By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

What is your profession?

We all have to earn money, and there are many different jobs that we can have in order to do this, so what is yours?

If you're a student, you can say what you would like to be when you are older.

I am a writer, editor and proofreader, and I have been doing this ever since I graduated from my degree course back in 2012.

    I'm a jack of all trades. All I know is that apart from one year teaching history, my degree subject had little to do with my work!

    That is great that you can turn your hand to anything @mheredge I wish that I was like that. Unfortunately there are not many things that I can do - but the things that I do, I do well.

    Work experience is great @grizl no matter whether it is in your subject field or not, as it can help you to learn a lot of skills. Making your parents proud is a wonderful reason to want to do well.

    I'm a management engineer and at the moment I'm doing an internship in costs analysis in finance department. is not exactly the field of my studies too because is a mix between technical and financials skills. I think nowadays is a little bit hard to find the exactly field of our studies especially in Italy, But i don't now the real situation in other country. What do you think about this? do you work in your study field?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,105 mod
    I have to say that accounting was never my favourite @DarioM and @grizl. I spent several years working as a 'management consultant' which was very interesting though, as I enjoyed analysing problems and then coming up with ideas to solve them. By contrast working in financial regulation later was deadly dull and is the reason I quit the City. Money is not everything @grizl.
  • grizlgrizl Posts: 26 ✭✭
    @mheredge indeed money is not everything. But we all need money, right?
    money is not everything but without money we can do nothing.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 5,337 mod
    Your profession sounds interesting @DarioM . It is difficult to get jobs in our chosen fields here, too. For example I have a degree in psychology, however I am currently working as a writer. I love my job though, and I wouldn't want to change it.

    I am from England @DarioM and I work on many different projects, including article and blog writing, and also novels and novel editing. There is always something different every day, and that's what I like the most about the job.

    Like @mheredge I am a jack of all trades. My mentor really believes that I can do everything if I am given a challenge. ;)
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 5,337 mod
    @Learningdiva2 that sounds like a wonderful job, as the environment is very important, so we need people who will protect it.

    Banglish: 'What service are you in?' I guessed he meant to ask what job I had.
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 0 ✭✭
    @Learningdiva2 sorry for my ignorance but what do an environmentalist do? do you work for some ONG or what?i think it is a very good job and the world needs people like you.
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭
    @DarioM I am currently involved in reporting of different environmental issues which we are facing like air pollution, water pollution, land degradation, noise pollution, risk assessment, hazard analysis, screening, climate change and many more.

    That sounds very interesting indeed. I expect it was hard work to qualify.
