View Full Version : Looking for work

11-05-2003, 12:10 AM
I am looking for an office job. But it seems all the open office jobs I see want 2 years of experience or 2 years of College. Which I don't have yet. The problem is I was in a car accident and can't work the manual type of labour I was able to before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Might seem like a pretty common answer, but try Telus as a CSR.
You will have to know something about phones or computers however....

Its not really and "office job" but you may want to try a bank, start off as a teller.
