I’m a registered nurse. I wish I would have known when I graduated high school what I wanted to do for a living but I am 27 and just really got started.

I am a pediatric nurse in the surgery/transplant depart. I LOVE my job. I eventually want to teach but I love the experience I am getting as a bedside RN. 🙂

I’m a lawyer (went straight through so) I have been for 4 years.  29 now.  I am at work now (and no, I am not on the west coast) so that’s not great.  But on most days, I really like my job!

I’m a Kindergarten teacher and was lucky enough to get hired right out of college so I’ve been at my school for the past 3 years (wahoo for tenure this year!).  I was an elementary/early childhood major in college so it’s just what I’ve always wanted to do.  If I had my choice, I’d probably want to teach in a slightly higher grade (maybe 1st or 2nd) but I love my job most days!

I’m also a CPA working as a not-for-profit and governmental auditor at a CPA firm.  I’m also lucky because I knew what I wanted to do out of high school.  I really love working with not-for-profits! 

@baliahi1029 I also took the test so I know what you are talking about!  Not an easy test and very expensive.

I’m working on my master’s in education with a specialization in Counselling Psychology. When I’m done I will work for peanuts until I finish my provisional hours but after that I will be registered to work as a psychologist! I hope it’s worth it!! I also do some crisis support work part time which is sort of in my field, but also really helped me get into grad school in the first place. I love my job but I will definitely be moving away from it when I am qualified to do something else! My Fiance has a degree in chemical engineering but graduated right around the lowest point of the stock market and couldn’t find a job for over a year. He now works in a sem-engineering job but it has a lot of potential for improvement. Fingers crossed for both of us landing the dream job in the future!

I work as an Ad Specialist for a radio monitoring company.  Not exactly a dream, but I’m very grateful to have it and I have tons of time to get the dream going.  It took me 16 months after graduating to find something that required my degree (that was 20 months ago).  While in school I was working in a service dept of a dealership.  Fiance is a senior accountant and is currently in the process of going through the CPA process.  When he’s all done with that I am going to pursue my master’s in international marketing.

I work in social media/web content/web technologies. It’s not exactly what I want to do but it’s close and I do enjoy it. I’m planning on going back to school to get a degree in software engineering, which is my dream career.

I work at a Psychology Clinic doing research on anxiety and depression patients – I have my BS in Psychology but will be returning to school hopefully next year to pursue my doctorate in Cognitive Neuro with an emphasis on pain research. This postbac research position has been the best decision of my life – I learned what I like and don’t like about the field, got to use my degree for advancement, and really love the opportunities my job has provided.

I am a dietary aide at a hospital. I basically make trays for patients, do diet orders, deliver trays, take orders and put them into the system. Anything food related except cooking, I do. Its not something I would’ve picked for myself but I definitely love it! I love the hospital I work in and it was voted #4 best places to work in the US.

I am a forester. For those of you who do not know I manage peoples property. I was very lucky to land my first job right out of college, although it was far from being my dream job. A lot of long and lonely days doing timber inventory work for large landowners. This past March I was extremly lucky to have found my dream job with a very small forestry consulting company. I absolutly love it. I try to remember each day how fortunate I am to have found such a wonderful job so quickly, especially in todays economy.
