i'm a journalist at an international business trade magazine. on any given day i am in touch with dozens of CEOs, presidents, CMOs etc of large companies in the industry i cover. sounds important but sometimes they can really be a pain in my butt haha. i also manage all our databases (currently access but moving to SQL later this year) that our magazine uses to run data driven rankings, special reports, and data analytics for the industry. its a great job and i am the youngest editor at my publication.

i do have one really pesky coworker that i cannot stand who thinks she's my boss when our boss is not around, and i totally put her in her place today which felt so great!

    I'm a PA (Physician Assistant) in neurosurgery. I split my time between clinic and surgery. We do more spine than brain surgery (My doc says the brain stuff takes too long! He likes to get in and out and home to his wife and new baby.).

      i'm still the same "thing" from the last - event planner - but now do it on a whole different level. No more planning corporate meetings and trainings. Now I get to plan all of the decor, activities, entertainment, etc for the people that plan the technical parts pretty sweet transition if i may say so myself

          Drea - you're so loving and caring I think you'd make a wonderful nurse! Of course i think you are probably making a wonderful teacher too!

            Reading some of everyone's jobs makes me feel like I'm reading my resume, much of our careers have a lot in common. it's cool.

Plus, I worked with a ton of vendors in your area and can recommend a company who will give phenomenal support after the install is done. :)
              Thanks Maria...I wish you worked here :o(

                    Thanks for the love! I used to work in retail for 9 years (4.5 as part-time and 4.5 as mgmt) and that life was so unfullfilling. So, being a teacher is so much more rewarding. The school in which I teach has parents who don't value education and lack financial stability. I truly believe that most of our students come to school because it is the only place that they get genuine love from the teachers. Our staff is amazing! The pay isn't all that great, but I am definitely rewarded when I see my students learning!
