea? What are the risks associated with this kind of thing? Do the pros out way the cons when it comes to being an independent entrepreneur? Well, let’s find out.

WALK IN with your

TAX REFUND...

DRIVE AWAY

in a

NEW CAR!

First, the pros:

1. Be Your Own Boss: This is the obvious one. No more boss breathing down your neck, and no more petty office politics or egos to deal with. Score! 2. The profits are YOUR’S to command: When the money being made is from your blood, sweat, and tears, you’ll be more motivated to take the big risks that result in the biggest gains. No more will you put your all into a project only to receive the same salary as that guy two cubicles over who’s only still there because it’s cheaper than firing him.

3. There’s less restraint on your creativity: Did you ever have an idea for how to make your job more efficient, or your company more money? Didn’t it tick you off when management either completely ignored it, instituted it without giving you credit or reward, or, even worse, gave the credit to that guy two cubicles over? With your own business, you’ll be free from PointyHaired Bosses or restrictive policies, and you can finally implement all those wonderful ideas you had - and you’ll reap all the benefits. 4. You can set your own hours (well, to a degree. You’ll see when I get over onto the “Cons.”). 5. The self-employed are much better off than the employed when it comes to taxes: depending on where you live, you save come tax-time on company vehicles (I bet you never SAVED money by driving to work before), lunches, and a host of other business-related expenses. 6. The Power and the Glory: when you write a successful report and stay up all night to finish debugging that new software patch at work, do you fully expect to wake up the next morning and see your picture on the front page of the Wall

Street Journal? If you said “yes,” striking out on your own may be a better route to take. When you succeed on your own, all the accolades will fall into you - instead of the blame. Well, that’s most of the good stuff - but, of course, every coin has two sides. What about the disadvantages, the cons, to running your own business? 1. The Hours: what was once listed as a “pro” has found its way over to the con side. While it’s true that you CAN set your own hours, you really don’t have much choice in which hours are used. In order to succeed on your own, you’ll find that you require a HUGE investment of hours in which you used to watch your favorite television shows. As an employee, you may have worked 40 hours a week; as a self-employed entrepreneur, you can expect to spend 80 hours or more, and you aren’t even guaranteed that you’ll make any money! Which brings me to the next con... 2. No Pay For You: as a young, self-employed go-getter, you only get to enjoy any money when your business is actually making it. Heck, most small start-ups don’t even turn a profit for the first year or two. Keep this in mind when you

start allocating funding for payroll and other expenses - after all, entrepreneurs gotta eat. 3. Failure: there’s a statistic floating around that says that four out of every five new businesses fail. I’m not sure that’s very accurate, but it sure as hell feels that way. Most entrepreneurs fail on their first go (the exceptions being folks like Mark Cuban), so it’s more likely than not that you’ll encounter this prospect. Don’t anticipate failure, just be warned that it’s very likely. 4. Stress, or, “It’s All on You, Atlas:” like the old god, you’ve got the whole world on your shoulders when you decide to work for yourself.

Keep these in mind as you decide whether to start your own business, and take full responsibility in your decision. Remember, the road to independence will be tough, but as long as you value success and achievement above the momentary comfort of the severance package and the company dental plan, it’ll all be worth it. u
