Hi everyone! As always, your advice is really appreciated~! After getting a BS in Biology in college, and working 3 years in both biotech and academia, I am set on a career switch to BUSINESS, which is what I'm really interested in (I did minor in Business at university but somehow didn't consider the switch then)! I just took my GMAT and did GREAT (yay!) so I'm going to apply for either a MBA or accounting school, but until then... I've told my boss that my last day at my current science research job will be August 1st (there's really NO mobility there, a lady was promoted only after about 10 years! I think I was so excited about the research field before that I kinda lost track of that but moving on...), but so far all the jobs I've found require AT LEAST 1 to 3 years of retail experience! I have previously worked summers and part-time at cafes and stuff but it's been so long I'm not sure I should even put those on my resume! I've thought about applying to retail positions but friends have told me customer service experience won't really help me... I'm completely set on resigning my current job (honestly, for various reasons, I CAN'T stay anymore. I've tried to resign a few months before but my boss told me that "I have an obligation to him and the job..." and refused to accept my resignation! Oy...), but my options so far are these: 1) take business classes and work part-time, and 2) somehow find a full-time job that requires experience I don't have. I'm staying optimistic though, or trying to! I guess I'm facing a quarter-life crisis here, no joke, LOL! Sorry this post is much longer than I thought it would be. Any recommendations, advice, thoughts are very much appreciated!! TIA!
