    I do security, whoo! In the past I've been a clerk at a grocery store, landscaping, stocking/shipping for an adult toy store (as in the lame kind that sell $1,000 porcelain dolls to grandmas, not dildos), chef, and janitorial duties.

    I also am also currently going to school. I wish I could be a full time student.

    scientist (biochemistry) - it is rather fulfilling. I love to put ideas into structure, applying it to the real world and thus contribute to the wellfare of others. I love working in the lab, doing my magic with not to much people around me to deal with.

    But there is a big whole. I can't use Fi enough, can't put my soul into it as much as I want to. It is all to sec to me. So I'm trying to fill that gap in my personal time with shiatsu and a bit of art :D

    (I get free beer)

    I make beer. It is a small operation and I work primarily by myself. It is challenging both mentally and physically. I only wish it paid better.

    Internal sales specialising in rubber conveyor. It is fullfulling to the extent that I enjoy the technical aspect to it but very draining having to work with so many people constantly, though my situation has improved since I've moved into my own office *sighs with relief*

    (enjoying the technical aspect might sound strange but I have never experienced a technical side to my job before and find it challenging, which I enjoy which then in turn is refreshing. I at first did struggle with the technical side but my abstract way of thinking allows me to be able to do it, but in a different way which has suprised some colleagues, as I sometimes come up with solutions from unexpected angles and can do this quite quickly as I see the bigger picture).

    Life does not always allow you to follow your desires or dreams but you make do.....this saying comes to mind: when life gives you lemons make lemonade

    I am a housewife/student currently, and no it is not very fulfilling. In the past I have worked in the legal field and as a librarian. I have also worked in bars and as a nurse's aide while in school.

    I'm a teacher.

    Perfect job for me and I'm happy at the moment, but teaching is not enough for me at all. I'd like to be the R&D manager of my own school - someone else's school is also acceptable. but The R&D manager cannot be changed. Although I'm not gonna quit teaching. In order to be a good R&D manager ,you have to know what's happening in classes. So I'd like to have 2 classes when I'm the manager please ^^.

    what job do you do?
    I am in the middle of my English bachelors degree at the University of Copenhagen. On the side I work for the Friendly Neighbors organisation that helps refugees make networks in their local communities. I also work as a campaign organizer for the Social Democratic Youth of Denmark, and as an activist for the Danish Social Democrats. On the side I am currently doing a start-up improv comedy podcast with a friend.

    Are you happy and fulfilled?
    Sometimes. I try to do what I feel like, and what I feel is important work. I have an addictive personality, so I try to have as little free time as possible. I'm vehemently trying to quit smoking, but the amount of free time that university gives me is making it very hard. It's when I'm the busiest that I am the most content. Psychiatrists recommend that you relax as much as possible between tasks, but it stresses me out more than it helps me, so I've tried to make it work my own way.

    I am a manager in a Career counseling service.
    I am very happy with this field, I tried it after finding out that I was an INFJ a few years back.

    I used to work in HR and hated the lack of ethic in my job, I never really felt good at my job.
    I tried career counseling and it immediately worked. After 4 years I got offered a management position.

    Unfortunately I have to look for the same job somewhere else now, as the nonprofit that I work for has financial problems. But it was a great experience.

    I don't want to say too much because of privacy, but it's an office job with angry clients (most of the time, lol). It tires me emotionally, mentally and physically. Lots of phone calls every day and also working in an open-plan office which is not optimal working environment for a very introverted person. There's a chance to work from home but meeting the coworkers is important to a general well-being when working.

    I really can't wait to apply to university whenever that becomes a possibility for being able to change careers.

    Working to live rather than living to work. Its not fun I know.

    You sound like you have a plan though. Take the steps you need to get the skills and try to make your passion your career.

    Or at least find a career thats less stressful. Or a less stressful employer...

    what job do you do?
    I work for a bank's operations center, at least for the past year and 3 months.
    I also work part-time as a food delivery guy.
    I am a part-time student at an IT academy

    Are you happy and fulfilled?
    No.

    But...I am very grateful and feel very fortunate. I work to pay the bills.
    It's a lot better now than it used to be. So I'm thankful. I dodged the bullet of being in a world of total shit since my late-twenties.
    I hope to find happiness and fulfillment when I can finally finish developing my land and do whatever the Hell I want to do.
