Monday Morning Omelete

The Employment Guide was live and in center stage at the recent Florida Restaurant and Lodging Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. We were the official computer center of the show and a partner of the FRLA. It was an exciting 3 days of meeting people, trying new foods, teaching employers how to reach our demographic and having a grand old time.

Employment Guide at FRLA in Orland, FLThe Incredible Egg Man

While there, I had a chance to take out the camera and film a few segments for Orlando JobSpot TV. I met Howard Helmer, the world's fastest omelet maker. Below he shows us his skills while putting together a special omelet just for the Employment Guide.

Channel Howard's Energy
I really took a liking to Howard and his wacky (well, eggy) ways. It shows that you can turn your passion into a career. Howard was at the FRLA show to promote the use of Florida Eggs from Florida Farms in their restaurants. He wasn't there for the money, but for the love of his eggs.

Part-time Passion
Not everyone can have a passion for eggs and make it work. What you can do is evaluate the things that you are good at and feel passionately about and find avenues to making that your career. Even if it starts out as a hobby to your 9-5, you can become an industry expert by blogging, joining organizations, starting a nonprofit and networking within the field you want to break into. No one says that it is easy, just that it is doable. Remove the obstacles that are stopping you from your goals and get into a positive mind frame.

The grass is always greener on the other side until you plant your own seeds that become the yard that you yearn for. Happy hunting Orlando and get ready for the Orlando Fall Job Fair at the Florida Mall on Tuesday, September 23rd from 10am - 3pm.
