Default What do you do for a living?

I'm almost graduated from University and I'm not getting any full-time, permanent jobs at the moment in my field, and I can't live off the temp./part-time jobs.

What kind of jobs/careers do you guys have?
(If you went to college/univeristy), did you get a job in your field? Or did you go a completely different route?

I hold several State Board certifications and licensures, in an variety of fields of interest; but currently, since about two years ago, my primary job is taking care of me.

ETA: both higher-Education degrees I have earned have not necessarily played an role in obtaining employment. Most of my prior work experience has been in some form or role in working with the public. I would say that in most cases, it's not what you know or what degree you have earned, but more like who you know (social capital, for example).

"Who you know"...exactly.
I've had many careers that always spun off from some other job I had before. Networking is the art of connecting good employees with good companies.
I was blessed to retire early, and now I work more than I did when I was employed full time, but I only choose fun clients, with whom I like spending time.
Right now, my business card says I'm a PR and marketing consultant. I work with restaurants and bakeries to help them maximize their profits without breaking their always meager advertising budgets.

If people are having trouble finding work in their specific field, sometimes it helps to get their foot in the door--any door--and keep moving forward. Even volunteer work in a field close to your chosen occupation will get your face known and help you make valuable connections.

I was a director for many areas like IT, Performance Improvement, Licensure, and Accreditation among other things for 12 years at a Nonprofit. I resigned back in April. Best decision ever. Very toxic environment. I’m currently in graduate school so I can finally do what I’ve always wanted to do. I plan to be back working no later than November. I’m just looking for something now that is a straight 9-5 Monday thru Friday rather than being on call 24/7, even on vacation. I cannot wait to be doing something that I love and not just something I am good at.

Currently I am owner and operator of my own green cleaning business. I have worked previously as a CNA/PCA with emphasis on dementia/Alzheimer’s patients.

I also have a small “from home” organic dog biscuit making business.

I have considered both nursing and social work as careers. I have an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts and at least 20 credits towards my bachelor’s. With my mother’s recent illness and passing, I’m leaning towards returning to health care. I would love to be like the comforting hospice nurses who were SO good to mom...and to us.

I'm a scenic artist/sculptor. That means that I create scenery for the movies, tv and theatre that you watch. My specialty is in sculpture, so I can be called upon to make anything from an excellent copy of a classical sculpture, or an amalgam of several, to a convincing rock cliff for a stunt which involves pizza loving turtles and their careening vehicle. Faithful reproduction of the historic Copacabana palm trees? I'm your gal. Soft surfaces for stunt people to land on which look exactly like asphalt? Yup. I can do that. The work is hard and our days are long, but usually interesting.

I'm a professional sculptor. I still make my own art sometimes, but I need to set aside chunks of time off to do it. After ten intense hours of producing scenery my creative moment is usually over for the day. I really like what I do, and I'm good at it, but I'm much happier now that I've come to realize something really important about myself and my profession. I have an art career in order to finance my motorcycle adventures. Artists usually finance their art career with some other form of employ, but I'm doing it the other way around. It's weird, but I'm a lot happier now that I understand this important thing about myself.

I am a paper pusher for the State of California. Years ago, before knowing what I wanted to do with my life and having tried a number of office jobs, I was working temp at a mortgage company and found I loved the part numbers have to work and the part detective work of processing mortgages.

After 20 plus years in the private world of mortgages, I went to work for the state underwriting mortgages for lower income borrowers. I have since moved agencies and now work with grant funds to provide housing for lower income borrowers.

In a few months, I will retire from the state and just might sign up to do some temp work at mortgage companies again. Or not!

I'm disabled so I don't have a "regular" job, but I'm an artist and currently working on a project funded by a grant I recently got! I feel this is a turning point in my career as an artist.

I have been in human services for 39 years (did I just say that, omg) and social work for 30 years. I have worked in many settings in social work. I am currently full time faculty and one of the founders of an accredited Masters in Social Work program in the NYC university system. I love what I do, would like to retire but, alas, not this year. If I have to stay working this is as good as it gets: three days teaching and other days home or other work and summers off. Good retirement job for the time being. I am fortunate.

What an interesting job! Have you experimented with polymer clays for smaller jobs? You can use dryer lint mixed with Fimo to create craggy little rocks or cliffs.
I'd love to see pics of some of your creations.

My undergraduate degree is in Microbiology and I am certified as a Public Health Microbiologist, but I am not a Microbiologist.

I have a K-12 teaching credential, but I am not a teacher

My graduate degree is in Forensic Science, but I do not work in a crime lab.

I am a Quality Assurance Director for a medical device company. I ensure that our company manufactures devices that meet regulatory requirements for the US and other countries that we do business in. It's a lot of paperwork, but I enjoy what I'm doing. My education post High School is not directly relevant to the work I do today, but it showed employers that I am teachable. In my experience, it's useful to take what you learned and apply it to whatever job you have. I've worked in Research, Academia, Government, and so on. If someone were to follow my career path, they might have exited at various stops along the way.

As I pondered this questions I got a little... whoa, I've worn quite a few hats.

My education is Criminal Justice and Psychology so... I started in enforcement then …. Counselor, Traffic/Shipping, Inventory Control, Logistics, Retail Distribution and the last 15 plus has been in Customer Service / Sales / Call Center Management.

I don't think I'm done yet... there are a few more hats I'd like to try.

Yes, I've used Fimo and Sculpey for some of our projects. I haven't tried the dryer lint trick. Thanks for the tip. Are you making cliffs for model trains?

If you use Fimo and its ilk I hope you have a dedicated toaster oven for baking your projects. That stuff is super toxic and it's terrible to cook it in the oven you use for your food. I sometimes cook my projects with a heat gun and work outside when I'm using those polymer clays. One of the drawbacks to my job is that so many of the materials we use regularly are shockingly toxic.

Well, let's see.

I am a former Marine (from waaaaay back in the late 70's/early 80's). I got out for medical reasons and they medically retired me for these health issues. I then became a Registered Respiratory Therapist and worked for 20 years in the Dept. of Veterans Affairs. I was also a Union Steward for my local of the AFGE.

In 2014, my health issues, combined with having to have had both of my knees completely replaced in 2007 and 2008, I was forced to take early retirement from my federal job. Lucky for me and the wife, I have an ample income from the military (full benefits/pension) my Federal Employment pension and Social Security Disability, all of which I am able to collect.

So right now......I'm officially retired and lovin' life!!! I've been wonderfully blessed and I don't take one grain of it for granted, either!!

Cheryl, has that affected you at all or no (since I know you are careful)? Just curious.

Then I went to work as a CNA, worked weekends as a PBX operator for 2 years of Nursing School. I graduated nursing in 1976, worked 21 years as an ER Charge Nurse, 12 years as a Volunteer EMT, & A volunteer Firefighter.

I did a short stint with some "undercover work"...

I was medically retired in 1998!

My LTR of 10 years...we owned & I operated a Paint Your Own Pottery studio for 6 years.

I dabbled as a Open Cook in a pizza place, BBQ joint, and a couple other places.

My years in medical were the most rewarding as were my years in Rescue & Fire.

Now I just sit beneath the palm trees, do arts & crafts, about to become a Hospice volunteer, and am a proud parent of the cutest little red dachshund, named Hope. She is 10 & blind, BUT don't tell her she is...
