I Passed

January 30th, 2014 at 03:01 am

I passed! I'm officially a certified professional in human resources(PHR). I've been studying for the PHR exam for weeks, finally took it and passed. This test is like a newly graduated lawyer passing the bar, , at least me any way. Big Grin

In the meantime I haven't been blogging but I've been keeping up with the 52 week challenge.
I started backwards and forward, so I'm on week 48 for saving and week 4 for paying down CC 3 Smile

Unfortunately I haven't found a job, I've been told at least 4x that I'm over qualified. However, I refuse not show my credentials on my resume, I worked too hard for it. I was told to remove my masters and change my position titles. Smh, before I was under qualified and a year later I'm over qualified.

Besides over qualified is an unprofessional term used by employers who really want to say, I'd like to hire you but refuse to pay you what you're worth. I'm cool with making less, if I wasn't I wouldn't apply.

The business is up and running, haven't gotten a client yet but I'm still in start up mode and have to remind myself that successful men and woman such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Oprah all stumbled a few times before becoming successful. Patience.

I'll be rapping up this month's expenses and I spent a ton Frown I turned 40 this month and had a little get together at the house plus it was my turn to host this book club, that ended up being canceled the day before Frown so money wasted. No complaints though.

That's it in a nut shell, if you all have a moment, please review my revamped website and let me know what you think. Please make any suggestions, negative or positive, I've always valued your opinions.

Wine glass charms

It's my turn to host the monthly book lib meeting, and in doing so I realized I do not have enough items, like plates, glasses and placemats. Thank goodness I have been purchasing certain items throughout the year, last year preparing for this event.

Well I decided to do something different and made my very own wine glass charms. I made this far 40 charms, saving me a ton of money. Supplies cost me about $7 vs. the $10 it would cost for 4 charms.

Take a look.

Happy New Year and a n Update

Hello all!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and fill you all in.

This year I graduated with a Masters in Human Resource Management, I was let go in October Frown Right after that I started Kelly's HR Services and enough I haven't gotten my first client, things are moving along. I was able to keep up with the 52 week challenge until November, only because I was let go.

I've applied for a ton of jobs and have been told I am over qualified or haven't gotten a call back. Long story short this was a great year, I can't complain.

I paid off a few credit cards, and only have 3 left Smile hopefully I will land a job or a few clients.

nothing else to report, hope everyone's holiday season was a joyous one.
