OT (Sorry) - What's your job?
« on: June 02, 2004, 08:28:44 PM »
Hey, I've been wondering this for a while, sometimes people refer to thier jobs, but this can be a way to get a better idea of who we all are.  (Sorry for the off-topic post, but this is a community-building theme, and I can't ask it anywhere else  :)  ).

I have a summer job as a laborer for a custom home construction company.  I do odd jobs and lift heavy things and carry heavy things and set heavy things down.  

So, what's YOUR job?

*&^*&^ of all trades. ;)

These days just doing odd computer nerd, electrician, and handyman jobs and now working one day a week at the desk of a bed and breakfast inn. :lol:

One day I hope to answer that question as "amp & effect builder".

Take care,

Agricultural systems scientist.  
My collegues call me "the smiling assassin". I love that.  In science, to be despised by others is to know that you're really on to something.  8)

Assistant manager of a pizza place =/

Only reason i haven't taken my own store, is cause i want to go back to school...

i started college when i was 16... and had problems there with a teacher and the school i transfered from... my credits are FUBARed

I really want a rewarding, and challenging job... something that not only keeps my hands busy, but also keeps my mind busy. So many times at work i find myself just frustrated due to the lack of brain stimulation =/

heh

Producer/Engineer.

I turn your paper boy into a rock star.

It's a fun career, though sometimes the lack of steady hours or steady work can be harmful to my health. I get to play with all the gadgets I build and I'm surrounded by interesting musicians all day. Not a bad deal.

i'm actually schooled in off-set lithography, but no one knows what that is anymore! i thought it was fun and artistic! little did i know that the computer Could/Would take all that away! ( actually it's all my fault! I was to concerned with art and not money, so i never paid attention to the future!) since then i've been a cook, ( of course!) truck driver, electrician, transmission parts salesman, doorman, bartender, rockstar, landscape "artist", ohh... and let's not forget... oaff! the one job i have not had but could easily get( god forbidding!) junkie!
but as of right now!....... i just work as shipping and receiving manager for a high-voltage supply house, boom- shaka- lakka boom! ( lol!) :twisted: just remember to  let those mylar balloons loose!

Photoshop Jockey for many of the ad agencies in the Boston area. Before the Mac /DTP revolution I did the same thing, only with airbrush, film, and assorted nasty chemicals. Also operated a behemoth of an analog drum scanner that I salvaged the massive sixty pot front panel from when they junked it.
