I applyed for an Entry level job a few months ago and i passed the online assesment test
But i failed the inhouse assesment test. i cried for days after. ; (
I really want this job badly and they dont allow you to Re apply for 6 months.
So untill then my plan is to do what i need to do and prepare my self.
What classes should i take to get on an Entry level?
I have done office work in the past. i use to be a travel agent.
Any advice would be very helpful.

Ask them? Send a short polite letter to your contact there and explain that you are preparing yourself to apply again in 6 months because this position would mean so much to you and ask if they have any tips to get you where you need to be. Next time, they will remember you too.

@MellowPossum: thats so true. thank you. i was thinking that i should take a typing class and a computer class too. i was wondering if that would be enough to get me on entry level.

@HisNightOwl2014: Entry Level in what? Do you know what part of the in-house assesment you didn’t pass?

@Scheherazade: I’m pretty sure it was the typing part. Im great with customer service.
Im not a fast typer i chicken peck pretty fast lol i know i need to learn to type right.
I dont think i typed in customers policy #s and other information quickly enough.
I was wondering if i take a typing and computer class if that would get me on an entry level?
I plan on re applying to this job after our wedding.
If you fail the in house assesment test they do not allow you to re apply for 6 months.
I applyed in july so i wont be able to re apply till January 2014.
We get married in April so i would re apply before our honeymoon.
The training for the job once you are hired is 20 weeks.

@HisNightOwl2014: You need to be 100% certain, first, that your application was turned down because of your in-house assesment, and not because of another reason.
But as for the classes you need to take? Yes. Take a keyboarding class, and probably a PC Applications class as well… a Marketing/Business class couldn’t hurt, either. I learned more from my “Business Report and Memo Writing” class about the real-world than any other class I ever took. You should be able to at least touch-type before you’ll be hired for most ‘entry level’ stuff involving computers. There are also several websites where you can practice your typing skills, but actually taking the class will be something you can document.
Are you getting another job in between now and your wedding? If you can take a full course load at your local community college, then do that and brush up your skills this next semester. (You can do 16 hours only going to class two days a week.)
I agree with the PP as well. Writing a short letter will do marvels! Please, please, though – leave out the bit about ‘I’ll be reapplying after my honeymoon!’ they won’t want to know about that. 🙂

@Scheherazade: Thank you so much!
Yes i know it was on the typing part of the reassesment test.
While i was taking the test all the customer service questions seem pretty easy.
There were multiple choice questons on how you would reply to the customer.
When it came to typing in ppl policy #s thats where i stumbled ; (
Iam all signed up at my local community college for the fall.
I just have to pick my classes. my major is office administration.
Im going to take the typing class and a computer applications course first.
I was thinking that would help me but i just wanted to make sure i was not missing any Other courses that would benefit me in meeting the requierments of entry level jobs.
When i re apply for the job i will add the college courses to my resume ; )
And no way i would tell them im going to re apply after our honeymoon ; )
