As my son prepares for college, I’ve read dozens of brochures about career fields and all the great things one can be. While I am a college graduate and do have a good career, I think the university may have failed in truly preparing me for my place in the workforce. I understand the skills required for someone with my degree, but nowhere in the pamphlet about academic choices, did they include a picture of a woman racing into work with a bag of potatoes in one hand and a crock pot in the other. While duty calls, so do the hungry bellies of our families and we have learned to do what we can, where we can and when we can. My friend Kelly has figured out how to work and cook at the same time to meet the demands of the workplace and her family. I’m certain when she chose her career path it didn’t include defrosting roasts in-between assisting clients.
