SERVING YOUR COMMUNITY: CHOOSING A CAREER THAT BENEFITS THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU

People Bumping Fists Above Table With Jars and Pen Holder

“How will it help the masses?”


servicing the people

When choosing a career that will be of some service to your community, know that you have to have a lot of patients and experience with people. The reason being is that you are going to have a lot of their lives in your hands. No matter if you’re a doctor working with patience, or a politician making decisions effecting the community. You better be ready to deal with people that you enjoy and don’t enjoy. And if you’re someone you want to be loved, you’re in a tough spot. Especially if you’re going to be a politician, where you’re going to be making promises that you know a lot of which won’t get passed because of the bureaucratic process. So be ready for frustration at its highest.

purpose

You want to have a career that services the people, then you need to be ready to ask yourself some questions. One of the biggest questions should be, “What is my reason for being in this role; a purpose?” And there has to be a purpose because most civil servants, which are people who service society the most make the least amount of money. So if the job is strictly about money, then you might want to reconsider taking on the job. Because the stress level is high and the payout is generally low. Now on the other hand, there are positions that pay quite well where you work with the public, such as a doctor.

job security

Depending upon the job, you could be looking at something that is recession proof and depression proof. That is being a doctor and a prison guard. People will always need doctors and always go to jail. Now, the job of a doctor is a lot less volatile than a corrections officer, and the pay is better. We all want to be secure in what we do, especially once we start having children and getting married. So choosing a career with some good benefits and pay is stable for them. Anything that requires you to build your own money versus receiving a check every two weeks is more risky. So stability is more rational to people.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
