    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!

    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 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!!!!

    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!

    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.

    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.
