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.

Here... I'll help add plenty more people's occupation in one small post. This question was asked a while ago in this thread (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=128440&highlight=tutor). History loves to repeat itself. :D

Middle management at a Park District. I oversee the division that works with people with disabilities. I have been married for 13 years (wife does not play :-( ) and we are expecting our first child in a month. I am guessing my limited gaming times is going to get even more limited.

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.

Chief Technical Officer of a non-profit dedicated to making the US government (especially Congress) more transparent and accountable to the voters. We track their activities, build databases of votes and earmarks and campaign donations, etc. It's something of a dream job :)

In my spare time, I write software and (as yet unpublished) fantasy & sci-fi novels.

Full-time student trying to decide if continuing a 4.0gpa is worth the trouble. :rolleyes:

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.

Meanwhile...

Priors:
Occupational safety and health technician
to
Self-employed remodeling construction
to
Contracted custom cabinets installer
to
Truck driver on a dairy delivery route
to
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. ;)
