  • I am a PhD student in neuroscience. Specifically I am researching the effects of psychoactive drugs on the brain and behavior. (Yes, like cocaine) :)

    I love teaching. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. 

    I hate researching. haha. I work with animals and it is a stain on my soul. 

    ETA: Dream job is a stay at home mom for a few years, then teaching a few classes at the community college or local college.

     What do you do for a living? I work for a large urban university on the graduate side. I deal with graduate programs/curriculum & recruitment.

    What do you like best about your job? The energy on a college campus. Nothing beats it in my opinion. :)

    If you could have any job right now, what would it be? I love group exercise & would much rather be teaching group ex classes than sitting at this desk. :)

  • What do you do for a living? I'm a Loan Officer in the financial aid department at a university.

    What do you like best about your job? Peak season really only happens twice a year so other than that, it's not super stressful. Plus, it's the school I graduated from so I love still being on campus.

    What do you like least about your job? It's not really that exciting. Hah, somedays I'm just really bored. Plus, ticked off students can really be annoying.

    If you could have any job right now what would it be? I want to be a SAHM for a few years then get my teacher's certification and teach. I really want to teach Middle School English.

  • What do you do for a living? Tech writer for a gov't contractor

    What do you like best about your job? Flexible hours and easy going atmosphere.

    What do you like least about your job? The waiting around for something to do. I spend lots of time waiting on people to get back to me.

    If you could have any job right now what would it be?  Mattress tester - I am exhausted today!

  • What do you do for a living?

    I am a metallurgical engineer in a steel mill.  My job is to make steel more efficiently, better and cheaper. 

    What do you like best about your job?

    Before getting pregnant I loved working out in the mill doing experiments.

    What do you like least about your job?

    Being pregnant in a steel mill is awful.  Very few women, puking in dirty steel mill bathrooms, it is always super hot or super cold and it usually smells terrible.

    If you could have any job right now what would it be?

    After college, but before I went to graduate school I worked as an engineer at a very small research facility- I loved designing experiments and the freedom and autonomy that working for such a small company afforded me.  Big companies (where I work now) bring big politics. I miss just working- pure science.

    Please forgive my typos! I'm not as dumb as my iphone would like you to believe :)

  • I am a CPA working in Corporate Accounting.

    My immediate boss is fantastic and I don't feel stressed all the time like I did at my previous job.

    My boss's boss can be a huge beyotch.

    I'd love an active job like that!

    I have so much energy most of the day & I hate wasting it in front of a computer. Pre-pregnancy - I was working on getting certified in different group ex formats & looking at getting ACE or AFAA certified so I could either do that on the side...or eventually if H gave the go ahead to be a SAHM....I could still do something fun/adult time & make extra $$. I'm also a Beachbody Coach (they are the creators of P90X, Turbo Jam, etc), which gives a nice cushion so my plan is to mix the two eventually & have that pay for the kiddo extras/college fund. All that fun stuff.  ;)

     

    Now that my preggo body hates cardio - I've had to put a hold on the trainings until post-baby...still thinking I can make the goal work starting next summer!

     

    Ok, long response! SHEESH! Let me know if you ever want more info on the group ex stuff...I've done some research and have some friends that have recently finished some of the training. :)

  • I'm a pastry chef, and working on starting my own business.  I'm going to start small and sell at farmers markets, possible getting an ice cream cart to sell ice cream sandwiches on the street.  

    I love working in the kitchen, alone with my thoughts (or music and podcasts)!  I used to work in an office, and I felt chained to the computer.  I was even in a creative field (architecture) but I feel more creative decorating cookies.

    Right now my least favorite part about my job is not having the discipline to move on the business.  I'm distracted by the baby, even though I quit my job and decided to start a business so that I can stay at home with the baby!

    I'd love to have the cutest, most popular bakery in my town.  I have some strong competition, though! 

  • What do you do for a living?I'm a grooming salon manager.What do you like best about your job?I LOVE being able to spend my day with dogs!  I also love being able to do fun haircuts.What do you like least about your job?I love the girls I work with, but being the boss in a room full of women is tough.  I really hate fleas.  They disgust me.  It amazes me how gross some people's pets are.If you could have any job right now what would it be?I really love my job.  I would like to own my OWN salon though, instead of working for a company.  In a bigger city too.  I love grooming the frou-frou dogs, and here every dog we see is just shaved down.

  • What do you do for a living?  I'm a patent lawyer.  I used to be a chemical engineer, so now I mostly work with chemical, biotech, and mechanical technologies.

    What do you like best about your job? I love learning about all the new technologies/inventions that are out there and applying my engineering problemsolving to my patent cases.

    What do you like least about your job? Having to bill my time in 6 minute increments.

  • What do you do for a living?

    Guest Services agent at a resort. Basically front desk, checking people in and out and making sure they're happy.

    What do you like best about your job?

    It's fairly low stress.. except in the middle of summer. In the winter we have mostly older people from Northern BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba staying long term and they're super easy to deal with and basically treat me like one of their grandkids lol. I'm so excited for them to come back this winter!

    What do you like least about your job?

    Dealing with high maintenance guests who think nothing of treating you like crap because you're a lowly check in girl. I'm so glad I'll still be on mat leave next summer lol!

    If you could have any job right now what would it be?

    I've always wanted to do event planning but I think it would be hard to get going in my town because there are so many already. Moving isn't an option at this point because I really want my kids to grow up here. DF is hoping to get into a nursing program so ideally what I hope happens once he's finished school is that he'll be able to make enough that I'll just have to work part time so we don't have to ship our kids off to a babysitter on a constant basis. I do want to work though. I'm not the total stay at home mom type lol.

  • What do you do for a living? I'm a medicinal chemist (trained in organic chemistry) working in drug discovery.

    What do you like best about your job?  Well, when I'm not PG, I love coming up with ideas, making new compounds in the lab, and seeing my ideas get tested (especially when my ideas work!)

    What do you like least about your job?  Right now I am absolutely miserable sitting at my desk working on patents all day.  I feel like this PG is crawling along because I'm so bored everyday.  When I am in the lab, research can be stressful.

    If you could have any job right now what would it be?  My job is not too bad, but if money wasn't a factor, I would probably work at an animal shelter or cat rescue.  I always said if I won the lottery, I would open a cat rescue and hire an employee to help manage it.
