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:

I make high end windows at a very green all American company.  We made windows for a few of Trump's buildings, we make lots of windows for fancy condos and govenment buildings.  We have some cool products that are made to survive explosions, others for hurricanes and psych windows.  More importantly I like the people I work with, there are a few women there and we all get along well unlike other jobs I've had.  I love the old guys tho, they love hanging out with the ladies.  Most of them are so funny and  really make the time fly by. 

I plan to save enough to start a family and not work there until my kids would be in school.  Last year we bought a home in the country with land for hunting.   I love having a new house, I really love gardening and cooking in my beautiful kitchen.  I can't wait to have kids to play in our big yard and to take into our woods.

That sounds like fun!

I love the country & land. We just made the switch from a house on 10 acres to a townhouse. We just didn't have the time to keep up with everything. I miss my garden & flowers though :smileysad: We have a small area in the front where I was able to put in some lilies, rose bush, butterfly bush... but it's not the same.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

I work as an office assistant in a P.A. law firm that specializes in a couple brances of subjects. The part of my job that keeps me the most dedicated to the sometimes stressful environment of deadlines to projects/assignments on top of my anxiety disoeder along with my depression aspbergers syndrome and other disorders that can tend to interfere internally I am pretty good at keeping them buried (otherwise I wouldn't have my job!)  is the the health care aspect. even though I am a "bottom feeder" and not a front line warrior i may just deliver mail copys courier services and am pretty much a do whatever they ask me to do person and am not a lawyer or paralegal,  I still am happy to fight for something  I believe matters. health care especally  the  aspect in the health care genre regarding mentally disabled indivuduals. I am not better or worse than anyone. I just am glad that I am trying to help even if it's in the tinest of ways to make a difference in this world even if it means just office work. if I didn't have this sense of purpose or morality streak. I would proably burn out considering I internalize my stress from the day and take it home with me sometimes. but that could be said of anyone in regards to internalizing stress it's just a part of almost every job discription and it's something we just have to learn to deal with (and like the majority of people I am still working on that! & I think I always will be LOL)

Breaking my arm and then more or less finishing high school :smileyvery-happy: I was going to get a summer job at Ulta but that's not happening now. I'm gonna go with Etsy Trawler. That's a thing, right?

I am finishing up high school this month making me just 18.. I plan on going to beauty school, specializing in makeup artistry. College was never something i had in mind even though my parents would pay for me. Im really passionate about makeup artistry and have been for years. Who knows where i will end up, but its been a dream and im willing to work my way up to get where i want to be. And possibly start a cosmetics line.. but that wouldnt be until i am settled meaning im at the point in life where i can fully 100% support myself

What field?

Re: What is your current profession in life?

I am currently a Medical Assistant at a Dermatology office.  I love every aspect of my job from meeting new people to bandaging them up after surgery.  I feel like I make patients' days easier for them to get through, especially after they've had Mohs surgery (skin cancer surgery that can last anywhere from 2 to 12 hours depending on what's going on.)  I have many other aspirations and goals to fulfill within my life, but I am very glad I chose the medical field.

Well since we've moved to Idaho it's been very hard to get a job that isn't some odd miles away (we live in a small town outside of boise) with only one car so I don't have one but I do photography as a hobby. I would love to say it's a job but no one wants to pay me haha Boise is a college town so most "models" that I work with say they don't have money. It's extremely annoying having so many ideas for photoshoots but not being able to afford the props for it and if I was not being able to get my money back on it. Oh well but I love it anyways.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

I completely and most utterly agree with you on the photography hobby/job. I come from a small town as well outside of New Orleans (45 minute drive). It's tough, and I realized that small towns in America aren't really meant for this coming of age society unless you're in agriculture. I love it so much how you put quotations around the word "models". Haha models aren't models unless they get paid (period). I don't care what people say, when a client comes to me and says they are a model, ok I'm expecting to get some amount of fortune for my work or an exchange/trade off. 

 

Back in 2006 when I didn't have a full-time job (aka broke as photographer) I went to thrift stores, yard sales, and flea markets for props. It worked out, and met some connections along the way. I'm always up for crazy photography shoots involving explicit forms though, its just getting the right kinda person willing to be in my shoots. Haha 

 

I really hope you find some connections maybe even through networking. I see the younger me in your post and I only wish the best for you :smileyhappy:

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Yeah my first job was at Sears Portrait studio back in 2004 ( got it after having my senior portraits taken) then when I got married and moved down to Virginia I worked at Glamour Shots until about 2006 when the store was relocating. I liked working at the studios but it wasn't the type of photography I loved so I bought a camera and started my own around the fall of 2006 as well. 

 

 In Virginia I had alot of connections and great girls to work with that most were willing to pay me if not provided all the props for the shoot. But since moving I only have a few girls like that, ones I know that I will get wonderful images out of even if it's for a trade or free. I'm just so tired of new "models" messaging me all the time saying "I love your work, your amazing and would love to work with you...for trade" and then most of their images are either so so or phone shots (I hate photo shots) It's like really I don't understand at all. 

 

   Yes the thrift stores and stuff are a great idea and I really need to force myself to go up to boise more and check them out. ^_^

Why Boise? Why?!  I guess the only thing north is SEL, Boise is interesting though, there's a little coffee shop I like downtowright at does mochas with dilettante chocolate, it's delicious! I hear you on job hunting in Idaho though, not much opportunity for careers that allow you to advance :/

My husband is in the Airforce and was stationed here so I didn't really have a choice. All my friends wondered why I was moving there too haha.

Recently received Masters in Public health. I also just received my certification in public health I am currently studying for the Registered Environmental Health Sanitarian Exam. I was in the Army before my Masters as a medical service officer. I am not sure if I want to return to the military or work for the government but God has blessed me to be in a career field that I really love.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Wow, I have to say I'm really impressed!  I think a lot of people struggle to find something that they're passionate about, and it looks like you've definitely found your calling.  Congratulations on your recent degree/certification too.

I'm a stay home mom and take care of my 2 year old son. It is the hardest job I have ever done (being "on-call" 24-7).

Amen sista! I used to think that I had it hard until I had a child. Put's other jobs to shame.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

even though I seriously think I was born to be a mom I still have a strong love for math. I'm currently a stay at home mom to a beautiful daughter named, Aniston Paige who will be 3 on thanksgiving. She is my world! But before her, I was a accountant at a aerospace company in Texas. I love math, I love accounting. Something about getting to the bottom figure drives me, plus numbers never lie. death and taxes huh?! I don't regret staying home and caring for her. I'm blessed to have this opportunity. I think raising our children is very important. Their foundation is even more important. As soon as so is ready to go to school and spread her little wings, I plan on going back to numbers. :smileyhappy:
