For a while there, I was frustrated because I couldn’t find a job. Either I was over qualified, didn’t have recent paid experience, or it didn’t work with our schedule. Then in March, a friend told me about a local technical college that was hiring notetakers for their Disability Services Department, to take notes for disabled students. This is a little different situation than when I did a similar job in Fresno. Then, I didn’t introduce myself to the student, I just sat in the class and didn’t talk to anyone. In this new setting, not only do I get to interact with my student, I am encouraged to participate in the class. To be honest, I am really loving this job. It pays well, the schedule is flexible (I choose which classes I am available for), and I am actually learning alongside my students! I couldn’t ask for a better fit. For the time being, at least. God provided in a way I didn’t expect, but turned out to be the best thing for me right now. My supervisor says that there aren’t a lot of notetakers available during summer session, and they typically are short handed. She asked me today, “How does 30 hours a week during summer session sound?” I think that sounds pretty great. 10 weeks!!
