And then I unexpectly became an office assistant

I have a job!

A completely unexpected job. I barely expected to get employed my first semester of freshman year. Inexperienced college freshman don’t get jobs. There are more qualified upperclassmen all around us, after all.

But I lucked out! On the day I moved in, I, by complete chance, met one of the heads of the NU Procurement Office in the dining hall. Later I saw her again at the student employment fair. Some paperwork, some phone calls, some e-mails, and bam: I have a job. A job that no less than 230 people applied for!

If you know me, or my friends, or my career-oriented family, then you know I’m often like this:

So this is quite a stroke of luck for me. Extremely so; I need the professional experience for when I search for future jobs.

Thus, the gaps in my schedule will be filled with filing papers, sending faxes, and answering phones! I apologize in advance if I can’t update this blog quite as often. My goal is, at the very least, once a week! But, naturally, school and work come first.

  1. AH! VY! That’s amazingness, good for you! College jobs always sound fun. I thought about working at the Tutoring Center at my college (to help people edit their papers, etc, I speak some Spanish and could thus really help ESL students in low-level classes) but the head-honcho at the Tutoring Center hates. my. guts. . .with a burning passion. Lol.

    So I could just do off-the-books-tutoring. For like seven bucks an hour. Or maybe charge by assignment.

    BUT ANYWAY, good for you! And once a week blog updates are cool…I just need my weekly dose of comic-induced humor, please and thank you.

    • Ahaha thanks!! Aww… I’m sorry that you can’t get that job, it sounds so super cool! Outside tutoring would work too, though!
      And thanks for understanding!… suddenly my life got a lot busier; it’s almost unbelievable.

  2. Heck Yeah Vy!
    Congrats! You’re very well qualified for the job! I think you can be very professional, which is what an office assistant needs to be, I suppose!
    I got a job in my school’s costume shop! I make masks, sew costumes and organize fabric, etc. I love it! My boss and co-workers are all awesome.
    I hope you’re enjoying Northeastern! I miss your craziness, we’re going to have to catch up during winter break!

    • We totally must catch up! You got a job at a costume shop?! Why are you so awesome? That seriously sounds like the greatest job ever; I’ve ALWAYS wanted to know how to sew! Thanks for thinking I can be professional… it’s definitely a step up from my old job at McDonald’s XD
