A few words with Eldaah:

What do you do for a living?
I was a high school science teacher for seven years, but I am currently a full-time graduate student in nursing school.

Eldaah, El Paso, TX

Has your sense of humor ever helped you on the job?
When teaching a difficult subject like science to high school students, I used to employ humor into my lessons to keep the kids interested. I would also tell a
joke before a test to put my students at ease and to get rid of some of the pre-test jitters.

Ever used humor in a job search?
Yes, making myself laugh when the job search looked bleak helped me on my quest for a new job.

What’s your best advice for jobseekers?
Stay positive. Your dream job is out there, so do not give up!  And change careers if you have to in order to find your dream!

What do you find funny and not funny about job search?
I find it hilarious the dismal salaries that teachers get paid.

“…And don’t get me started on Frank.  Since his promotion, he’s got this ‘holier than thou’ attitude.”
