A few words with winning author Patty Patrignelli:

What do you do for a living?

My name is Patty Patrignelli and I live in Monroe, New York. While my main role in life is a mom,  I am also a Kindergarten Teaching Assistant in a K-1 elementary.

Has your sense of humor ever helped you on the job?
I truly believe humor is what gets us through life.  I am fortunate to be around children all day who bring humor into everything they say and do.  Many times when I see a student struggling with a concept or skill, I use humor to lighten up the moment and make them feel more relaxed and less apprehensive.  Funny rhymes and silly, humorous behavior can make a huge difference in how a child responds to you.

What’s your best advice for jobseekers?

There is something for everyone; when you are truly focused on making a change or following a dream, doors will open.

What do you find funny and not funny about job search?
What I find funny about a job search is the fact that people expect to open the newspaper and find that highly-paid dream job on page 44. What is not so funny, is the fact that there are so many talented, hard-working people who just haven’t had the opportunity to get their foot in the door. Job searching is a tough, exhausting process; however, keep your sense of humor as people (including prospective employers) are naturally drawn to those who make them smile and laugh.SECOND PLACE
