Is the Job your in now, related to what you've studied in school?

I studied massage therapy and Chinese medicine in school. After graduating, I continued for awhile. But, now I'm working as an English teacher in another country. I guess I just needed a break from touching people. What about you? Did you continue do what you've studied in school.

I went to school to become a paralegal and I haven't worked in that field in many years. I found working for lawyers very stressful. Right now I am teaching computers to preschoolers and I just went to class to become a Reiki healer. So, you have needed a break from touching people, but I find it to be a very bonding experience. I guess we all need to do what's best for us when the time is right.

Being in a health profession has its rewards. To see people in pain before getting on the table, then to see them practically hopping off smiling, is just great. But, after awhile one do need a break from what they do and evaluate whether they will do it forever. Maybe one day I'll go back to helping others again. Have fun helping others, I know I did.

I finished travel and tourism course and I ended up in customer service industry, so I guess it's somewhat related, I'm not sure. I'm trying to get into tourism industry, but I haven't found a great opportunity yet. I'm looking for something where I can get paid a lot and still be able spend time with my family.
