My real answer:

When I started studying accounting, some people used to say that in a near future accounting wouldn’t exist anymore and all the job would be done by computers. I always found that an absurd idea, once computers cannot take managerial decisions, analyze different options of investments, provide information to owners/customers/government/etc, and an enormous list of other points to be considered.

You all may remember the Enron scandal around 10 years ago. Since that, international accounting standards have become “really international”, i.e. it has become mandatory for most of companies all around the world, including Brazil. It has changed more significantly here in Brazil since 2007, when accounting laws started to be changed to adapt to the international rules.

In short,
- It is a very dynamic profession,
- It is impossible to replace an accountant with a computer, and,
- Knowing English is becoming essential in my profession once we have to be able to both read and interpret the international standards!
Well,

I have been working in the Building Managing area as an admnistrative assistant of a Building Manager called Controller here in Santo André. I love what I do, there are its pros and cons, but in a whole it is very rewarding working here. This is my first job and I started working in 19th February 2009. My work consists in dealing with people through phone, making a good interpersonal and communication skills a demand. I have to be able to work to tight deadlines and work under lots of pressure, once I deal with important documents.

I deal with internal and external correspondence, word processing letters, memos, presentations and so on. I maintain my office equipment, printers and etc. It is not unusual when I go out shopping some things like LCD tv's to the condominiums' movie rooms, or to solve problems with water bills and other paper-related documents. English is not required, once it is not a multinational company (a knowledge of it would be good, since you handle with computer's systems sometimes like me), although I stick to the fact I passed my job interview because I said I speak english.

I guess I am lucky because I am only seventeen and the company gave me an opportunity to work in a job which is of huge reliability, and it makes myself proud.

That's all. I hope you liked my description.

At the moment I'm working as an au pair, so I look after children while living with a host-family.
It's not like a regular job, but it doesn't mean that I don't get to work, because I do.
I quite enjoy because the children I look after are lovely ,sweet and my host-family is relaxed and open-minded.
In a near future I hope to get at a university and hopefully fulfil my ambition. Even that I'm not exactly sure about what I want to do.
I am a teacher. I work in two public schools. My work is a little difficult but I like it. I study English because one day I want to travel to Europe, and I need to speak English then. And I need English to my work, too.

At the moment I'm an accounting analyst after my graduation I'm going to be an accountant. I really enjoy my job, otherwise I wouldn't be working with it ... I just think that my profession could be more recognized for the people in general, we are essential for companys and all they need some accountant, otherwise there would be no businesses and jobs for all of us around the world.

I'm undergraduated in Business and nowadays I'm running my own business. It's a small business but I love my job. However, I want to become a English teacher too. I think it'll be possible as soon as I imagine. I want to share my knowledge with other people.
I am a Secretary, at moment I work in a Administration area where a develop many activities, I like a lot. I have been doing this kind of job for 19 years.
I am retired from two different jobs, and spend my time riding my Harley Davidson, going Pensacola Beach (20 minutes away), working out at the gym, taking photographs, and traveling from Florida to Brasil, so I guess my job now is having fun.

The first job I retired from was the U.S. Army, where I advanced from the rank of Private to the rank of Major, my speciality was Special Forces (Green Beret). The most rewarding part of that job was when a Foreign Government would request assistance and my team would deploy to various countries on "Foreign Internal Development (FID) Missions" or what we, the individuals, liked to call "Nation Building Missions". On these missions we would go to remote areas of a country and help the people build wells for clean water, schools, etcereta, we would also provide health care to the people and teach them how to improve their lives. On some FID missions we would train the local Police or Army units on techniques to combat terrorism and narcoterrorism. Being able to help other people help themselves is one of the most rewarding things that a man can do. Some fo the countries that I have personally been to on FID missions are: Belize, Hounduras, Columbia, Suriname, Philippines, Cambodia, and Thailand.

The second job that I retired from was Structural Steel Estimator, where I would study the plans made by an Architect and determine what type of steel the building would need and how much it would cost my company to fabricate that steel. I would then submitt a sealed bid to the General Contractor to provide the steel and errection. The largest contract I was successful in winning was valued at just over eight million dollars ($8,000,000.00). While this job was interesting it was not as rewarding as my first.

Shortly after I met my new bride on the internet in 2001, I stole her away from her job as an au pair we got married and then WE retired.

I now have a new job whenever I am able to go to Brasil and it is the best job that any man could possibly have. I am now a GRANDFATHER, Maria Eduarda, the most beautiful baby ever, was born on January 2, 2010 in Sao Paulo. So life has been very good to me.

Bacca,

Two small corrections, to make the sentence grammatically correct and read thus: "I'm a systems analyst and I love it.

Yes, You right!
I totaly agree with you.
I never have worked. Actually, I'm doing a degree in languages (I started this year), but I don't know what to do after my graduation.
I've graduated in Public Relations, but I work as an English teacher. Although teaching can be stressful, I can handle it much better than working far from my job, under a lot of pressure, etc etc etc.. I think my job is full of surprises, I love learning before teaching and I have flexible hours (this is great!!!).
