Theres so many people out there and I’m always curious. Majored in fine art (painting) but I do many things: Graphic design, photography, painting, web design, fiction writing and right now I teach English as a second language in Mexico. With me my work is my hobby and vise versa.
What are some things bee’s out there do for work? And I’m curious how you got started in your line of work?

I’m a stay at home wife but I earn extra money by writing for a few online and print publications, being a pundit on radio shows, and working some news coverage at a local radio station. It’s not a ton of money but I love doing it and it keeps me in shoes and purses.

I’m a chemical buyer, kind of like Lydia in Breaking Bad
I started in bulk fabric purchasing at the super awesome American Apparel factory in LA, stayed in apparel for a few years, and then got recruited for my current company. It’s a regular ole corporate job but I like the company and my co-workers a lot. My hubby has the glamorous job though, he’s an assistant director for film & television!

- Wedding: August 2013 - Rocky Mountains USA
I’m a wildlife biologist. It’s pretty great in a lot of way – outside all the time, contributing some good to the world, flying around in tiny planes looking for bald eagles, driving an atv around looking for hawk nests, watching sage grouse mating displays, etc etc.
It’s also sucky in some ways – gone 4 days a week for months at a time, really repetitive work in some instances, underpaid considering I have a M.S., and a REALLY tough job market – so when I have a kid and have to leave this job, who knows if I’ll be able to find another one :/

I’m a corporate IT trainer. I kind of fell into the training department while I was still in college and really enjoyed it. Because of office politics and a chance to advance, I got out of training for a while and did some other things, but I ended up miserable. I took my current job to get back into the field, and I’m pretty happy where I’m at.

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle!
I’m a bioengineer in academia right now. A few years ago I used to study cartilage regeneration. I would genetically engineer cartilage to start growing, encapsulate the cells in a scaffold of sorts, and work with an orthopedic surgeon that was trying to tissue engineer knee replacements for his patients. During that time I also worked at a medical device startup that made guidewires and worked on a validation system for them so they could be FDA approval to begin clinical testing.
Now I work in a multiscale lab that combines genetics, fluid mechanics, biomechanics, and cardiology. I study specifically how blood flow patterns initiate disease. Usually we run computer simulations first, then program the flow regimes in bioreactors and subject tissue to different flows. Then we look at the gene and protein expression profiles of the tissue to see how blood flow affects remodeling that leads to aneurysm formation. I really like my job. I’m hoping to transition to the clinic or industry after this. I’d really like to do tissue engineering in industry, but the funding is tricky for start ups.

@lolot: I can understand how difficult it is because your position is so specialized, but being a wildlife lover – you have THE MOST AWESOME JOB!
Me – Human Resources. I really do like my job, it is challenging and never boring, thats for sure.

I work for the Buffalo Wild Wings IT department as a Menu Maintenance specialist! I love my job. I went to school for Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management and started off managing at a couple different BWW restaurants. When the opportunity to get into the corporate office was available I jumped on it! It is so nice to work Monday – Friday and it will be so much better when we start having babies too!!

Right now I do marketing for a company by day and I work for myself as a food blogger by night. I plan to end up doing my food blog full time probably about a year from now. I can’t wait to be able to focus on my passion and work for myself full time! Plus once my blog is my day job I will actually have my nights and weekends back for personal use! 🙂

@menzies: This, but trade the 3 cats for 3 dogs.
I hate it though. I want to get another job as soon as the wedding is over and we save up money for a second car.
