I had a good balance of work and family working part time in securities.
A typical day at work for me was coming in and checking emails, computers, and voice mails. Once the priorities of the day had been addressed, I continued on with daily activities. One of my favorite things about this job field is that I learned something new every day. If I was talking to a client and I didn't know the answer, I would always tell them I would call them right back with the correct answer, not tell them something wrong. The best part of the job was working with people that embodied that same practice. None of us knew every aspect of the business, but together we complimented each others' strength's and weakness's. The hardest part of the job was having to walk away because the industry would no longer employ part-time employees in the securities industry.
