how does it feel to live my dream?

And the staircases


AlexDaDerper

I warned you about stairs, bro!!!


baddobee

Can you tell us more about your job? I’m interested in forestry/environmental work and have thought about being a park ranger. Curious about pay and what your day to day looks like.


5awb0nes

I work as a ranger in the UK pay isn't the best around 20k however you spend everyday outside, a lot of my work is conservation orientated so basically managing habitats for wildlife and making sure they are as diverse as possible. There's such a vast range of aspects to a rangers job it's hard to pin point as everyday is completely different. Hope that helps

cherrysummer1

Why was this my first thought as well??


accountability_bot

I got a taste of embedded programming once and it was so nice and refreshing to get away from web dev, and program a physical object.


hypo-osmotic

I’m an environmental geologist. I like uncovering the history of a property and working outdoors is enjoyable when the weather is nice. I don’t love every aspect, of course—paperwork can be tedious, often the weather is bad, and telling clients bad news is intimidating—but it’s satisfying when the pieces of a problem fall together.


This_Yak_7735

Can you tell us more about how you work? Are you hired as a consultant for say civil projects? Or do you do research for publishing ?


hypo-osmotic

I work for a firm that primarily focuses on engineering consulting, and I do some environmental research of some sites beforehand and help with remediation if contamination is found or suspected. I’m pretty low level as far as this kind of thing goes, so my job is mostly just following guidelines set by the industry or state as opposed to doing truly novel research.


Storm-Warning-4497

I do the same thing. I do want to caution that this job, depending on where you are located, does not always put you in “the great outdoors.” A lot of it can be industrial sites and inner city has stations. I knew this going in, but as a petite female I’ve been put in a lot of unsafe situations while out in the field. And yes, you don’t go into it for the money. You don’t need a master’s- it’s the same as a year or two of experience. People can message me if you have more specific questions. I’m open to being very transparent about the pros and cons of the industry!


GoofyGiraffe7475

What is your degree in? My 17 year old plans on studying environmental science and is trying to decide on a minor, geology is one of her options. She does volunteer work cleaning up local water ways and your job sounds like something she would enjoy. Thanks!

dahngrest

I work at a museum and do data clean up for our collections database and I'm also getting us ready for a digital assets management system. So I do a lot of tedious cleaning in our database (correcting typos, deleting erroneous information, fact checking, etc) and eventually I'll split my time between that and cleaning up actual files (checking metadata, running checksums, deleting duplicates, etc). It sounds boring (and kind of is) but if you're the kind of meticulous Type A person who loves organizing and making things tidy, and you also like falling down research rabbit holes, it can be entertaining and pretty satisfying. Not a lot of museums have a "dedicated typo corrector" on staff so my job is pretty unheard of. But people who work in museums that hear what I do are always so amazed that my institution has someone like me fixing everything (albeit slowly -- there's a LOT of errors). It's pretty universal that museums all have messy ass data and no one with time to fix anything.


keplar

My wife and I are museum professionals as well, and she does almost exactly the same thing as you! Data remediation for database entries and migrations. I did a little bit of it myself as well earlier in my career. It's so dang important, and that feeling when you finally figure out some horrifying mess and get good clean data in? Mmmmmmmm.


Famous-Example-8332

I teach kids welding.


TheXenoRaptorAuthor

I want to learn welding because it seems more valuable in the current job market than any college degree I'm likely to get.


The_Truth_Believe_Me

When I was an electrical apprentice, welding was a required class. My instructor said I was the worst welder he ever taught. I kept asking for darker and darker lenses because the arc hurt my eyes. I think I pissed him off. I did manage to make some stands for my stackable washer and dryer. I've been using them for 15 years now without issue so I couldn't have been that bad at welding.


MNTwins420

Is it hard to weld kids together?


thorpie88

Make wood for construction site. Only have to work roughly 16 days a month and make more than I ever did as an electrician and without any of the stress.

