I've been applying to some pretty dynamic companies for a few years. I've grown weary of the screening interviews that go famously and include promises of, "I'll definitely pass along your application to the hiring manager!", only to receive a form rejection in response to my follow up email. I've even managed to snag a couple of interviews...with same result.
I seem to be stuck on a receptionist type treadmill because I am very intuitive and pleasant with the public-I really enjoy interacting with all types of people. These are extremely important skills, I know; but I have interests beyond this type of position.
I'm currently pursuing a degree in Literature, Language & Writing, and have developed an interest in Project Management. All this at 52 years old and after homeschooling my, now adult, four sons. I believe it's my turn now!I appreciate my employer (a major health system in my area) for taking a chance on me, since I had been out of the workforce for 15 years. But I'm ready to move on now. I've been there for 12 years! I just need to get in the door somewhere that is not healthcare, which is a dead-end street for non-clinical employees.
