Lack formal work experience? Explore these jobs and get started working.
Are you held back by a lack of job experience? Miami is a densely populated, corporately inclined, fast-action city that can be intimidating to a job seeker that may not have a resume filled with rich experience. It appears every job offers comes with a caveat that the applicant must have some type of experience before they apply.
Fear not! We’ve come up with a list of job opportunities that typically do not require any formal experience. Take a look below, see what jumps out at you, and start making some dough.
1. Papa Pal
Papa is an on-demand caregiver provider for older adults and families across the country. The senior population continues to grow, especially in South Florida, so this means that Papa in continuing need to expand their Papa Pal workforce.
The best part about working with Papa is that you get to make a real difference in other people’s lives. It’s great to make some money on your own schedule, but it’s even better to truly impact people positively while you do it. Papa Pals help in various ways, including running errands, grocery shopping and light housekeeping. But most importantly, they provide companionships.
Miami can be a busy and intimidating city for the elderly. The traffic is intense, people are everywhere, and all the excitement can be overwhelming. This can dissuade seniors from enjoying the city and keep them indoors. Papa is on a mission to change that and they want your help! Reach out and see how you can contribute and make some money at the same time, no experience necessary. Apply here
Retail stores are a major employer in the United States. Don’t let the headlines fool you, retail is most certainly not dead. In a city like Miami, retail is much more “alive” than people give credit for. Malls are still filled with shoppers daily, and there are some things you just can’t buy on Amazon.
Clothing, for example, is just one retail category that is optimal for in-person shopping. Plus, some people would just rather have the in-store experience or want their product now. So, check out the local malls and internet posting for retail positions. Odds are you can land a gig without having to provide 3 years’ experience and a platinum resume.
3. Fast casual dining
No experience? No problem. Fast casual restaurants are popping up everywhere and they have much more laid back hiring protocol than a typical sit-down/dine-in restaurant. Chipotle started the craze of “building your own” meal and people have taken notice. Most of the jobs are light food prep, cashiers, or management positions.
Miami is a dense city, so there are fast casual restaurants on every block. If you’re looking for a part-time or even full-time job but don’t have a ton of work experience, we suggest you take a look in this growing industry.
The great thing about many sales jobs is that you only need one thing to get hired: willingness to try. Some positions may require passing a test and getting a license, but if you search for “sales job” on google and can’t find an opportunity, you aren’t looking.
So, there you have it. Don’t let experience (or a lack thereof) hold you back any longer. Get out there and get to work!
