    Yes, this post is a bit late, sorry about that, but the way you type - a b'gillion wpm, you'll make some bank on that job. Good transcriptionists with a working knowledge of medical terms are hard to find. Besides, I think it's very interesting stuff. (Please consider the source here - I think all things legal are fascinating, too. )

    Good luck!

    Well...let me jump in this discussion...
    Right now, I work for an attorney and handle all of the real estate transactions (closing your loans when you purchase or refinance property-both commercial and residential) I handle probably close to $75-$100 million in loans each year.

    Previous jobs:
    1st job was a cashier at Wendy's in high school....still their food!
    Worked as a cashier at Eckerd Drug Stores
    Worked as a cashier at Big B Drug Stores
    Photographer at Sears Portrait Studio (thought I wanted to be a photographer..that job changed my mind quickly!!)
    Rental agent at Hertz Rent-a-Car
    Cashier then promoted to Office Manager at local department store
    Cashier then promoted to Office Manager at large chain grocery store
    Receptionist then promoted to Mortgage/Consumer Loan Department
    Payroll/Office Manager for Electrical Company
    Receptionist for Large Real Estate Company

    I've been fortunate...I've liked the majority of my jobs and have managed to keep some of the friendships intact from earlier jobs.

    Tho I have a question: What is minimum wage now???!!! I'm sure its still appalling!

    My job list is pretty dull:

    Babysitter/nanny (in high school)
    Research assistant (mostly lab work)
    Research engineer (environmental)
    ---> in 5-6 years ---> University professor! (I just started my PhD)
    Don't let the small things sweat

    I've been working at the same company since I was 16 (over 7 years). I started out as an Business Professional Student in high school, promoted to Office Assistant, then to Senior Administrative Assistant, and now Administrative Associate.

    If I told you where, I'd have to kill you all.

    I was an 8th grade reading teacher/soccer coach for 8 years. When I had my daughter 4 years ago, I quit to stay home and have babies. I'm starting graduate school in the spring. I figure I can finish by the time my kids are both in school and then use the Masters to teach a couple of classes at the college level. That'd be a great part time gig for me so I can still take my kids to school, pick them up, and basically be home when they are.

    I am currently ( past year and 1/2 ) a graphic designer. I make design and stick on the custom graphics on signs. ( like lettering and designs ).

    Before I was here I worked at a gas station

    Before that I made 9.45/hr as a 3rd shift cashier at a pharmacy. Cool job but hated my boss ( henve the gas station job )

    uh...video store clerk ( left only for the 9.00/hour )

    vacum sales *blush*

    babysitter

    mommy

    deli clerk

    grocery store cashier

    basically, I have done lots of customer service. It's ok but the pay sucks. Here I get my own office and can hide and play on the FoRT all day!
    I might as well work. I'm in a bad mood anyway.

    Self-employed.

    DH and I are Ad Agency folk who took our toys and went home. He's the designer, I'm the writer and techie. Acrobat and the Internet mean we can live anywhere. We took advantage of that and live in an area of Canada that actually has a Mediterranean climate (I kid you not, there are 3 such micro-climates).

    I wholeheartedly believe that we can be anything we want (within reason). It's important to believe in ourselves -- it's up to us to do what we can to become self-actualized.

    Dream. Be. You only live once.
