    Just wondering what people here do for a living. I work in a manufacturing facility and I supervise the shipping and quality control departments. I am hoping to get a new job in sales at a local industrial supply company. Funny thing, I went to school for cooking and rest. management. What a career change!

    I teach electronic music at a middle school. I have all the kids who said no to Band, Chorus, and Orchestra. I'm teaching them how to compose music with computers and synthesizers.

    A lot of kids in my classes are the ones who play guitar and bass. The class gives them a lot to think about musically, and I've been able to direct a good number to private teachers. Some of them have formed bands and are getting into music in a way that most school organizations don't deal with.
     
  3. I am a graphic designer, mainly print: brochures, ads, invites, cards, etc. for a large financial organization.

    Stay at home dad with a degree in Computer Graphics Technology. Since I haven't worked in five years, I pretty much need to go back to school and start over with all the changes since I graduated.

    I'm still bustin my hump working full time at the part time job I had in college. It sucks, and I haven't been able to get past the interview stage for a real job. I'm also in the process of starting up a small time statistical consulting gig so maybe I'll at least be able to keep my hands full until I get a real job.

    No foolin?! I love that site. I just signed up for it last week. I haven't bought anything yet, but I usually get in before the close as I have to leave for work before 6:30. Some days I forget to check it, but as soon as I see something I really, really want, I'll grab it. Is it a big organization?
