We watch a ton of hgtv. I have it on right now. My nephew likes all the bright colors. House Hunters Intl is one of my faves.
Thanks, Carrie! HHI is a fun show to work on because you get to learn so much about other countries.

My job has changed since the last time we had this thread. I am now a "Clinical Research Coordinator" for Stroke Research at HUP. It's very interesting and I like it so far (only been there a few months). Previously, I was a manager at a diagnostic imaging facility for more than 5 years.

I had to link in these threads, just because I knew I had seen this before! I haven't read the other posts yet, so maybe someone has already done this! This is what I had posted (too lazy to type it again! lol)



(I really like this one, just because you really get to see the details of what people do, and the good/bad about it)






Job Title & Industry: "Senior Consultant" - It's so generic but it's what is on my business card, but I guess "Computer/Business Software Consultant" is a little better.


Describe what you do in a few short sentences:

When companies need help implementing, upgrading, merging, customizing, training, etc. ... or anything, their software (I work with PeopleSoft right now) I go in and help.


What are the bests parts of your job?

- the pay; it's good money

- the flexibility; i'm very independant

- hourly pay; if i work, i get paid

- networking; i meet people all over the world

- i like problem solving, and i do a lot of that

- frequent flyer and hotel points!

- my "standard" schedule is M-Th, i do my 40 hours in 4 days, then have Fridays off


What are the worst part?

- Consultants don't often get a lot of respect or thanks; people look at us like we're there to take their jobs, or tell them what to do

- risk; if i am not working, i don't get paid - i've known people to now be able to find work for 6+ months - that means no paycheck!

- travel; for 10+ years (except for the last few months!) i've worked out of state - i see a lot of airports and hotel rooms

- lack of personal time; i often have to work crazy hours


Do you think you are compensated appropriately?

Yes - we get paid well mainly because of the travel and sacrifices we make and hours we work


How much vacation time/time off do you get?

no set amount - i can work as much or as little as i want; but if i don't work i don't get paid. like i am probably taking the rest of Sept off - maybe more, depending on the next project that comes along - but no paychecks!


If you could do it all over again would you pick the same field/career?

Probably. I complain a lot - but overall I like it and I get paid well.


Are you limited to a particular region of the country or world?

Nope, I am all over the place.


What is your dream job (if all barriers were removed)?

I wish I knew this answer!

It's funny that you said this isn't interesting. As soon I read the first few words I was really interested :)

I'd like to do something like environmental toxicology after grad school.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
