Sunday Social - Work

Sunday Social
What is your dream job? 

I have several: 2nd grade teacher, social media manager for a small company, running my own children's bookstore or any number of jobs at Walt Disney World.

I also wouldn't mind just being the Doctor's companion for awhile.

If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?

Travel! I love to travel, but we just don't have the budget for big trips. There are so many places I want to go, I'd have a hard time decided where to go first.

What piece of career advice would you give to someone just starting out in you field?

Um, don't? At least, not in Indiana! Teaching job openings are few and far between. If you really want to be a teacher, be willing to move to where the jobs are. I know that if I moved back to Florida, I could probably get a job again, but we want to stay here to start our family.

What would be your ideal "just for fun" job?

I assume this means a job that I would do just to work/keep busy, not because I needed the money.

For me, that job would be working at Disney World. I'd like to work in a store there or work on a ride. Or a Children's Activities Cast Member which is a lot like my summer day camp job, which I really enjoyed.

What was your first "real" job?

I worked for the family business during my summers in my teens. And while I got a paycheck and paid taxes, I don't really consider that a "real" job.

My first "real" job that I applied for and interviewed for was cashier at a grocery store. I did that during my breaks from college for a couple years.



  1. You're my new favourite blogger now you've said you'd like to be the Doctor's companion :)

  2. I am sorry about our dumb state and the way they underpay teachers! Visiting from Social Sunday! Have a great week!

  3. NC is no place to be a teacher either. They just received pay-cuts. It's so back-asswards. I think working at Disney would be so much fun!
