I worked my way up in admin and ended up with a great job in government
Then life happened and I had a career change, studied and became a nurse.

Life happened again and I’m unable to work now. I do some art on the side ... pretty disappointing tbh

I’m an IT business analyst, was a developper/programmer in my younger days.

I’m also a freelance writer/corrector on the side.

I have a part time job in IT right now but I want to start my own business in the future. I have a few nice business ideas but I need to test them first to reduce the risks. I found info on https://spdload.com/blog/cost-of-mvp/ about how much does it cost to build new mvp.

After crashing out of biology research and then non-profit management, I work as the early morning lifeguard at a couple YMCAs and do online search engine results rating.  They are both not super well-paid and socially definitely not acceptable, but they've given me the most mental stability.

I work as a lab tech for a recycling company. I’m currently trying to find a better position to hopefully earn more money. I now have a bachelors degree and 2.5 years experience. I hope I get one of the jobs I’m interviewing for but I don’t think I’m the best at interviewing.

I like the diversity we have here!  I haven't posted in a while (as in years), but I love this forum of peers.  I work full time as an office manager for a clinic that does cosmetic injectables (Botox, lip/ cheek filler, that kind of thing).  So everyone who comes in is conscious of their appearance- from very young women to seniors.  Everyone is trying to look their best on the outside, as I imagine we all want to feel good enough on the inside.  

 

I also sing in a band, so that's my weekend gig.

I work in a doctor's office. I make sure the records are in the charts for the patients.
Most of my work is on the pc. I love my job. I used to work two retail jobs and I was so done and I had to move on. I'm 33.

Freelance camera technician in the film industry. Very physically intense job. Very long and erratic hours, early starts. I love it because I get to travel and it’s an interesting and challenging job but it makes it very hard to maintain control over food.

I teach a class of first-, second-, and third-graders, and I love my little cuties! But I hate having contact with older students, they have so little respect!
