The pay may be low, but you are not
Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, says many people are taking jobs, shall we say, out of their field, these days.
One woman, with a degree in early childhood ed, ran and hid when some colleagues came into the movie theatre where she was working.
Almost everyone getting laid off is ratcheting downward when they do find work. Even that woman’s movie theatre job disappeared.
Don’t think of it as stepping down the career ladder—think of it as hopping off altogether.
When you go to an interview for something better, just say you did what you had to—and you will do what you have to help their company and make it a success, too.
