For example...What are your hours? What do you do each day? Do you work for a university or in the private sector? Do you profess as well? Do you work mostly alone, or mostly with others? Do you work with people or animals? Do you travel? What is a typical day like? Do you enjoy it? Is it high stress? Are you burning out? Any advice for someone just starting out? Thank ye in advance - and feel free to email me.
