What is your job/occupation?

  • I am an archaeologist by trade but I currently have two jobs to support myself. I have a contract with a Cultural Resource Management firm. Basically we go around the southeast working for private companies that want their land surveyed for archaeological sites and materials. They don't want to get into trouble for building on land that is of historic or prehistoric significance. It's a cool job, I dig holes and find stuff for a living!

    Other than that I do transcription online. It's not the most exciting work but it pays the bills when I don't have an active project through my CRM firm.

  • I'm a research geologist working on carbon sequestration/enhanced oil recovery projects.

  • My title is Desktop Support Technician and I work for a call center company. I started here taking calls back in 2006 and now I currently take care of all the local technology for a 200 seat call center (about 300 computers total). I don't take care of the telecom or network systems though, just the local desktops, laptops, etc.

  • Agricultural extension, it's basically teaching farmers about new agricultural methods, technologies and selling pesticides.

  • Just an ordinary collage/university student of social sciences.

    My dad did that for a long time! Learned lots about pesticides and various bugs that farmers struggle with.

  • I am an in-house mortgage loan originator. Which is a fancy title saying that I can give mortgage financing, but I mostly work as an executive assistant and project specialist for operations. Amongst other things....

  • Truck driver, currently working nights. :-)

  • @ablank2
    Sorry but I have to ask, did you buy this hat?

  • I work in medical writing/quality control at a biotech company.

  • @aldaira That's the job I wanted. ;~;

    Haha, but for now I'm an appointment scheduler at a healthcare organization. Lots of opportunities to move up though so that's nice.

  • I work on an automotive assembly line.

  • @Jergingha oh, cool - yeah, I really enjoy the industry, and the work we do. good luck with the job you have now, and with hopefully finding one you're more invested in in the future!

  • @DMCMaster Not yet, but it's a must buy in my near future.

  • I'm unemployed and volunteer my time as a reserve cop for the past 4 years. And do some things with my local church with plans to expand our community involvement. A week ago, we did a park cleanup operation with a city based non-profit group that takes care of local parks.

  • Global Moderator

    Currently back from a interview as a Graphic Designer at a small company. Hope I get that as I just finished University.

  • I'm a game dev working as a generalist artist in VR. Just launched The Gallery Episode 1 for the Vive, working on Episode 2 right now and porting everything to Rift and PSVR. It's a dream come true.

    Before this Iwas working on hilariously awful 3DS and mobile games, but regardless of how bad they were I was just grateful to be in the industry (I'm a South African who moved out to Canada specifically to pursue a career in games). Actually learned a lot too.

  • I used to be the Store Manager Trainer of a retail chain, but I quit and went back to school to finish my degree.

  • Project Manager for a CRM company that deals directly with Car Dealership's Service department. Our company does calls/emails/etc for dealerships, which made that Firewatch story about that Ford dealerships ad very close to home haha

  • Convocation where I got handed a shiny piece of paper telling the world I have a Bachelor's Degree was at the beginning of the month, in the fall I am going to graduate school. I study Physics, and in grad school I'll be specializing in medical physics. I am kind of feeling it might not be for me before I even start but... We will see.

    I've always wanted to work in the video game industry, but I don't feel like I have many useful skills and just a lot of ideas.
