Just for fun! What do you all do for a job? How long have you been doing your job? Are you happy with where you are at, or looking to move into something else eventually?
I am a student, teach 1st grade (only the English part, class is split) , and work in retail…
Next May I graduate and will hopefully be teaching full time. I am debating on staying in retail for a little while because of the discounts (and everyone knows discounts are amazing while planning a wedding!)

I produce tv commercials and music videos. I’m happy with where I’m at but, would eventually like to do something else once I start having kids. Production work is way too stressful and the long hours don’t help either. I’ve been with the same company for four years.

I am a “Financial Services Representative” at a bank. I basically open accounts, originate non-mortgate loans, general customer service. I’ve been doing it for about 5 months. I love it. I’d eventually like to get into recruiting, but for the bank.

Ms iPhone– My uncle produced in Hollywood for several years and always told me about how stressful it was. He now is doing his own thing teaching film at a university, because he didn’t like all of the politics and everything involved with it. But it really sounds like an amazing job if you can handle the stress!
lrwedd– my Future Mother-In-Law is a RN, working at children’s hospital with the babies that are in bad condition. It is an amazing job, and I totally wish I was smart enough (in math and science) to do something like that! Good luck with your new job!!!!!

I am a graphic designer and have been with my company for 6 years. I have a good job that treats their employees well and couldn’t ask for more in this economy. But like all jobs, it gets old sometimes. Like I said though, I can’t complain.

I’m a wedding photographer. Been doing it full time for over 3 years now. Honestly, my job is awesome! I love it and my clients! When I have a family (in a few years) I want to scale down the number of weddings I do and focus more on portrait work. That’s what I love the most and it’s easier to do a 2 hr portrait session while nursing etc. than a 10 hr wedding 🙂 Then I can also reclaim weekends with the FH who works during the week 🙂 But like I said, that’s a few years off and I’d only scale back the number I accept 🙂

I’m head of the sales department for a Hilton property. I currently coordinate all events as well while we train a new employee.
I have a degree in culinary arts, so it sort of ties in. I am taking my CMP after the wedding, so hopefully that’ll give me some more opportunities.

I have a B.S. in Advertising.
I do advertising, web management, tv commercial production, photography, etc. for a very small family-owned chain of retail stores.
One day, I want to be my own boss. Fiance and I are talking about purchasing some greenhouses and growing tomatoes over the winter. We have a large market for it, but no suppliers.
We’ll see…….. 🙂

I was in equity research for about 4 years which is one of those Wall St type jobs where you look at the financials of companies and then tell clients which ones to invest in. Stressful and not fulfiling but a great experience.
I am currently back in school pursuing a career in nursing with the goal of becoming a nurse practitioner.
How many others bees out there are on 2nd and 3rd careers?
