    Default What's your job?

    So in honour of this shiny new forum, and my apologies if this thread has been done before (I did search), but...where do you all work?

    (I tried to think of as many categories as I could in the 20 I was allowed! In no particular order. Students: answer for your intended career)

    Me, I'm finishing my BSc (biology) next year, heading towards being a research scientist, torn between a MSc and a pHD for now, probably going into endocrinology/related physiology research, preferably in animal models and preferably towards a medical goal.

    And recently I'm toying with the idea of trying to get into vet school (I'm not sure what kind of GPA you need, though) and being an exotic animal vet/veterinary pathologist/specialized surgeon (no clinic! eww!).

    I said "other" because unemployed sort of implies I'm between jobs, but I'm just going to school.

    I do project management in a somewhat technical field, but I don't actually do anything technical, if that makes sense.

    Cashier in a grocery store for now, but that's not exactly career material. Doing art stuff in school.

    I put 'Other' because I didn't want to be lumped in with insurance and sales.

    I am a Business Systems Analyst with a financial corporation. I do systems testing. I got a B.S. in Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution (after starting out in Electrical Engineering and quickly learning I hated it).
