I've done quite a few work force spotlights for Kronos, and I'll keep doing them for as long as they ask. Kronos' 1 in one hundred million web series is all about celebrating this country's work force, and I think that's important. With all the focus on corporate jobs and business degrees these days, it's easy to forget that there's an entire group of people out there keeping this whole thing going.
Work Force Spotlights Keep it in Perspective
Of course, all of those jobs requiring college degrees are important. We need engineers and doctors and lawyers and the like. But where do the engineers get their computers? Where do the doctors get their equipment? Where do the lawyers get all of their paper? They get it from the work force that no one sees. Truckers haul cargo. Workers in a factory put together equipment. Warehouse workers load trucks and take inventory. Heck, if there wasn't someone working the fry area, you wouldn't get your cheeseburger with a large fries and drink.
As the leader in work force management, Kronos understands the value of all workers, not just college educated ones. Their 1 in one hundred million web series focuses on people in a variety of areas and educational levels of our country's work force. They've features a baseball bat maker, alligator wrangler, produce manager, fireman, teacher, and more. It's all to bring awareness to those unsung heroes who keep the lifeblood of this country pumping each and every day.
Jennifer Miller, Retail Sales Associate at MJ Christensen Diamonds
Jennifer Miller is a sales associate with MJ Christensen Diamonds, but she's more than that. She's also a humanitarian and world traveler. As a sales associate, she uses her knowledge of jewelry, her listening, and her empathy to help clients pick out pieces for everything from birthday and anniversary gifts to engagement rings with prices ranging from $39 - $750,000. And she has some great stories.
One of her most memorable stories was helping a couple in their 70s celebrate. This woman had finally overcome her fear of having her ears pierced, and her husband bought her a pair of gorgeous earrings. Jennifer got them a bottle of champagne to celebrate the momentous occasion. She has so many stories like this of being part of some of the most special moments in a person's life.
This work force heroine also does philanthropic work as well. Last year, she worked as a volunteer in Uganda with the BreadforLife program. This program aims to create sustainable income opportunities for women to help them lift their families out of poverty by selling handmade, recycled jewelry in the US and North America. On her trip, Jennifer worked with the women who create the jewelry and sell it to the non-profit. Working with BreadforLife allowed her to use her specific set of skills to help these women with their jewelry and raise them up from the average poverty wage of less that $0.60 a day.
Our Work Force is a Force to be Reckoned With
Kronos loves our work force, and so do I. I'm always excited to bring these 1 in one hundred million posts to my readers, because without the kind of people doing the kinds of jobs that they do in our work force, this country would be crippled. These men and women put in the time and energy to keep our nation going, whether its sales, manual labor, or teaching.
Head to the 1 in one hundred million website, and take a look at this great web series. There are currently 16 work force spotlights, and they're all interesting, and I think, important.
wow she is amazing. i love her energy and all of the good she is doing. thanks so much for sharing
What an inspiring woman! Thank you for sharing this.
I love when women are spotlighted like this. With having a younger daughter I love when positive role models like this are around to share their stories.
It never occurred to me that being a sales associate at a fine jewelry store would be an emotional job. But it's true; most people want to give jewelry in relation to something important: engagement, anniversary, I'm sorry, etc. Very interesting.
What a great job, sounds like she gets to be part of so many happy occasions in peoples lives. Love the story about the older couple and the husband buying his wife her first earrings.
