My Career Path
I have been temping for most of my adult career, perhaps the last 15 to 20 years for the most part. A friend of mine introduced me to the concept in my early 20s and I checked it out and never left the industry apart from brief hiatuses. Temping is convenient and allows you to build experience while offering the opportunity to gain experience with an employer and potentially to be hired on as a regular employee. Temping is not always the best way to go but it can be a quick and positive way to land a rewarding job quickly and gain some needed experience while building a career path.
I have a technical diploma in web design from matc ( milwaukee area technical college, December 2012. )
I have a lot of experience in accounting departments. I worked with Daymark Real Estate doing data entry, making check requests, preparing bank deposits, and other general administrative assistant type work. I also worked at Brookfield Woods Apartments in North Carolina which is an apartment complex they owned. I worked in the office taking phone calls, showing apartments, collecting rent payments, making bank deposits, entering data into Tenant Pro 6 real estate software, and so forth.
I like working on web design in my free time. It gives me a hobby to challenge my mind and continue to grow and development my skills with technology and my general intellect skills through the challenge it provides. I would like to get to a point where I felt relatively proficient with it but I would not say I am there just yet.
Presently I am searching for jobs in my normal career path of administrative, accounting, and/or purchasing roles. I am hoping to hear back about a job in purchasing as I type this. I guess I forgot to mention that I also worked with CarlisleIT in the purchasing department. Working in purchasing utilizes all of my skills from accounting and customer service to data entry and general software skills. I feel like I have been specially prepared for this type of endeavor with the path my career has taken and hope to land a job in this field or similar.
