Sandra asks…

Is it worth it to take a job as a funeral planning counselor sales job?

I currently work in a fast food type of management job. I was wondering if it was worth it to leave it for a funeral planning counselor sales job?

New Niche Finder answers:

Yes it’s a good job. You are NOT dealing with grieving people as several posters have said. You are dealing with the healthy ones who are estate planning.

And you don’t need to SELL THEM UP to make a good living. Just show them the available options and even if they take the cheapest selections or even cremation you can make a good living.

Thomas asks…

How to write a letter to previous employer to ask for a job back?

I have left my previous job for a better offer from another company. However, I don’t feel like the new job & would like to go back to my old job. Can someome give me a sample letter to ask for a job back from my previous employer?

New Niche Finder answers:

Let me to disappoint you a little. It does not sound like a good idea to begin with. Your old employer knows that you did not like your old job. So in his opinion, you’ll keep looking for a new job anyway. It means that he/she won’t be eager to get you back unless, of course, you’re absolutely irreplaceable.
