I got a new job last month and so cheap girl has spending money again. It feels so good. The amazing thing about my three jobs is that each one has its own perks. I've decided to use all three.
My new job, which I won't talk about in detail is my main job. My salary pays all my expenses, will allow me to save a little, and in a year will provide matching retirement benefits. Its kinda a dream gig for me. It will let me use all my talents on some youth who are struggling. They also have a gym located on site available to employees at lunch, which is an amazing perk. I use it every day I can.
My on call job which isn't something I do every week but it pays me a little more than my third job. They provide a quality free lunch and therapy if I ever need it. Therapy, which runs about 120 bucks a visit, is not covered by our medical system, and its nice to know I have it available if I feel I need it. The reason they provide it to employees is because it's an emotionally draining job. I feel blessed to have the option
My last job, which I do 5 hours a week, allows me to relax. I can also sign up for training on pretty much any computer program you can think of. I think that's pretty cool. I start doing photoshop tutorials for free. This job is pretty much minimum wage. I only do it because I love the environment plus it hardly feels like working. I look forward to that job every week.
I think I happen to be extremely luck with all the perks I have at my three jobs. Yet I found that few people use the gym at my work. Few people take the free time at my third job for self development let alone taking the free tutorials. I can't say how many people use the therapy at my second job but my guess is that very few actually do. You see people often over-look whats right in front of them.
