    I'm an Assistant Manager for a large worldwide retail Company. I've been a manager for a year now, but have been with the company for 11 years. Managing people is a very hard task, then trying to keep your customers happy on top of that isn't much easier. Overall, I like it but I can't see myself doing it forever.

    I used to work at as a lifeguard at the disabled childrens camp and it was the best summer I've ever had. Then I lifeguarded at my university and that was probably the most boring job ever, not to mention not too many hot girls came strolling in often. Most of the people who swam in the pool were old people who would float back and forth, while I sit there debating whether or not they are dead. (usually not) haha

    Right now I'm a stock boy at Target haha. I'm the tall kid that can reach off the risers but its not the worst job I've ever had but I'll definately not being keeping it for too long. It's weird how there are so many overweight people who work there, making me feel out of place and looked at different... Tomorrow I'm going to a co-op fair for students at the university I attend and hopefully I have some promising opportunities in the mechanical engineering field :) wish me luck haha.

    I did network support for a finacial institution and have left that position to become a network administrator for a local college. Am thinking about going back to college in the same field, so that's up in the air for me. I have two small children and full time college and full time school is tough on a family.

    I'm currently a student studying Economics and Marketing. I got 1 and a half years left studying. I do enjoy it but I'm kinda lookin forward to the day when I'm making money and money isn't such an issue as it is now.

    I a a Sociologist & sexuality Educator. And yes, I do enjoy my "job" very much as I feel that I am able to help others and in that way, make things a little better for everyone.

    I do not make a living doing this, as I try and help those who would not be able to get the help otherwise.

    Structural Engineer by education - PhD in progress.

    Actual work is as an Interior Designer building Custom Kitchens for the extremely wealthy. It's as good as work comes, but won't keep me amused forever.

    I'm a Ph D student and teaching assistant. I love my subject (Classics), but I am not a fan of Harvard, so I won't stay there to teach, whatever I do.

    Also, I sell paintings and sketched sometimes for pocket change.

    Caregiver for the past 18 years.

    Oh, as for enjoyment, I do, but I will stop after my current patient, because doing this 24/7/365 for almost 20 years has left me without a life. After my patient is gone, I will stop and find that life that I have not had.

    Mr. Right isn't going to wait forever... :D

    I feel bad ...
    I'm just a farmgirl who goes to college (part time)

    I guess my 'job' is helping out on the farm. I care for my horses, clean barns, mow grass, help with the gardening, shovel horse manure, clean house, help prepare meals for the family, and lots of other stuf.
