    Sometimes you need a reminder,

    and tonight I had a GREAT reminder of why I love my job. I'm an excellent Librarian, and I take pride in the work that I do. I also THRILL with joy when students speak out during instruction - not just one but quite a few - "You're Awesome," "You are so helpful," "Thank...

    I Would Love My Job If...

    I would love my job if I could just get one. In late 2006, I saw the mortgage crash coming and decided to go to graduate school, so when the real estate business disappeared, I could get a good job. What I didn't foresee is that the housing industry underpins the entire US...

    Last week the general manager pointed out how

    everybody appreciates my personality and that's one of the greatest reasons why I love my job. Along with all of the women I get to "flirt" with. I could go on forever, but this bong is calling my name. Happy job = happy life

    I'm a gardener - Hard work is the best work,

    the satisfaction you feel after a long day makes me feel very worthy of life. I love to get home exhausted and sore and watch what ever sports are on while drinking a couple of 40oz of beer and a couple of sodas. I've been doing it since I was 10 and started full time by 15. I...

    I'm an Aircraft Structures Mechanic.

    I love my job! Cutting, shaving, bending bringing parts to life out of dimensions. Making sure the part isn't off by a thousands of an inch. Definitely a great career field, also working on becoming a mechanical engineer for the company too! :D

    Romancing the Job

    I think everyone who loves their job has to have a certain almost romantic flair for what they do.  Some jobs just sell themselves as fun, but when you have certain jobs most people would say were boring you really have to love what you do.  For example, I'm an engineer...
