I was so, so lucky; I actually started working part time (for low low pay) while working in the lab after volunteering in the lab. Then after I graduated, I was hired on for the summer.

I applied to other labs, and heard back from one out of about 10 that I applied to.

I'm not interviewing there because I got into a master's program, and I'd rather do that. :]

Occupation: professional hippie tree dweller

Haha. I'm a contractors assistant. I like it but it's a simple job and as such it doesn't pay that well. I'd like to be a contractor some day with my own business, but I don't have much confidence in my skill. I'm looking for something a guy who's not too smart and got no college learning can do. There's a taxidermist who might be willing to mentor me and that could be an interesting and profitable endeavor.

What do I do? I work a pet food store.

Do I like it? Yes! I'm a total pet food nerd, and I love learning about new products. I love when I have customers that I'm able to help. I love (the majority of) my co-workers. There are definitely things I'd change, but for the most part, I'm content.

Do you need a degree? No, but I'm currently working on a Veterinary Technician degree, that I may or may not use. I'm not really sure yet.

What do you do? I'm an attorney working for a "Biglaw" firm in the field of federal energy regualation

Do you like it? A lot more now that I no longer work at crazy house (Google Dewey & LeBoeuf for details). Its hard, time consuming, and stressful, but its interesting and pays well

Do you need a degree for it? Yes, you need a Juris Doctor.

Lilavati, your earth and moon sig is epic, and now the quote on it (I just noticed it) is even more epic. Just saying!

What do I do? I work a pet food store.

Do I like it? Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. Love helping people who are willing to learn, nerding over pet food/products every day, most of my coworkers. Hate dealing with people who are doing stupid things like declawing kittens or want a muzzle for their dog to wear for asinine reasons like "he doesn't like my grandchildren, so I want him to wear this so he learns to like them" , when my coworkers screw things up that I have to fix, working with highschoolers, THE PAY, etc.

Do you need a degree? Nope.

I'm hopefully going back to college in the spring, mainly driven by the fact that I can't live on less than $10 an hour for the rest of my life.

My other half is a funeral director, but he didn't need a degree (granted, he's the 5th generation in a family business). They do need license though. He also loves it, but its very demanding on his time.

Me...

I'm a looked after children's social worker (kids in care). I was doing child protection till about 2 months ago.

Do I like it? Some days yes, some days no. It's a demanding job, but where I am now means I have less than half the cases I was holding before, my manager isn't a total moron, its rural, and just runs better. All that means its much much better. I nearly had a nervous breakdown in the last position.

Degree. Yes, you need a degree in social work.
