How old are you and how many jobs have you worked in the past 10 years?

How long did you stay in each job and why did you leave?

How did each job effect you?

Which job did you detest the most and why?

Where do you currently work?

What are your main responsibilities in your current job?

Are you fond of your current job?

Are you planning on leaving this job?

If you would choose a career what would it be and why?

Do you think you might switch your career choice during the future?

Research Question: Why do people change jobs for a short period of time?

Social and Economic Class

I think that social and economic categorize individuals based on their income. I grew up in an upper-middle class, which means that there were no sign of struggling. We live in a decent neighborhood. We travel twice a year. One job is sufficient to take care of any finances and incoming bills. “Working class” people on the other hand, have to constantly work. Some of them have to work two or three jobs. They can’t afford the time off.


I grew-up in a Haitian family. Status, in my culture has to do with your level of education and profession. If you didn’t attend college, you weren’t successful. Having a higher-education meant respect. I believe that education is indeed important, but you don’t necessarily need an education to be successful. I know a large amount of people who are doing very well without a higher education.

My Job

I am currently working at an Assisting Living, as a private-aide. I work with a ninety-eight-year-old wowan from 9:00pm to 9:00am. I provide her with her night medications and give her oxygen before she goes to sleep. Her apartment is very spacious and quite comfortable. I have my own bedroom and bathroom. This job is really cool because I am able to watch television, study, eat, and talk on the phone. I would not change anything from the above!!!
