Running Head: GOAL 1 Career Goal Maryalice Wood HCA340: Managing in Health & Human Services Instructor Lilia Chavarria March 29, 2018
GOAL 2 Step 1: Self-Assessment What do you do well? I was previously working at a healthcare facility. I worked in the front office as a Patient Financial Services Representative. I first started working for the endocrinology department and then moved to primary care. I enjoyed working in primary care more so than the endo office. It was more relaxed and laid back, and the people I worked with were more helpful. I am a hard and organized worker. I do my job efficiently and thoroughly. I am quickly trainable and catch on quickly to anything that is put in front of me. Not many can say that. At my previous job, I work in a call center, and I got so good at what I was doing there and knew the information well enough that I became a trainer/leader in that area. I was the go-to person as we didn’t have a direct supervisor to go to on hand. Before that, I work in high-end hospitality design interior design artwork. We made chain art murals for resorts, hotels, and high-end restaurants and casinos. I was quick w getting my work done and pumping out curtains we were able to bring in more and more revenue every month. I learned a lot about the job, and I also learned how to drive a forklift and scissor lift. In the midst of all of that, I was still able to attend school and maintain my excellent GPA average.

Hence the reason I am going back to school so that I can provide a better life for them. I want to be able to be successful not only for myself but my kids. They mean the world to me and it’s because of them that I am still grounded and on this earth. The next thing would be my motivation to strive to do well. I have not had that in a very long time. I have seen the person I was in the past, and I see the person I am now, and they are two different people. I know I can do better for myself and for my family. I have taught myself to be great and not to give up. Even though there are days where I feel as though I want to. I don’t. I am the one to keep everyone positive even though I don’t want to be. If you knew you could not fail, what would you do? For me, failure is something that just happens in life. I have gone through a lot of my life failing at things that I never expected to. I have had a lot of highs and more lows. I have dug myself out of a huge hole and was doing great for a long while. I now find myself back in that hole, and I am trying the best I can to get out of the hole. I lost my job, losing our house in June, waiting for money from my federal return that I should have had a long time ago to pay bills but don’t, we had
