I deserve a trip to Cancun! As a Flatbush resident, I commute1 hour 45minutes DAILY to and from work in Flushing, Queens. I work full-time (10am-7pm) as the Coordinator of Career Services at Long Island Business Institute, and in addition, I adjunct on Friday mornings from 9am-12pm. These hours are not included in my 45 hour week. I\'m literally trapped in Flushing Queens Monday-Friday preparing our current students and graduates to succeed in the working world, This is NOT an easy job. From resume reviews, to mock interviews, creating cover letters, preparing references, hosting orientations, job and transfer fairs, my work is never done. On top of that, I work 3 additional jobs (non-profit, delivery service, music production internship) just to be able to live, save, and live some more. I should add magician considering everyone thinks I can snap my fingers and make job offers appear. Please send me on vacation!!
Why do I deserve a trip to Cancun? Good question! As executive director of the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce, I\'ve been working hard to serve our dynamic business community through advocacy, networking, and education services. In fact, we are celebrating our first year of amazing service to our community and invite you to join us on Thursday, October 29, 6-9pm, at historic Flushing Town Hall, for a reception and dinner. See you in the neighborhood!
