I know this is probably a old topic but I thought it might be interesting. In getting to know the players better I was curious as to what your job is or are you a full time student? I'm an office manager for a small manufacturing company.

I work about half the year as a Mer....err...consultant. Some folks call it "public relations". I actually find myself in a moral conundrum most of the time. When I am home I get depressed alot thinking about it. The world isn't a nice place and I am not so naive to think I'm making it any better. Thank Bog for the slow times like now.

And I get paid to surf the forums....

Only at graduation. Beyond that it's what you know/can do more than a number on a piece of paper most employers will never see. ;) My first AA, I carried out a 3.85 - and no one but my mother ever really cared after graduation.


Occupational safety and health technician
Self-employed remodeling construction
Contracted custom cabinets installer
Truck driver on a dairy delivery route
Sales route merchandiser (pre-orders)

(to which some would wonder - what happened to that programming degree ya picked up along the way??) :confused: Heh.

Well, there were no game programming programs around here when I got my AS, so let it slide off to the side - I never signed up for a suit-in-a-cubicle routine... Few years later game coding programs started popping up, but I'd already fallen off the log at that point. :rolleyes::(

...and now ya know a few more things ya never cared to know. :D

I always made jokes that THAT would be the best job in the world...:D:D:D

...until the Ob-gyn in the office I worked in years ago reminded me that the patients he sees mostly aren't showing up cuz they're healthy.:eek::( He had a good point, and given that I had to do contact interviews for a lot of his patients - I couldn't disagree. ;)
