Legal Assistant, Immigration

Pros: Pretty interesting work, I live 5 blocks from work, I have have the.best.boss.ever. (obviously huh since I'm on here all day long during work hours )

Cons: I should be getting paid more, and I probably could if I went to look for another job, but I've been with my boss for 6 years and I feel a sense of loyalty. Probably because she is seriously the best boss ever. I dont hate going to work in the mornings.

transaction coordinator for a general equipment leasing company.

I love my job. It's excellent pay and a great location to everything. It's very stressful and chaotic at times but it's also a lot of fun.

The only thing I don't like is the benefits aren't that great. The health insurance is the worst I've ever had and they dont' give us a lot of time off compared to other companies I've worked for.

i'm a student right now, but i work security in the dorms here. i sit at a desk and check people's ID cards, register their guests, and tell drunk people to fuck off.

pros: i can do homework while i'm sitting at the desk. uh...i make money.

cons: i hate college kids. the majority of them are spoiled bratty rich kids. and they like to use the emergency exit doors, thus setting off the alarms.

Legal Billing Assistant

Pros: The people I work with have come to be some of my dearest friends. The work is fairly easy, and it's twenty minutes from home. After being out of work as long (almost an entire year back in 2002) I guess another pro is I'm lucky to have a job at all. My boss is great to work for, too. Very laid back (most of the time!) guy.

Cons: No benefits , and it's SO not what I want to do with my life.

I had a group of children with me at the swing set when he tore through the chain link fence. He struck five of us killing two......a girl and a boy. Another boy and girl were injured as was I.

Right now I'm a student (Fashion Design). I will be done with school this coming January. Then I'm going to follow where my heart really is and
continue college to become a teacher.


I remember seeing the news footage right after it happened...it was horrible. I can't imagine what it must have been like to be there and see those poor little kids. I can't forget the beautiful little girl, Sierra, from all the pictures of her shown on TV and in the papers.

Sierra was a very cool little person as was Brandon.
I think about them everyday.

Health Educator for the City of Long Beach Health Department


Pros - I enjoy teaching tenants about Lead Poisoning and keeping their kids safe. And, I also enjoy going out to 4th grade classes teaching the kids how to keep their home environment safe and healthy.

Cons - my time is split between two HUD funded programs, Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes. And, because I have to meet the tenants when they are available, it means working late sometimes and on Saturdays. Also, since both programs are grant funded, my job may end in October 2007.

Sept - May: I'm a full time college student, part time computer HelpDesk technician (20 hrs a week), and a TA for Profs teaching the Research Info Tech courses (an additional 4-17 hrs a week).

end of May - early Sept: I'm a full time computer tech (40 hrs a week, min).

I also babysit and housesit for my rich aunt and uncle who sometimes pay more per hour than both of my other jobs, combined. Sad. When I'm REALLY desperate for cash, I join my boyfriend's shovelling crew and move massive amounts of snow during the wee hrs of the morning (midnight - 7am). That is the worst job ever!

pros: these jobs allow me to be fully independent from my family (I pay all my own tuition, utility bills, food, clothes, rent, fun, pets, transportation, you name it). My tech support job includes a LOT of troubleshooting over the phone (like calling the Dell help hotline kinda thing) so I've had lots of customer service and communications training that will look spiffy on my hypothetical resume.

cons: most people I know my age (20) don't work half as much as I do so I have hardly any time to study or be in any clubs or activities like everyone else. I miss doing gymnastics, a lot.
