My final blog:
Hello again to all! Well it’s been a busy summer for me with moving, work, and applying for new jobs. I have good news with my adventure of applying for work, and that is a have landed a job with the Department of Veterans Affairs in Madison!! I know in the last blog I wrote I was telling you how much I liked working for the company Crossmark. I like it a lot, working for Crossmark, but with it only being a part time job I needed something more. Crossmark has given me a lot of experience in a short time I had. Even after I got the job at Crossmark in Milwaukee I never stopped applying for jobs. In these times can you really afford to stop looking for that good job? So I continued to pursue a good quality job that I can start a good solid career in, knowing that meant maybe I’d have to move again. Again in these tough economic times can you really afford to limit yourself to one geographical area? My advice is if you can get outside the box and can move try it. Knowing there was a possibility that I’d be moving again I was turned onto applying for Federal work. I applied for Federal jobs in Milwaukee and Madison, with Madison giving me a call to come in for an interview. Well as you can imagine one thing lead to another and bam I got a call with a job offer!! But this is the Federal Government we’re talking about this was a long process to get this job, but in the end it was worth it. So this will be most likely my last blog for MPTC as I will be working full time and going to school full time online. It’s been a short time blogging for Moraine Park, but a great one. Everyone has been really helpful with getting me setup and going with this blog and I hate to see it end with a new semester coming up to blog about. The reason I’m giving up blogging is a fear I won’t have enough time to balance moving again, working, and school. I like blogging it’s a great way to get your side of the story out there and let people know what’s going on here at Moraine Park. For the time being I will be taking online classes this fall through Moraine Park, but ultimately I will probably end up transferring to a technical college down by Madison. Being a traditionalist with taking face to face classes and working full time it won’t be feasible to drive up to a MPTC campus for night classes. But at Moraine Park transferring is another action you can take to help you attain your degree no matter where life takes you, for example me. I’ve heard the transfer process is easy and painless so we’ll see when it comes to that further down the line. Until then I hope everyone has a great fall semester at MPTC. And I’d like to say thank you to everyone for their help, guidance, friendship, and leadership the past year at MPTC, Thank you so much!
