I'm linking up with Helene & Sarah for #TotalSocial because it's been a while since I've done a linkup and I'm curious about what other jobs bloggers have:
I work at a university, which it pretty vague when I tell people that. I work in an office made up of two people, including myself. We handle graduate students with the admissions process as well as any problems that happen during their program. Basically, I answer phones all day, advise students, respond to a ton of questions, and send a lot of emails. While it may sound somewhat boring/monotonous. I do enjoy it. It's the only full-time job I've ever had, really. I started when I was in grad school and have been here ever since. (No wonder I'm desperately trying to get out!).
What I like about my job is the fact that I get to meet a lot of different people from around the world. Even though we are a small school, we have students come to us from many different countries. Since I'm their first point of contact, I'm usually the one they end up asking for help or simply waving hello to on campus.
We're on summer hours right now so I work from 8-4 which is the BEST part about summer here. A lot of people ask if I have summers off because I work at a college to which I just laugh and say absolutely not.
While this may never have been my dream job, or even what I went to school for, I'm glad I ended up where I did. Of course, I'd love to be a sports broadcaster or work for a sports team, but we can't go back and re-do those four years of college. I mean, I could go back, but those student loans I'm still paying off scream DON'T DO IT!
Do you love what you're doing right now?
