And do you like your job? Is it a job you plan on staying with for a long time?

Well where should I start? :) My favorite job is my at home job. I sit on the computer and key Bills for a company in Dallas. My next job that I really enjoy is my bartending job at the ballpark. I get to watch baseball, and make easy money getting people drunk! My las job is called creative Airbrush Tattoos, These are fake tattoos that last around a week. Its great, I go to festivals, and birthday parties, and the best job is in Padre. we go there once a year for a sand building competition and do tattoos for a few hours each day, then go play on the beach! hmm, actually I dont know which one is my favorite any more. I love them all.

I am a recruitment consultant myself and basically my job would be conducting interviews with different people daily and see if they would meet our clients' requirements. At first, it was quite fun to meet different and have interesting conversations. But maybe I have met too many during these years and I start to get bored with it. I have indeed quitted my job and waiting for my last day in September, then I would look for something else just to change the environment. Sometimes I do think a change is good!

Yes I agree, sometimes change is good. My husband has changed jobs several times just to try something new. You never know if you'll like something else if you don't try it.

Yes I believe a change is good because otherwise work would become routine and dull. I am actually looking forward to the change and am excited about it! Yes like you said, I never know if I would find something I really like.

I am a 911 Dispatcher. I take incoming calls into the local Police station and answer 911 calls. I then dispatch Police/Fire/EMS as needed. I also deal with the police dept over the radio as far as traffic stops, etc. I like my job, I have always enjoyed helping people, and what better way? I also speak spanish fluently so I help out with translating as well when needed. I plan on retiring from here.

I am a stay-at-home mom and also run my own in-home daycare. I have been doing this for 6 months now and love it. I love being able to spend the time with my kids and also enrich the lives of other children while their parents work.

I started my own home daycare almost 20 years ago. During that time I did teach in a daycare center for 1 school year. I am much happier with my home daycare. I love being at home.

I used to commute and work in an office. I get so stressed out because of the 2 hour commutes back and forth and my little claustrophobic cubicle. No time to socialize that much because we had to work and our bosses was breathing down our necks. I quit the job because it was affecting my health so I said to my boss in my mind "Take this job and shove it!" and I left. Now I work at home. It doesn't pay as much as my other job though but I'm happy. Recently, I got a job @ LiveOps for extra cash. They hire home based agents to answer inbound calls for informercials :-)

I'm a clinical hypnotherapist (helping people quit smoking, lose weight, etc). I work from an office in my home & I LOVE my job. It's not quite busy enough but I very much enjoy the work. I am also a student midwife. And I feel quite confident I will love that career just as much.

I work in an office that caters to mining. I am a laboratory analyst/ chemist specifically for the analysis of minerals, ores, soil, metallugical products to quantitatively determine their composition. It is a job which is in line with the degree I finished. It is my first job and still my job up to now. It is an interesting job, but like any other job, it becomes boring and monotonous doing the same job everyday.

I am a sahm and love it! I hate working outside of the home. I enjoy not having to be somewhere at a certain time everyday. I can do what I want when I want, but the downfall is there isn't a 2nd paycheck coming in which is needed these days especially when there are 6 of us.

I work from home doing a number of things AVON, ChaCha guide, inbound telemarketing. I am sure I will stay with AVON for a very long time and ChaCha too. Not sure I am liking the telemarketing anymore but who knows. I have looked into an outside job just to get out of the house while the girls are at school but we will see what happens.

I do like my job. I am a Vice-Principal at a local elementary school. It is a job which has many rewards. However, I do miss the teaching role that I did for so many years. It is really a different world going into administration. Nevertheless, I plan to stick with it for some time. cheers,

I am a full time college student, so I haven't really started my actual career yet. I'm in music performance though, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to get a job playing for a professional orchestra once I'm totally done with school. I'm playing with a local professional group just part time right now while I'm in school, so hopefully that will help me out with something to put on a resume later! lol

I am a student and i enjoy being a student. Unfortunately, i'll have to enter the corporate world after 1 year or so. Don't know whether then i would be enjoying everything the same way or not. Of course, when join the job, i won't stay there for a long time. With some experience, I'm gonna shift to other companies for higher salaries.

I do my part to help make America fatter. I work for a company that sells drive-through intercom systems to fast food restaurants. The work is pretty easy, not really too challenging. I will probablt be here until another opportunity arises where I can make more money because I get a lot of time to goof around while at work(like I am right now). But it's not something I want to do forever,booking orders and answering phones. Not my ideal job. Not enough flexibilty or areas to be very creative, that's for sure.
