Account Manager in La Jolla:
"With I had taken some graphic design courses."
Start early, and get your foot in the door with a company you can grow with. Especially in large cities, sales jobs are competitive and 99.9% of them require previous experience.

Women we're still in the dark ages; do not take less than a man would for this job. It's a lot of work and you are licensed professional. Except nothing less than equal pay for equal work.

"Engineering is the way to make instant $"
My customers and my company need engineers, there simply are too few. They are paid top dollar and will always be in short supply.
