    Help! Does Anyone Love Their Job!?

    Advertisements
    I just graduated from a great university in May, and still have yet to find a job or to really figure out what I want to do!! I graduated with a bachelors degree in Communications. Does anyone love their job and want to share a little bit about it?? !!

    Hi! I love my job that I have right now and the one I do during the school year.
    Right now: I'm a research intern at University of California San Diego. I'm working with physicians to create an internet-based informed consent form for cancer patients who want to donate their tumors to research. I'm also helping make a secure data-distribution server for public health officials who want to track disease outbreaks using data from clinic and hospital records.

    During the school year: I mentor undergrads who are disadvantaged or athletes or under academic watch. I work with them to develop study habits, keep track of their grades, communicate effectively with professors, etc. It's great to see how they grow over one semester, and for some of them, they are getting As or Bs for the first time ever.

    I love my job... I'm a math/stats professor.

    I have several friends with undergrad degrees in COMM. One is a college-level admissions coordinator at my university; another has a similar job for a med school and will transition to alumni relations there; another does PR for a hospital; another has his own digital production service (does everything from wedding photos to tv commercials); and the others are working on Masters degrees.

    I'm an ultrasound tech, and I absolutely love what I do. But of course, that's more schooling for you

    I majored in communications too.

    Then I ended up in catering and event planning. I LOVED my job. It got really stressful at times and I had to work with some jerks, but it was amazing to see the final parties and weddings.

    I had to quit when DH and I got married, but I'm about to go back to school and get recertified.
    Where are we going and why are we in a handbasket?

    I love my job. I am an intake and assessments social worker for the department for children and families in Vermont. I was a CPS specialist for child protective services in Arizona for the past two years.

    The job is beyond rewarding but most people hate me. I love the kids that I work with. I really enjoyed the relationships I was able to have with kids in Arizona, these days I am doing more of triage than any relationship building. It is a very rewarding job even with all of the frustrations.
