At the tail end of that two months, and with just a few weeks left in the timeframe I had set for myself, Rick, the public relations director I had met, responded. He had a PR consultant/contractor position that was coming available in the next few weeks. It was a 9-month contract with no benefits, and once the 9 months was up, I’d be out the door. Oh, and he was telling me about this, but really he didn’t think I could handle it, because it was an in-the-trenches job that was demanding and typically required a little more experience.

Volunteer work, perhaps 1 hour per month beginning in the 5th or 6th grade, or at least once-a-year in a community service project. It should be face-to-face actual helping someone, like serving food at a soup kitchen, taking blankets to a shelter, visiting other children on a hospital burn unit and reading to them, or adopting a family at Thanksgiving or other holiday and providing groceries.
Electrician for 15 years. I’ve hated it but I have a wife and 4 kids that I’ve had to provide for. My wife is going back to the working field after being a stay at home mom for the last 8 years. She’ll make enough that I’m finally pursuing real estate which is a career that has interested me for a long time.
Before getting a good job, everyone needs to try many other jobs. To me, one of the best moments to try initial careers is student time. Indeed, this is the best period in human’s life to absorb knowledge and get experience. For some reasons, I think students should take a part-time job. In my opinion, part-time jobs have a lot of advantages. To begin with, they help us become independent and responsible, so if you do not want to live off your parents the whole life, looking for a temporary job is the best option. Furthermore, due to part-time jobs youngsters can learn how to cooperate and get along with people. On the other hand, part-time jobs are often criticized because they distract students from studying. I would say that working at a part-time job is a great experience because it helps people realize that money does not grow on trees.
