  • I work full time, from home for an insurance company as an auditor. Been there for 14 years. I really like my job, and all the perks that come with it. I earn more than my husband, just b/c I have been there so long.

  • I was a teacher until I went on my maternity leave, and I will not be returning in the fall. I tutor for my college and local middle and high school students part time from home though. I also go to school full time for my MBA in finance.

  • I work a full time job and an on-call job. I work because we need the money lol. And I honestly don't think I could be a stay at home mom. I'd go crazy. My full time job I work with MR/DD adults in a sheltered work center. I'm a QMRP (case manager). My on call job I do crisis intervention in the ER for the health dept.

  • Yes I work full time as a probation officer. Why...hmm.... I always wanted to be either a social worker or a cop. I became a cop and was a child abuse investigator for several years. But I felt I was not getting enough...I could not follow these people for a long time and continue helping them. The probation field allows me to play the combination of both roles. I have done both juvenile & adult, and loved them both equally!
    If you're asking why I work, and not why I chose the job I did, I'd say I work because I'm a very social person and when I tried being a SAHM; I went absolutely stir-crazy!
    Hope this helped, and I answered your ?? :)
