I graduated from Ottawa University (Canada) and I gained a bachelors of social science (general) with a double minor in economics and business administration. I was originally planning to get a bachelors of economics with a minor in business administration but my GPA was 0.5 too low. So now I have this and I just graduated (in 26 by the way...I left university for a few years due to medical reasons).
I'm really a hard worker. University was just a bumpy ride. So now I'm really wondering what to do to get a job with a salary that's around the nation's average which is 45-50k a year. I get plenty of interviews for crappy minimum wage jobs but I want to find a job where I can gain experience to get a better job with later.
I just don't know how to apply for that kind of jobs. I use indeed.ca and I search "entry level" and "40-50k" and have applied for a few jobs that way but most of the job postings sound good (they'll say 20-45 dollars an hour) but they're actually not what they appear to be.
...As you can tell I'm like a total BABY LAMB when it comes to my career...but this is something I deeply want to change :(.
So can anyone please take some time out of their busy day to help me figure out how I can reach that goal of making 50k a year? How do I know what jobs to apply for to gain the right experience? And bonus, if you can help me figure out how to figure out what jobs are NOT right to apply for.
Please...! I am so clueless and directionless and it hurts so much already being so far behind other people, but I want to have hope I can catch up and find a good job.
