Do you like your job?

I know we've had threads listing what we all do for a living - our day jobs. But what I think is more important than that is do you like what you do? If you could go back and do it again or had the financial option to start a new career now would you choose something else?

I think every job has things you like or don't like but for the most part I like what I do. If I could go back maybe I'd be a pilot but honestly I think I would stay the same since I still plan to become a pilot just not a commercial one.

I'd love that.

I've been writing since I was a teenager and it didn't occur to me until a few years ago that it's really what I want to do so I'm trying to work into it slowly now. I love my day job and it's fun and stable and challenging but if I could do it again, I might try to get into writing earlier.

Well, I didn't start out to be a magazine editor. I was planning to be an actress, but I hated the audition process. My next choice was to follow in my dad's footsteps and become an advertising copywriter (sometimes watching Mad Men is like a total déjà vu of my childhood), but that didn't work out either.

After knocking around at a number of things, I answered an ad in the New York Times for an associate editor gig at Playgirl. Got the gig and found my calling.

I'm proud of what we've been doing over at SexIs, and I get to work with some great people.

At the end of the day, being able to find talented writers and give them a platform to bring their voices to a larger audience is always satisfying.

I love my job. Mostly cuz I get to work on my balcony in a tank top and undies all day.

I'm quite jealous of your job

I'm one of those with 'golden handcuffs'! I hate my job - I just can't find anything that pays as well and our family has a high-overhead!

I hate my job, I get mistreated daily and get very little pay for what I do. I wish I could get another job but with the economy it's just not that simple.

I don't have a job, right now, to hate. My seasonal job, I love. I get to travel for free, hang out all day with firefighters and co-workers who are awesome, and make over $1000 a week.

Their are parts that I really do enjoy about both of my jobs, but I think if I had a choice, I'd probably try for something else. Not sure what field, but I do intend to go back to school for something in a few years when I'm not so burnt out on the whole idea.

I enjoy my job for the most part. I work from home selling beauty products. It's definitely an easy and fun job, however I don't make much money. That of course, is probably my own fault for not being a better business woman and getting out there and selling more! So I enjoy it, I just don't make much money. I want to be a work at home mommy some day though, so I started on the work at home part. Then I will add in the mommy part later.

I LOVE MY JOB, and loved my old job even more.

Currently ime working in receiving clerical for the USMC. I basicly write down all the Incoming marines information,if they have tatoos or birthmarks photograph them(its really irritating when they have them right above there vagina or penis or telling someone to bend over so i can see the tatoo on your ass so they have to take there undewear off enough to see the tatoo but you cant actually photgraph nudity but you have to get just the tatoo) and telling people to hurry up and keep moving cause we aint got all day. Its deffintily intresting ive saw people who are scared beyond belief and cant even think...then theres the ones who are so cocky i have to hold back from saying your in for a suprise youle be shown whos tough....i really do see all walks of life from the former homeless man in the city to the well manored country boy to the stuck up person to the former druggie is intresting....tatoos range from small roses on the breast to a girlfriends name on the bicepts and everything inbetween

If I had the chance to go back again I would do things a little differently and make sure I entered a building first and not 3 of my buddies who are no longer with us.....other then that ide love to do it all over again

I actually really like my job. So far (and since I'm young and moving around), I haven't held a job for over a year, but I feel like this is a job that I could easily stay with for more than a year as long as the hours don't kill me. (3rds) It's easy, I get freedom, and it's fun to not be hovered over all the time.

I like what I do, I don't like where I do it. Our management is screwed eight ways to Sunday in the head and it really interferes with my job enjoyment. I'm pretty much focusing on doing the best I can do and praying I get poached to a better company.

I do now that work for EdenFantasys. I've long wanted to work for a retail sex toy shop, and here I am! Working from home is great because it saves me gas money and wear and tear on my car (among other things). And who wouldn't love working with this community??
