Oh, the places I'm looking to go...
In 1998, I earned a college degree. It was in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. After graduation, I promptly went to work for a non-profit organization helping at-risk youth. A year later, I gave birth to our first baby. Since then I've worked a few part-time jobs but my main role has been caring for my kids. In one month however, everything will change. All three of my children will be in school. Five days a week, seven hours a day. So, I'm looking for a job.
I can write. I can edit. I can answer the phone and organize things. I know how to use a computer and get along with people. I know how to drive, and I can even dress like a professional. I'm not sure I'm ready for a full-time position though, and the thought of teaching public high school (like I was trained to do) is a bit intimidating after all this time. I just want to use my brain and my gifts and earn more than a high-schooler -- and still be home when my kids get off the bus. Is that too much to ask?
I don't think it is, but this job searching thing has not been fun so far. And that's where I'm at tonight.
Do you wanna hire me?
