Getting to know you - January 19


Recommended Posts

I started working in the family Bowling center at 15

worked there on and off through college

After college worked 3 jobs, Vons grocery store, office assistant

and Bartender in a beer bar (this is where I 1st saw my man :P )

Finally got a real Job as a Letter Carrier for the

Post Office (have never hated a job so much in my life :twisted: )

Started my current job as a loan processor 12 years ago.

so thats it, I am sure one more change will happen

when I get ready to retire.

Alan worked construction since he was old enough to

follow his grandpa and drag along his own hammer :P

At this age, I hope I can remember all of the various jobs I've had.

While in college, I worked as a teacher's assistant and a waitress.

Then, I took about 10 years off to be a stay-at-home mom until all three boys were in school.

Since then, I've been in retail management and office management. I really liked the fast moving pace of retail management but dealing with cranky customers was hard for me. So, I guess I'll stay bound to my office desk until retirement.

Let's see.....

I worked as a camp counselor at the local YMCA when I was 16;

Worked as a secretary for a long-distance telecommunications company when I was 17;

Worked as a teaching assistant for several professors during my college years, mostly in statistics, operations management, and strategic planning areas;

Worked as a research assistant at an institute studying robotics, helped publish a research paper on the future of robotics in the home (oh did those rosy predictions so not happen :P );

Worked as another research assistant to a company helping them devise a sales cost-benefit strategy for a robotic product they had developed;

Worked on the manufacturing floor as a dept. head and a process control person for a couple of companies after that (one really large textile company and one a really small critical care product manufacturer);

Went the self-employment route after that: first doing small project work with my dad in his consulting business, then on my own....lots of different projects happened during those years; ended up doing a lot of grant writing and management consulting in the non-profit world until I had to quit working beginning in 2005.
