What kind of work do you do? I'm a special needs teacher in a grade 6 class. I've been following the same boy and same setof students for 4 years now but I've worked with around 30 autistic kids in the past 12 years.
Do you enjoy your job? I LOVE my job. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing that kid whose parents were told he would never speak say his first word or listening to the kid who was told he would never read or write haltingly read out the first story he wrote on his own. Watching the "typical" kids form a bond and friendship with these special kids is amazing too
What is your dream job? Probably the one I have with more pay and a benefits package. I'm in a tiny private Christian school with almost no government funding so I get paid significantly less than my public school counterparts but I do get to avoid the politics involved with the public system.

What kind of work do you do? I do long term and routine EEGs. I work for an epilepsy ccenter. At the childrens hospital I do ICU monitoring mostly comatose pts. When I am at the other hospital which is actually 2 hospitals together. I do routine EEGs in a clinic. We also have a pediatric and adult epilepsy unit where we hook up pts for days to weeks.
Do you enjoy your job? I love my job. I feel lucky to be able to do a little of everything. Some EEG techs get stuck with only clinic or only hospital pts. I get a little of both.
What is your dream job? Probably what I am doing now. Although more pay and maybee rearrange my schedule a little would be nice. If I had to pick a new career I would be a stay at home mom.

What is your dream job? I am doing my dream job. I'd just like to make a bit more money and only work parttime. I'd love to work 4 days a week and stay home 3 days a week.

I am a teacher (well, right now I'm out due to pregnancy complications).
I really enjoy my job. It is great to spend the day with kids, they just have such a different outlook on life than adults do.
I would eventually like to get into school administration after about 3 years of being a SAHM after Cole is born and probably about 5 more years of classroom teaching. I need a career that always offers change and advancement.

What kind of work do you do? Right now I'm a banker
Do you enjoy your job? I enjoy working with people, but it's not my dream job, it pays the bills
What is your dream job? I would eventually like to go back to school and become either a labor & delivery nurse or a midwife. Being an ultrasound tech has crossed my mind as well but I'd only want to do babies not livers and kidneys and stuff lol!

I am a Kindergarten teacher. If I have to work, I have the best job. Ultimately I would love to be a stay at home mommy though.

RN in L&D.

I do enjoy my job. Some days more than others. The great couples that are kind and love each other make up for the other patients that can make for a long day. I love being able to be a part of one of the best days of that couples lives, or that single mothers life or whatever. I love to take pictures if the delivery was uncomplicated and I have time. There are lots of things I love that counteract the bad/sad parts.

This has always been my dream job. I wanted to be a nurse in kindergarten and even though I randomly considered other careers it was really always my first choice even though many nurses/family members tried to talk me out of it saying its too much hard work for not enough pay. But when I was about 12 I started being really interested in pregnancy and pregnantweomen/babies and after I had karmen I knew I wanted to work L&D.
