What advice do you offer to professionals who are switching fields?
"Before you make a career change, you should make sure it's the right decision for you and your immediate support system. You will often sacrifice years of experience, which can make you underqualified and forced to begin your new career at an entry-level position when you are looking for an established, career-level compensation package. If you decide to switch fields, follow your heart and find a career path in which you have a passion to grow." -Chris Elmore, Sr. Manager of Recruiting Initiatives for Sam's Club and International Support
Can you offer any advice on how to best network?
"My idea of networking is to seek individuals who have skills and competencies that you need to develop. These skills and competencies could either be to further your career or get better in your current job. Consider this as an opportunity to learn from each other and you will make a strong connection with the person and grow your network." -Mandar Thakur, Sr. Recruiter – ISD

How do I save more on Jet?
Adding items with a purple tag to your cart will lower the price of other items, so getting something like toothpaste will save you money on other stuff like cereal and paper towels.
Why does adding an item with the tag lower the price of items in my cart?
Items with the purple tag can be packed and shipped with other items in your cart. It costs us less to ship multiple items together, so when you add items with the tag to your cart, you pay less.
Why does opting out of free returns on an item lower the price?
The cost of a potential return is built into the price of items you buy online. When you opt out of free returns on an item, we save that cost, so you pay less.

We offer free 2-5 day shipping on orders over $35, faster 2-day shipping on thousands of everyday essentials, and free returns on almost everything within 30 days. Orders under $35 are subject to a $5.99 shipping fee, and items shipping as freight may take longer than 5 days to arrive. Learn more about our shipping policy here and our returns policy here.
