As my first year of university winds to a close it's gotten me to thinking about my future career. It's also gotten me to wondering what everyone on paleo hacks does
It would be great to hear that everyone works outside or lives self-sustained lives on some idyllic farmhouse in the country but I imagine many of you have office jobs? Has paleo inspired you to change careers in any way? Or do you love your job?
I'm an English Literature student but before returning to university I worked as a junior web developer and then for a building society called Nationwide
Even at the age of 26 I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up!
I'm a cook in a bar/restaurant that specializes in carbohydrates and huge portions haha. And yes, its really hard to stay paleo sometimes. None of the food on our menu is paleo, so I completely rely on food I bring and have to resist the urge to eat all the free food that I can. Even though the fries look SO GOOD
I'm a senior mechanical engineering student (two semesters left) so I suppose I will be trying to get a job in that industry after I graduate, though my real interests lie in other places so who knows what I might end up doing. Right now I work in a pet grooming shop. Some of my dream jobs are: stunt car driver, outdoor survival expert, paleo restauranteur & blogger, recording artist, and so on. At 31, I pretty much still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, lots of things I guess.
I work at Target with very little ambitions in life. Thanks to my diet, exercise, mental training and meditation, I am one of the top team members at my target. (4 out of a 100+ workers got the max pay raise) However, for years I've been learning to trade forex, and futures. It's a brutally challenging job with a huge pay off. I want trading for pure freedom and not excess wealth.
At 21, I started as an LSA onboard Amtr@k trains. It stopped me from going to college because of a) the pay, b) the benefits, and c) Railroad retirement. My husband owns his own business (a gun shop & gun range) so the benefits & RR are a great reason to not quit. It's not ideal -- especially now with the way I eat -- because I'm basically the faux-bartender in the cafe car. If you've ever been on a train, you probably know what I sell (candy, chips, pop & lots and lots of bread...XD).
I'm a licensed massage therapist who hasn't practiced in 5 years.
I've also worked for a co-op for 10 years. I've done most things you can think of... Currently, I'm the beer and wine coordinator. I'm also one of the go to people for all things gluten free.
just graduated with a double major in women and gender studies, & communication studies... looking forward to going to grad school next year (mean time i'm a sales coordinator at a corporate branding firm).. the plan is to become a psychotherapist and spread the word of holistic health, the mind body connection, and how important food choices are for mental health! :)
