I know everyone is reading the boards at work right now, so I’d like to ask you to think back……. What was the worst job you ever had? Had did you get there? Do you still work in the same industry?
Mine: I did not feel particularly smart enough (for lack of better words) to finish my nursing degree when I was 18 yrs old, and being pushed by my family to get a degree in 4 years. So, I changed to hotel and restaurant management. My adviser told me I could work at fancy hotels, maybe even a cruise line! LOL how naive was I?! Post graduation, my life as a restaurant manager consited mainly of apologizong to angry customers, unloading food deliveries into freezers at 5am, staying to wash dishes by hand after the dishwasher broke till 2am, working 60 hr weeks but getting paid for 40, and dealing with dishonest employees. Of course there were some perks to the job, but overall I felt so miserable and unfulfilled that I went back to school to become a teacher! I always loved training, and I see teaching as an extention of that. the hours are A LOT easier to swallow, and since I will soon be a two income household, I don’t mind the pay cut. I have a strong desire to have children in the next few years and I look forward to having my weekends free 🙂 I am almost done with my classes, I start student teaching in January and will be ready for a real teaching contract Aug 2014.
So now tell me your story! Im so anxious to hear. I have gathered from previous threads there are a TON of smart, successful, educated women on here!!!!
