Career ... It's a decision that we make. Sometimes people follow their passion. Others though are practical and practice a career for their financial well being. So, are you happy with your career? If given a choice, what is the ideal career for you?

I don't have a career. I have a job. I don't like it. I am only there for the pay cheque and I am finding that I need to drag myself there evertday and it is getting harder. sigh... I would love to be: a stay at home mom/house wife... a genetic engineer or a writer of fiction or a farmer, yes you read properly, a cattle farmer.... Those would be my dream jobs

Hi PunkMcPunk. Yeah, its so hard to wake up in the morning and realizing that you have to go to a job that you really don't care of ... you just need it. I hope that you can get a job is leaning on a career like the ones that you have mentioned.

Yes. I am very much happy with my career. I guess this is the company that has a very light and happy working environment. (DUTY FREE PHILIPPINES) What is very challenging in my career is that I am Communication Arts graduate but they accepted me in an INTERNAL AUDIT DIVISION. Though I am just an Audit Assistant, I find this place interesting and lots of opportunities and room for improvement. The benefits are good. We have 13-16th month pay and a monthly corporate incentive and allowance on top of our monthly salary. We have also medical insurances and life insurances. But of course, since my childhood dream is becoming a television reporter, I would work for this. I would study, enroll in a personaltiy development a school and join tv workshops.

I'm in a career right now that I never thought to find myself in. Everyone hates what I represent, and it means more money going out that most really don't have. I'm a bill collector, and I've dealt with them most of my adult life. It's funny how I landed the job, and started doing really well in it, with how nice of a person I am. Anyway, what I'd really love to be doing is something where I'm helping people in a hands-on way, not telling them they need to pay up. I'd much rather be working in a lab somewhere, drawing blood and testing it for diseases and things like that. I want to work with people that way, not on the phone without any face-to-face interaction.

hi xlilkttiebanix. being a collector has always been branded as an unpopular job since ancient times .. remember Zacharias or was it Zacheus in the bible. but i guess somebody has to do the job ... and people like you are heroes for your company.

I am very happy with my career but my only complaint is my salary as I feel that teachers should be paid more than they are now. I enjoy being an instructor and working with adults with disabilities and help them be successful. I may have to look for a better paying job eventually since the cost of living keeps going up. My other choice for a career would be something in computers like an IT person or webpage designer or something similar.

I am happy as a writer, but I'd be even happier if my books were selling more. Some day, they will. the more people know about my writing, the more books they will buy. I guess it just takes time. But I've got one out so far, another one on the way, things can only get better. I've already sold 100 copies of my cookbook.
