I’ll get right to the point – if you’re unemployed or “employed but looking”, or maybe you’re in a position where you know you’ll need a job soon and would like to get a jump start on it (exiting the military comes to mind), then you’ll find this post interesting.
Find a job – $5K per month
The site you’re at right now, www.60kjobs.com, is completely focused on detailing jobs that require neither a college degree nor extensive experience. We believe jobs such as this are numerous and even well known…there’s nothing really secretive going on…it’s just that most don’t realize these jobs are available and lucrative. If you’re in the market for a $60K per year job…$5K per month…then you’ve come to the right place.
Find a job – couch potatoes need not apply
The first thing to consider is the amount of work you’re willing to put in. $60K is a respectable annual salary and you’ll be expected to work hard for it. Nothing on this site will tell you that you can work 10 hours per week and make $60K. I’m sure there are jobs out there where that is possible, but you won’t find them here. The jobs we outline will require you to take it seriously, work very diligently, probably work more than 40 hours per week, study, learn, network and connect. If you can do all of that, and do it well and with focus and ambition, you can land that $60K job. Do it half-assed, you may still land the job and maybe even be successful, but you might not quite make the $60K mark as quickly as intended.
Find a job – a few to whet your appetite
So what kind of jobs fall into this category? There are quite a few, you’re undoubtedly familiar with most of them, and they can be obtained just about anywhere. The ones we have documented so far are:
The ones we are working on run along the lines of Waiter/Waitress, Real Estate Agent, Sales, Plumber, Mechanic, Writer, Webmaster, Truck Driver, Physical Trainer, etc, etc. All of these, and more, are “works in progress” for us, so be sure to check back from time to time or join our mailing list.
How does one go about getting a job such as this? Well, the above guides outline the skills needed and provide a 90 day approach to training for, networking for and landing the job, and then excelling in the job and even branching out a bit at times, to attain that $60K ($5K per month) goal.
A quick look at each of the jobs listed below:
UNIX Administrator – this is a job that entails a thorough understanding of not only computers, but UNIX computers, networking and maybe a little scripting thrown in. Can you do that in 90 days? Certainly. Will you be the “best” UNIX admin around after 90 days? No, you’ll be entry level but here’s the fun part…$60K is actually a very realistic expectation for entry level UNIX administrators.
Bartender – we all know what a bartender does. What’s important is to know what a great bartender does! There’s far more to just making drinks. Understanding your customers, making GREAT drinks, making the RIGHT drinks, recommending the BEST drink, etc, etc all go into a great bartender. To augment your salary and tips, consider starting a Mobile Bartending business as well!
Auto Sales – yeah, we know these guys too. Erase the slimy “car salesman” image from your mind and consider the income possibilities if you pursue this and become really good at it. There is a practically unlimited upside to this profession for those that take it seriously and have the best interest of the customer in mind. Don’t count this out because you’ve had a bad experience…in fact, make that bad experience a motivating force for you to jump in here and do well!
Ok, that’s a little bit of info for you – feel free to look around our site for more. As always, we welcome your thoughts and comments and success stories.
And as always…enjoy!!
