This clown thinks he can give career advice. Oh, and just in case the link ever expires, here is a screen shot:
Since it is public record, there is no law against publication.
Funny, this person wants to blast me for my career path... but lets look at some facts:
- At the time of this screen caption, the subject was about forty years of age, give or take. Prior to turning 40, I had eclipsed an earned six-figure income, and will provide evidence to any legitimate inquiry.
- The last time I made less than $50,000 was 1998: which, incidentally, was the same year I graduated college. I turned 23 that year.
- Yes, I got a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry. The average income in Chemistry is $47K.
- Yes, I work in sales. I love every minute of it.
- Yes, I got my start at Enterprise. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't change a thing. Each of these facts has made my life better. By the way, in my last year in car rental, I'd made over $30K in just the first half of the year alone. (Thru June 30)
- At the time this was written, the subject was on his third job in six years.
- At the time this was written, I have only held two primary full time jobs in the last six years - the previous one had laid me (and dozens others) off.
- Full disclosure - during the past ten plus years, I have taught martial arts in my spare time, and some might consider this a "third" job. However, my family does not depend on that job financially in the least.
- Going into car rental as a springboard to sales was certainly not a "punt" in any sense of the word. It was a springboard. I bettered myself and my family's future.
So I ask you, kind readers, whom do you think has the "low-end" job (his terminology, not mine)?
