What is your job? What does it involve?
I'm a baker. I bake cakes & stuff.

What is your other half's job?
He's a welder & metallurgist

What other jobs have you had?
Credit risk analyst, civilian contractor at the Pentagon, marketing for the tradeshow industry, professional wrestler, nightclub bouncer, marketing/advertising specialist, baker
edit: Oh, I was a waitress for a bit too.

None were really bad. Working at the Pentagon was extremely stressful and I left that job shortly before 9/11 so it has very bad connotations for me. I don't like to think about it.

Getting paid to beat people up was mighty awesome.

What is your dream job?
My dream jobs were professional wrestling & baking. I've done 'em both, so now I get to look forward to being a SAHM which is my last remaining dream job!

What is your job? Nurse in an ICU What does it involve? Keeping patients alive! Also, administering medications, educating patients and families on their treatments, being a patient advocate, cleaning up poo all day long, managing ventilators, monitoring heart rhythms, assessing my patients, etc.

What is your other half's job? He is a case manager working with kids who've aged out of foster care. His company gives the kids an apartment to live in, gets them enrolled in school, helps them find a job, teaches them life skills, and tries to keep them out of trouble! He is also going to school to get his master's in Social Work to be a therapist. He is interested in palliative care.

What other jobs have you had? Waitress, sales associate in a department store in the lingerie section, assistant at an adult day care, mental health associate at a psychiatric hospital for children and adolescents, nurse in open heart recovery/cardiovascular icu (which I still do one day a week).

What was your favourite and why? Open heart recovery, love the adrenaline rush and fixing my patients and sending them home

What is your dream job? SAHM. But because of finances that's not realistic for us. Right now I'm working towards becoming a L&D nurse. Once I have this baby I can pursue it in full force

What is your job? Special Education Teacher What does it involve? I work with 3-5 year olds with disabilities. It involves a lot of paperwork and a lot of fun. It can be challenging, but I get to "play" all day : )

What is your other half's job? Accountant

What was your favourite and why? What I do now. I love my students, I love their parents, and I love my coworkers.

What is your dream job? I don't know. I really love what I am doing now. I would like to not have to do it financially, and maybe work part-time and have more time to stay at home with my DD and future little one, but I wouldn't want to stop working completely.

[QUOTE=CeilidhBrennan;24264830]What is your job? What does it involve?
I am the Assistant Front End Manager of the Bozeman Community Food Co-op. I'm in charge of the cashiers and customer service and am responsible for tracking the accuracy of the money in all the registers.
What is your other half's job?
He's a graphics designer for an ad agency based in LA. He works at home and does a lot of internet ads. He also occasionally freelances as a website designer.
What other jobs have you had?
I've done a lot of accounting work, worked in grocery stores, worked with adults with developmental disabilities, done temp office work. Oh and I owned and ran a theatre company for a couple of years.
What was your least favourite and why?
I managed the accounting department for a small business and hated it because the owner of the company was a dishonest micromanager who only hired me because she thought I'd go along and let her get away with stuff on the books!
What was your favourite and why?
I think my favorite is the one I have now. I love the people I work with, I've learned a lot and I'm happy to come to work! I loved running the theatre company but it was very stressful and I lost a lot of money.
What is your dream job?
I'm not really sure yet, but I think it's being a SAHM. I'm lucky because I think I'm gonna get the chance to try it when this little one comes. I can't wait!!

What is your job? What does it involve? I work in the office at a music supply store. I do a little of everything - I answer the phone, file paperwork, lug instruments up and down stairs, etc. Which sounds like a lot of work, but it isn't! This is the busiest time of the year, but other than June and September when we get all the big school orders and repair jobs, I have very little to do. I'm thinking of getting some sort of part time job that I can do online, or maybe taking some courses.

What is your other half's job? He's a subcontractor, but he mostly does tile setting. He and his brother have their own business, but they prefer not to have to deal with the paperwork involved, so they don't use it often.

What other jobs have you had? A million! I've worked in restaurants and bars (serving, bartending, hostessing, busing, dishwashing, cooking, baking, prep, etc), the pastry section of a huge conference centre, a dog clothing store, Le Chateau, and a bunch more I can't think of right now.

What was your least favourite and why? It's a tie between a couple of really bad restaurants (one I quit after my second day, the other I was fired and rehired 4 times in one month because the owner was so temperamental!), and Le Chateau. I am just not cut out for retail, I can't stand refolding the same shirt 25 times an hour to kill time!

What was your favourite and why? I really liked one of the restaurants I worked at. I mostly served there, but I also picked up extra shifts in every aspect of the business. I even helped renovate the bar! But that was why I had to quit, I was just too burned out on the place after working 80+ hour weeks there for years. I still pick up shifts there occasionally, which is great, since the money is fantastic and it's great to see all my old coworkers again.

What is your dream job? I want to own a restaurant someday. I can totally see myself being one of those awesome bosses that everyone loves and hates at the same time. I would also love to be a SAHM, but I don't think we'll ever be able to afford that.
