Who’s Paying…

OK, so it’s Memorial Day(hope everyone is enjoying theirs!!) and I am STUCK at work!! I’ve been here since 8am and hello….it’s 9:23 and I haven’t gotten a call yet!!! So please forgive me for posting so early, I AM BORED!!!

With that being said, I am currently on a jobquest. I will be officially laid of on July 28th, if not sooner. I have been with this company since 2006 but we all know how the economy goes, so goes I. Anyways, here is some material I find interesting and hope you feel the same.

   

Here are the top paying jobs for women found on About.com:

Wow!!! Just think of all the schooling, training and tuition paid for these jobs to make that kind of money!!! I can ONLY imagine what  we mothers would be paid if we actually were rewarded for being a Mom:

Doctor, Lawyer, Mediator, Psychologist,  Referee, Mind Reader, Coach, Chauffeur, Sounding board, the list goes on an on.  

Anyway, gotta go now the calls are starting to drift in, and I have to start my jobsearch so have a safe and blessed Memorial Day, enjoy!
