I had a job last year that I adored.
I worked in a government laboratory doing all sorts of very sciencey things. I could listen to music on my iPhone all day and just work away. I had all my protocols perfectly memorized and rarely made a mistake.
Got a tedious, repetitive job involving pipettes and centrifuges? I'm your gal.
So, I moved away and had to leave my fabulous job. I've missed it ever since. I was going through a lot of shit when I was working there and it was sort of my happy place.
I recently met someone where I live now who works for the same small division of the same government agency and is doing similar things to what I was doing, in a lab not far from my house. She told me they're hiring. Now.
I'm very, very interested.
They're hiring more than one of the same position, and with my experience and knowing the person I know, my chances are quite good. I'm super, ultra, uber excited about this possibility.
So, tell me about jobs you've had that you loved. Or jobs you think you'd love. This wouldn't quite be my dream job per se, but it's pretty much perfect for what I want right now in the short term. What's your dream job?
