    What do you do for a living? I just started a new job last week as a part-time office coordinator for an education company. I also tutor a few different kids and teach a reading class for additional income. I did teach high school English for four years, but lost my job in June. So far I am liking the office thing-- it's different from what I'm used to but it's a good change!

    What does your FI do for a living? FI sells home insurance. He's lucky because he actually works from home, so he never has to worry about commuting or anything like that. He works in pjs and sweats--- not a bad job IMO!

    Me - My job deals with GIS, remote sensing, image processing for rivers, agricultural land, etc.  I'm also finishing up a degree in water resources engineering, but my job will stay the same basically and I'll get paid more!  I do a lot of remote sensing applications and work with drones that capture imagery for remote sensing purposes. All civilian, no military stuff.

    FI - He's an analytical chemist and designs mass spectrometers that collect samples from the far atmosphere.  These instruments go on satellites that leave the earth.  My little smarty pants.

    What does your FI do for a living? He is an analyst at Babson Capital (another investment firm owned by Mass Mutual). So we basically do the same thing accept he has to work way longer hours than me ):

  • Madison, now I can see why you commented positively on my upcoming trip this month!
  • Me: I'm in politics. I do partly PR, partly policy officer about education, partly personal assistant. I do NOT enjoy the PR part. I recently applied for a university job, which would include getting a PhD. 

    FI: Is a journalist. We met in a postgrad journalism course. He mostly covers economic and financial news.

  • What do you do for a living? I am a stay at home mom for now. I love being able to spend time with our kids and make sure FI has nothing else to worry about besides going to work.

    What does your FI do for a living? He is a 3rd shift Back Up Team Leader (Assistant Manager) for Johnsonville Sausage. He has also been creating Excel files where they are logging information. They want him to go back to school to learn more about Excel and computer programming. He's brought a work computer home to work on it a few times and I can't believe what he can get Excel to do already.

  • Me:  Currently working in a sales/marketing/customer service position at an engineering company that manufactures fluid control components (zzzzz). 

    I've been sending out my resume like crazy to try to land ANYTHING new because I absolutely hate working for this company and I'm solely used as a dumping ground for everyone else.

    I graduated last year with a masters in school library media specialization, but have yet to land a job in that field.  NO JOBS!  YAY!  :(

    Him: Desktop support at a children's hospital.  He hates his job, too, and he's currently finishing his computer science degree in hopes of finding a programmer job.

    I am a management consultant mainly working with IT executives at fortune 500 companies and federal agencies. Sometimes I love it and other times not, it just depends on the project I'm on.

    My FI is a medical school student. He wants to do emergency medicine, most likely. I feel like he's been in school forever, but now he only has 1.5 more years - we're so excited!

  • What do you do for a living?
    I am a registered nurse, just graduated this past April. I work for a not-for-profit Aboriginal organization doing health promotion, education, program planning, etc. I share my time between two positions and the other one is promoting health in the local school district.
    I love my job but do really miss the hands-on nursing care, one-on-one with patients. I love educating people about their health conditions and helping them take control and learn how to improve their own health. That is my real passion and I will get back to it someday! I plan to go back to school for my masters as a Nurse Practitioner within the next several years, which will be 2 more years of school

    What does your FI do for a living?
    FI works for the government in the ministry of transportation. He does inspections on big trucks, basically, and makes sure these transport vehicles are following thei guidelines and rules to keep the roads safe. He loves it and is actually the youngest person in this position in this province! So proud of him.

    Haha, we only have 4 classes (block schedule) and 1st hour is my prep and I usually have everything planned way ahead of time so I have nothing to do from 7:30 to 10 am. Then we have a long break between classes. We also have a split lunch during 3rd hour so that's another break! There are days when my deaf students don't show up so then I'd have basically nothing to do until 11:35. These days suck!

    What do you do for a living?
    I'm an attorney at a big law firm in NYC. It's brutal almost all the time. Right now, I'm primarily working on policyholder-side insurance recovery, where we represent large corporations attempting to recover from their insurer for amounts paid out in settlement of various types of claims. (Yes, it's as boring as it sounds.) Our firm has one of the most highly respected insurance recovery practices out of all big law firms, so we are super busy all the time. 

    What does your FI do for a living?
    He's also an attorney at another big law firm in NYC, but he does corporate work. He's also a bit more senior than I am, so his job is much more stressful (mine's just brutally long hours and boring).

  • Me: I'm a technology specialist in an elementary school. I work with teachers on integrating technology into their teaching, maintain the network & webpages, run a live morning news show with our students, troubleshoot and do some model teaching.

    FI: has his own IT consulting business. He's self-employed and in addition to consulting, he develops software and anti-spam appliances.

    Our kids have NO chance of not being computer geeks!

  • What do you do for a living? I'm currently a subsitute teacher at the locak high school. I'm building based, which means I work everyday, even if they don't really need me. Though that rarely happens. Our school is on pretty much all of the countries "bad" lists (though we are finally off the dangerous list!) and in the process of restructuring, so that can get interesting. But my job is basically babysitting most of the time. I also, just finished my masters in Edcuation and am now certified as a high school English teacher, so I'm looking for full time teaching jobs.
    What does your FI do for a living? FI currently works for NYS tax department. He works in the call center and absolutly hates it. Its basically just a job to pay the bills. We're actually really lucky he has the job since there is now a hiring freeze. What he really wants to do is stand-up comedy. Unfortunatly there isn't much money in that until you are famous. So for now he works during the day and does stand-up at night and on weekends. In fact, he is so busy with writing, shows, and a podcast he does that I feel like I never get to see him.

  • What do I do for a living...I teach English to Italians.  I teach all ages.  Currently, I'm teaching 11-14 year olds in the morning.  I go to an underwear company during the employees' lunch hours and do 1 on 1 lessons and  I teach adults (25-65) in the evening.  I like my job but I must say I'm kind of bored.  Before this I taught Italian and Spanish in a NYC High School.

    Fiancé is a computer programmer and xbox addict.  He's great to have around cause I am completely computer illiterate.
