    I'm an electrical engineer. Right now I do electrical building design using software. I lay out lights, receptacles, motors, anything in any building that uses electricity.

    I used to want to be a vet too... small animal, but still a lot of school and money! And I never liked school and have no money. Lol Then I discovered that I am way to emotional and don't like blood... so I wouldn't last long as a vet or vet tech. I'd never sleep. XD

    So I decided that I'd do something a little small scale compared to that. I also have a love for dogs, so I decided that I would like to try out dog grooming and dog training. :) One day it would be great to have my own little business in town... have training sessions and clinics there... that's my dream right now. Not a whole lot of schooling or money involved compared to being a vet... less emotional too. XD

    Student in social field.

    Suitable to you if you like to work with people and specifially have will to help people that are coming from not so great conditions because in many cases you work with people like that in social field, even of course there's also other work to do.

    You need at least to be patient (even your purpose is to help, miracles won't happen an overnight) and get along with people. I say it'd be good to have also some kind of small calling for that; I really hope that people who don't understand people nor want to work with them don't end up to choose a social career: the clients, often coming from poor conditions like I mentioned, deserve a worker who's genuinely interested in them and their issues.

    Im a customer assistant on a clothing department. It's a job where I don't get a chance to sit down, which is good as I like to be rushing about. I sort Clothing deliveries I merchandise the clothing, and I help customers. I decided against college as I wantedto earn money rather than owe it.

    I kinda feel the same way... my parents and sisters don't though... they drive me crazy telling me I have to go away to college... sorry, don't want to be in debt for the rest of my life! My sister owes like $40,000 already.

    I clean grease monkey office buildings. Glamorouss isn't it? =.=" but i'm in highschool so I guess it's not the end of the world. I'm currently "working" towards being a barn manager and/or owner. Mind you, almost any job in the equine world I would be happy with.

    Please, please come smack some of your logic into my bf's little sister! She is making a joke of social work. She is only first year for a 2 year degree, so hopefully she changes her mind on her career path. Anyone who mocks homeless or goes on vacations to places like Cuba and then bitches that as soon as she is off the resort there isn't proper toilets and the people are absolutely disgusting for it does not have the necessary compassion and maturity to be in that field of work.
    My best friend is working towards a bachelor's degree in sociology and social work. Her family is from a poverty stricken country and she is actually serious about being able to do everything she can to help with immigration and struggling families in a strange country to them. I give her, and others who are in it for the right reason, huge applaud.

    Myself, I'm working towards a business bachelor's degree in human resources and labor relations.
    My goal is to be the one dealing with the training of employees and the one dealing with benefits/compensation/pay roll, that sort of thing. I'm really good at being a mediator, but not so much as the person doing all the firing.

    ^^I'm sorry your bf's little sister is like that. Is she serious when mocking disadvantaged people? I admit also I can throw a joke about people every now and then (never when there are clients around tho), but it's pretty rare and not serious. I know I've also some suspicions toward some people or some thoughts that aren't that good, but I'm not going to work in fields about which I've those thoughts.

    Like I said, respect of humanity and positive attitude toward your clients should be requisites in that work.
