By Michelle Lhota-BennettAssociated Press”The first thing that comes to mind is: What do I do with my time?
But you have to realize that it’s the same with every job that you do.
So what do you do?
You have to figure out what you want to do.
It’s hard to find out what your passion is.”
Alyssa Krieger, a 23-year-old graduate student, recently started a new job at Columbia Sportswear in Columbia, Missouri, to make her first paycheck after graduating with a degree in social work.
Krieger has been on a short-term job with the company since January, and has only recently been able to get a job offer.
Her experience with the Columbia team has been mostly supportive, she said, and she’s been fortunate to find a mentor in the company’s head of recruitment, Jennifer Hennig.
Kreyger has also worked with a company that specializes in creating online custom apparel for women in sports.
The team makes a range of apparel for a variety of sports and apparel brands, including the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and the US Soccer Women’s National Team (USWNT), and its main focus is apparel for athletes that are younger than 35 years old.
In addition to the company, she also works with the college sports department at Columbia, and with the athletic department as a full-time employee, she is working part-time in her degree.
For Krieberg, the new opportunity at Columbia provides a chance to keep improving her resume and develop a better sense of herself.
She also gets to spend more time with her family.
“I really like the fact that the company is trying to do things a little bit differently,” she said.
“We have a little more of a casual vibe here.”
The Columbia Sportsswear team is a team that focuses on creating apparel for the sportswearing industry.
The company does not specialize in men’s apparel.
Hennig, who works as the company president and chief operations officer, said the team is also focused on bringing new people to the organization.
“It’s kind of like a mix of a factory and a retail store,” she explained.
“The stores are open, the stores are not closed, the employees are open and they’re really happy to have the opportunity to work on their own.”
While she appreciates the work Columbia Sportswear is doing, Kriegers biggest motivation for the job is getting her first salary.
Her first paycheck is about $9,000, which she hopes to get more money for over the next year, she added.
The work she does at Columbia offers her the opportunity for a better life, she says, but she also knows she’ll need to keep working at it to earn the $15 an hour she was making before the pay raise.
“It’s just not enough for me, and that’s what I really want, to be able to be a mom and have a family and be able help out my kids,” Krieher said.
