After 21 years of working for this firm I feel that it is time for a change in order to advance myself and learn something new in the work environment. My typical day in the office would be to follow up on emails that have come in overnight, plan out my day for priorities and such, I handle the credit card payments that may come in on a given day, work with my team of attorneys, answer any questions that may come along with my other billing team specialist and work with them to come up with better solutions that would make our jobs as well as any jobs within the firm more efficient and cost effective. Billing out to clients and their electronic billing systems. I am constantly multi-tasking during the day. At any given moment I can be pulled away from what I am doing to go and help with a more pressing issue, then come back later in the day or the next day to complete what I may have started on. My job requires overtime when needed, which is most days and to work closely with the director of finance to make sure all runs smooth. When the director of finance is not in I take over most of her duties including creating weekly reports and distribution. At times and mostly in the past I have created new reports in the Rippe & Kingston system (LMS) query system as requested by the Firm administrator, director of finance as well as some of the shareholders within the firm which those reports are still being used today.
The hardest part about the job is the constant changing and coming back to what you were doing and to try to remember what you were doing without duplicating anything that may have taken place or to have missed something along the way.
The most enjoyable is the people as well as the constant change. I have been with the firm for 21 years and feel I have exhausted my time with the firm as there is no room for advancement.
