    I think that for this board, the poll is lacking a very important choice- Equine related. LOL!

    tee hee - I voted Executive, etc. but in the interests of full disclosure I have to admit we are owners of a small business but it is more of a cottage industry working from home. Thirty five years we have run a pond nursery, raised our family and never 'went' to work. No commute. Now planning retirement.

    When I was working I was an Assistant Financial Aid Officer in the graduate business school at a major university. Loved it!

    Right now, I'm a line cook for a small, what passes for fine-dining around here restaurant. My degrees are in archeology and anthropology and museum studies, but there's nothing like NFPs for job insecurity.

    Well, my degree says Juris Doctor, so I ticked the last box. I'm a lawyer. The majority of my practice is in family court - divorces, child custody, adoptions, etc.

    That's exactly how I feel about what I do! Well said! And I wish I'd known about you when my sister died two years ago. It took me a long time to find a good path forward after that. You do important work.

    It's funny, I'm not sure what my title really is because we are going through some changes in org structure at my company. I work at a financial firm, with a large IT department and we develop almost all the software applications our financial advisors use. My job is to spend as much time as possible talking to individual users to plan our development strategy, figure out what needs to be added, enhanced, etc. in the software applications. I also like public speaking, so I get drafted into teaching classes on our applications or giving updates on our multi-year technology strategy. So it's kind of like saleswoman, trainer and IT nerd all rolled into one. It reads kind of dull, I think, but it's actually interesting, as it's fast-paced and every day brings new challenges.

    I'm a web content and development coordinator for a multi-channel retailer. I do small-scale website publishing and perform a lot of project management type tasks with getting new web content published to the site. I also participate on web development projects which enhance our web features to make a better shopping experience for our customer. I really like the web development portion of my job and hope to soon move into an analyst position focused on on-site search and web development projects.
