I want to ask you guys on how to respond when people ask you "What do you do for a living?"

I seem to have trouble answering this question since I'm not currently employed, but I'm a licensed PT. I'm currently looking for a job and until I get one, this question always seem to catch me off guard. I can't say I just graduated PT school because that was years ago and it took me multiple attempts to pass the NPTE.

You don't do anything for a living if you are unemployed. "I'm looking for work"
