What is your job/occupation?



  • 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. :-)

  • 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.



  • @Carmichael the two guys who started bioware were doctors. just sayin :)

    I can relate to that, but I want to give you some advise up front: think real hard if that is exactly what you want to do before actually pursuing that dream.

    I wanted to work in the music industry for a long time. And now I am, as a marketing/brand manager at a dance music company. I really enjoy the work, as I managed to turn my biggest pasttime into my everyday job. But that change, from having something as a form of entertainment in my spare time turn into something related to work, kind of 'destroyed' the magic of it. Now that I know how the music industry works behind the scenes, how the politics are, how the marketing works and deals get made, most things I used to think were great are not so great anymore because I can 'see through them'. I still enjoy my job and will keep working in this industry, but being a fan of music and working in the music industry as a professional are two completely different fields.

    A few years back, I thought about overthrowing that music dream and getting into the gaming industry instead. But I didn't. Because I didn't want my second biggest pasttime to lose that 'magical' side as well. And I'm glad I didn't, because now games keep that special touch for me. If I would've switched industries, I wouldn't have been crying at that Sony conference the way I was now.
