Friday's Thoughts and Other Stuff (Employment)

Dear Preppers and Survivalists,

National Library of Ireland

We're Hiring
If you haven't heard, these United States Military is looking for a few good people. They offer great pay, awesome benefits, and a great place to work. Oh, ... It isn't as dangerous as you think.

If you can't handle that, these United States government is looking for a few good people, too. You just need to have a little bit of education or experience to start a great career.

Another group, that's looking for good people are the various trades, such as carpenters, masons, electricians, plumbers, glaziers, and others. You just need to get in the union.

Another career field is the 'municipal services' like water and wastewater treatment plant operators, firefighters, police officers, court and deeds recorder, and ... You'll have to put up with kind'a low pay but a pretty good retirement.

The last one I'll talk about is the repair of industrial equipment, car mechanics, and other 'fixers' of necessary things.They are looking for people, too.

Now, most of these various positions don't require a college education, military, the trades, municipal services, and repair. They require attending either a trade school, completing an apprenticeship, or learning on the job with attending short, specific training thrown in for good measure, and ....

Most United States' government positions will require a degree, such as the regulators, inspectors, enforcement officers, and their managers. Of course, most of positions require at least an associates degree. A bachelors is better while a masters might be required. For some, a doctorate is the minimum schooling required.

Be warned, schooling doesn't guarantee a job. Plus, there are schools out there that soul purpose is to take your money.

With these United States and the world facing the threat of increasing automation, we may have to start our own companies to provide employment for our family.

Now, when I talk about employment, I think about people giving you money for solving problems, providing contact with different people, getting you out of the house and out from in front of the television, and ...

Now, how to be an entrepreneur is complicated, for me.

So, ... You're going to have to bear with me.

First, find a need. It might be a simple need, like providing umbrellas for motorbikes or a complex need, such as providing housing for renters.

Next, start filling the need, as best you can.

Needless to say, learning the ins and outs about taxes, zoning, hiring and firing, banking, safety, legal issues, and many, many other issues can be daunting.

But, ... There is help

Chamber of Commerce
Recently, I went to a presentation from the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City (HCCGKC). Their president, Mr. Carlos Gomez, gave a presentation about some of the resources provided by the HCCGKC.

Of course, ... I'm way over my head, so you're going to have to contact them to find out about these many opportunities.

Needless to say, I couldn't find my local chamber.

But, ...

They might be able to direct to the right place.
