Honestly, my 2 cents.
Very few jobs in this ecomony are what I would consider stable (as in reliable). Here (my specific part of Canada), I'd say jobs in the food industry are stable as people will always have to buy food.... so for example, the job that I did have, was a very stable job.. No lay offs, minimum 40 hr week, more during easter and xmas, and unionized... so honestly once past probation, unless you did something really stupid, you wouldn't lose your job. (my specific job that is... I was a cleaner of egg grading equipment, it was heavy manual labour, and it is a mandatory job...the CFIA inspects the equipment, so no matter what, I would have had a job).
No, it was not my dream job, and honestly, at my age ( 32 ) I will never have my dream job. I am ok with that.
I just want a job LOL.... in this economy, any job is better than no job. (within reason of course)
Prior to being pulled out of school, I was in college taking Web Design and Development. Do I think I'd get a job in it? Ummmm, no. Maybe, on the databasing end of it or game programming.... I love web design, love graphical work, and actually came to enjoy some programming. But the market is saturated with people who have more than my skills/schooling.
I would love to be a professional student
So many different things interest me, I would love to learn about as much as I could.
My ultimate career choice: social worker or psychiatrist. That is in a dream world though. I don't have the money or the ability to spend 3+yrs going to college/univeristy.
What makes me happy? Having a job that allows me to feed my family, and live comfortably...you know, be able to go out once a month without worrying about buying groceries. I really don't mind what that job is, I just want to support my family.
Now, I don't know what WSIB is going to do with me once I'm healed, because I won't be able to go back to college for the same course..... so they will have a couple choices.... 1 is not nice, and 2 would be sending me back for more schooling in a different field. Which of course I'm hoping they pick more schooling, in which case I will pick a course that there actually are jobs available.
