While determining what job would be good for me I experience different types of jobs. Worked in a factory for a year after high school and that is when I realized that a factory job was not for me. During the next few years worked for a couple of different companies, however never had job satisfaction (peoples feelings about different aspects of their jobs; how well one likes a given job, depending on such factors as pay and coworkers) (Specter, 1 996) (Duffy, 2005) (Peg.

Decided what the heck, knowing I did not want to work in a factory and that I wanted to work in the business environment I thought I would give it a shot I finally found something I enjoyed and had contact with a variety of people.
When started in this field I was not familiar with any area Of the transportation business. Found out really fast that no novo days are the as and some new challenge is always popping up. About two years ago I started taking classes to learn more of the management side of the business field and my goal was to be office manage some day.
While I still have many classes in front of me I have achieved HTH goal, starting with the new school year I will be office manager. I feel I have strong work values (what brings you the most enjoyment of distractions in a career or job. (Duffy, 2005) (Peg.

During the school year I do not have a lot of leisure (time free from work duties that may be spent in recreational activities of one’s choice. ) (Duffy, 2005) (Peg. 277) However, during the summer I only work 30 hours and have off on Fridays.
To me this is important because it gives me precious time y fame ill.
