    Yes, I am happy with my current job. I have teaching genes I think! I inhered my teaching skills from my mother who was a superintendent in Primary Schools. I became a Physician, Neonatologyst in Cuba and for family issues I decided not to go to the USLME (Medical Boards) and I became an Anatomy and Physiology Professor at College. I am a full professor now and with the applications and background that I have, I really enjoy what I am doing right now.

    I don't have a job to be unhappy with. I have an unpaid internship that covers only transportation and a full credit load. I am searching for one though.icon_biggrin.gif

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

    not really but i'm trying to get a new one.

    (just in case anybody's hiring, lol)

    I can supply a resume upon request showing my employment for the last 10 years, of which four were in an administrative office position, and six were in customer service.

    here are my proficiencies

    My software proficiencies are as follows:
    MS Office (excel, access, powerpoint, word, etc) with university classes taken/being taken and hands-on experience since 1995
    Adobe Photoshop /Illustrator with University classes taken (have/use wacom tablet) and hands-on experience since Version 7.0 (2002) and CS5 (2010) respectively
    Adobe Acrobat with hands-on experience since version 7.0 (2005)
    Some raw 3d modeling (maya/hexagon) with university class taken in Maya
    DAZ Studio with hands-on experience since version 1.7 (2010 about)
    Smith Micro Poser
    Google SketchUp with hands-on experience since its mainstreaming around 2006
    AVID with university classes taken

    I am also good at finding new ways of using programs and also MacGyvering solutions in a pinch. Please find attached examples of my work, among them a jpeg rendering of a vector graphic designed in Illustrator, a budget spreadsheet built in excel, and a catering menu that was to be emailed to potential clients in PDF form. This was built in MS Publisher of all things (department budget prohibited the purchase of Adobe Acrobat or any other software for that matter) then exported to MS Word and from there, exported as a finished PDF. A headache to edit later until it was rebuilt but it went out to the clients on time.

    I am 100% fluent in PC (can run windows PC with only a keyboard) and capable with Mac OS. Also familiar with emerging technologies like the Google ChromeOS, on which I am 100% fluent. I also type a recently-verified 72wpm.

    I have experience dealing with hardware as well. I have upgraded and modified my workstation at home, the "Beast," several times (now running dual monitors and x64 architecture for maximum multitasking). I am much more likely to try to physically repair something before I throw it out and replace it.

    The only real, concrete problem I have with my work/life is that I often find there are not enough hours in the day for me to be sufficiently thankful for them both.

    Current job involves sitting in front of a computer for most of the day replying to emails and being in meetings and conference calls... although there's no Hawaiian shirt day or any printers that I'd like to beat the living shit out of... yet. Would I call it a dream job? No way! But it pays the bills and is somewhat comfortable with the flexibility of occasionally working from home, which helps at times as I hate driving in rush hour traffic. I think most people just end up being comfortable with the routine and sticking with it for the sake of it.

    An ideal job for me would be something in travel and tourism in an exotic, sunny location... but I've already looked into it and the pay isn't brilliant, hence the comfort factor of the 9 to 5 office job.

    Having said that, I don't plan on staying in this comfort zone for long and am constantly exploring ideas on starting up my own business.

    No not at all. But with the current economic conditions, it is going to have to do for now. I am applying for civil service positions in the Buffalo Area and I have already taken two civil service exams. I am sick and damned tired of living hand to mouth week after week and going nowhere. icon_sad.gif

    Absolutely happy with being self employed and running my own investment firm... but I also have interesting side ventures which mean alot. I donate some of my time and I have a number of interests that keep me really busy, some fitness related. Awesome!

    I'm in healthcare and I love my job. My first career was in investment banking and I hated it. Switching careers was the best decision I ever made.

    My boss skipped town last week. He owed me two months salary and about $20,000 in commission. I start a new job next week. I'll let you know if I love it.
