Starting a 401k, what should I know?

When it comes to starting a 401k, what should I know? Should any work I apply for, offer the option to put money in as I do? Or they will match what I put in. Should I skip any work where they don't offer anything like 401k, retirement or a pension?

Well a 401k is just another retirement fund. What a 401k fund does, is put a portion of your earnings into a savings and your employer will sometimes match it. This way, when you retire, you can use your 401k however you want. 🙂
