Re: GTKY

  • 1)  What do you currently do for a job?  And we ALL know that staying home full time is a job!!

    I was a high school French teacher for 12 years but just left the classroom to go back for my PhD part time.  I miss teaching a lot!

    2)  What was your favorite job you've ever had?

    I loved teaching.  I did not love all of the BS that teachers have to deal with.

    3)  What was the most unique job you've ever had?

    I can't say that I've had any "unique" jobs but I being a camp counselor was extremely fun!

    2)  I very much enjoy what I do now.  I love cleaning teeth.  (weird) I love my patients, and I love working with my husband every day (he's a dentist).  

    3)  Nothing too exciting, typical service jobs during college.  Then I taught preschool.

    2)  What was your favorite job you've ever had? I enjoy my profession a lot (not my current job however) so I will have to say the clinic I worked at right out of grad school.  Such great coworkers. :)

    3)  What was the most unique job you've ever had? I never really had unique jobs.  I worked retail at a sports/ski shop during grad school and I learned how to string tennis racquets.  That was pretty fun and unique.

  • 1. I've been a full time stay at home mom since we moved a year ago, but I am expecting a call with an offer tomorrow for a part-time accounting position at a non-profit that I'm very excited about - yea!

    2. My last (also part-time) job was administering a homelessness prevention grant which I loved - felt like good work, no dealing with clients, and lots of attention to detail which I thrive on.

    3. I did grocery store inventory - arriving at 3am to travel in a van to grocery stores all over the area to inventory shelf after shelf.  I guess the job itself wasn't that crazy, but the people who worked for the company were super interesting.

    2) I worked at a sno-cone stand in college, that was fun and I ate a LOT of sno-cones :)
    3) I worked in ICU at a very small hospital, so instead of specialty nursing we had tons of different illnesses ranging from heart surgeries to very ill postpartum moms to suicide attempts. Went to work daily never knowing what I would see.

    Two years, two losses and three IUIs...

    We are having TRIPLETS!

  • Speech pathologist in early intervention.

    I love the job I do now, but I worked at a movie theater in high school and that was a lot of fun! I also worked as a lab tech in a hospital and it was so interesting. I don't know if I can pick an all time favorite. Every job walking of perfect for the stage in my life.

    I delivered newspapers from the time I was 11 or 12 until I started high school. I delivered to the people in my neighborhood and an apartment building for elderly people and they always had interesting stories to tell.
