    What do you do for a living ?

    OK lads and lassies.... I know that we have some students here and some retired guys and gals. We also have some folk that are 'resting' betwen jobs.

    What do you do for a living ?
    What did you do for a living ?
    What evening / weekend / holiday work do you do for pocket money (students)
    Do you do more than one job ? ( I know some of you have several)
    If you have done different jobs in the past, what were they ?

    Me ?

    Started as a hairdresser when I left school
    Went to work in a factory just after i got married because the money was better (pharmacuticals)
    Left to have kids
    Did several poorly paid jobs at home....but one led me to where I work now.
    So ...carried on with the homework for B&W Loudspeakers
    Started part time for B&W when kids went to school
    Went full time as kids grew up (also my mum came to live with me )
    Moved from Operator to Supervisor
    Up from Supervisor to Production Manager
    Took on Additional role of Training manager .....

    Still awake ????

    I'm sure you guys have done some really interesting jobs.....we'd love to hear all about them.

    22 years USN; 20 years LEO; completely retired now and taking care of our 200 acre farm. I lease out 170 acres to other farmers to use and mostly care for about 25 acres of hay fields and our resident horses. Making smart financial investments along the way has given us more $$$ than we really need.

    I teach 7th grade social studies this year.
    I also teach a college class in Western Civilization.
    I also am the Music Director at my church, and oversee all the music in a congregation of 500.

    At home, I am a full-time nurse for my husband, and mom to 2 college age kids still at home.

    I'm a blood-sucking parasite on the back of society. Guess what I do ?


    I used to teach English to African PhD and MA university students in Kenya ; before that, I waitressed (badly) whilst doing English Lit degrees. I was the kind of waitress who, when asked for a glass of Southern Comfort, gave the customer a warm and friendly hug.

    I look forward to winning the lottery, and sailing around the world on my yacht, staffed entirely by Colin Firth with no shirt on.

    truth is, before i was a cop, i was a registered nurse, then a trial court law librarian. then i did security for the biggest resort in the keys. and then busted shoplifters for walmart, jc penny and publix. i met so many cops in the zone they invited me to go to academy. i was much older than all the recruits, and it was hard, but i did it.

    oooo Well, here is a novel....
    After high school I jumped right into a manual drafting job (yep had to have letter perfect printing hours of practice) and I drafted maps and seismic lines.
    Went for 1 year of college, general drafting and hated it. Jumped back into the drafting with an oil company. since then I have been in the oil and gas biz for over 20 years, still drafted, but worked up to topographical maps and seismic interpretation. Took time off for 2 kids, did a short stint in a bank, and a short sting in a book store and short stint in a car decal shop (loved it) . Out of dire necessity I worked as a recruitment agent and hated it, then back into the O& G field where I am currently. I work for a great company that builds battery packs for down hole well equipment as well as we develop electronic support products. I currently am the shipper/purchaser.
