Hmm, where to begin... Currently I am in admin. Prior to this I was working in a call centre (THE worst job in the history of all mankind - not pretty! :-( I challenge anyone to beat it). Pharmacy, bar maid, stablehand, jillaroo, receptionist, service station attendant, check out chick. Yep, I think that's all....

Working at a new job at present, group fitness instructor and personal trainer for a new fitness centre in town. Have been a fitness instructor for the past 5 years, before that administration at private hosptial.

I spent 2 years full time studying to become a fitness instructor because I wanted to work at something I loved doing.

I was a dietitian in my past life (BC - Before Children)...I only worked for a year before i had my first baby. I'm a "stay at home mum" now but i'm also studying nursing as I'm trying for a more "family friendly" career!!! So this will be my 3rd degree if i ever finish....to be honest i have absolutely no desire to "work" what-so-ever but my kids are still little so i am enjoying watching them grow up and being a part of it...I'm in no rush to get back to the ratrace!!!

back in the UK I used to run a boarding kennels near London, I did this for 20 years and did all the dog grooming too, I did my training in a London grooming salon.

Here I work in a large wholesale plant nursery (owned by Flower Power,Sydney) and I'm in charge of 2 igloos, Bougainvilleas and Hibiscus. I do this 3 times a week and for 2 days a week I work from home doing dog grooming! And at the weekends/evenings I do my other job, being a MUM!!!! and somewhere in between I fit in riding my horses!!

I work full time (5 days plus OT) in a Pathology Laboratory doing blood testing. I also run my horse stud and beef cattle farm after hours. It's a busy life that leaves no time for socialising and partying but I enjoy it.

Well while I was at school I worked for a race horse trainer riding and swiming the race horses after school.

I then studied and did a Diploma in horse management via correspondance and was then working for a horse stud riding the newly broken horses.

I then changed what I wanted to do and did a Diploma In Welfare and Mental Health. While doing this I worked for a lady feeding and looking afte their horses aswell as working at a community centre looking after children with "challenging behaviours".

I finished studying last year but am still working with the children but now I also work for ING in the Superannuation Department... YES definately didnt think I would be doing this but my mum works here and I got a job through her and I really enjoy it plus the hours go very quick.

I have to agree. When I moved back to the GC, I was horrified to see all the horse areas had been developed. I am blessed where I am with a lovely landlord and great facilities. It's a bit of a worry how much horses are being built out of se qld.

I started out in a nursery doing horticulture, then a friend offered me a job on a welsh pony stud so I jumped at the chance and blew off the horticulture. I stayed there for nearly two years and then went to work at a commercial TV station, from there into advertising, from there into marketing in Pharmaceuticals then back to advertising and as of yesterday I have resigned so I can spend more time with my kids while there young & get my EFA level 1 finished...but I am going to be so broke :-(

Gosh until you write them down you donít realise how many you have done. Oh well here are a list of my paid jobs that I have had over the years.

My first real paid work was working race horses before and after school for a local trainer, the only problem was that it had to be in the bush tracks as I wasnít allowed on the race track (too young by about 5 years)

My next paid job was as a stable hand at a local riding school (no comment there, stayed all of 3 months).

Shop Assistant (shoe shop, Yuck Yuck)

Riding Instructor / Pony Camp Co-ordinator this was heaps of fun as during term I did instructing but on holidays I organised camps and co-ordinated all the activities and allocation of riders to horses and that type of thing.

Collator putting together newspapers & the old receipt books, plus also doing other brochures etc

Compositor (is the old style desktop publisher before computers, OK I am showing my age here)

Stable/Stud Manager at a local stud, was on the smaller scale (50 mares and two stallions) so was able to do a lot more in depth work with babies as well as the broodies and stallions.

Groom for a public service organisation (wonít mention name as ashamed to be associated with them, hopefully the main perpetrators have retired or at least left their positions and the horses get treated OK now and not constantly drugged or treated like a bike or such)

Administration Assistant for an engineering firm, doing the odds and sods of office work.

