- Campaign manager for a state senate candidate
- Director of marketing for a college athletic program
- Publications manager for a sports betting business
- Substitute teacher for middle school mathematics
Okay, the last one was kind of a long shot. I haven't taught in a classroom in nearly 30 years. It's just that the schools here are sorely lacking in math teachers and the kids deserve the best education available. It's nothing I'd want to do full time, but if I could fill in now and then, it might be a win-win situation.
I'm still waiting on a reply regarding the editor/technical writer position I interviewed for last week. I was told that I did well on their written test and my portfolio was impressive. If I were in my 30's, I'm sure I would get the offer and I would take it. The question I have to ask myself is, "Will this take me all the way to retirement at age 65?"
I'm getting a bit old for job-hopping. But that doesn't mean I'm making "job security" my top priority either. I've never really had it, and I'm not sure I believe it exists. What I would like is something I'll feel passionate enough about, or that will intrigue me enough, to keep me excited about going to work each day for the next decade. With the exception of substitute teaching, all of the positions I've responded to have an element of that.
It will be interesting to see who comes back first with an interview request.
