"Gwendolyn New Beginning"
Organized by: Gwendolyn McNeil
Hello, I'm Gwendolyn,
I have worked all my life. When I was a teenager, I worked for Washington, DC. Public Schools for two teachers as a teacher assistant. Also, I worked for restaurants as a busgirl, line server and sometimes dishwasher. I went into the Federal Government, then Private Industry, working in Office Support, Accounting and Management positions. Recently, I was out of work for awhile but on my own, I became a professional personal assistant, event planner and worked temporary assignment jobs. This past Christmas, I worked three (3) temporary part time jobs to try and equal to one(1) full time job. I keep applying but as we all know the job market. I do get interviews. Throughout my career I have always moonlighted, especially after the second job, I would hold during the Christmas time.
I am beginning to receive offers from the U.S. Government of options to retire soon but I am not ready to go to pasture . I still have more work to do and commitments to my family, me and to this country. If only I could get one full time job. I'm hoping the company that kept me on after Christmas, will go from Part Time to Full Time and increase the salary with benefits.
I really need help in paying my bills so, I don't loose my personal belongings and family memories to AUCTION, very soon. If I had a Full Time job, I could get my New Beginning. Also, it is vey hard to ask people for help. Don't get me wrong, I really, appreciate everything everyone has ever done for me. I was and still am making payments. I can prove my hardship. Do to taking care of a relative who is no longer with us and the job situation I got behind.
So, as you can see I need to get my bills paid to keep my belongings from being AUCTIONED. I need a Full Time Job. I don't want to loose my personal belongings and my family memories. I just want to keep my self respect. My Family and Friends know how important my belongings and memories mean to me.
If, you can help, I really would appreciate it. I have lost some major family members to their passing but I must keep on going. People have asked me, how do you keep going? I want to take care of myself and have self respect. I love to work. I have some more years. I am not going to give up or in yet.
