    What do you do for a living?

    I've had a house cleaning business for 5 years now. I work part-time after cutting back significantly due to some health problems.

    If you have a college degree, does it pertain to your current job, if not, what was your major in college?

    No

    Do you like your job?

    I love working for myself, being by myself and scheduling my own hours. And making as much as some of my degreed friends.


    How about you?

    That twinge in your intestines
    1. I'm a computer programmer, but please don't tell my mother. She thinks I'm a piano player in a whorehouse.
    2. No degree. All self-inflicted knowledge.
    3. My job, I'm indifferent to it. I like some of the people I work with, and that makes work palatable. I am especially fond of being able to travel and keep buying guitars and expensive cooking implements, so I can truthfully say I'm only in it for the money when it comes right down to it. It's fun to be thought a wizard, too. It amuses the hell out of me at times.

    I am a Civil Engineer.

    I have a degree, although it took a little longer than normal. I did graduate from college with a job in my field and a ton of experience, so the transition was much easier.

    I love my job, it's not perfect but I love and get along well with the people I work with. Most of us attended the same school at the same time and are very close which at times gets to be a problem because we are progressing at the same pace. It just forces me to strive harder for perfection. As far as the work it's second nature to me. I feel like I am getting paid to do a hobby.

    Currently unemployed. Quit my last job because it was a dead-end job and took up all my time. Currently looking for another job in the IT field.

    I have a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.

    And the last one doesn't apply anymore or yet.

    Full time ungrateful bitch of a rich person. It seems that way, at least.

    My occupation is trying to find a job in Michigan. I'm on leave for crazy stupid depression (actually more laziness, fear of the world and pot smoking that led to it) this semester, but I'm trying to finish my damn Ivy League edutainment (it ain't Harvard Yale or Princeton) so I can pretend I'm hot shit and make people impressed with me. Ironic that everyone there is just impressed with my guitar playing. Oh the rockstar dream...it dies hard.

    That's the bottom line, because Cold Stone says so.

    I'm the executive director of a non-profit organization.

    Sure my degree is useful sometimes - BA Psych.

    Yep, it's a great job with great people, though it is extremely demanding.

    What do you do for a living?

    I work for a non profit organization and until just recently I was over marketing. It was my job to make sure the community utilized our services. That changed recently and now I will be focusing on administrative tasks and fundraising efforts.

    If you have a college degree, does it pertain to your current job, if not, what was your major in college?

    My education is in law

    Do you like your job?

    Most days I love it, recently and especially today I have wondered if it is time to move on.
