|This isn't real work, just facebook and twitter.|
If you've been job hunting, you know these questions - I'm sure. I am employed as an Office Manager for a mechanical contracting company (non-residential). I could tell you all the things I do in this position, but I will just tell you that some days I look at the clock and it's ONLY 8:30am. There are days where the phone doesn't ring, more days where the phone only rings a few times, and rare days where I am swamped with stuff to do. I also happen to be employed by my dad. It's not a bad thing being employed by your family, but it has it's issues.
|I can't actually sleep at work, but I seriously consider it.|
I am a writer. I know this because I write stuff all the time and I've even been published. I tend to write articles, fiction, screenplays, and historical essays/articles. I wrote a non-fiction book, a how-to, on being a ghost investigator called The Professional Ghost Investigator. It's available through your local bookstore and on Amazon. It's not self-published.
|How I feel most days.|
I have an art degree, but I have decided that I'm not out to be an artist as a career choice. I am quite creative and I can draw stuff out for work. I seem to have found a tiny bit of work, locally, as a logo designer. I'm talking a few jobs over the years, very sparse. I'd like a job that would allow me to use some of my creative skills. BA 2D Animation from Joe Kubert School of Art.
I perused the local craigslist to see what's available. Mechanics, cooks, waitress, nursing, receptionist, insurance agent, cable technician, hotel work....Nothing is really striking me. The school district is looking for people, but pretty much nothing starts until August. The city has openings for fire fighters and police officers. Most everything pays less than what I'm making OR I'm not qualified for the position like mechanic jobs.
|What if this is what employers think of my skill level?|
I have non-work skills like sewing, cooking and baking, playing music (bass guitar, etc), knowledge of antiques, traveling, survival skills, bowling a 120-130 average (not the best), and interviewing skills.
Yesterday and today I've started work early...due to boredom. I should probably get back to it.
