    I was laid off back in January after being Dir. of PR for a public company. I've found myself enjoying time off and contracting,but realized office life might not be for me. I'm always interested to see what other people do for work - especially those who are not confined by the 9-5 or cubicle.

    So, my question(s) is...

    If you love your job, what do you do?
    If you could do anything as a career what would it be?

    I'm a slasher. i.e. I have a few different streams of income.

    I'm a creative person, and write/perform music. I've also just launched a record label. But it doesn't cover bills.

    I also have a knack for office-based work. I currently work freelance and part-time in a start-up property sourcing company as Operations Manager.

    I love both.

    I'm a Flight Attendant. I love it for now, I am at a moment of my life where I wanna see the world, visit every corner of the planet, and also have plenty of days off while still making enough money to survivre through all of this...

    This being said, I know that I will not keep this job all my life. I aspire to bigger things, and am currently completing a masters degree in order to reach these biggers things icon_smile.gif

    If I could do anything as a career, I'd be a rockstar.

    Wow, that is inspiring that you just started your own record label and that you are actually making your passion your profession (or in the process of doing so).

    Right now I'm a student (Media Studies) and I am also an aspiring writer-director. Would also love to develop my own websites, maybe get into television writing.

    All I need now is the will power icon_sad.gif

    Right now I do Medicaid-based case management for children's mental health. If I could do anything though, I'd be a registered dietitian working in pediatrics or weight management

    Currently a Tower Technician. Work in telecommunications, climb towers and fix/change out radios, antennas, and microwaves. However, I would love to study microbiology. I found that very interesting when I was taking science human anatomy and physiology in college. I've got to save money to go back to school since parents won't help (they want to retire and I can't blame them at all) and I don't want to be in debt up to my eyes.

    I'm a recruiting manager for a healthcare I.T. firm and I like my company a lot. I've been doing this for 16 years and my advice is:
    1a) Find an ok job in a great company with great people.
    OR
    1b) Find a great job in an ok company with great people.

    2). Figure out your strengths and do a job that clearly caters to your strengths. If you were a Dir of PR, I'd imagine sales, marketing, university relations, promotions, or any consulting role. If you're savvy with social media, start tweeting your expertise and you might find the job offers coming to you. Good luck.

    Thanks man. Starting a label is something I always wanted to do, and I finally feel - at 30 - is the right time for me. Unfortunately, it's not the right time, in terms of how the music industry is right now; but that's not gonna stop me trying.
