I thought it'd be interesting to find out what everyone does for a living.

I'm an adoptions case manager. I prepare all the paperwork to get adoptions finalized. I'll also be helping to match children with prospective families. I work for the local child protection agency, so the children I place have been abused/neglected. I just started the job, and I'm very excited about it!

I'll be the first one to take your poll..I am not currently working, due to recovering from a broken neck received in a car accident in November 2004....but my usual occupation is as an Inventory Control Manager...(must love to count, and do math for this job)...


Since I've been off, I'm seriously thinking about returning to school for something in the medical field. The areas that attract me most in order of preference: Ultrasonography, phlebotomy, and nursing...Hopefully I will have made my mind up before summer, as I'd like to start school in the fall.

I'm working as a secretary in Helsinki University Hospital's ER, so if you ever get sick while visiting Helsinki, you'll end up to my workplace.

I work at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA. I really like the creative working environment. I am also involved with a lot of the research that goes on throughout the Institute and JPL and find it very interesting. It was a big change from 20 years as a legal secretary. I went from a non-creative, controled environment to a very casual and unstructured, creative one. Too bad they don't teach home ec! :)

I am an IT manager at a major corporation located in Northwest Arkansas. I bet you're all thinking it's Wal-Mart, but it's not!

I was a lawyer specializing in pharmaceutical law. Then I met my husband and moved to US where to practice law (since it is so different than the legal system in Europe) Iwould have to go to law school again. I don't know if I am eager to do that... My husband travels a lot and if I work as a lawyer we might as well never see each other.
My dream is actually to be a custom clothier, one day, and possible teach sewing/tailoring. So far, I am the one who is being taught.

Gigi, since I have recently developed interest in embroidery , it is my impression that there is a dire need for good books, manuals, etc. on emroidery and especially on using the embr. software.

I'm retired now and have been for three years. Prior to that I was a System Engineer in the Computer Programming field for one of the largest computer centers. I also trained computer programmers.

I really like the job - but - things were moving so fast and, for me, it was harder and harder to keep up with it. I felt that now was the time to retire and leave this ever changing field to the young.

When I was workinig (I've been off since February because of serious illness) I was a pharmacist in a community pharmacy. Can't say I miss it much since in the past 2 years or so, drug diversion, prescription forgeries and, worst of all, armed robberies of narcotics have skyrocketed. I haven't felt safe at work in a long time.
