After 8 months of applying to a lot of Admin positions I finally got a job! I was so excited. It's in a great area where I wanted to work for a long time. I'm so thankful and grateful for this job. God is good always. I was down to my last of everything and owed all my credit cards and bills. Before I landed this job I was homeless due to an amazing set of circumstances that I won't go into. Now you can understand how desperate I was for a…

What Happend?

I had the perfect job. I was working as a receptionist in a children's clinic, making a decent amount of money. I enjoyed what I did, got myself situated, and tried to keep to myself and get my job done. I had some co-workers who didn't like the fact that I was in the position I was in and found a way to get me out of the job I loved. It's been almost 2 months with no leads to even a decent job and the last encounter I had was a scam. I have…

The choice is in your hands

Two days ago, I ran into an Administrative Assistant who worked at my son's school. She was laid off the same year my son graduated two years ago. She is still jobless and when I asked her what type of job she was looking for she said Clerical in an office. I asked her if she knows how to use Microsoft Office especially Word and or Excel and she said no. I strongly suggested that she focus on upgrading her skill set so that when she applies for…

The most stressful part about volunteering at #Administrativeforfrontdesk&cashier was

Answering the phone the caller I'd transfer them to a dept. That they asked for, the department would hang up on them ,they call back doing this about 3 times a caller .I would give the information they asked for which was correct. I'd ask the department that question and that was the answer. The problem was so many volunteers that when they worked in that department they didn't have all the information. That was the most stressful part of the…

My advice to people interested in working at #Atkinson&Associates as a #OfficeManager ...

They are a great company to work for. As a general contractor specializing in commercial projects every project is different. You get to meet and work with people from different parts of the area. You won't find a better place to work.

Why should it be this hard?

I have been a contractor for many years, although not my first choice to be. I have gained a lot of valuable experience as an Admin and Executive Assistant. I have a college degree. With each role I take on, there is always the chance of being offered the role permanently but there are always budget reasons why the company or department cannot take me on. (I've worked in the pharmaceutical arena where there are many mergers and reorganizations…

Following a dream or money......

I have been drudging through the trenches of factory life for the past 10 years. I saw earlier in life that I enjoyed office work. I love teaching and helping people. I have recently come to the conclusion that I need to be in an office, or tutoring, or something. The question I have is with a record and not being there for so long (yes, I have done secretarial and customer service work), how can I get into this? Any advice would be appreciated.

Office temp companies or job fairs
