I have been thinking alot lately about what I want to do when I graduate with my undergrad. I have considered many careers, ranging from nursing and occupational therapy, to law school and guide dog training. Ideally I would love to get my masters in Guide Dog Mobility and Orientation and Mobility, however, the job market and salary are not as promising as I would have hoped. Since Tom also is looking at lower salary positions, it is difficult to consider a job with a teacher's salary in some of the most expensive places to live (ie. San Francisco).
I really want a job that will allow me to still interact with dogs on a daily basis. However, I do see the need for financial security that would allow me to continue having all the dogs that I have (and hopefully my own house with a yard to put them in someday!).
I have thought about doing Occupational Therapy; they are using Animal Assisted Therapy more often in this field, and of course I would love to bring one of my own, certified and trained dogs to work!
Really I have no idea though...which brings me to my question, what do you want to be when you grow up? (Or if 'grown up' anything you wish you could change to?)
