I have a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations, which I obviously didn't go that route if I'm working in Accounting.
I have to dress up every single day of my life. Each man has to wear a suit and tie everyday!! Boo!! No casual Fridays for me.
Good luck in your job search. Why not start at the bottom and work your way up at a company? I think once you get your foot in the door, you are allowed to kind of show your stuff and prove yourself, that way you can move up quickly. I highly suggest going back to school!! I know that would be tough, but so many colleges offer night classes and online classes so you can fit it in your schedule.
My problem is that when I do start working I will be 45 years old. And I will not have worked at ALL outside the home for 25 years. So I won't have any work experience.
I want to hear what kind of jobs people have to see if I would be interested. I know I like to help people. I like to be on the computer. I like it so much my DH gets jealous and calls it "your boyfriend"
. I like to fill out paperwork and enter data. I figured with being home so long I would need an education.
