What job field do you work in or what do you study?

I have a part-time job currently (still at high school) and plan to go to university next year. But other than Japanese, I am a little clueless as what to study. And I want to be able to make a use of the things I study at university so I was wondering what you guys do and if/ why you enjoy it!

I have a BBA in business information systems (digital media). I also studied biomedical laboratory science but quit before graduating. I only had about half a year's worth of studies left but my health just couldn't take it anymore :( I even did my thesis... I can work in clinical chemistry and haematology labs 'cause I finished all those studies, but I don't even want to try anymore...

I'm currently on sick leave, but I've worked in many places: post office, mail sorting centre, school, help desk, laboratories... I think I've enjoyed working in the post office the most.

I majored in Psychology and recently passed the licensure examination for Psychometricians. I haven't applied to any jobs yet since I'm ~resting~ hahaha because I immediately started reviewing for the exam after I graduated.

I did my master's in Clinical Psychology but it was just too hard to find work around my area. So I am currently studying to be a registered nurse (RN). Unfortunately since the terms are so short and I have a lot to learn, there is no possible way I can work. But I used to be a caregiver. I have even worked at a grocery store and at a clothing store.

I have a degree in business but currently I'm just working part-time in a clothing shop. It's difficult to find a suitable job in the area where I live...

I have a BA in Japanese Language and Culture, but I am currently a produce manager in a main grocery retailer in the Midwest U.S. My husband keeps pushing me to leave retail and go back to school for my Masters, but there isn't really a school around me that has what I want to study and my job actually pays me pretty well since I'm in management.

I got my degree in International Studies with an emphasis on East Asia. Now I teach English in Japanese Elementary and Junior high schools. (Students constantly ask the ALT if they have a bf/gf- I always respond with Matsujun. The 3rd graders in ES believed me and rushed me at recess once to ask if it's true ^.^;;)

I'm a freelance English teacher in Chiba, Japan and currently studying movie making in Tokyo. Once I graduate, I might go to Chiba University; I haven't decided yet ;)

Field of study was in Applied Physics (undergrad, grad school, but no postdoc), destined for academe . . .

Then I got tired of watching old profs and senpais/dohais running after funding so switched to industry (with the intention of returning to academe in 5 years). 12 years later i am still in industry (oil & gas to be specific) and i have been a field engineer, a physics engineer, and have been in various roles in quality.

Now working on IT in relation to quality management.

Arashi has kept me sane 10 1/2 years of those 12 years :heart:

I’m not currently working, but my last job was as a kindergarten teacher. I enjoy working with children, but with that particular job the stress of dealing with the other staff overwhelmed the joy of helping the kids. I am thinking of trying another job with kids but a different environment.

I'm currently finishing writing my thesis so I can finally graduate college. I studied Biology and I specialize in vertebrate anatomy. My thesis is on lizard bones. But I also studied specialized translation in science and technology. I've worked for the marine mammals laboratory in my faculty doing research and as a translator, but unfortunately I haven't gotten a job in two years.

I'm currently studying AB Literature and I'm about to start my thesis soon. I also try to learn and improve my Japanese to be able to help in translations in some communities. Also, there are a few reasons that urged to take Literature but one of them is my wish to write better Arashi fanfics (because the first one I wrote really sucks T_T )

Currently, I'm not working. Will be focus on my health issue T_T
