Your job

Here's how it works. You have to write your job title, the thing you like most about it (a pro), and the thing you least like about it (a con), and then also give it an overall rating out of 10.

It's my form of research into different careers, haha. I have resigned from my job because i'm not enjoying it and wanted to see what other people are doing as a form of brainstorming. I'll start anyway...
