Discussion 34: What are you looking for?

Job Club Heart of Texas, Job Search | 67 comments

Most people are looking for work because they are in need of money. Many people look for a job because they want to explore new experiences and find themselves. Some people look for a certain type of job because its fashionable (i.e. interior decorating. photography, etc.)
Reality is that an individual needs to look for a job that fits their individual personality, their family’s needs and one that suits their skill level. Money should be the last thing on your list.
Money is simply a pacifier, it can only get you so far. As human beings, our work should mean more than a paycheck. We should feel successful and confident in our choice. So tell us, what kind of job are you looking for? Any specifics? Why do you feel like this job will suit you?

  1. tommyharper

    I am looking to get back into post secondary technical education. I like helping people learn new skills and advance their career goals.

  2. ljwp

    Good morning!

    I am looking for an accounting job, because that is what I majored in at college, I am quite good at it and I enjoy doing it – mostly.

    Have a blessed day!

    Linda Parten

  3. Susan Wade

    Good morning everyone, Susan Wade here. I think you look for different things in a job/career depending on the stage of your life. When you are young, sometimes money is the only consideration. For some people, this never changes. Some are lucky to find their “dream job” early on and continue with this course. For others, a change can come with the loss of a job and a change of course. This happened to me when I returned to school and my original choice of career in nursing. Now, I would just like a job similar to my last one in a medical office.

  4. Charles Becker

    GOOD MORNING, this is Chuck. Some good thoughts.

  5. Frances Gerick

    Good morning everyone! I’M looking for a position in Payroll. I have over 30 years experience in this field. I love working in this position, mainly because I’m confident in my work and it keeps you busy.

  6. brandyrodriguez

    I am looking for a job in radiation therapy, I have a degree/licensure in that field. I truly enjoy this field and the work and the hours work well with my family schedule. And the money is nice too!! :0)

    Brandy Rodriguez

  8. markbeadle

    Good morning everyone and best of luck.
    I am looking for a job in outside sales.
    Possibly if the job had potential, I would consider management in the restaurant industry. Problem with the
    restaurant industry is that they work you 70-80 hours.


  9. jannpage

    Good Morning, my job is still wonderful and I love it. For those still looking, today’s newspaper had some good listing (for a change). Hope all goes well this week for those that are still looking. (Jann Page)

  10. Michael Dutton

    I am searching for a position to expand my career in Supply Chain Management & Continuous Improvement. Companies internally label this with a variety of titles such as Materials Management, Procurement, Inventory Management, Buyer Planner & Logistics.

    I am a detail oriented person & enjoy the challenge of working with a wide range of individuals from vendors, engineers, marketing, operations & quality to the assembly person to achieve efficiencies in the supply chain and ultimately make or increase the profit margin for the company I represent, while meeting or exceeding our customer’s expectations.

    My work history & previous success demonstrate competence in this career choice. I look forward to learning & growing with a new company.

  11. Jeffrey Gregoire

    Good Morning all! I am looking for a job which is satisfying both mentally & creatively. I have had jobs that I detested going to work every day & want to avoid that again, it just does not last. I enjoy the landscaping business from a residential perspective & have done research & found it is in demand now more than ever. Wish me luck in that endeavor. Jeffrey Gregoire

  12. Charles Waddle

    This is probably my biggest problem. Identifying the job I would enjoy. As a retired military officer (flier), I find most jobs lacking in some way. Mostly the thrill of the chase type thing. I guess it was the adrenaline rush I miss.

  13. sharringt0n

    I am looking for a position that will benefit from my skills as a graphic designer with strong experience in packaging, print and pre-press. That will use my expertise in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Companies title these jobs in many different ways: Art Director, Graphic Designer, Graphic Design Production, Preflight Specialist, Communications Manager, Marketing Director, Packaging Specialist.

    I am still noticing an uptick with job listings, every week there seems to be an increase in what’s available out there. We each only need ONE job.

  14. hcharwell

    to be happy with your job would be great

  15. angeladevinney

    I would most like a job counseling adolescents full time. Although I would do counseling full time (with adults, children, or adolescents).

    I was offered a job yesterday and accepted for the position I interviewed last Monday. It is contingent upon the background check (and I have to wait until it comes back). It is not necessarily your standard full time job since it is a “per diem” job, but I am already scheduled for 3 12-hour shifts per week and I am paid an amount per shift and then per callout. I will be allowed to pick up extra shifts when they may come available.