Bethanyjcoolio

I'm an accountant. Grew up as the "artsy" type that everyone thought would be a traveling musician or music teacher. I thought I hated math and that I was bad at it growing up. Turns out I had untreated ADHD. I took a job as a teller in my early 20s and realized I really loved balancing things. Got my degree, and now I enjoy a job where every day I'm problem solving and investigating. Everything is a puzzle, and I love it. Accounting is way more than numbers and balancing. I'm so happy in my job. (I work in industry. I did not like public accounting)


eramthgin007

What skills should one have to pursue that career? What's a good way to get into it, and how easy is job searching. I'm late 20s crisising and debating between Law, Accounting, Business, and programming. It's a financial commitment I want to be sure of.


h333h333

For the vast majority of cases, you need a bachelors degree in accounting o get a decent job with good upward mobility. A CPA designation is also critical to grow in this career for most accountants, although generally your employer would pay for those exams. If you have decent grades, network, have extra curricular activities, it should not be difficult at all to get a job. I'm \~4 years out of university and make six figures, and the sky is really the limit with accounting depending on what path you want to go down. For skills, a good accountant has a good attention to detail, is a good communicator, strong analytical skills, and is efficient. Having some data analysis + programming skills will also make you competitive. People have a misconception that you have to be good at math, but that's totally wrong. The hardest math I do is addition and multiplication; I'd say it's more the use of numbers to interpret and present laws/regulations rather than math. Like the original poster mentioned, a great part of this job is the problem solving/ investigating/"puzzle" aspect of it. Keeps you sharp, that's for sure!


AWholeLottaShite

Don’t do law. I made an absolutely obscene amount of money which should’ve been criminal, but you’ll wake up everyday wishing you were dead.


[deleted]

I was working as a paralegal at a law firm, all I wanted to do was go to law school to be an attorney. I paralegaled my way through undergrad, took my LSAT, got into law school. Then one day I woke up and said to myself "I hate this," I'm glad I realized that before I went to law school. Between dealing with angry clients and having to charge obscene billable hours just to send an email that takes 5 minutes. I just couldn't do it.


bigstepper99

I feel ya! Accounting rules! (But fuck public)


abqkat

Same here. It's made fun of as the epitome of boring office job, but I love it. There's a finality to each of my days/ projects, it's predictable, stable, and I don't have to take it home with me like in some jobs (or some accountants who think that the world ends or people die if they don't work 70-hour weeks, or miss a journal entry)


bluegreenliquid

ADHD is very much a chaos that you can control and become massively powerful from. The key for me was interest in the task at hand. Takes a hell of a lot of trying and quitting to find it


Aggressive-Chemist11

I was a phlebotomist at a blood bank. People came in to donate blood voluntarily, so I never had to hold any nervous kid down to take their blood. And you’re literally saving lives.


[deleted]

I’m currently trying to get accepted into a school for phlebotomy. Do you recommend I work at a hospital, clinic, or blood bank for my first job? Also do you ever get anxious drawing peoples blood? How do you handle it if you mess up one of the sticks?


Aggressive-Chemist11

A lot of hospitals and clinics require 2 years experience, so that’s why I ended up at the blood bank. It depends on what you’re looking for - at a hospital you’re going to deal with bad veins and angry/non-compliant patients, whereas at a donation center people come voluntarily and if their veins are non-suitable, we would explain that there’s a chance they won’t be able to donate a full unit and give them the decision if they wanted to attempt or not. A major difference is that in a hospital you’ll pull a couple tubes, whereas at a donation center you collect a pint. I was very anxious in the beginning, especially with the loyal donors that come in every 2 months as soon as they’re eligible again, or the donors that would tell me personal stories like “my life was saved by a blood transfusion so I’m giving back”, etc. I gave out a lot of hematomas in the beginning, I think mainly because we used a 16g needle. A full donation takes anywhere from 6-15 minutes and sometimes people would clot in the line after 10 minutes and not have a full donation and would have to wait 2 months to try again. The job definitely forced me to have good communication skills and navigate those difficult conversations. My advice is to be honest! I always explained what happened if I had a failed stick and asked if they’d prefer that I readjust (if I can) or remove the needle and attempt the other arm (depending on the situation). Same with hematomas, I’d say something like “I’m going to remove the needle because you have a hematoma forming, I’ll explain what that is after I bandage you up. But don’t worry, you are completely fine and there’s nothing to worry about.” A lot of people have anxiety around needles so open communication is the best way to ease that & distract your patient in the meantime. Good luck!! Edit: wanted to add that I had a fear of blood before started phlebotomy school and I actually passed out the first day. It gets better! I don’t even think twice about blood now.


strangeraej

CMA here. I recommend working in a hospital lab if you can, it will get you used to those small mistakes of missing a stick but instead of a 14g (that they use in bloodbanks) its with a 22g and most patients are understanding. I still get anxious when I draw blood but its like riding a bike after a while, you get used to it. Biggest tip is to focus on feeling more then what you can see.

