A change of pace (and of jobs).

Rin (aka Nire) Rin (aka Nire)
I've decided I'm going to look around for a new job. I'm well-liked by my coworkers and known for being a reliable, hard worker, but the pet shop is basically a case of "too much bullshit for not enough money" anymore. I'm going downtown with a friend sometime soon, so I figure I'll start looking there. Downtown Philadelphia has a lot of places to choose from - book stores, art supply shops, even sex toy shops (and yes, I'll be asking there, too).

I'm kind of nervous, though. The pet place that I've worked for the last four years is my first and only job. Any tips or words of encouragement? Any knockings upside my head, should you feel I deserve it?

Incidentally, if you genuinely care about animals, never work for a pet store - the customers alone will have you seeing red almost daily.

Good luck, be positive and concise in your personal skills and speaking. I hire people who are concise, eager to learn, make an effort to learn a bit about my business prior to an interview and are honest and forthright when I meet them. Hope this helps, I am not sure what to say other then my own experience when I hire new employees.
