While I watched the Titans whoop on the Colts tonight, they had a quick segment on Kerry Collins. Although Kerry has always been a quarterback, the segment was about all of the teams he had played on since 1995 (or so). Within that time, he had played quarterback for several teams before coming to the titans, where he appears to be doing very well (6 & 0).
That got me thinking about the different jobs I have worked prior to becoming a Loan Officer.
I started at the age of 15 working at a fast food restaurant. Actually I worked several. My first real job was a Division Manager at 'The Enterprise" newspaper in Simi Valley, CA. I was 20. Actually, at that time I was working 2 jobs. The title 'Division Manager' sounds bigger than it was. At that time, we had kids still doing the routes, not adults in automobiles. My job was simple. I would oversee about 45 kids between the ages of 10 and 16. I'd be sure they were trained on which houses to deliver the paper to and make sure they realized the importance on getting it on the doorstep.
Do you remember when it was typical for the kids to deliver the paper? They would come to your door and collect your money. In return you would get your paper on the doorstep and receive a little blue receipt stub when you paid them. Now you are lucky if the paper makes it across your sidewalk towards your house. Its very irritating when my paper is wet from my grass. Anyway, that's not the point of this blog.
About a year later, I began working for Countrywide Home Loans. An experience I will never forget and will always be thankful for. I didn't rush to become a loan officer. When I started at Countrywide, I worked Insurance Claims. It was quite busy, mainly because of a little hurricane called "Andrew", back in August 1992. During my time with Countrywide, I worked within many servicing areas and took several training classes. I've learned PLENTY within the mortgage industry.
It took me several years before I realized that being a Mortgage Professional is what I wanted to do. I get to work with people and numbers. Both are fantastic!
