and was looking for a job.." I overheard him say as I walked past this morning. Not sure what happened with his story...but being he appeared to be heading into work....I think it turned out well.
It made me reflect on my work history...I have been working in Chicago since I was a senior in high school...toward the end of my senior year I answered an ad placed in a friend's high school newspaper for a beginning legal secretary position...no experience necessary.
That was me - I have no experience!!
I remember going for my interview...I was like the cricket in Times Square...being the second eldest of 8 children...we hadn't traveled too far outside of the western suburbs and at my tender age of 17...I know I had never been into the Loop.
But I was hooked. Although the door-to-door commute and the cold, blustery, long winters get me frustrated at times - I still love this City.
