I have two jobs, one technically full time and one part time. My part time day job is as an instructional assistant at the high school working with handicapped students. I've been with the district for about 23 years. My full time (on their books anyway) night job is as a monitor tech at the hospital. I've been there almost 13 years. I have a AA degree, which I got long before No Child Left Behind but now it kept me from having to take some silly test, and my other job I took and ROP class to get, plus on the job training.
I work for JPMorgan Chase. Right now I am a phone monkey with a couple of NASD/SEC licenses, and with some study I will be a licensed broker in May. Still going to be a phone monkey...for now anyway. I talk to people about retirement plans.
On edit- I have not finished college. I've got alot under my belt, want more. Landed in this industry kinds on a dare, been here for 8 years. Suspect I am going to stay and start working on a business degree....maybe LOL....
I have my BS in Psychology and my MS in Special Education. I taught for four years before staying home with the girls.
Wow!! Who knew!!!!! I'm most impressed with higher edimication, especially since I dont have the patience to go further in my lernin'.
I work for a commercial property management company mainly doing the computer drafting, as well as being a problem solver/tenant liason/payroll/keeper of the plans/lover/fighter. I'm your basic property management renaissance man with the ruffled collar to boot!
And I have a BA (heh heh, I said BA) in Liberal Arts.
Do you not necesarlily have to attend college if you want to be a performer? Is there any college or adult program that is focused solely on this profession? I cannot attend any regular university because i wouldnt survive, i visited fullerton college last wednesday and as a special education student there is so much that i actually have to do now in order to qualify for everything next fall and i was so overwhelmed. Another reason im hesitant about college is becuase of the help ive got here in high school (iep team) im not gonna have them in college. Im ever so grateful that im gonna be receiving my diploma in june and yet i dont want it to go waste. Give me your insight as to what i should do, thanks.
