New Job is finally about to start!
Tuesday, March 1, 2011

As some of you know, I have had less than ideal luck with employment in this economy. I was trained as a music educator and finished college to find that there are no jobs for music educators (not full time ones anyway). I've been teaching private lessons and after school enrichment for about half a year, but all that is about to change!

Well, not really, I'll still be doing all of that, but in addition to it I will be working for the Agency for Behavior Resources with children with autism of military families. I just received confirmation that I have a client on the way and I anticipate getting started within two weeks. I did the math, and if I can acquire 3 clients I will be making money comparable to starting teacher pay.

I'll get to really make a positive impact on these people's lives and I get paid for it! How cool is that? It's about time me degree helped find me work rather than keeping me from it!

Thanks all :)

I've managed to negotiate my way to a little higher starting pay (nice to see that music degree being less useless for a change) and convinced the lady in charge to start me with 30 hours instead of the more typical 10 with one child to begin with. This week will be spent training, and then I really get started!
