    Default What is it that you do for a living?

    Hey folks!

    I\'m damn curious as to what everyone does for a living around here in the \'real world\' so to speak, especially since we have such a world wide community here.

    Myself, I work as a defense contractor for Lockheed Martin working on the F/A-22 Raptor (for the uninitiated, that\'s a really freakin\' cool fighter jet). I used to build and modify them but now I apply the stealth coating to the aircraft (glorified painter).

    Anyone else? I know there has to be some intersting jobs out there that some of you hold.

    I\'m a lowly web designer.

    Doesn\'t seem that cool after somebody who works with jet-fighters!!!!

    Guess where the injury occurred....

    Right now my paying-the-bills job is as a project/marketing director for a NY finance firm (who has an office out here in Cali), however just this last week I\'ve taken steps in creating my own graphic/web design studio, which is what I enjoy doing (graphics that is, I have a friend covering the web stuff). The best part of it, is that my employer is already signed on as my first and likely biggest ever client, so I\'m off to a flying start. In fact my first job for the new business starts today!! I\'m excited about it.

    Don\'t tell my employer but I\'m hoping that once my business gets really going I can quit the full time job and be my own boss, so I can set my own hours to get back to school for a advanced degree. Stanford here I come!...eventually.

    But yeah, that\'s a major reason for my ever decreasing painting time...:(

    But should be a good thing in the end!

    I work for an insurance company. Before you decide I am evil, I don\'t do claims. I used to, though. Now I write the policies.

    I was really amused when I saw that Mr. Incredible worked for an insurance company. His office looks a lot like mine, too. And oddly enough, just before I saw the movie, I wrote an insurance policy for Pixar! :D

    zora does the same job I do. Our desks are about 15 feet apart. As if we don\'t get enough of each other working together all day, we game together every weekend.

    Default lets see...

    I work for a major Telephone company and have done everything from being a telelphone operator to fixing telephone lines.

    Now I am kind of a jack of all trades where I take care of the technical issues for several Directory Assistance operator offices. This work can vary from fixing a bad keyboard to installing and configuring routers.

    Also, I am the website coordinator and newsletter editor for my labor union. I guess that can be considered a job, since they actually do pay me for it!!

    heh, nice to hear what you\'re doing for living. Anyhow, I\'m working on my thesis studying fetal learning here in Cognitive Brain Research Unit in Helsinki - also doing some other research aid -related things. Soon to graduate and then hopefully to continue studying both born and unborn infants - and start my PhD-studies, of course. :)

    I study linguistics at the Stockholm University, and paint minis. However, I\'m looking for a part time job to pay my bills, and then paint the rest of the time, but it\'s kind of hard to find a job that doesn\'t involve selling things over the phone :flame:

    My \"career\" which is more like a glorified way of paying bills is in the field of graphic arts. I work for a large printing firm in NY where I specialize in prepress services. My areas of experise include color scanning, color management, ICC profiling, and file assembly. To put it simply, I am a printer who plays on a computer all day long.

    Well I just exploit my parents until I can actually finnish all the studies that need to be done ( still 5-6 years I\'d guess :P).
    I did work as a cameraman for fun and to get a bit of money in the US though. Well I don\'t really think it qualifies for a job since it was like somtimes on week end and evenings after school. I got to film all the really boring town meeting, and graduation day (wich was a lot more fun :P).
    And right now I\'m looking to see were I could work this summer for somthing like a month, it\'ll get me some money before I run off to live on my own :flip:

    Default I\'m a journalist/editor.

    I\'m working as an editor in two magazines about publishing, printing and grahic design (both published by the same publishing house) and as a sub-editor in a completely different magazine and theme: beauty. I also do some freelance work for various magaines, writing mostly about beauty/style. I\'m also going to try writing on different topics, for I still haven\'t decided what subject interests me the most in terms of writing about it.

    P.S. Nevermind the typos, please -- I\'ve cut my finger really bad AND I can\'t get used to the new keyboard! :mad:
