Starting My New Job

by Patricia on May 25, 2016

in Career Paths

I have just finished a week at my new job at Nordstrom! I really like it. This is my first step towards my career! After I graduate, I hope to complete the retail management internship and have a job. I work in the dress department, and I have helped a lot of mother/groom of the bride choose dresses. There are lots of things to remember about the register and following up with customers. I also have to organize racks and put things in the right order. The time goes by so fast! I usually get an hour for lunch and I get to shop at the other stores at West County Mall. My paycheck is commission based, the average wage for a sales person at Nordstrom is $16/hour, but since I just started, I’m only earning $11/hour. I hope to get up there this summer!

Besides working at Nordstrom, I have lots of vacation plans as usual and other fun things to do (baking of course) so stay tuned!

I got involved my freshman year at Fontbonne in the student government association.  I was lucky enough to be selected to serve on the executive board, which as a freshman doesn’t happen often.  I was so excited to assume my role as I had always wanted to be on student council in high school.  I hit the ground running and help the position of VP of Finance for 2 consecutive years.

Student Government Association (SGA) is a great organization on campus that is the voice for the entire student body.  I got to serve as a reference point between other organizations on campus and the general board of SGA.  I got to talk to many different students and keep track of a running budget.  This are great skills to have.  After my time as VP of Finance was coming to an end during my second year I chose to run for President of the organization.

Since then I have served in the roll of President.  It has been two years since then and I have grown so much as a person in that time.  Getting involved in an organization was the best decision I have ever made.  I have grown and thrived as a person since I have been involved.  I learned how to push out of my comfort zone and to care more about others than myself.

Everyone should get involved during their time at Fontbonne.  Whether it is in SGA, the activities board or even the service organizations on campus.

Being a Griffin is such an awesome experience.  And everyday is not quite like the other; you meet new friends, are constantly saying hi, and enjoying life and the beauty of campus.  To be a Griffin means to be able to stop and say hello to almost everyone on campus.  A normal day in my life as a Griffin consists of getting out of bed, getting dressed, going to class and being productive for the rest of the day.  Being a Griffin is unlike anything I have ever experienced and if I could do it all over again… I would.

As I have mentioned before, I do a lot of traveling in the summer. Between June 3-10 I will be going to Florida. We are renting a house on St.George island. The house has a pool and a room to sleep outside at night. I really enjoy the beach. I could spend all day riding waves on the boogie board. I also enjoy shopping for souvenirs. This time will be different because we will bring our dog Champ! He loves the outdoors and running outside.

Sometime in July, we might visit our aunt and cousin in Chicago! Last year, my brothers and I took the train by ourselves. We planned on seeing our other cousin in Wisconsin but couldn’t because my mom had an asthma attack. We will try again this year. I look forward to riding the water taxi again!

And of course I am starting my new job at Nordstrom as a sales associate in the dress department.

Have a great summer!

Planning ahead…

by Patricia May 9, 2016

The car I always wanted is the sky blue Fiat. It has a moon roof and is the perfect color. I had always wanted a Fiat because I like foreign cars; recently I saw a light green fiat that I really like. However, I think I will end up buying a Honda. This is because […]

Advice to Pre-Fontbonne Me

by Danielle May 9, 2016

If I could give any advice to the pre-Fontbonne me I would definitely tell her to not stress so much.  Understand that you cannot be in control of absolutely everything in life.  I would also tell myself that I was going to end up a planner and that was going to be tough for me […]

Looking Back

Well Griffins, it looks like we are finally here! It’s finals week, which means we are so very close to being done with the semester and ending another great year at Fonbonne. I can’t help but think about how fast my time at Fontbonne has flown by. I remember my parents dropping me off on […]
