I have to cover reception for an hour every week, sometimes more if the receptionist is away (several people in my office do this when she goes to lunch, we have a roster). I enjoy it. I don’t know why. I mean, obviously there’s shades of my job being so fucking boring that any distraction is good, and any time away from the fucking radio is wonderful, but still, I like said reception shifts.
I love organising things, and writing lists to work through. And there are some monotonous tasks I just dig (however, others make me want to kill myself).
I don’t know what type of jobs I’ll be looking for once I finish up at my current Ed. position. What I’d really like to do is talk to someone about what kind of jobs I’d be suited for, because I know there’s something out there other than writing that I’d love to do, I just don’t know what it is.
Anyone have any suggestions about who I can talk to? I’m not looking for some clueless 29-year-old recruitment officer with a fucking HR degree. I’m looking to discuss it with someone who has a wide range of experience, who knows what’s out there, and can assess my strengths and weaknesses to give me some good advice. Oh, and someone who doesn’t charge $2500 dollars for said service would be nice.
It’s times like these when I wish with all my strength that I enjoyed accounting.
