One of the questions posed to chief administrative officer at InnovaCare Health, Penelope Kokkinides was what the worse job she had held in her life. A follow up was also asked that inquired what she learned from her worst job. Mrs. Kokkinides responded by saying that she never had a terrible job in her career. She did say that there were jobs she held where she had duties or roles that she didn’t exactly find enjoyable though. Still, Penelope says that even these jobs allowed her to mature and grow professionally.
Some of her less enjoyable jobs included working as a receptionist at a medical office while she was a high school student. Kokkinides says she would answer phones and take care of some office duties. The office was open in the afternoon, so Kokkinides was able to fit in this job after school.

Another job that Penelope Kokkinides held was working as a floater at the department store of Saks Fifth Avenue. A floater is someone who works the floor of a store as both a salesman and a person who helps customers find what they are looking for in a store. Penelope said she actually enjoyed working as a floater at Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. This was despite the fact that she was skeptical at first of applying and working there.
At her job with Saks Fifth Avenue Penelope Kokkinides was able to network with colleagues who later hired her mother for a job. Her mother was a seamstress by trade and was able to secure employment thanks to a referral that her daughter was able to get her. The moral from this story is that great things can come when you take a chance and then work hard at opportunities that arise from taking a risk. In Kokkinides’ case she helped her mother find work, found a job that she loved and got a decent paycheck at the end of the week to boot.
