Love Your Job! 3 Reasons I Love Working at The Arc of Monroe
Do you love what you are doing? Do you want to love what you do? Then maybe a career at The Arc of Monroe is for you. Here are 3 reasons Executive Assistant Pam Furr has continued working at The Arc of Monroe for over 25 years.
I Love Many Things about working at The Arc of Monroe
Usually when someone is asked why they love working at The Arc, including myself, many people would say it’s the people we support, along with our co-workers, which is true. But it is also it is those opportunities you are given to work on or be a part of a project which spans across the agency. Knowing that your knowledge and input is valued has a different kind of reward.
I Learn a Lot from Listening
Working at The Arc has taught me patience – sometimes things do not always move as quickly/fast as you would want or like it to. The other thing I have learned is how to not only listen to someone, but to truly hear what they are saying and taking it to heart. Each of us has the chance or opportunity to work/interact with people supported and co-workers from different backgrounds, work and life experiences, etc. – each brings something to the table. So it is the ability to not only listen and hear, but also learn from each other.
Working with Co-workers is Exciting
When you are able to work on a project or assist a co-worker with a task, and need to think outside of the box as to the solution. I really love those opportunities in which I “learn” something new.