Project Secretary for very large infrastructure projects (i.e. bridges, tunnels, roads that type of thing)

I am currently a Group Secretary / Executive Assistant still working on large infrastructure projects just dealing more with the environmental side of projects now.

At the moment I also teach riding on the weekends now to keep my sanity whilst in the city.

Well I've done a bunch of odd jobs while at school / uni including waitressing, pharmacy assistant, check out chick, newspaper-girl, even managed to get fired from KFC. Then was a lecturers assistant / tutorer at uni.

After graduating from uni I worked for a private design studio, an advertising agency in their art department, and now I work in-house (in a healthcare environment) as a graphic designer. Also do a bit of freelance at home.

I do agistment at home as well and look after 22 acres of run down farmland.

I'm trying to finish of my EFA Intro / Level 1 Instructors certificates.

Hopefully in the not to distant future I'd like to work totally from home, bit of design, bit of horse work etc etc

i've done a bit of this and a bit of that. mostly working in hospitality and cafes. i also worked as a security guard for a while at places like channel ten, quantas and crown casino among others. i have studied fine arts and professional writing and editing with my main interest in screenwriting, which i am now pursuing. am entering some screen writing competitions this year and having a short film made if all goes well. i have crewed on a couple short films, but i can't get much work without a car and the work is way harder and more boring than you would think.
i currently work at an in house cafe for just jeans group, which houses a few fashion labels. of ocurse all the pretty princesses come in and ask for salads and small portions cause they have to watch their weight and then they have a side of chips and stuff their faces with chocolate bars.
they really piss me off some times. but it's a good place to work overall.

I love reading about what everyone else has done!

I started grooming when I was 14 for an eventing team, was there for 3 years.
Head groom on a warmblood stud for about a year
Groom for a few different world cup sj's
General customer service in a printing business for 6 years, became manager for 2 years (in the meantime freelance grooming for eventers)
moved to canada to become head groom at a hunter yard (yard was great, horses were AWESOME, boss was horrible, so only lasted 3 months)
Manager at Pet Valu (pet food chain in Canada)
Back home to Aus and my managers job at the printing business opened up for me and I walked back into my managers position!

Have studied vet nursing, but decided it wasnt for me. I am hoping to study personal training next year when I have the spare $$$.

Cheers

Hi HM

After leaving school I started working full time at my parents business that I'd been working in part time on holidays. So from November 2002 until May 2004 I ran a mechanical workshop. From May 2004 until February 2007 I worked for Burson Auto Parts, first as a delivery driver and then on counter sales. As of March 2007 I have been PA to my dad's mortgage business. It's the best job ever because I work from home :7 Hopefully I'll be in this one awhile and then my stud will be off the ground and paying for itself.....

I did my HSC to be a librarian but walked into a CES and got a job as a jillaroo/trackwork rider instead. Later I left so I could get more money to ride my own horses. ( I hoped! )
Second job interveiw was for a pathology aide. Still work for the same large company 20 years later. ( different sites )
I specialise in histology, which now tends to mostly involve preparing human tissue samples ( eg; appendix,skin cancers etc) for a pathologist to diagnose.
This includes working in a local surgery to do what is called "MO" surgery. As a dermatologist operates to remove skin cancers, I cut and prepare the tissue for the doctor to look at instantly. The doctor can then see if the lesion is totally removed or not. This is a lot better for the many elderly patients. ( WEAR A HAT!! )

This is all strange that I'm doing it as I never liked the sight of blood. As I work in theatre now I think back to when I'd walk past a tissue dissection table and look the other way in case I saw something. And I know in tech when the class was to go to a autopsy I volenteered to stay and work. Very kind of me they said!
I think I was lucky that I fell into a job that I still like.

Senior sports trainer at a football club!!!! I looked after the under 19's, the reserves AND the seniors... Did everything - medical records, first aid, massages, strapping, water running, relationship counselling, spare date for the boys at family functions, etc. Best time of my life.... *sigh* AND my office was the change rooms, so I got to sit amongst a whole gaggle of gorgeous boys in their birthdays suits THREE TIMES A WEEK AND GET PAID FOR IT!!!!!!!

