Alright, think this could potentially be interesting. Are you employed or unemployed? What job do you have? If not, why not?

I myself am employed. It might not be the greatest job as I work in retail, damn clothes shops. But I earn money and that's the aim of the game, right?

I also am in a band, we gig about 5 times a month so that's time consuming too but wouldn't have it any other way!

LET THE POLL COMENCE!

I wash dishes at a local restaurant, also I sometimes sell albums, and sell/lease music to people who want to use it in like, videogames, or an animation which supplements my income. Sometimes I get paid to practically just stand there, some days dishes are coming faster than I can clean them and I have to stay late.

Actually I've made more making music, but the dishwashing is by far steadier pay.

That's pretty cool! Be brilliant if you could make enough off your music though to get by!

4th year at Uni, will be done in May. Work in a shop. Doesn't pay particularly well, but it's easy and a 10 minute walk from my house. Probably leaving in summer tho.

all part-time

1. retail, but on the way to being fired (my company doesn't actually fire people directly unless they're caught stealing or something, they just reduce the number of shifts you're given until they can say you haven't worked the minimum number of shifts) but I'm quitting before they actually tell me I'm fired.

2. club promoter, it's pretty fun albeit slightly stressful and promoters have negative stereotypes with people who don't like to party so that kinda sucks. but all in all absolutely wouldn't trade for anything because everyone who is with me ALWAYS has a great night due to my actions and that makes me happy. Also lots of money + free stuff.

3. supply teacher for 1st grade. it's really tiring but also lots of fun even though I don't get paid a lot.


edit: lots of ad hoc stuff too. I made 500 almond cookies for a catering company last week. next week I am moving stuff from a natural history museum into storage because they're building a new museum.

I'm not employed.
Why, do you ask?
Well I am 17 and even though I don't like school I couldn't probably find a proper job without finishing high school and maybe even graduating.

Good thing unis aren't private here.

I work for the largest steel manufacturer in North America as a Rebar Detailer. Basically, I make the CAD drawings for the iron workers to follow when they put the reinforcing bars into the concrete. It involves a decent amount of math and a lot of stuff to remember, but all in all not too bad.

No job right now, but I'm in school

I would like to get a job in an Emergency Room though since it would be good experience for my field of study.

I'm going now to get a Bachelors in Nursing, but will most likely keep taking classes after that while working to get licensed as a Nurse Practitioner.. I would like to work in an Emergency Room in Philadelphia eventually though.

Ooh that's awesome. I have a friend in Emergency and it's really tough but so rewarding.

I want to study physiotherapy and/or rehabilitation therapy after I graduate so at the very least I want to resume volunteering at my uni's hospital once a week (I used to when I was in high school). But I'm gonna see if I can get a referral from my GP or my mom's oncologist (who works at the same hospital) to work with a specific person too.

My step mum is a licensed NP and she works in a clinic as well as teaching through a private college. It seems like a ton of work, though that might be because she used to work like 4 or 5 jobs at the same time.

Any particular reason you want to pursue that path and not a different one in the medical field?

that's pretty cool. Rehabilitation is something that really interests me. Still might go down that route, but for now I'm just working on the basic nursing degree. That's pretty sweet you can get some experience at your uni's hospital though. Wish mine had something like that. Would most likely be a bit easier to get a job or even a volunteering gig.

Yea, three of my aunts do it. One works a ton and the other two it's just normal work hours. The former though is the head of the entire maternity ward though so it makes sense. It's just been something that's always interested me and a lot of family is in the field. I was thinking about the whole medical school for a while but it's just way too much school and money. But the field interests me, there are always jobs available for nurses and they make good money so it seems like something good to pursue. Nothing is set in stone yet though, so I could diverge down another path as I move forward.
