My parents left school at young ages. My Dad I only met last November - he's a tram driver.
My Stepdad is an electrician, and my Mum's done various supermarket/bank/play area/fast food restaurant jobs in the past, and is now registering to become a childminder.
Their careers have had no impact on me really. My Mum always said she wanted me to do well for myself, but I did how I did without that influence.
My parents were both in the police force, Dad's retired now though.
I'm going to study English/History this year. Sooo .. yeah.
My ma was a Nursing Sister of Intensive Care Unit
Pa runs his Lorry Haulage company.
I'm training to be a nurse.
My mum is a nurse and my dad is a builder.
I'm going to study Law this year...
Both my dad and sister are doctors and my mum is a nurse, but i could never see myself working in a hospital. All our conversations at home revolve around 'diseases', 'operations' etc. I can't stand it. I think it may have even influenced my fear being in a hospital, let alone working in one.
I'm more of an artsy type. My dad, beng Iranian, is not so impressed.
My dad is the CEO of an energy management company, and my mom acts as the secretary. Neither went to university.
I on the otherhand want to eventually complete a doctorate in Clinical Psychology.
My Dad writes speeches for a government minister; he's really put me off of working for the civil service (or at the very least doing what he does!). But then again, writing speeches has never really been my forté, I was always better at presenting them. My Mum is a secretary... and I don't really want to do that!
I want to enter the police force... dunno where that's come from, though!
Not really. Dad's a farmer, and mum's not particularly qualified, but tends to do odd home-making type jobs to get by.
Yeah, my dad is a managing director and he is what sparked off my interest in business, and I mentioned him a lot in my personal statement. My mother on the other hand is a midwife, and I cant think of anything worse than pulling a barely alive bloody naked child out of a gaping and probably bleeding vagina.
Dad is a security guard and mum is now medically retired but was a sales rep. I'm training to be a teacher.
Wow, there are a lot of very rich families on here based on the job descriptions.
My Dad is a prison officer but worked with a broken hand for 6 months (he's far too tough for his own good) so he's on leave or whatever at the moment. My Mom is a pre-school teacher.
Neither of their professions have any influence on what I study... the only way it influences me I guess is how I've been trained to fight since I was 5 by my Dad due to the dangerous nature of our area, and part of what he taught me is needed for his job. That's the only thing I can think of.
My Dad is a financial advisor... he keeps saying he wants me to go into it, so I can take over his business when he retires. But my heart wouldn’t be in it. I’ve done bits of work experience for him, and I just find it boring and uninspiring.
My Mum doesn’t work.
I think my Dad’s job has influenced me in the sense that I definitely wouldn’t want to work in anything to do with finance. Aside from that, no.
lol, not in the slightest. My mum hasn't even got A Levels and she works as a bursar in a primary school (no chance of any career like that every coming my way, I'm crap at maths!); my dad has a degree from what is now Hertfordshire University and works as a Senior Account Manager for Oracle.
I, however, am looking at going into teaching languages, or into journalism. Languages run in my family, as does teaching, but my parents were never really that way inclined. My sister is training to be a doctor.
neither of my parents went to uni
my mum used to be a fraud investigator but now works for my dad / housewife, and my dad worked in them motor trade for much of my childhood, but is now owns a successful business [still in the motor trade]
so neither have influenced me in the slighest to read social anthropology
but i guess some sort of work ethic rubbed off, and they've always said the whole "we want you to have everything we didn't" sorta thing