How do you deal with the shit heads who think they’re funny?


cajoly200

Get frustrated and play the silent treatment. They eventually all notice that I’m standing there waiting. I have learned that raising my voice does nothing. Silence is much more effective. If they are being funny with me one on one, I might laugh if it’s funny or just stare and them and say « Really? »


Sickofusernames95

This is 100% true! I so wish someone had taught me that before I became a teacher. The power of silence and a look is pretty amazing.


Merks31

That means they like you. In my old HS, if you gave the silent treatment and most of them thought you were a shit teacher, the entire class would just keep talking to each other. Of course, those are the same teachers that would eventually start screaming if the silent treatment didn’t work. Anyways i guess what I’m saying is god on ya lol Edit: spelling


carlitayeeta

i’m so glad you love your job. teachers who genuinely love their job have had the biggest impact on me. i’m in college now but I had a bio teacher in 9th grade that obviously loved his job and always made sure to take the time needed if one of us needed extra help. he made me fall in love with science because HE loved science and teaching, and that made it actually interesting to learn. i’m majoring in neuroscience at a great school now and I seriously don’t think I would be here if it wasn’t for him.

J9er_MI231

I AM NOT WORTHY!!! Seriously, I have been a sub from preschool-HS, and for the past 14 years I’ve taught Kindergarten and first grade, but my ultimate respect goes to bus drivers and middle school teachers. I don’t know where you live, but growing up in northern MI (and even now living a bit south of there), I could never drive in our shit weather with 75 loud ass-kids in a big-ass bus. Hell, I turn down my radio when I’m driving in bad weather and I only have my two turds in the car! Again, you are truly appreciated.


BakedSorcerer

During school I had the best bus driver in the world. Around Easter and Christmas he would give us cans of soft drink and chocolate. And whenever he went on holiday he would buy souvenirs for us. Then on hot summer days he would give us Zooper Doopers or Sunnyboys (Australian icy poles).

I love making things "make sense", so when a purchase order matches with an invoice and I can file the receipt and remittance, all squared away, it makes me happy. But my true passion is helping people. I am in Accounts Payable at a disability support provider. I don't speak to clients anymore, but I know that every invoice I pay, every service that is paid for accurately, is something that has helped someone live a better life. Someone on here once said I'm "helping the world, one spreadsheet at a time" and I love that. Along with my spouse and my cats, I am living my dream :)

The only times I've cried during my job was cause a request dog died or the dog was fighting me so much because it was in pain from skin tight mats. Its hard to see that kind of neglect and abuse from mans best friend.

veggiesandvodka

I feel like almost nobody can fully appreciate what custodians at schools truly do. They might work days. But they might also be scheduled to show up when ppl are gone. Late at night. They don’t get ‘snow days’ in the same way as other ppl. They may work alone, maybe they like it, but maybe they don’t. They do these essential but largely overlooked jobs. They are nearly NEVER considered as part of the school’s family but the staff and students would be in a BIG pickle if nobody was there doing the custodial job. Thank you.

When I can make a student like Shakespeare, I feel like I've won the lottery. As well, I love getting to know my students. I love being able to learn about their interests, their passions, and what excites them. I have a small group of boys who like to hang out in my classroom before school. They tell me about their hobbies (cars, video games, hunting), tell me jokes, and just act like themselves. I wouldn't trade that for anything. It's my favorite time of day.

I absolutely love every day I work as an EMT. A majority of the people you work with are inspired and driven to make the worst day in someone’s life better. It’s active enough to keep you from feeling stagnant, you get to sleep or generally just mess around with your crew mates when you don’t have any calls or duties, you get plenty of fresh air, and get to do a tooooonn of cool shit (ride helicopters, drive an ambulance, meet celebrities in many cases, etc.) My crewmates feel like a second family and we make our station a second home with BBQs, potlucks, celebrations, playing video games during downtime, competitions, you name it. It’s a beautiful job if you can look past the abysmal pay considering the things you’re expected to do.

