Low-level Jobs Can Offer High-impact Returns
Low-skill does not mean you do not have skills! It means the job does not require special education, skills, qualifications, or certifications. Low-level, low-skill, entry-level, and task-oriented jobs still require you to perform with excellence including punctuality, reliability, customer service, problem solving, and teamwork among other highly sought-after employability skills.
One additional word about low-level jobs… they are diminishing. We have to be realistic about the new job market! Lower-level, task-oriented jobs are not going to pay a living wage. To get ahead today, you have to embrace life-long learning and be willing to increase your skills and education. If you do not have a high school education, now is the time to get your GED!
