After CMU today, I met with a professor at RMU, who was in need of a typist. He needed someone to type his notes, essays, and etc. I responded to the job application on Facebook, and we scheduled a meeting. On my way to his office, I ran into my old pressor MC she and I talked for a bit, and then she showed me where Dr. Skovira’s office was located. I greeted him and said, “My name is Danielle. I am here about the Typist position.” He said, “Oh yes.” I took a seat across from his desk and he said that he is looking for someone, who can read his handwriting. He handed me a document and looked it over. I noticed he wrote in cursive. It wasn’t all that hard to read.
Growing up my mom wrote in cursive, so I feel like reading “handwriting” came naturally to me. Even though, I do not handwrite well. I did learn cursive in 2nd grade, but it was never enforced. I always admired people who could write so beautifully in cursive and had amazing Caligraphy skills. I do not. My handwriting is a mix of print and cursive. I mostly type.
I told him that I would definitely be able to type this document up for him in a word document. He told me that he wants it in 12pt font, Georiga, and double space. I nodded, smiled, and said, “I can do that.” He gave me the deadline of next Wednesday. We discussed payment, but I find it awkward to negotiate, so I am not sure what amount I will receive, until we meet next Wednesday, when I turn in the original copies.
After my meeting with the professor, I sat down and got to work on some school work. I had some time to kill before the CLA and there was no sense in going home and coming back.
