I'm in recruitment. Specifically temp and contract work in the industrial sector. It can be fun and rewarding, but also incredibly frustrating :/

I currently own a dance school (and am a dance teacher). It's a wonderful job but sometimes it gets very stressful. I used to be a primary school teacher which I liked, but can't see myself going back to the classroom just yet.

i work in marketing and have ever since I finished uni and I HATE it! I want to be an interior decorator, about to start my studies in it. It's my absolute passion and should have gone after that dream after I left high school, but with pressure to go to uni, it was marketing instead!

I worked in the TV industry. I found it cut throat and very competitive. I absolutely loved it though. So much fun.
I couldn't really go any further unless I committed to a huge move and didn't have another baby. So I quit (and went on to have lots of babies!)
I'm now at uni working toward becoming a family support/welfare/social worker type role and I can't wait!

I'm a nurse/midwife. Absolutely love my job. I move around all the different areas of the hospital so don't get bored or bogged down too much. Doesn't matter how many times you see a baby born, each birth is special in its own way. I also love shifts where I'm working in the special care nursery. I have 4 babies to myself and occasionally get to sneak some cuddles in while bottle feeding/burping some of the babies. I've looked after a few sets of triplets and it's kinda cool to cuddle 3 babies at once 😃
I also loved my patients when I was nursing full time. Many of them were long term patients so you got to know them and their families. Was an amazing feeling to know that what you did made a huge impact on someone's life - there is much more to it than giving drugs and checking someone's BP etc.

I'm just waitressing at the moment...definitely not something I want to spend the rest of my life doing! Really crappy pay, no breaks...no, definitely won't be doing this forever. But I don't mind it, the cafe/restaurant I work in is really pretty, and I am good at what I do. It's a job, it gives me something to do outside of parenting, and provides a bit of extra cash to help make ends meet.
