I remember there was a thread titled this two years ago and I thought it was really interesting, so I'm doing it again.

Right now I'm an English teacher in Japan trying to somehow get into Law School! Also doing some translation as a side job (I just translated a photo book that's getting sent to the White House)!!!!

No, really. My scar-covered arms are the small price to pay. Stupid fry oil.

I'd love that job too.

I'm actually disabled and not supposed to work, buuttt… I write novels and create art full time. Used to create logos, mascots and what not for people and help out at conventions, but after not listening to my doctors I ended up going a little too far and now just focus on my art and writing for the time begin. Hopefully it will pan out… when I'm able to face publishers that is.

I hope you're the type of video store managers who can describe the basic plot to whatever movie someone picks out and asks for your opinion on. I love those ones!


I work part time at the same place I study. Its a mixed bag. Sometimes I call students to remind them about their fees. Sometimes I call them to see if they're ok and connect them to support services.

Updates Thursdays.

As a full-time job, I design book covers and illustrate children's books at a publishing company. I wish it was a freelance work-at-home job–I could get it done in half the time. Our computers at work are over 10 years old and it takes forever just to open a JPEG file in Photoshop… :mad:

I'm unemployed now, but I used to teach figure drawing and drawing 1 as a grad instructor at the university. I also taught kids' arts & crafts classes, and printmaking workshops at a couple different art centers and a museum. I was a shop tech in the uni print studio, too.

Also I'm a bartender, which is probably what I'll end up doing once I move back to a city that has something other than redneck pool halls and frat bars.

I do product demonstrations, would anyone like a sample of the latest Minute Made juice? When someone asks I sometimes say I'm in sales, I'm in a sales position that requires plastic gloves and a hair net.

I have a wonderful day job at UPS where my hourly rate is so high I make a living only working 20-25 hours a week and get to spend the rest of my time drawing. So even though I don't get paid to do Wakon Yosai I spend more time working on it then I do anything else so it might as well be my job.

I've had a job for about a month now. ^_^ Just a seasonal position but yay for a job!!!

I'm an interpreter at a state park. My job is to design and present all the programs for the public – like seminars, nature walks, wagon rides, etc. I like it so far. I spend most of my days reading, walking in the woods, watching videos, browsing the internet, and brainstorming. It's weird meeting all the crazy fanatic Civil War buffs (the park is the site of a Civil War battle), but it's entertaining too.

Plus, I get paid twice as much as my last job, which was in a grocery store deli. Before the deli gig (like doing time in a greasy hell…), I was a full time graduate student.

I'm a chef, of sorts… or as I prefer a ‘Culinary Arsonist’.

Prior to that I was training to be an Art teacher…

Prior to that I did pretty much anything to make a buck…

and before that I was at art school!

I guess you could say I've had plenty of Joe Jobs but nothing you could call a career…

I'm a student, but right now I'm working full time at a hardware store and doing illustration/graphic design and gallery work part time. I'd probably be doing art full time, but I don't have the facilities to work with at my parents house and I'm saving for school next year.
