    Retail - No, but I make the best of it. Then again I am still going through college so it pays the bills and gives me a little more spending money :-)

    Yes and No. So far, I think the yes part of it still outweighs the no part of it ... so unless they lay me off anytime soon or I really piss them off, here I'll be for now.

    I've always liked it but after 30 years I'm wondering if I need something different. Retirement is close but I just need a tad bit more to make ends meet. icon_cry.gif

    I work full-time as a Sales Associate for Macy's in the Men's Department. 8 hours a day, five days a week. And what's worse is that I find myself yawning throughout the entire day and i can't stop. lol.

    My dream job is to be a published Author. icon_biggrin.gif

    Not this week! But I think what's important is that I can drive there every day and feel ok about it. Sometimes even excited.

    Starting from 6th grade, I first wanted to be a poet, and then an English teacher and then a Psychology professor.

    I'm now a professor and I teach Psychology and Philosophy. That was definitely my dream job and I love it. 6 months ago I also became the dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences at our college. So, I kind of over-shot my goal. This new job is challenging me in ways that I never imagined, in a good way. I have to develop parts of myself that I'm not used to using, like the "super social" self, and the "bossy" self, and the "detailed" self, and the "paperwork" self, and also the "big vision, now make it happen" self. I'm enjoying this, but I never imagined or planned on doing this position. I find myself asking "what next?" I'd like to do amazing things while I'm in this position. My soul is kind of on a quest right now.

    My direct answer to your question: Yes, I love what I do, it is my dream job, and I absolutely am following my passion. I feel like there is something next. It's something neat. I can only tell it's coming, but I'm not sure what it is yet.

    At this stage yes! I work part time for the government facilitating health programs and my other work is dietitian private practice. I like meeting new people and essentially being on my own most of the time. It's independent, flexible, different and you get a real insight into humanity. I'm grateful for it.

    I love my job...it gives me a lot of responsibility for my age and forces me to work/think harder than I've ever had to before. I couldn't ask for a better job out of college; it's environmentally friendly chemical synthesis...I just wish the location was better.

    Software engineer ... I'm not happy when I'm not kept busy. I hate being bored at work. Also I'd prefer a slightly different location right now.

    Tower technician. I like the outdoors, but hate being on a tower for hours on end. Work rain, snow, or shine. One hell of a workout some days, it's the proper motivation I need to go back to school and take things seriously. Can't wait for the chance to go back! I'm still debating on what I want to go back for though. It's a toss up between microbiology, chemistry, linguistics, or something with the winery business.

    Happy?

    Resigned is more accurate.

    I have a steady job with (barely) adequate pay, an excellent benefit package (paid sick leave, vacation, overtime after 8 hours per day, 40 hour work week and voluntary overtime) and one of the best early-retirement packages available in today's world (for those who are not corporate CEO's)....that I will take advantage of at age 60 (or earlier!)

    My long term job has nothing to do with my field of studies in college; but it has kept me at home, in the city that I "grew up" in, around my family & circle of friends, in one of the most interesting cities in the USA.

    Compared to other better educated, smarter people out there in the "Real World"; perhaps I'm not doing so badly.
