I had just graduated high school and was working at a small home improvement store running the cash register. At this point, I really wanted to work in an office, answering phones, typing and filing Monday through Friday…no weekends for me since I was young and wanted the weekends free. I asked a friend if she knew of any job openings and she said the office next door to her was looking for a Receptionist. I sent my resume, got the interview and was 20 minutes late. I was very shy and quiet and I think they all felt sorry for me so they hired me as their Receptionist…..either that or they were desperate. That was in 1991 and I was 18 years old.
Growing up, you start forming ideas early on about the job that you want to have when you get older. If you ask most children what they want to be “when they grow up,” they will likely rattle off a list of some of the more exciting and well known jobs…Police Officer, Fireman, Astronaut, etc. Early on in my childhood, I thought that I wanted to be an Archaeologist!
