    I work at a web hosting company, where I sell web hosting and web hosting accessories. Sometimes I'm sent to our dungeon (datacenter) to run cable like a good little rackmonkey.

    So. What would you say... ya do here?

    I'm a cook in a small town restaurant.

    I occasionally have help but mostly work by myself. Prepping, cooking and cleaning is my day in a nutshell.

    Pros: get to listen to whatever I want all day long, never hungry, I get paid well (as far as cooks go) since I work solo.

    Cons: when big parties get in its easy to be overwhelmed, long days (10-11 hour days)

    I'm a computer science major but I'm an optician at Sam's Club too. We don't have a doctor at the moment and it sucks right now.

    I'm a production/tour manager for a dance company that uses wireless EL/LEDs on black out suits for their performances. Can be pretty fun when we're out on tour/doing shows. Definitely has allowed me to see more of the world than I thought I'd ever see.

    I am a manager at a forklift company. They're a particular type of forklift that can lift up to fifty thousand pounds. I manage the parts department, which involves maintaining inventory, ordering parts, making deals with vendors, selling parts, finding sources for cheaper parts, etc. I spend a lot of time looking at machine schematics. It is sort of strange to me that I know what I'm doing, because I always thought that sort of knowledge was beyond me. Anyway, being a boss sucks, aside from being able to fire racists. The only thing good about it is they pay me well.

    I send fire missions to shoot rockets and missiles up to 300KM away, publicly. It's not really as cool as I thought it'd be.

    And I do photography on the side.

    I'm a college senior graduating in May with degrees in Political Science and Russian language & civilization (9+ semesters of language courses + lots of culture courses). I also work in the dorms as an RA, so I get free housing + some money.

    No idea what's next after I graduate. Need to figure that out :teethsmile:

    i tore a hole in the fabric of time Moderator

    Freelance Writer/Editor, but take any freelance work I can get/think I can give a good product for. Currently got a gig writing for an education website conglomerate. I've edited novels, cleaned empty apartments for a company before new tenants moved in, record phrases for voice recognition software, etc.

    I'm also trying to foster a writing career by getting into the habit of writing reviews of books I read, so I can develop an eye for things needed/excelled at in craft. I've written a novel, but it's got a pretty extensive edit phase that I'm currently working through.

    Still looking for that adult job.
