Nothing in Life Worth Having Comes Easy

When searching for a new job it’s ok  to be hell-bent on landing a position that is everything you’ve ever wanted in a job.  But sometimes we have to remind ourselves that we can’t always get what we want…right away.  Hard work and determination is what gets people far in this world.  Just ask former immigrant Jose Jimenez of Salt Lake City, Utah.  He came to this country 10 years ago and took on a janitorial job at online retailer Overstock.com.  With broken English but a fighting heart, he managed to work his way up to become a junior quality assurance engineer in the company’s IT department.  If you think you don’t have what it takes to endure a long road of long hours in odd jobs just to prove you’ll do whatever it takes to get the job you want, read Jose’s inspirational story, Journey to a better life: From janitor to IT worker at Overstock.com on the Salt Lake City Tribune’s site, then visit Job.com to sign up to receive jobs and educational opportunities to help point you in the right direction as you embark on your own career path.
