31 Day Blog Challenge - Day 23
Day 23 - Your Dream Job
When I was 15-16 and it came to doing work experience at school, I didn't have a clue what I wanted to do, so I ended up doing my work experience in an insurance brokers office. Since doing those two weeks there, I ended up with the admin bug. In choosing what course to do at college, I chose an Administration and Secretarial course. I did end up leaving college after less than a year, but I managed to gain a couple of word processing qualifications while I was there. Looking back now, I do wish that I completed the course. It would have given me the skills to do a bit more than just an admin assistant.
I have always worked in admin ever since my first 'proper' job at 18 and I still love doing it. I would like to find a career in it now though. Although I love admin work, I would love to do it in a specialist field, such as law or finance, or be a PA. At the age of 32 and in our current economical climate, I think this might be a bit of a pipe dream though. The big firms tend to only take on people who are qualified in that field and I don't have that extra experience.
At the moment though, I am a stay at home mum to my monsters and until Noah starts nursery in September it isn't financially viable for me to even consider full time work, so I have a little bit of time to think about it. I am lucky in that I can be more picky in what job I do take, so I don't have to take the first thing that comes along just to pay the bills. :-)
