My name is Martina. I have a 4 1/2 year old daughter and I rent space in a ladies house...who is raising the rent from 550-800 on the 1st of January. I have two part time jobs as it is. One working for a lawyer who rents space from another lawyer in the office. The other job I just started last weekend working as a hostess in a restaurant. I will be making roughly $350 a week with both jobs and that is not nearly enough to survive on especially with my rent being raised. Now, The office I work in, the other lawyer is about to fire their receptionist, the office manager asked if I was interested in the position. It's a full time postion. I'm a very motivated hard working person as long as I have work to do. The full time position also has full benefits. I want to work all three because I really really need the money...BAD, BUT the lady thinks it's impossible to work for both lawyers at the same time. I think I can do it, actually I know I can do it. It would be stressful, but It would be worth it. I would still have time for my daughter too.
I would totally leave one job for this, but the lawyer I work for now, I have known since I was a child and he is the best boss you could imagine. I lost a baby on November 1st of this year ( I was 6 months pregnant) and he was unbelievably understanding and was just there and supportive. He's great to say the least, so leaving him is no option for me because he has stuck by my side through all my ups and downs.
I need all the positions, but I have to make them believe I can do it too.
