@Lil02359 Unfortunately, I don't know much about that field. You might want to start with some searches on LinkedIn to see if you can find someone you'd want to connect to. You also might want to try Glassdoor since they have profiles of companies which could provide you with some good information.

@JGiffordMA Before you spend money on a job coach, you might want to tap into your network to see who you know who is working in the field you are interested in. See if you can meet for coffee and pick their brain about what they are seeing in the field and whether your experience would be a good fit.

 @b745718k sounds like you would need to go back to school to become a paralegal. If that's the case, I would discuss your options with the career center at the school. I suggest seeking out a community college to get additional information.

I am wanting to return to the workforce after, being off with a high risk child.

Message 280 of 294

Hello, 

My name is Loretta Carwile. I had a very high risk pregancy in 1998. My child had several medical problems after her birth. I did work some at the school system, after she started school, as a para-educator (sub-aide). I was hired after only 4 months of subing. The school system has budget cuts often. I was hired and rehired 4 times. The last time I didn't go back. I wanted to continue my education. I received an associates of Science, December 2015. My daughter was a junior in high school. I knew she would be needing me to make trips to college and I did not want to get a job right then because I would have to take off for her trips. She is now a healthy Sophmore in College and I am trying to get back into the work enviroment. Please someone give me the chance to prove, I am a good worker. I have references that will back that statement. 

 

I have worked in an office for 10 years. I have worked as a teacher's aide for 7 years. I have an associates in Applied Science. I have several certificates including: Receptionist, Data Entry Operator, Integrated Office Skills, Medical Receptionist, Office Assistant, Hospital Admissions Specialist, and Electronic Health Records Specialist. 

 

I am looking for any day shift or at home work.
