I'm Sarah. Unemployed, college degree (BA Liberal Arts), and I have not had many jobs because I was in school so long working on my degree.
I'd like to find something besides retail. I've done that and worked in a restaurant for minimum wage...My lack of jobs is probably holding me back plus I don't have a graduate degree yet. I would like to get my master's in psychology.
Is there somewhere I can take the Myers-Briggs (or something like this) for free? Would the library have this? I took it back in college as I remember.
I need to make more than $8/hr. I am married and we have a dog. I have been looking on craigslist, but when an ad wants a cover letter along with your resume, who do I address it to?
I would like to try my hand at reception/front office in some kind of medical office because I enjoy helping people, and I understand medical things and like being in that environment. Lots of nurses in my family so I am used to being around hospitals and what not.
I don't mind doing internships; just anything to get in the door. Psychology was one of my minors, along with Journalism and English. I don't know how to do excel. I am more than willing to learn any needed skills; I could use an update in that respect.
