    Some days I like it, other days not so much
    It's changed since I first became a nurse. It's a much harder job now. Too many litigious know-it-all ingrates.

    3. I enjoy it, I have to be creative, I put my degree to use and it's something new everyday, but it's still just a job 8/10
    4. Ultimate goal is to be able to stay home with my little girl (and any other kiddos that come along) - a lot of my motivation for this whole journey is to get my PT certificate.

    5... Love what I do, hate where I work.
    Administration sucks- I'd love to see them work the floor, and THEN try to tell us what we're doing wrong. I sometimes wonder if the stress is really worth it. :noway:

    2. How long have you been doin' it? - 10 years (current job 2 years)

    I love my job. Something different comes up almost daily so its not the same thing over and over though the reporting I do is. I help fix user problems from the simple (my mouse isnt working) to medium (why cant i log into the cognos site) to the hard (im a domain admin and cant install updates on the server, wtf?!?!?!?!)

    my biggest complaint is procedures. personal life im not about following guidelines, but when at work i adhere to them as much as i can and people get testy when i ask them to be sure to submit a ticket. I am not the only one in my dept so the other guy can answer your question to. there is no need to email me directly, call me and stop me in a hallway with your question about what font do i think you should use.

    My last job i was the only IT guy for a small staffing firm and i despised the people i worked for. you want to talk about shady scummy people who had no morals and it would be them. i left there to take less money to be here and it was probably the best decision of my life.

    That decision also helped me with my weight loss as i am no where near as stressed/depressed cause of work.

    1. Investments (Registered Client Associate)
    2. 8
    3. 4 - I kind of rock at my job, but am ready for the next step and too scared to take it
    4. I LOVE my clients. My financial advisors is really another story, they are not always the nicest, easiest people to deal with and might be able to sell an empty shoe box but really suck at the normal day to day office things. I'm really just ready to move on....

    That's the question of the year. I was like you just out of college, worked as a GD part-time for 6 years before I had kids. Hated, hated, hated it. People have no clue what it takes for a graphic designer to figure out what the client 'sees' in their mind.

    I set out to get fit in hopes that maybe I can do something in the fitness industry. I work really well with people, and am told that I am great as a motivator, so fingers crossed.
