I’ve never worked in the private sector, but I enjoy working in the public sector. I currently work for one of the best federal agencies and it is an easy job. Contrary to popular belief, you do get paid well in the public sector. Of course you won’t have a mansion on a hill or drive a Bentley if you work in the public sector, but you’ll live comfortably if you’re smart with money. Basically, right now, I get paid pretty decently for doing easy work all day while not having to worry about being laid off.
I am a psychologist. There are new challenges everyday with my job and I enjoy it a lot. I love to be able to answer someone’s questions and help them out if needed. It really feels good to know that I am contributing to solving someone’s problems. I am usually good at giving advice and people around where I live ask me for help. I would like to make a difference in the world even if I have only influenced one person. That would certainly make a domino effect and the whole world might change at least one thing for the better.
I am also lucky enough to have achieved my ideal job. My husband and I are computer consultants from home together. I do graphics and he is a programmer. Together we can make just about anything and be home with our kids. A separate phone line lets us know if the calls are personal or business. The best thing is that I work whenever I want to. The night time is when I’m most alert and can think well; thus I can produce lots of quality work. I am never late to work and I never have to worry about the drive home from the office.
I currently work in a bookshop. Generally there are more intelligent customers, book discounts and even if you already know much about books, you’ll learn even more. My ideal job is to be a writer and my bookshop experience is invaluable. I mean I learn firsthand how the retail part of the book business works. I have almost finished writing my first non-fiction book and hope to have it published at the beginning of next year. After that, I plan to write another, and another, and another. Hopefully, I’ll become a well-known author and leave my life of a shop-assistant behind.
I work as a bartender to earn my living. I absolutely love my job, especially making drinks, which is almost like an art. I enjoy being around people and talking to them. On the downside, a lot of people think that because they are going out and paying for their dinner, they can treat their server without respect. I know it seems like an age-old complaint but what it really boils down to is common human decency. People like me work hard for their money and have a lot going on at any given time. I wish my clients were more considerate.
My ideal profession was Executive Director for a community service organization that provided home support workers to the elderly, the disabled and those recuperating from the hospital. I ran the office, supervised 30 home support workers, and coordinated 30 Meals on Wheels volunteers. I was always doing different things throughout the day. My day at work simply flew by and I couldn’t believe it was already time to go home. I could go on and on about this job. I am now not working as I am disabled myself but the memories I have from those days sustain me.