Amazing at the variety - but also the similarities - in everyone's jobs...

First job at a pony stub before and after school, shovelling paddocks, feeding up, handing young stock. Coll job, and I earned $13.00 a week! Saved it up and bought a Drizabone. Such loooooxury. Then worked in a nursery, doling out osmocote and propagating azaleas. Picked tomatoes and beans, then packed bean sprouts on a sprout farm - best summer jub ever. We wore bikinis and sarongs and our bosses were Orange People who played whale songs and made interesting cookies etc. Worked all though uni riding horses for people, and teaching kids. During the week (I did uni part time - couldn't afford full-time) worked at a Rudolph Stiener residential farm for kids with special needs as a relief cook/housemother etc Also worked as a barmaid during this time. God I was busy! Graduated and started work as a journalist, got headhunted into pr and now do corporate communications for our own company. Trying to get some scriptwriting happening - but a bit distracted by kids and horses.

And horseymum, I reallly respect your job as a drycleaner! Must be such hard work, but one with a lovely outcome.

I admit to leaving out a few jobs on my resume depending on which job I am applying for at the time! Mainly because the jobs have been so varied and not everyone can understand that each job brings its own experience valuable in some way to the next one! These are the ones I can remember:

Shop Assistant
Bank Officer
Bar Attendant
Direct Marketer
Computer Operator
Computer Supervisor
Computer Systems Administrator
Stable Rider
Stud Hand
Stud Manager
Poultry Farm Hand

Hello, I'm new here. I was a jillaroo for 12mths then a stablehand/trackwork rider for a few years before becoming a journalist, sub-editor then editor. I moved to the middle of nowhere to marry my husband, tried to freelance but there wasn't enough $$ in that alone so I started doing more and more graphic design work which is keeping the wolf from the door.
I'm pregnant now so I guess that's the next chapter - I've stopped riding just to be safe ... but I think I'm going to go insane.
I bought a new horse (OTT) before I knew I was pregnant and as much as I think he'll be fantastic ...I can't risk a disaster.
The big question is ... will I still have the nerve to ride in a few months' time??

Third Job - Admin for Regional Tourism Board, loved this job (organised local festivals, and winery functions, booked and liased with all the local bed and breakfasts, restaurants and tourism business'), booked and planned peoples trips and itineries..) This job lead to my next one...

Fourth Job - Sales Exec for large conference centre, (dealing with large corporate clients booking and arranging their conferences - quite demanding and sometimes stressful...

Fifth Job - Sales, Marketing and Events Co-Ordinator (main job was product sales, distribution, general marketing and the best part event co-ordinating - which meant going to lots of trade and consumer shows all over the country.

Sixth Job - Mum and all office and admin duities for my husbands company....

Guys, you have all done so much!!!!!!!!!!! I started out in the usual horsey way, working at a riding school to pay for horse addiction!!, went on to uni to study environmental science, after that I completed my apprenticeship as a diesel mechanic, ran my own business for five years with my husband, and at the moment am doing admin/sales for a quarry and gravel yard! The hours eat in to horsey time but the money helps with the feed bills!!! In between I have flipped hamburgers and worked as a service station attendent, and also do hay carting in the semi!

But that peanuts compared to some of you guys......

I started life at 12 at the racing stables, mucking out, picking and then ultimately riding work. Concurrently I worked in my dad's (who was the racehorse trainer) butcher shop serving customers until I was 15 this in total earned me $5.00 per week. I then went onto become a teacher (shortlived) then into working with people with disabilities - in a range of jobs I lasted 15 years. Then into managing a disability service; Then into starting an aged / disabilty organisation; Latest job senior Learning and Development Officer in Local Government. I feel that i have covered the entire employment spectrum.

Hi all,

When I left school I became a beauty therapist, but found it a little too shallow. Then I was a checkout chick too, and then I had two kids, a boy and a girl.

Now I am a registered nurse and hating it, so in July i will be studying to be a primary school teacher and I can't wait.

Hopefully that will be where I stay!!!
