    On My Own 

    So last week my boss was out of the office for most of the week. This forced me to step up and look for things to do. At first another person who i work closely with gave me work to do for a while. However, one day she was not able to come in and I was left with virtually nothing to do.
    Since I was doing nothing but sitting in the office. I decided to go ask the other workers if they needed help. Surely enough one of the other workers gave me a bunch of things to do- specifically i was told to find a specific cartoon online and then translate it into Spanish. Though I slightly regretted it because i ended up bringing some of my work home with me it was still a good experience. It taught me what to do in these circumstances. It also made me more valuable to the rest of the office not just the few people i come in close contact with on a regular basis.

    Today is the day the Central American Resource Center is having its Annual Gala. I unfortuantely will be unable to attend but I did to much of the work to have this event. I called many different elected officials (everything from senators to DC councilmembers) to have them be part of the Honorary Committee. It was interesting to begin to understand how the office of these people work and handle schedules. I also helped get the Event Program ready. I am very sad that I wont be able to see my first hand work in action but i am glad i could help a great organization like CARECEN.

      Guillermo,

      This is a perfect example of the hard work that must occur for events to be successful, yet the public often never knows about the tireless effort that is given my people like you. Take pride in your work, even if it seems no one is recognizing your endeavors. You are gaining great transferable skills that other employers will value from you!

      David
