Re: GTKY: What does everyone do for a living?

  • I'm a SAHM but due to needing a new vehicle and some other stuff I will be trying to bring in a bit of side income by becoming a substitute teacher at the local High School.

  • Adding to the teacher list. I teach 1st grade! Teachers start back Monday, students start the 30th. I am really worried about my morning sickness and not sure how to handle that at the start of the year with such little ones...

    I'm a NICU nurse and also have my Masters in Nursing Education and hope to use it to teach nursing school. My husband thinks because I take care of babies for a living he won't have to do anything for ours! Ηaha. I told him I will teach him my ways!

    Sounds like my husband! I work in the lab and the first time he came up to my work I wanted to show him what I do and he got weirded out by blood samples in tubes... Haha!

  • Wow! Lots of really cool careers here!

    I am a licensed Architect. After working in the private industry for about 10 years, I took on a public role at the beginning of the year. I am now our County Architect, which has been new and exciting.

    The County has a 9-month probation period which coincides almost directly with the start of my second trimester. I'm thinking of taking my boss a cake that says, "I'M OFF PROBATION!!!! ps I'm pregnant"

    @bossmom11 my favorite thing is probably creme brûlée. It's so simple to make but it's such a crowd pleaser and I can dress it up to make it look super fancy and elegant. Other than that I love making complex French pastries. I don't mind spending a couple of days making one very fancy dessert. My mom thinks it's crazy to spend that much time on one thing to eat but I love the intricacies of it. 
    @joyful08 that's awesome! That is something I have never had but I bet you make it so good.

  • @shireeallason I'm in a somewhat similar situation. I started my job in Dec and my probation period was 6 months ending in June. I waited until April to start TTC because I don't qualify for FMLA until I have been in my job for a year. In the end it took us 4 months to conceive so i'll more then qualify for my leave but I'm planning to tell my boss in Oct after first tri. I guess being in a job for over a year before taking leave isn't that bad though. I know some women who were already pregnant when they started!

    @sweetcaroline24 I'm an ER attending. Do you know about the Physician Mom's Group on facebook. I'm pretty sure it's open to med students. What are you matching in? https://mypmg.com/

    Also if you plan on breastfeeding, there's Dr. MILK for female physicians interested in breastfeeding medicine. http://www.drmilk.org/

  • I lead internal communications for a tech start-up in San Francisco. Been doing comms for over 14 years, and this is the most incredible job I've ever had. Before this I worked for a variety of Fortune 500s, but there's something magical about building something new. 
  • @jbn999 as gross as it probably is, that job sounds cool af
    @orangecup Life. Goals.

    I love that we have so many teachers in here! I, too, am a teacher ;-) I teach high school science. I have my BS in Geology and MAEd in Ed Tech. Just started at a new school earlier this week. I'm teaching Physical Science to 9th graders, Biology to 10th graders, Environmental Science in 11th graders, and Anatomy to 12th. With a test prep.  :# Somebody reassure me that I won't die.
  • @bagowater Geology ❤❤❤❤❤.  I nearly changed my undergrad major to geology.   Love it!

    @fishsticks-n-custard Thanks for the recommendations! I hadn't heard of either site. It'd be wonderful to connect with other moms in medicine.

    I'll be applying into anesthesia, but not until next year. I decided that intern year plus an infant was just a little too much for me...

  • I'm a legal assistant (my official title)...sort of. I don't work in a law firm and I don't work for an attorney, but I do legal work (everything from real estate to business law) for the Chairman of the Board department at my company. I was brought on to keep costs down and do as much in-house that doesn't require an actual attorney.  Once the bulk of the workload is done, it is passed on to outside counsel.

  • Right now I am a regional truck driver, but not sure how that is going to work now at 6 weeks. Will just have to follow doctor's orders and hope my local position picks back up soon so I can stop the 500 mile sprint every day.
  • I'm a nurse, and work in an orthopedic hospital. I love my job, but it's very physically demanding so we'll see how that goes long term. 
  • I have 3 jobs.  None of them in my field lol. All part time. I bartend on weekends, babysit a few days a week,  and clean houses a few days a week.

  • I'm an Engineer Officer in the US military. I wish I could say I use my mechanical engineering degree, but it's mostly management and administration. We do get to do some pretty cool stuff though  ;) 

    I would like to eventually go back to school to study something in the medical field. I love the hospital environment, and would love to work directly with people.
