Have you heard that in your lifetime, you will switch careers at least 3 times? I don’t remember where or even when I heard that – but for me, that rings true.
I feel like I have done many things in my life – most of them boring. But I wanted to talk about the different jobs I’ve had, and my dream job(s).
When I was in college, I was a nanny to 3 kids under 4. Not to mention, I had my own kiddo to take care of. So 4 kids under 4. It was…. an experience. I would never do it again, so I have high respect for any childcare worker and teachers.
This is what I was going to college for. I loved working in the medical field. My first job after college was for an internal medicine physician. It was such a small practice it became pretty boring. After about 4 months, I left and started at a pediatric urgent care center, which was MY pace. I loved walking in not knowing what would walk through the front door, seeing 100+ patients a day. Eventually though, I went over and worked with a pediatrician and developed a strong relationship with her and my own patients.
During that time, I moved up and was the head inventory specialist and then Team Lead. Of course, this all happened 6 months before Kyle enlisted and we moved to Texas!
I not only consider this a job, but a life style.
After Kyle deployed, I became active in our FRG (Family Readiness Group) and handled a lot of different tasks and was in charge of a lot of activities. It kept me busy everyday, helped other families and kept my mind off what was going on overseas. I miss it more than I feel I should.
Stay At Home Mom
This USE to be my dream job. I love being home with my kids, don’t get me wrong, but when they are at school all day? I.WAS.SO.BORED. You can only clean your house so many times before you are bagging your head against a wall. I, personally, am just not cut out to be a stay at home mom.
Due to my remarks above, I went and got a part-time job working in a children’s clothing store. Again, it was an experience but I am NOT cut out for customer service! lol
Hello, corporate america. This is my current job. I work for a broker agency that deals in insurance sales. I had ZERO experience when I started but I have since taken over the department. It’s hard work; dealing with Department of Insurance, Center for Medicaid and Medicare service, large insurance carriers and individual brokers. Although there are times when I want to do something else, I love my job overall.
My dream job(s)
I want to WORK from home full-time. I could technically do my job at home, which I do a once a week, but I think I would be happy working in the publishing industry or just blogging/writing. I wish I had a door or two I could open to get me there – but for now, I am content with what I do now.
On another note, I would love to be a PA or midwife. This was my goal when I started in the medical field – but due to the moves and other LIFE things, it just didn’t work out! 🙁
What is your dream job?
