Why do you stay in your present job?

Because I don't have time to find a new one right now! That and the job I'm in at the moment is a part-time while-I'm-a- student job. When I finish uni in the summer I will move to something more ambitious, but for the moment having a job where I can turn up, and switch my brain off for the rest of the day makes a nice change from the rest of my life!

My present job is freelancing. I'm actually between jobs. I just finished a freelance editing job a week ago, and it's nice to have a break and get to sleep in and clean around the house. I'm hoping I will be jobless for just long enough to get everything in order.

Because it's kind of a cool one.

It's just a job used to pay for my car while I go to college. I deliver pizza by the way, if you wanted to know.

Because I'm good at my job. I love working with kids and I don't mind going to work. The pay is not the greateast but the benefits are great.

I stay in my present job because it's more than a job. It's my life's work. I love it.

Because men may work from sun to sun, but woman's work is never done.

I'm not. I'm getting out as quickly as I can. My boss is a total freak that has major anger problems.

1. I have a deadline for quitting which makes each day semi- bearable. 2. It's all about the "big bucks."

Lowell, MA USA

I was just laid off from my job. I stayed cause I liked the work - graphic design and the pay was very good. I freelance so hopefully it will get busy and I'll go back in a month or so. Right now I'm getting my resume and portfolio together.

Janet, 46
E. Brunswick, NJ USA

Because i have no skills and im too stupid to get any other job. I'm just trying to survive I've given up on ever being happy at any job

Job security, especially in this rough IT industry.

Henry, 27
Levittown, PA USA

Because I am completely INSANE...Why else would anybody who feels the way I do about my job...stay in such a place...I am completely insane...

Because I enjoy it and I like my co-workers.
