I'm a cart attendant at a Super Target. It's essentially a meathead job, so it gives me lots of spare brainpower to think about things.

actually, government jobs normally have a decent salary, great benefits and often great hours. even better on the civilian side of that.

I'm a global mod on Seventy2's forums. But he doesn't pay me crap!


Actually, due to the fact that I fear commitment, I find it difficult to go out with the intention of finding an actual job. I'm very picky, also, and will only work certain jobs.

Ideally, I would have a warehouse job where I would package and/or crate/shelf things. I could do heavy or abundant items, so that wouldn't be a problem.

I don't want anything retail or behind a computer. Even though I sit behind a computer for hours every day.

My current job of watching dogs with my uncle is sufficient. I don't have much need for money at the moment since the only thing I spend it on is gas and presents for other people. I would like to help my mother pay for food on occasion, though.

I paint miniatures and build models on commission. I keep getting asked when I'm going on Jeopardy or Who Wants to be a Millionaire or when am I starting my career in stand-up comedy. 26 unfinished manuscripts and counting…

I'm on disability from my security job because of a recent car accident. Prior teacher of Social Studies, historical researcher and US Army tank crewman and certified instructor.

I'm working one of those crappy jobs that you only have so you can pay for school and eventually get a better job. I'm sure many of you can relate. I work at a gas station currently. Woo-hoo.

But, if I can finish college, I'm hoping to be a 3D modeler/animator for a game studio. That'd be sweeeeet.

damn, so many people here have a job way better than mine. then again waiting tables isn't exactly difficult to top, heh..

i think i've just fallen into that groove anyone in a non-career job gets into after doing the same thing for too long. school's a great way to break the monotony, i think… though i'd be lying if i said i wasn't looking forward to finishing.
you know why birds don't write their memoirs? because birds don't lead epic lives, that's why. who'd want to read what a bird does? nobody. that's who.

Technical support and billing over the phone for… uh, a software company.

oh jobs, I've worked in nearly ever fast food/pizza chain. I've also been a screen printer, repo'ed cars, and worked as a farm hand castrating goats and bailing hay.

I'm lucky 'cause I actually really like my job now. I publish comics for BOOM! studios. :)

I work in a fish nutrition research lab to determine the best ingredients and feeds to feed the fishes, btw, almost all the fish on the market are grown in fish farms across the world, caught fish are fed the pigs and chicken babies. We also use the fish to re-stock lakes where some fish species populations are struggling (but that's done by farms not my lab).

That's my job for now, I want to eventually become a vet :P but really who knows what the future will bring, maybe I'll end up a house wife with 50 kidletts lol!!

House wives are rare creatures these days. Not because it's wrong, but the cost of living is so high in most places it's almost impractical to do so.


I have a job. My experiences are guy standing naked on the front lawn holding a 7MM rifle with a 5x scope, multiple traffic accidents, wrestling people to the ground, lots of paper work, a damn load of investigation, and dealing with people during the worst moments of their life. Guess what I do? Yeah, I'm a “paper pusher” for the city *wink wink*

Outside of that, I also do video and graphical advertising and web design. Programs I'm familiar with are Quark, Illustrator, Flash, Photoshop, Vegas 6.0 Professional, Studio Professional, Audicity, Fruity Loops, Word, Power Point, Excel, Outlook, Outlook Express, FrontPage, and things like that. Oh, and former Military Police with the Army.

Press monkey.

I work for a printing company running a “digital press” AKA glorified color copier. Previously in the form of a Kodak Nexpress that we're now replacing with an HP Indigo.

Before that I was (in order) a stock crew chief, stock boy, telemarketer, and worked at an art store doing pretty much everything but payroll.

EDIT: I miss having a job where I can do my hair and nails purple…but printing folks are, as I've come to learn, more notoriously bigoted “good old boys” than people I've worked with on loading docks. So no purple hair since I've been at this job.

I just copy/pasted most of this from my profile. I am presently a student studying Digital Design & Computer Graphics & additionally taking drawing courses. Wild as it may seem, I do hope to be able to generate a modest income upon graduating for myself either illustrating, playing music, or maybe even writing. Honestly, I wouldn't particularly mind it being a combination of any of the three. I'm not concerned in the least that before any of the previously stated skills, or abilities, allow me to accomplish that task, I'll have to continue to work a 9 to 5 job like most folks. Other than that, I am a Terran bio-mass often referred to as a Human Being. However, I support myself presently by working about two part-time jobs with some writing and graphic design freelancing on top. I'd rather not say what they are, but they all fortunately pay regularly, and steadily enough to help me keep a roof over my head, clothes on my back, food in my stomach, and very much out of debt.

… well sort of… I teach Cartoon Art at Primary schools and have done so for over 15 years now. I do it Extra-Curricular so only work one hour a day at it, unless I am getting a new school started, then I teach all day for free for a few days…
…It's been good though… supported a family of three, been my own boss etc…
