I am almost finished my Master’s Degree in Public Administration. December!
I am currently working as a contractor assistant for a large oil company (You know those things you may find on a beach?!?) I am the oldest peron in my office (43). I dont get much respect. I print when they dont feel like printing their own documents. I file when they dont feel like filing. I do some other things – but the ones that bother me most are the ones they dont ‘feel’ like doing. While they meander through the hallways having conversation. I dont get included in lunches, after work socials or conversations. I could just go on and on …
I want to find work in the education field. I am a New Orleanian and I want to be a part of school operations. School is ever changing around here. I dont want to teach. I want to be a part of making sure scores and monies are correctly being appropriated. I want to be a part of the positive eductional changes that every child in this area deserves. I pay for my daughter to attend school. But not all have that luxury. I know that I can be a positive force in this field. I am of zest, grit, self-control, hope, love, social intelligence, gratitude, and I have a sense of humor!
I feel lost. Job searching is not easy. I worry that my weight will stop me. I want to be more confident. I want to lead. I hate what is happening to me. But I like venting!!
And even though I have made up my mind that I would not … why wouldnt they want to hire me here? Its very demeaning. I have as mucn or more education and experience than the 23 year olds they do hire?!? Oh just forget I said that! Ugh!
Happy Friday! <3 Sending love, hope and joy for the weekend!
