Tuscaloosa Public Library Holds Career Fair

We often hear of people falling in and out of love with another person, but today, I once again fell in love with my job!

I attended a career fair at the Tuscaloosa Public Library, which was designed to give middle and high school students the opportunity to get up close and personal with people in various fields.  The 14 representatives of possible occupations included attorneys, a state representative, cosmetologists, an executive director for a non-profit organization, an environmental specialist, and various others. 

As each student sat before me, I was able to tell them about my job, the glamorous components and the not so glamorous components. Meanwhile, one theme constantly resonated: I am a servant.  My main priority is to gather information, verify facts,  and present my research to the community.

When I looked at it from the point of simplicity, I fell in love with my job all over again.  There’s nothing that I enjoy more than helping others.  I love being the source of an occasional laugh, an aide for helping one make it through his work day, and the go-to person for information on where assistance may be found when a person falls on hard times.

While the TPL’s ultimate goal was to inform students of attainable occupations and to give them the opportunity to network with people who actually work in these fields, the experience helped me to realize that even though I may not always feel like I’m living up to my maximum potential, I am doing what I love, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world…. Add something else to it? Possibly.  Trade it? Not anytime soon.
