Out all the profiles I've read so far, I think the bridge tender one is my favorite. I found this one to be very interesting because of how unusual this job is. I never really thought about the people who work on those bridges, and it was interesting to see his perspective on this job. I love when he says "The pay's horrible, the benefits are worse, but the job itself is great. I love it" (Isay 18). This just shows his true love for his job even though it doesn't pay well or give good benefits. It also shows that he has a true love for the job. He also shows that even though the pay and benefits and pay aren’t that great, he still has found his calling. Therefore, this profile is my favorite so far.
This is my family farm, and where I still live
The most practical or safe job that I am currently pursuing is engineering. This job has great demand and has great benefits. I have also thought about this profession because my dad is an engineer and I want to follow in his footsteps. This job also has high job security. These are the main reasons that I am pursuing this job. There are other jobs that I’m also interested in. One of them is being a farmer. I always loved the way my grandpa lived but times have changed and it’s hard for small farmers to make a living anymore. All the business has gone to the larger farms, it’s almost like the tool and die shop that we read about in Callings. Another job that I have also thought about going into is being a mechanic. Like farming the small shops have really taken hits in the past years. This would make it very hard for me to make a living in this profession. In this day in age most people choose careers that they are not tuly satisfied with. This is mainly because of the benefits and wages these other jobs have, and I have fallen victim to this.
