invite yourself to room 'otcc'
let's do this!
everyone i invited is away...why do i not have more of you on my buddy lists
...I'm CochiseJ or CoCarJa on aim, but in Ghana I only aim during office hours. Sorry buddy.
jeez, i can't even get the manwhore to talk to me
i'm going to the bar
...sorry but I'm in bed...naked...
Are you there? You can't miss this, the ever elusive Bobbot! I'm coming, void!
whats your aim handle void?
Yuppers, I'm here on buisness... I thought I mentioned that I was estranged from comics because I was in a third world country??? I'm a federal appointee.
cool...bring me back something
...and here, I thought you only liked to pitch. It must really be Christmas.
What do you do CoCo?
Everything and nothing. My US title is International Affairs Project Specialist. But in Ghana, my door reads: US Federal Adviser to the Government of Ghana. So who knows what I really do.
It sounds really cool is why I was asking. I have no idea what any of that means but it still sounds interesting.
Basically, I'm a federal adviser for Ghana. My job's goal is to help facilitate Ghana's transition from a third world country to a first world country...while keeping US interest at heart.
I'm helping to overhaul the energy crisis, cement the industrial age (so that they can finally get out of it), advise on Ghana's interests regarding the vast amounts of natural resources (read: oil), and improve tourism/economy. Coincidentally, I'm the youngest person to ever be appointed to this position.
So yea, it's pretty cool.
Can you tell us how you got that job? Education, connections, previous jobs, etc.? This sounds like a field I'd like to get into is why I'm asking, but I'm probably in the wrong degree for it.
I was appointed to this position. I know I'm rather young (uhh, 24), but I've done a lot in my years; I have a kick ass resume!
By the time I hit college, I had already been honored by 3 sitting senators, a Lt. Gov., a Gov., a First Lady, had several lines of publishing creds (as both author and editor), interviewed a national best seller for the AP, been management within several companies, liaised a million dollar national contract, self-financed my private HS education, and happily accepted a scholarship to college while working full time. In college, I doubled majored in Psych & English, minoring in WGSX (Women, Gender, & Sexuality) all while holding 2 different administrative committee seats, being executive officers of 3 different campus organizations, and starting programs that have lasted even after I left the campus. When it finally came time for me to leave, I accepted a position in the private sector as Marketing Director of a development company. After putting in few years with that company, I resigned to try my hand with the government.
I was eying a reformative program taking place within DOC, and was accepted into the application process...which would take up to 6 months! Ever cautious, I also accepted a position within NSA. After psych evals revealed that I 'wasn't the ideal candidate' for the DOC position (which equated to homophobic bias, especially since I was already given an offer letter prior to my admitting to the whole gay thing). Pissed off and feeling rejected for the first time in my life, I accepted a position with DOTFAA full time, and went to 'special project' status with NSA.
DOTFAA was a pay cut from what I was accustomed to, but it allowed me to interact with a more powerful type of person. Within a couple months, I impressed the right people, and was switched to a different task...the type of shit where your trash can has a dead bolt lock on it, you aren't permitted to use cell phones on premises (the signal was blocked), and full scale monitoring was taking place (land-line telephone as well as all eTraffic).
After about 5 months, I was informed that I was being appointed to a different position...International Affairs Project Specialist. I had no idea what this meant. All I knew was that it required me to travel a lot, and it sounded like an adventure. I must say that it has been.
My ambition has always been to embody the Renaissance Man. My career choices reflect that.
