Human Services Specialist III

July 2015 • Henrico, VA

What I liked

I liked having the privacy of working from my own office. I was able to concentrate on my tasks without any distractions.

What I wish was different

I wish that the work hours could have been less demanding. I was also taking a class and studying for my first actuary exam. I found it hard to find a healthy balance between work, school, and social life.

Advice

I would advise everyone to take every day a moment at a time. Planning ahead is for the wise and to practice self-care as you won't be able to excel in anything if you are not up for trying due to pure exhaustion.
