I am 23 and a nurse, but I want to be a teacher. But I have to stick it out before I can go back to studying. It sucks, but you have to pay the bills.

I work for a non profit as a program coordinator and go to graduate school in the evenings.  I love what I do, but the hours and stress don’t justify how much I get paid right now and I’m hoping to eventually get a differnt job once I have my experience and schooling built up more.  SO goes to grad school full time and is graduating next spring/summer!

I’m one of the lucky few that always knew what I wanted to be and am working in my dream job and lo an behold…I love it!

I’m an Architect. 29, majored in architecture in high school and college. Been working since I graduated at 22 with summer internships throughout college.

@MissLibra:

I never recommend ID to go to Architecture. ID make way more than we do and it’s nothing like ID.

Receptionist/Coordinator for a non-profit organization (Service for Seniors). Been here for almost 2 months and enjoying it for the most part so far! Planning on becoming a Stay-At-Home Mom in the next few years, though.

I’m a Project Manager in the Pharmaceutical industry (I didn’t read all the responses but I don’t think I saw any other Pharma bees).  I work in a very niche area of Clinical Trials and I’d eventually like to move into a different area of pharma.  But until I have a good reason to leave my company I’ll stick it out for the good pay and benefits.

I studied economics and now work in finance. Very similar to what I studied, but to be honest, I find it a little dull. (Blessed to have a job at all though considering the economy!)

I’m 21, just finished my BA in English in August and am now pursuing an MLIS (which I think I love but the job market/future prospects are terrifying) and working full time at the main campus library where I’m basically a grad assistant, so my tuition is paid for. I like it for the most part because I’m getting really good experience in the field and my degree will be paid for. My co-workers can be a little wacky at times though.

I am a cosmetologist… and a dairy farmer.  I have been doing hair for… wow…almost 10 years!  I also have my cosmetology instructor license and think about getting back into the teaching aspect allllllll the time. 

As for the farming…. it’s my parents’ farm and I LOVE working there as well.  I have been helping out since I could walk!

In all honesty, I feel lucky to have two jobs that I genuinely enjoy.  I’m busy as all heck, but wouldn’t change a thing!

I’m working in the field I want to be in, not really the career. I want to write novels, but right now, I just sell books. Lol. Someday…

I’m 27 and have a BA in Literature and a JD, and I’m a full time civil case mediator for the state.  Basically, judges refer cases they don’t have time for/don’t want/don’t feel like dealing with to my office, and I try to settle them.  There was a show on USA about a mediator for a while, but like most USA shows, I’d think, my life is thankfully nowhere near that exciting.

Fiance is 31, and he’s a mechanical engineer who works for the feds.

I am a painter and a photographer.  It is challenging, because I am always thinking about getting better and new marketing strategies and sketches and ideas and ads 24/7.  Sometimes I wish I just had a 9-5.  It is hard sometimes to depend on people getting back to you about commissions etc.  Darling Husband is a designer, but right now he works a job from 10-9, so I hardly see him!  We are busy, but I love my life.  I am a work-a-holic, so I like the challenge of something difficult (to make a living at!) and I like being able to work as hard as I want with no end in sight.  No limits.  It definitely takes a LOT of dedication, hardwork, and patience.  Wowsas.

I’m an activities coordinator for an Alzheimer’s unit. Not at all what I went to school for! My degrees are in American Sign Language Interpretation and Technical Theatre. I have too many bills to rely on freelance interpreting right now so I have a regular 40 hr/week job to pay the bills πŸ™‚ I do theatre on the side.
