Dream job - JW

Posted: May 05, 2012

After almost 6 months of being unemployed,I was very lucky this week to find a position that pays an hourly wage. I feel so good about this and it is way more than minimum wage with a company. I want to make this one work out and am very positive about it. It's amazing what knowing what you will make each day can do for your moral. It takes some of the stress off.

Wow! Congratulations! What company will you be working for?

Yes, but it's probably only temporary..... - sm

If it's the same company I work for doing data migration, it is just temporary and set to end in October or sooner. Unless, of course, they get another contract, which would be great because it is truly a dream job!

What exactly is data migration? TIA - NM

Not the same company sm - JW

No it's not the same company sm. I am told they have a lot of work and if there is no work in my specialty, they will put me in the general pool. It will be straight transcription at first and then move to VR. This is the best offer I have had since I was laid off from my $15.00 p/h job in 2008. I didn't know a job like this existed on the internet. I don't even remember applying for this job. I applied for a lot of them and I think that is one clue in getting a job in this business.

My Dream Job
Oct 08, 2012

I was offered my dream job over the weekend.  I don't want to name the company as they were great.  The woman who hired me was terrific.  I know I wasn't their first choice as I got the call on Saturday, could I start right away.  I filled out the contract, printed all the information.  It took me all day Saturday.  I was anxious and excited.  As the day went on I noticed little things that I wasn't told about the platform.  There was no sp ...

Am I In A Bad Dream Or What?
Jan 15, 2013

Suddenly, all of my reports are horrible, the dicators are so bad and the sound quality so low and fuzzy. Somebody please wake me up from this bad dream. Yesterday I had a dictator who was so annoying, when he said "median raphe" and VR put "middle finger," you can't imagine (or maybe you can) how badly I wanted to keep the VR version! I hope this isn't the way it's going to be from now on. This is like the account I had when I first started with MM (then MQ). I thought I ...

Getting Out Of MT - Am I Too Old For Dream Job
May 28, 2013

I will be starting college this fall.  I am no longer going to be in transcription - just can't do it anymore.  I want to be an RN.  After I finish college I will be 40.  Now, I know 40 isn't old, but is it too old to be a nurse?  I feel like hospitals and clinics would want the 20 something nurses who have endless amounts of energy.   ...

Dream Kitchen/office Ideas
Jul 30, 2010

Hi my fellow MTs!  Pinch me I am dreaming!  My SO is building us a new home, and Monday we meet with the kitchen designer/cabinetry dude to layout the kitchen, which will include my office. He was insistent that he build a corner desk overlooking the woods, the best view of the house!  He did not want me holed off in another room of the house, but wants to keep me in the heart of it!  Yes, he has an ulterior motive... preparing scrumptious meals while I work... but thats fine ...
