I am having no luck in finding a dental assistant position. I have never worked as a dental assistant but I have shadowed a dentist which I know does not count as experience. I tried everything which is searching online and sending my resumes, going to offices and submitting my resumes and filling out applications, newspapers etc but no body is willing to even invite me for an interview. Its really funny how this world works. So in the real world a lot of things have to do with experience and not really your degree I just graduated with an M.S. and I am desperately looking for a job. I need money desperately. You may be highly qualified and a college graduate but a person with a high school diploma will get the job for the dental assistant position. So now I need to start immediately for the summer since I am totally broke and have two job offers. First is at a front desk at a motel working the night shift for $7.50/ hour and another job at a restaurant as a busser for $8.00/ hr. This busser job can be pretty stressing and humiliating. I think it can bring your morale down since I am supposed to clean up after guests leave and arrange the tables plus sweeping and cleaning. I dont think I will be comfortable with this. I am not sure if I should consider the busser position. What does everyone think? Even the interviewer told me to think twice before starting this job since I am highly qualified for this position. I am trying to decide which one to pick. I am really depressed also. I am thinking the front desk job experience in the motel may help me in applying for a position at a dental office front desk later on. All responses will be appreciated.
