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. :-)

  1. I worked admin for many years and loved it. :)

  2. I loved admin when I was younger, but now I really don't like the admin side of running my own business - would prefer to just create jewellery!
