I have always gone after low paying jobs because I know that I could quickly get them. Most of the jobs that I have had, I didn't even have to interview for them. I just showed up, filled out an application, and I got the job(s). There have been several jobs that I would love to have but didn't apply because I think I wouldn't get them or if I did get them I would get fired the first time I had to ask off for my son's doctor's appointment or if he was sick, etc. I have even gone to college and in my senior year, I panicked, so I quit because I was afraid that I wouldn't get hired after graduation. I am so sick of having this fear of rejection. I want a career. My son is in elementary school now and is not as dependent on me so I think this would be a good time. I am going back to school but I have changed my major because I realized that I didn't really enjoy my other major. I am going to school for a Bachelor's in Business Administration. I would like to get a job that pertains to that but I am afraid that I won't be able to because of my lack of experience and my previous jobs. What can I do? What jobs should I apply for so that I can get my foot in the door and work my way up?Answer Question

I just started reading What Happy Women Know by Dan Baker and I thought about you. I am finding it very helpful and I'm not done with it yet. You might take a look at it. Your local library probably has it. I wish you all the best. Take care.
