What is your current profession in life?

Whether you're in school, an aspiring makeup artist, an edgy hairstylist, a stay-at-home-super mom, the 9-5 desk junky, runnning around in your scrubs, or ya just don't know yet...what is your current occupation in life? *If you list school, please share what degree you're working toward* Everybody feel free to list pointers and opinions. This isn't a thread about who is better, what is better, and how it is better. This is about what differences we are making in life :smileyhappy:

Ohhh bio! That was me a few years back! Best of luck! I know it drove me crazy sometimes but was worth it in the end! :-)

@arielaaaaaaaa- Don't ever let anyone back you into a corner and make you quit what you love doing. Be strong and show them your great and can do just as good as them or even better.

I'm a office manager/nursing do all in a dermatologist office given the fact I'm trying very hard and have been trying to break away for a very loong time because we have gotten to the point in life where I don't have to work now,but I can't seem to hire anyone that he likes. I've been with them for 12 years almost 13 in June so it's not that easy just to walk away. Not sure how it's gonna end.

This is a cool topic! I'm currently a senior in high school. I graduate on June 23. I am going to college for Accounting and doing the MBA program so I have my Bachelor's and Master's degrees by age 22 instead of 25, 26 or 27. 

 

I don't want to be an accountant for the rest of my life and sit at a desk from 9-5 working all day everyday. Maybe for a little bit of time. I like to do fun things during the day, move about and socialize with people and work hard at the same time. I can't sit still for long periods of time. It's too difficult. But I do want that MBA degree under my belt though.

 

Eventually I want to become a licensed MUA and nail tech. I want to start off by freelancing a little bit then if I get the chance to, I want to work for either Sephora or MAC as a MUA ( I love both but I'm leaning more toward Sephora) to build my resume and work my way up. For the nail tech part I would like to do that on my own time. I eventually want to have my own cosmetic company and beauty salon when I'm older.  Maybe based in New York or LA, I don't know.

 

My parents don't approve of the whole MUA /nail tech/company/salon dream of mine. They have an extreme distaste of it. They're just mad because I don't want to be a doctor like everyone else in my family is.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Thats a really good plan you have. I wish i had just gone to college after graduating, But i was no where near ready to leave, and I had high ambitions and it would take years and years to do what i want to do, So i decided to try Cosmetology, get a good job then college so i have a way to make a living while in school! My parents didn't completely like my plan, My whole family didn't like it! No one in my family has gone to college and i was the smart one who alwasy had A's and did so well, so my parents were alittle upset. But in the end, they love me, and support any decision i make. I'm sure your family will learn to accept your choices.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

The only person in my family that supports my dreams is the my uncle who is the elder of my dad's twin brothers. He watched me do my aunt's makeup and nails and loves the ideas I have in my special notebook that I want to do when I become a  MUA. He is a certified hair stylist but he is also a scientist too. I don't get to see him often, maybe once every two or three years but I text him and talk to him on the phone all the time.

This is a very interesting topic, I love hearing about others lives.

I'm in my last semester of university going for a biology & psychology double major.  Right now I work as a TA teaching BIO 103 labs -introductory biology for non-health professions. I start medical school this fall.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Good luck with medical school! And congratulations!

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Its great to see what everyone does the rest of the day  I really feel like I know some of you :smileyhappy:  

 

Oddly enough, my background doesnt have too much to do with makeup at all!  I started off in Early Childhood Development and wanted to be somewhere in education for young children.  About 90% through, I realized that even though I love kids, the demands were much too hard when I had my own baby to care for & had to decline a few opportunities.  

 

Right after, I found myself a Kaiser Permanente, credentialing physicians prior to bringing them on to care for patients.  I have about 6 years of experience in the medical-ish field :smileyhappy:

 

Throughout the years, I've freelanced as a MUA & obtained my makeup cert.  When it was available, I jumped at the opportunity to work for Sephora... now here I am!

 

I do plan on taking some classes this fall, just not sure what for yet :smileysad:  Possibly some Marketing & Business courses.  Sigh... school.

 

xo, Mia

It's definitely intense working and going to school, and I'm sure it'll be crazier for you than I since you have a little one! But it'll definitely be worth it if that's what you hope for! :smileyhappy:

Re: What is your current profession in life?

I'm a 9-5 junkie.

 

I don't use either of my international relations degrees (BA, MA), but they were a great experience!

 

If I were to get any more specific, I'd probably be identifiable since my company's pretty niche. :smileysurprised:

Re: What is your current profession in life?

I can give this tidbit- I do a lot of graphical design even though I never went to school for it.  A lot of having a good eye comes from practice- and can be learned even without formal training.

 

That said, I was always creative growing up and (duh) love to experiment with my makeup, nails, etc.

I agree, we are relatively similar. Always had an "eye" for graphic design. That's how I got started at the company I currently work for actually.

 

Eat, breathe, and sleep Adobe :smileywink:

Re: What is your current profession in life?

This is an awesome thread!  I am in my third year of college.  I'm an English major with a minor in Education.  With that combination, I am working on being licensed to teach 7th through 12th grade, but I really want to teach at the high school level.  I have always loved reading and writing, and I believe my grades illustrate my ability at the subject, so I have my fingers crossed for the future!

 

With all the work I put into school, I don't have a full time job.  I have a work study job on campus and I help a lot around the house since my parents are both on day shift.  I should start a cleaning business lol.

 

After a few years of teaching, I would love to go to a cosmotology school to get my nail tech license.  With the summers off, I need something to work on if I cannot teach summer school.  I'm the type of person who has to be doing something.  I literally cannot sit still lol.

I can't sit still either lol! Good luck with school!! Based off previous nail posts, you should definitely be a nail tech! You'd be amazing!!

Re: What is your current profession in life?

  love this thread! Im a fraud investigator for a corporation. Sounds more exciting than it is :/  my passion is writing. i am in the preliminary stage of writing my first full length novel. 

 

its interesting to hear what everyone does in real life.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Its about a teens descent into Schizophrenia from her point of view. Total fiction. Im still interviewing people that suffer from this horrible madness. Theres definitely alot more to it than I thought and different degrees that it effects people. So  im hoping to have all my research done by the end of may and begin writing In June. This has honestly been alot more labor intensive than i orginally thought especially with kids and work. LOL. but i plan to use Amazon to publish so I have that figured out at least!