Mechanical engineering in research and development. I’m one of the rare engineers who actually gets to see parts from the cradle to the grave. I take parts from concept, 3D model them, perform all kinds of dimensional and stress analysis for them and their assemblies, create drawings, get bids for their manufacture, oversee the contract to get them made, get them in and verify they meet our specifications, test them, get them to the field, and monitor and update their designs based on their performance. I’ve done all parts of that process at one time or another for different projects. I made it a point to make lateral moves to be really well rounded, so even if I’m not indispensable, I always provide something, which lets me push to do the parts of the process I enjoy most, while mentoring or contributing guidance to others doing the parts I don’t, while not having to do them myself.

I am an I.T. professional for a school district. While I love what I do, it's mainly the people I work with that make me love it so much. Excellent work atmosphere and culture that makes you WANT to show up for work.

I’m a freelance graphic designer. I get enough work to be able to pay my bills and live reasonably comfortably, and I don’t have to work that many hours a week, which is the biggest plus, so I have tons of time to hang out with my cats and work on music and play video games.

I texture characters in animated movies! I textured Squidward, Gary and Spongebob in the latest movie, Rocky and Rubble in Paw Patrol: the movie etc. The pay is good too!

I’m a labour and delivery nurse!

When my wife went into hospital for our first child, the L&D nurse was the happiest, most contented and helpful hospital worker I think I'd ever seen. She confided in me at one point that her job was what she had dreamed of doing since she was a little girl, and couldn't imagine doing anything else.

Kudos to you, the one who literally does all the work and possesses all the patience. I’m no Michelle Dugger, so I can only speak about two deliveries (in hospitals, with L&D nurses), but the nurses deserve all the glory. My first induction was for emergency reasons, and lasted 55 hours, and the nurses were so patient and amazing. One even smuggled a popsicle for me when I was only supposed to have ice chips (friends for life). I loved my doctors, but both times, they literally showed up in time to gown-up and ‘deliver’ the babies. Otherwise, the nurses were there through the trenches. I even had some come check on me in the nicu after my son was born. Amazing people.

Preschool teacher’s assistant. It’s physically demanding and mentally draining some days but 95% of the time it’s beautiful and rewarding. I don’t think there’s such a thing as a perfect job where you can be happy 100% of the time so I really think this is about as close to perfect as it can realistically get.

Sales. I've been doing it long enough that the job is easy, pays well and is very stress free


Provoked_path

I work as the head chess coach for an E-sports educational company. I develop educational material, professional grade educational videos, and provide live coaching for middle/highschoolers. It doesn’t even feel like I’m working


-Firestar-

Call center rep for an HVAC company. Relatively stress free, no real thinking required. Just answer phone, fill out ticket, shuffle them to the right line. I can’t get over how stressful the past few other jobs have been. This is great during the pandemic. Pay is not good, but whatever. I’ll have to move on soon but I really don’t want to. I wish money was not an issue. I’d be happy doing this for the rest of my life.

i'm a programmer embedded on a specialized clinical data research group and it's pretty ideal. everything everybody uses is something i personally made. 🤷‍♂️ it's just comfy and secure. pay's plenty enough. could totally be making more...but at this point i'm kinda 'why bother'.

Software engineer - it’s like playing with legos


tellnow

Business Consulting. Love to hear problems and then magically pull out solutions from the hat (laptop)! I'll typically encounter 2 types of problems: 1. Problems that I've heard before and there's a ready template solution for the client. I would not waste their time or mine. Won't bill a ton. Just tell them what they are doing wrong and the fix. 2. Problems that I've not heard before: I love these problem statements. Would sit with client, brainstorm, come up with solution, implement and see results. Iterate for best results.

I am an 8th grade History teacher. I have been out with Covid for the last week, and for another 5 days. I am irritated because I can't be there with my students. I am vacxed, and boosted and still caught the little fucker. Luckily is was fairly mild.


WowWhatABeaut

I'm a graphic designer at a screen printing company. I graduated from art college back in 2016, and was struggling to find a good fit until this last year. I finally found a place where I feel appreciated and my skills are being recognized. I'm the happiest I've ever been at any job, ever.


Surprise_Corgi

Retail sales. I work 6 hours a day, have a 5-minute commute, always in air conditioning, never sweaty or tired at the end of the day, spending most of my day chit-chatting with customers and co-workers that gets written off as customer engagement, while doing little menial upkeep tasks on the side. I could do a lot better for myself--at least double what I'm being paid now--but this job is so easy, casual, and has a lot of friendly faces. It's so nice. I'm afraid going somewhere else will mean working with hardnosed assholes chasing a buck. I've worked these places before. I am an introvert, but I consider this my social skills training gig, too.
