What's your job?

Recommended Posts

Oh yes Kylie!!!!...Loads...I could tell you some stories! Actually I do tend to write about mental health/psychiatry, which includes my experiences as it really interests me. They say 'write what you know' don't they??

What an admirable goal. :smile: I hope you get into the field you want.

 

 

Thank you! I've started applying already so hopefully will hear back soon.

I'm a full-time carer to my disabled son who has complex care needs. A part-time disability advocate and lobbyist. A part-time distance education student (Latin, and Religion and Philosophy). And like 70% of Earth's population an amateur writer.

 

I do have faint memories of a career...once...a long time ago...teaching IT at TAFE (Technical and Further Education) institute.

I'm currently working as an under-paid, under-appreciated Office Coordinator for a specialty construction company.

 

Not anymore! This past May, I got a job as a Client Services Program Assistant for a non-profit that provides services for victims of sexual assault. I work with amazing people, plus I make enough to support myself and my boyfriend, who is still finishing school. With my income, we've been able to move from our duplex to a cute little house closer to Seattle (and about 3 minutes away from my office), we've been able to pay down our debt significantly, and I was able to buy a new car (new to me, it's a 2003 Honda Accord, but at least it's from this century). I love what I do every day, and I feel so appreciated by the people here. I work mostly with the Therapy department, but also with Family Services and Legal Advocacy. Every day is its own reward, so I feel tremendously lucky. :D

Congratulations Echo. :alc:

 

I've had a few different jobs. Checkout at a supermarket, cleaner at a department store (that was the worst), cleaner at a hotel, and call operator for emergency services. I enjoyed that one, although it was stressful at times. I've also been a volunteer at an op shop, which I loved, and done various volunteer roles at my local library, I still deliver books to housebound people.

 

Currently, I'm mostly a single, full time mum to my two teens, who both have health issues. I'm also studying for a degree in library studies when the kids and my health allows. I've wanted to be a librarian since I was 4.

I'm a full time IT student ^.^ But since studies in Sweden are as good as free (the studies mind you, not anything else attached to it) I'm doing some evenings courses in art and design too. I work in the summer vacations to pay most of my living expenses when I'm studying. My last job was working in an antique store selling old china and even older clocks ^.^

I'm a jobless student at the moment. Ideally I would like to get into medical research preferably cancer research. But I would be happy with any kind of scientific laboratory.

 

Forgot I wrote this... I now work in Medical research. I'm a research technician at the MRC Epidemiology unit in Cambridge.

After being jobless for far too long I finally managed to get a temporary position in my old university, working in their Computer Training Centre. We do a bunch of software training that even includes teaching staff how to use Facebook and Twitter within the uni! How awesome is that?! I haven't had many jobs (and most have been me sat behind a cash register, which I hated with a passion), but this job is one of the best I'll ever have. I love the nerds I work with, I have a lovely office with a gorgeous view, more lunchtime in a day than I know what to do with, and I'm allowed be on twitter and facebook half the day, as long as the work gets done! It's brilliant, I wish I never had to leave.

Just bumping up an old thread... I hope that's okay!  :giggle:

 

I work for an insurance broker  :sleeping-smiley-009  in fact I've been here for just over 3 years.

 

Not entirely boring, we are kind of a niche broker, we specifically do the insurances for strata/apartment buildings.

A long time ago I was in advertising, PR and magazines. When I reached retirement age I fell into starting a new career and I'm now a tour guide. I absolutely love it, the best job I've ever had.
