I am a Biochemist and have spent the last 5 years working in medical research. Currently I am completing my MBA (masters degree in business) and hope to eventually find work in the biotechnology industry in marketing/sales.

I also train horses on the side, mainly starting youngsters and retraining racehorses off the track for English disciplines - dressage, hunter jumping etc.

Great question though, I have always wondered how everyone else does it, we all have to support our equine love somehow!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I spent the first part of my working career managing auto dealerships. When I burned out from that, I started a mortgage company ~20 years ago. Right now, I'm about to start as the regional director for a mortgage lender based in PA.

As a side thing, I take in a horse of two for training every once in a while.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I'm a special education teacher in a self-contained center for severe and profound children.

It is the best job ever. I love my work, everyday is different. And an added bonus - No School in the SUMMER!!!!

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of board, and he'll listen to me any day.

Full time rancher and boarding facility operator.

My wife and I run the two ranches and work with babies to rehabs and buckers to bolters.

There is always a tractor to fix or hay to be moved and lots of pens to clean.
We have two sawmills and a bunch of heavy equipment that keep us busy too.

I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I wasn't working...Ha!

Wow, I think everyone has such interesting jobs! And some I think I'd kill for. o_O Haha.

I'm a software engineer - I work for a small company that does smart-card attendance systems for K-12 schools, point of sale for school cafeterias, and loan-servicing for colleges and universities.

Well I'm a sophomore in highschool, so no job for me yet. I'm trying to get a summer job at the little convenient store down the road from me. :)

I am a Registered Nurse :) I get to take blood, give pills, looks at "things", and be around people all day. I highly recommend it. The only free things I get are my own medical advice and the occassional illness that patients try to pass on to me.

Yummy! That'd be a delicious job .

I'm unemployed at the moment. Since I've spent the greatest part of my so-far life in all kind of schools I haven't worked a lot yet. I've still had some periodic employments or work placements in my past, mainly in customer service.

I hope I'll work in some social-oriented position (especially multicultural work/child welfare/work with alcohol or drug abusers/work with people with mental challenges) would be very desirable some day.

I'm processing so I'll get a proper education for that so I can make my dream come true.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Sounds like a dream... I've wanted to do something like that since I was a little kid... You're lucky, Marecare. It's probably a lot harder than I picture it, but still. Much envy.
