I’ve served my country, nearly have a bachelors degree in philosophy. Have an associates degree. I’m excellent at leadership and would like to find a job that I am able to prove that.
I suggest that you "strategically volunteer" for the job position that you are targeting with a non-profit. You don't have to say that you aren't getting paid nor do you have to disclose that you are not working full time. The advantage is that you can then add it to your resume to position yourself as "qualified" for the targeted job position.
Thank you for your service.
Leadership is very broad, are you interested in leading people/teams or processes/programs?
Employers look to what you have done and how you have evidenced your interests in their field, industry or positions that they need.
If you have a particular interest you should do some informational interviews to better understand entry level jobs in that field.
If you don't consider doing an assessment to explore various areas.
Your degree shows an employer you can write and think, now you need to be able to explain in a resume and interview how you want to use your skills and interests in their field.
There are resources on this site to support your success.
Wow! Philosophy! I am not sure what in industry you can do with that. How about applying for a job in Purchasing-maybe an entry level job that will not require much experience. There you can demonstrate your abilities and move up the chain.
Have you looked into retail and/or hospitality management? These are industries with high turnover and usually have a simpler process for getting in the door. Something like "shift supervisor" is an opening you may consider.
