Most of my work experience is as a server in semi-fine dining and business casual restaurants. I have also worked briefly in clothing retail. I'm going back to school. I would like to no longer work in the restaurant industry because the late night hours are not conducive to a student's schedule. What "day time" jobs would you recommend based on my experience and also considering that I am paying for my own tuition. Any tips on how to transition?

My compliments to you for having a “can do” attitude.  Self-confidence is an important part of achieving any goal you set your mind to.

After my graduation in industrial engineering it was eight month struggle to find a job at a manufacturing company as a trainee in marketing. Its already three months and I now feel that I really want to work as a production engineering rather than what I'm doing currently. Do I need to start looking a new job or continue working in this field just to gain more experience?
