No Job for You

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of USC. All opinions are 100% mine.

There are only 4 states that have an unemployment rate worse than mine. Knowing that I am glad I already had a stable job even though I had to go on furlough for some of it. Working in certain sectors affords you some stability. What might those be? Some could include but not limited to healthcare, education, mechanical, or engineer. I know I have been using a mechanic quite often as of late and still need to fix a few more things but these are somewhat minor and is more electrical than mechanical even though the mechanic is going to have to fix it.

We recently shut down a couple of schools which prompted an excess in teachers with a short supply of jobs available to them since not all the teaching jobs were filled at the beginning of the school year. That actually developed an aggressive push for the jobs that were available and the ones with the more experience as well as certain college degrees were most likely the ones who were fortunate enough to get an interview. I still need to finish my degree before I retire from the hospital so I can start another career in computers. My only shot at this is to take online courses due to the ease of me doing my school work on my own time within the time frame given. The USC Rossier School of Education’s MAT@USC has program information regarding a Master of Arts in Teaching degree which hopefully some of the teachers here had. USC offers an accelerated 12 month course from an accredited institution that has a 100-year history which has been ranked #9 among private universities. USC has a tuition reimbursement specifically for MAT graduates. I try to pay for my courses out of pocket but may have to look into this to complete it.

    Oh my gosh! That’s awful and I can’t believe they expect you to go through all of that to get in to the office. That’ just terrible!
