Career/Job (Past, Present and Future)
Posted 1/24/07
What do you plan on doing for the rest of your life ? Many people say that they haven't decided yet . that they will take their time and find out what they like .

But let me warn you, you don't have as much time as you think, 20 years can go by in the blink of an eye . Do you want to look back and see that you just coasted through life , barley getting by ?

I have seen many people go back to school in their late 30`s and 40`s , but by then its too late , you will be working until you cant work any more , and either die or starve , don't count on social security to get you by , cause it wont be there in a few years .

but anyway, i didn't mean to start a rant , lol

What is your chosen profession , or what do you plan on going into?

Myself , I want to be a network consultant . So I`m going to school for networking .

Just recently , I got in as a Temporary full time employee at ford , working as a sealer in the paint department . This is not something I even have the option of doing for the rest of my life , seeing as i will be laid off in September , but the money is quite good while going to school. At $20.57 an hour , I cant wait till my first paycheck.

Yea, I'm a coaster (people rest their drinks on me). Give me some motivation...

I don't have a chosen profession, and I avoid plans like the plague. The second part is only half true.

Well, GL gev. I wonder how they figured out the 57?

hmm this topic sounds familiar....I'll check later if this one is a duplicate.
I want to be an Optometrist (eye doctor) and specialize in pediatric optometry. It's a loong road (about 10 years more studying ) but is what I love so it's worth it.
Right now I work at the ESL lab on my campus, but Im' planning to work as Spanish/English translator for Immigration cases, it's well paid and people always need one here in South Florida. Just need a few more months of training, pass some test (Already seen it, not that difficult) and I'm good to go.

Sounds mysteriously like the future plans thread, but more specific...Currently involved with a human mess called property management. Hopefully within the next month or so I will be a full fledged licensed Realtor and begin selling all of the properties that my father has bought in the last two years. Which should be a neat trick since we have three on the market, and two more about to go up! I refuse however to sell my soul and start wearing pant suits with trendy glasses and/or skirt suits to complete my Realtor look.

Yeah, I know, I've seen middle-agers going back to university because they don't like their current jobs. ><
I also know of a person who's so into her field of interest that she spent 12 years in university.
I think I'd want to get into education/IT/physics/medicine/journalism. Not decided yet.

I work for Proactiv Solutions right now. (yes the annoying ance medication commercials you've probably all seen a million times) I manage a kiosk in my local mall. Right now I'm trying to get into managing a Lord and Taylor (Typical Dept. Store, think macy's or jcpenneys)

Eventually I want to go to school to get my Massage Therapy License and then Accupuncture. After that maybe continue school to become a Registered Nurse.

I want to be a pharmacist. xD Not only do they make good money, but I also love the career. I'm training to be a Pharmacist Technician right now. (: It's a great achievement since I'm only 17 right now. XD

I am an IT Staff by profession for 2 years now; I am facilitating on student’s online exam and quizzes, and assisting faculties on modular classes. I really can’t tell what my status would be in the next 5 years. But I really wanted to take up Business Management and Entrepreneurship (it’s so happen that I can’t manipulate the time and can’t find a way out to go to school on weekends); most probably, I’ll talk to my boss in 2-3 weeks and I’ll enroll Masters in Business Administration next semester; after then – will be the right time to tell what it’s gonna be in the future.

So far, I’m happy with my job (though I only have a small portion of my time to relax and enjoy CR; crazy!). We’re also breeding dogs – Pitbull and toy dogs (currently proposing to a friend to venture with me – Pet Shop). I’m actually planning to work abroad (Kuwait or Japan) or maybe ask assistance from a relative in Florida to earn much higher; well, I haven’t decided yet.

~ Oh well, I don’t sell whatever I have written, take it or leave it.
