I've been sitting around trying to figure out job ideas. For me to work at a local store like Walmart with me living out in a village I wouldn't make much after the taxes and gas money come out. My husband has been trying to get me to become a nurse since his sister does it and she makes around $50,000 after taxes a year and only works 3 days a week doing 12 hour shifts. I don't really want to become a nurse cause I'm not really much of a people person since I'm so shy and nervous around people. I did happen to see that the college offers a 2 year Vet Tech course and we have a lot of vet offices around here. My husband doesn't think they would probably hire me after I took the 2 year course and that I'd have a better chance getting a job as a nurse. I'm stuck at not knowing what to take. I've never went to college and there are some classes I will have to take before I can try to get into the nursing course and I'm not sure what my SAT scores are but I'm going to get that information from my HS. I know the Vet Tech won't make as much money but I'd rather work with the animals. My husband is worrying if I take the Vet Tech course that I might not get hired after putting the time and money into going. I was wanting to know what other people thought. I know there are some Vet Techs on here and probably nurses as well. Which would be better for me to take? Moving to a bigger area isn't an option due to my husband having his job all set up for this area since he is an attorney and now a judge also.
