Vegas

11 Jan

Vegas life can be fun and rewarding but oh so challenging! My interviews are going well and I’m happy to be back on the career path since I quit my “gig” so to speak.

I was working a full-time graveyard shift as a bartender and a cocktail waitress. I know what you’re thinking,”Why would someone with a college degree be bartending?” Trust me, I asked myself that daily. Also, believe me when I tell you that I’m not the only one. The truth is, in Vegas the money jobs are in the casinos. Bartenders and cocktail waitresses make a killing in this city. I was doing that to pay the bills while I went on interviews, but the pay was either less than what I was making at the casino or they just didn’t fit the bill. Well, I got to the point where it didn’t matter if the new job paid as much, I just wanted my career back.

I’m still doing my esthetic work on the side (mainly makeup for photo shoots and waxing), but my full-time job for now is to get back on track. I know I can and I will find the right position for me and I look forward to that day when I accept an offer of employment doing something I have the intelligence and skill set for. While I’m interviewing and applying for jobs I am also brushing up on my social media and blogging skills. I have always loved to write and I love to interact with people, so it comes naturally to me. I’m also passionate about marketing and I have a knack for thinking of ideas to market companies and people but so far the interviews I’ve gone to haven’t seen this full package-yet!

The day will come when I’m blogging about life and work and family (can’t get to the family part until I check off the career box) and I eagerly anticipate that moment. For now, I’m living the Vegas life and hoping for the best.
