I went to school and got a bachelors in Professional Aviation Flight Technology. I thought all I wanted to do was be a pilot. Once out of school, I realized that flying full time is not for me. I realized that I really enjoyed the logistics side of aviation. I'm hoping to try and get a job involved with Supply Chain. I'm told I'm a risky hire. How do I get a business to take a chance on me?

Avery Dennison, ADP have responded.
