Careeer plan.

Did you get the memo this weekend that this blogspot blog is now a straight owned blog?  Well it is!  And there is a pretty new design to match!  I think that is pretty much all I have up my sleeve as of now.



So let's talk career.  Although I am 22, a bunch of my friends have graduated college and I myself have less than a year left before I am done.. it still feels weird to think of any of my friends having a career.. let alone my own.

Regardless.. it makes me feel like an adult to think of it.  Thus when I saw this link up with From Mrs. To Mama.. I knew that I would follow suit and answer the questions myself.


1. Tell us what you studied in college. Is your job now related to what you studied?
Let's see.  I studied elementary education.  I studied interior design.  Now I am studying (and completing!!) graphic design.  With that being said, I hope to eventually own a freelance design firm that takes on projects like invitations, logos, programs, websites and the likes.  So we are talking small time.  But I am a fan of administrative work as well.  In fact I hope to find a job here in Georgia doing just that... except medical assisting (think scheduling appointments, dealing with patients and the likes).

2. Tell us what your everyday job looks like.
Right now? I get up when the dogs can't sleep anymore (roughly 10).  I watch TV until Rob comes home for lunch.  Then I run errands, clean, do homework, whatever until he gets home around 4:30.  Then basically I do whatever my husband has planned the rest of the night.  ;) Run more errands, watch TV, etc.

Last week I did get in for my spousal preference appointment, so I am hoping I can sign the forms this week and get the ball rolling on finding a good job in the government system.  Fingers crossed!

3. Do you have a picture of you at work? Show us.
This picture is from my last job as a receptionist!!

4. In 10 years, what do you see yourself doing? Same thing? More? Tell us.
I see myself being a mom.  Our goal is that when we have children, I don't work.  I wouldn't mind doing some freelance stuff on the side here and there.  But ultimately I want to do what my mom did.. raise my children.

5. Tell us what you have learned, and what {if any} recommendations you may have for those looking to go into the field you are in. 
I've learned that going to school online sucks.  Haha.  I'm learning about as much as I make myself learn.  Luckily my field is really one where you teach yourself your skills more than a class can teach you.  With that being said... I would learn way more if I were in a classroom.  If you are looking to go into graphic design.. I suggest you be original.  Learn and invest in Adobe products.  Have motivation.




Always,
Amanda

  1. Who are you doing your online graphic design stuff through? That's something that has always interested me but I've been too scared to try it lol. Also, being able to stay at home with your kids is awesome and you will love it when that day comes :)

  4. Jenn told me about your blog so I had to come over and say hi. I was a young wife too (and a teacher until we had our boys) now I stay home with them and I love it (but do photography on the side). I'm excited to read more about you, I love connecting with other military spouses!

  5. Graphic design is a field that is very unfamiliar to me, that's for sure! I'd be way out of my comfort zone, but it's good that you like it! My ultimate 'career goal' is to be a stay at home mom, too.
