Actual: product analyst

Preferred: I actually love my job and the company I work for… so I would prefer to be in the same department/career, just a little higher up in the ladder with a higher salary.

Dream: nothing.  I don’t want to do anything!!!!!!!!  I just want to hang out with my sweetie, my rabbit, have enough time to get a dog, and live a life of decadence and luxury ~_~

Im pretty lucky, I do finally have my preferred job: I work as a project manager for a national medical distributor and I love it! It took awhile to get here though. 

My dream job would be to be a writer and stay at home mom. Someday!

My actual job is a project manager in a boutique consulting firm and it definitley was my dream starter career job! I found the firm when I first started grad school and said I wanted to work there when I graduated – so happy it all worked out! My preferred job would be a head consultant but I’ll get there over time!  I guess my dream job outside of my field would be a house flipper!
