Thinking about opening a business - October 5th 2009, 04:04 AM

Im trying to get a job that works for what I want to do. But in this economy its hard to get a specific job. I am working on a plan to start my own business, but first I need some professional experience. I want to open a dog day care and I want part of it to be a grooming salon, unfortunately I have no experience actually grooming dogs (unless you count bathing, brushing and nail trims on my own dog). I also don't know anyone in the grooming business and haven't found a groomer looking for a job that I could just hire (though I have just started looking). I am going to apply at Petco for a groomers assistant position but I have applied for other positions there and never heard back from them. Most of the other grooming places around here are just local and I don't really see why any of them would be hiring in this economy. I can't afford classes, besides there aren't any in my area and online classes don't provide any hands on experience. Any suggestions? I have thought about just moving forward with my business plan and only offering what I know how to do until I can get a groomer, or some training myself, but that path would cut out some potential profit and leaves a loose end in my business plan. I'm just thinking "out loud" here. Any suggestions are welcome.

I would say if you have to, bug the hell outta Petco, or talk to the main guy/gal in charge and explain your case. In this economy, you have to let employers know that you REALLY want a job and sometimes that requires getting in their face (but not too much, now!)

Good luck with the job hunting!!!