  16. Ron Stratton

    at one time, money was the number one factor. The older I get, the more it is less a factor. I don’t have the financial burden that I had when I was younger so I have a little freedom in being able to do what I feel I’m geared for.

  17. amylynntowery

    I have worked as a supervisor and insurance verification specialist for the last couple of years. My goal is to be successful in my career. I also have the confidence needed to change my career, if given the chance.

  18. ernestinesample

    Hello Everyone, what a great topic. It is very imporant that you love what you do. What happen is that you be at a job at so long that you are just there for a check and that is not good. You must love what you do even if it is a pay cut.

  19. ernestinesample

    Hey Angela, I read your message and I would love to know where you are working. Iam currently going to school to be counselor and I would love to get my foot in the door.Any suggestion?

  20. Victoria

    I am looking for a job in which to use my research, writing, critical-thinking, and analytical skills. Best wishes to everyone!–V. Nimmo

  21. Mac McKnight

    I would say, All the above.
    looking for some thing that I like and pays enough to support my famley

  22. Lawrence LeMay

    I am looking for truck driving or equipment operator. I am very suitable for this job I have done it my whole life and am very good at it.

  23. sheilaparrish

    Hello Job clubbers,
    Sheila Parrish here, I am loved the job that I had and I am currently looking to change my profession. Still in the medical office but on the medical side instead of the business management side. Hopefully the training that I am going through now will be a big success and I will be in that dream job soon.

  24. ioniajones

    I cannot believe that I just lost everything that I had typed! Well, here we go, again. Ionia Jones, reporting; I would like to work in the classroom as an assistant or as a substitute(I applied for the sub job at WISD last week). I worked for 13 years as a secretary, and would love to do that again. I would like to use some of the crafting skills that I have received over these many years and, maybe turn it into a little business venture.

    Getting off the subject for a minute, I read an interesting article about new ways that employers are getting their new employees. Hope that we can revisit that subject on JobClub sometimes down the future.

    I am, also, interested in taking some of the computer training that Workforce is attempting to start up. Will I need to contact someone at the office or is my stating my interest here, enough?

    Good responses this week, see you next week. Have a good one!!!!

  25. debb6

    Hi there to all:
    I loved my job as customer service rep for 30 years in a small office, and moved to Houston.

    Now I am seeking another job
    I am at the age where employment is tough.
    Keep searching…….

  26. Melvin Freeman

    After being out of work for a year I a looking forward to both working & earning an income.

  27. zonagreen

    All the jobs I had in the past were because I had to have money in order to pay bills, not because I enjoyed the job that much. Now I would like to find a job that I really enjoyed doing.

  28. carolynwalter

    Carolyn Walter here. In the days we are trying to survive in, money is an important issue. But, in order to “want” to go to work, you must love your job and get along with co-workers.
    I am confident in the bookkeeping skills I have learned on my own by running an office for our own business. Building everything from ground up. I like the atmosphere in an office. At the same time, since I have been unemployed I have been able to do some crafting and sewing, this is a hobby of mine but I could see it turning into something profitable if I put my items out there to be seen.
    I am confident in the skills I have but am not comfortable in large crowds.
    Hope everyone has a good day and Good Luck in the job hunting.

  29. stantongreer

    I’m looking for something that will let me try teaching math/engineering to determine if it is really a good fit for me.

  30. Loyd Edwards

    IT or Information Technology is my strong suit –

    I’m proficient in computer hardware and computer networking. This includes server side operations and hardware maintanance.

  31. ChaiHo

    I did restaurant, retail store,and manufacture management for the past 25 years. all my jobs I had were very very stressful and long hours . And now i really want to get a full time job that offer me insurance and work no more than 40 hours every week.Still looking for it.

  32. beverlyheaton

    I had worked in banking for 36 years but have been unemployed for almost a year now. I enjoy helping people so any type of customer service position would be something I would be interested in or even a receptionist with secretarial work.

    Beverly Heaton

  33. jbrig

    I see myself as someone who is looking for something that will pay bills for now(I know it’s a poor attitude to have) but hope that I will find something I will be happy enough with to stay with for an extended length. The type of work I would like to find is either working with parts sales or as a service advisor at a car dealership or other service center.

  34. alanmccoy

    Just found out that the post I made did not go thru the 6th. My computer crashed as I tried to reply. (I had my fingers crossed but no go.) I am looking for an office job that allows for growth within the company. In my prior job I was in sales but I also wrote our product marketing ads. I love to write and learn. Don’t really want to say money is most important but right now it is.
